Like I’ve always said a BET awards show is never complete unless the Queen is involved! It was confirmed yesterday that Beyoncé along with husband Jay-Z would be in attendance at this years awards show. Aside from the fact these two would be competing in some of the same categories, word on the street is that the Creole Lady Marmalade could very well take the stage in some form or capacity.[NecoleBitchie]

With a very successful music run in 2011 music’s reigning Queen Of Billboard Adele, who is set to return to the stage at the Grammy Awards on Sunday came under attack recently when Chanel fashion director Karl Lagerfield put down the singer when he called her ‘Too Fat’.
The fashion icon did however go on to say “she has a beautiful face and a divine voice.” The comments stirred many critics and fans who called for the boycott of Chanel as long as Lagerfield was associated with the fashion house. Although some would cower and go into hiding Adele remains head high concentrating on her 5 Grammy Nominations and singing once again in front of millions of fans…

Thank you Sweet Baby Jesus for answering my late night prayers and seeing that Adele graces the stage at the Grammy Awards this year.
After an abrupt health scare and emergency surgery things weren’t looking so great for the best selling artist of 2011 as her singing voice was in serious jeopardy. Well after going under the knife in November (recurrent vocal cord hemorrhage), the UK singer WILL be in attendance where she will also be performing. The Recording Academy confirmed this on today (Jan 31th)
Adele tweeted the exciting news today as well :“Ima be, Ima be singing at the Grammys. It’s been so long I started to forget I was a singer! I can’t wait, speak soon xx”

Who but Adele??? The reigning Queen of Billboard will surely end the year on a good note and for great reason..
The (RIAA) Recording Industry Association of America has awarded the singer a quadruple- platnum plaque for her sophomore album.
You earn platinum status when you sell one million units or over. Well, she has sold over 4 million units, I thought she was banking from her first album but it looks like the second album has her pockets “rolling in the deep).
Stores haven’t been able to keep her album on the shelves since it was released in February. It only took her one month to go platinum.
Her hit single “Someone Like You” reached double -platinum status by itself, racking in over 2 million U.S. downloads. (source)

I keep telling people Adele is the truth and after she disappears from Billboard she pushes her way back to #1 without little to no competition in her radar. ’21′ is one of the best selling albums of 2011 and if that isn’t enough she’s breaking records in the process by having the first British album in 23 years to rack up 12 weeks at the top of the US albums chart.
’21′ has managed to take in 2.9 million in album sales in the US and has been anchored in the Top ’3′ since debuting on the charts 24 weeks ago.
