Lady Gaga Nabs Two Oscar Nominations
Lady Gaga may soon be an Oscar winner. The singer was nominated for not one, but two Academy Awards yesterday, Best Actress for “A Star Is Born,” and Best Original Song for the movie’s hit tune, “Shallow.”
Gaga has actually made history with her two nominations. She is the first person to be nominated in those two categories simultaneously. Mary J. Blige was also nominated in two categories at the same time last year, but she was nominated or Best Supporting Actress for “Mudbound,” and Best Original Song for the track “Mighty River.”
Meanwhile, one person who didn’t doubt that Gaga could do it is her good friend Tony Bennett, who took to social media to congratulate her on the accomplishment. Dear Lady - I always knew you could do anything at the highest level of artistry,” he tweeted. “Congratulations on your Oscar nominations! Love, Tony.”
Halsey Returns To Number One
Halsey has returned to number one. The singer’s hit “Without Me” rebounds from the runner-up spot to re-take the “Billboard” Hot 100 for a second, non-consecutive, week.
Meanwhile, last week’s number one, Post Malone and Swae Lee’s “Sunflower (Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse), drops one spot to three, although it tops both the Streaming Songs and Digital Song Sales charts, with Halsey’s track at two on both of those charts.
Coming in at three this week is Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode,” followed by Panic! At The Disco’s “High Hopes” at four, and Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next” at five.
Niall Horan And Shawn Mendes Tease Collab
Niall Horan and Shawn Mendes fans have been dying for a collaboration for a while and it looks like it may be happening.
When a fan asked Niall on Twitter if he was ever going to work with his friend, Niall responded, “We’re gonna try,” to which Shawn replied, “We are going to,” and Naill responded back “Let’s do it then.”
And it seems Niall’s One Direction bandmate Liam Payne was feeling a little left out, adding, “Can I play the triangle?" While Shawn and Niall didn't respond, their fans were definitely excited at the thought.
