No, this isn't the plot of a Disney movie – at least not yet. But, somewhere, a screenwriter is probably getting ready to type the opening scene.

18 Legendary Artists with Fewer Grammys Than Lorde

Originally posted 01/27/2014 01:00PM

When Lorde won two awards (song of the year and best pop solo performance) at the 2014 Grammys, she didn't just become the third-youngest winner in the ceremony's history. Barely a year into her career, the 17-year-old Kiwi also surpassed dozens of industry legends in the great list of Grammy winners in the sky.

Whether they've only won one Grammy, or are still waiting for their first golden gramophone entirely, here are some of the musical superstars who have taken home fewer Grammys than Lorde. (A note: We're only counting competition Grammys. Lifetime achievement awards don't count, nor do inductions into the Grammy Hall of Fame.)

What would Kurt Cobain look like today? How about Jimi Hendrix? That was the question Sachs Media Group recently asked of photo restoration and manipulation company PhoJoe: The end result is this series of hypothetically-aged portraits of deceased musicians. Enjoy the twinge of nostalgia, then tell us – what do you speculate each of these musicians would be doing right now?

Did Taylor Swift Enjoy the Grammys More Than Anyone?

Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake & More Grammy Performances Inspire Grammy Buzz

Originally posted 02/11/2013 10:50AM

The Grammys are called music's biggest night for a reason.

With performances from Justin Timberlake, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Jack White, Frank Ocean, Miranda Lambert and more, the audience rocked their way through the 3.5 hour broadcast.

But no one was having more fun than Swift, 23, who was seen singing along and dancing to almost every song played throughout the night. But the singer-songwriter had plenty of reason to celebrate – earlier that day, she learned she won a Grammy for her song with The Civil Wars, "Safe & Sound," which appeared on The Hunger Games soundtrack.

Grammys 2013: Who Put on the Best Show of the Night?

Originally posted 02/11/2013 01:15AM

It's the only awards show that's as much a concert as it is a parade of stars. So, who brought the goods Sunday night at the Grammys?

There were plenty of memorable moments, both solo performances and the duets and collaborations for which the Grammys are so famous.

Justin Timberlake made his much-anticipated – and, it turned out, sepia-toned – return to the Grammys, with help from Jay-Z, singing "Suit & Tie" and "Pusher Love Girl." That came soon after Taylor Swift opened the show with a flamboyant Alice in Wonderland take on her hit "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together."

Snoop Dogg Changes His Name to Snoop Lion

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Snoop Lion.

Yes, the artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg has renamed himself after he says he underwent a spiritual and artistic rebirth in Jamaica.

While recording his album Reincarnated in the Caribbean country, he developed a traditional reggae style. The result is a three-part project: a reggae album, documentary and coffee-table photo book, all under the name of Snoop Lion.

"I have always said I was Bob Marley reincarnated," Snoop, 40, told reporters at a news conference, according to The New York Times. "I have always been a Rastafari." (Marley's son, Rohan, gave his blessing at the news conference, which was held at Miss Lily's, a Caribbean eatery in New York.)

Idol's Fantasia Writes Song for Teen Moms

Originally posted 02/07/2005 08:00AM

DEDICATED: American Idol champ Fantasia Barrino is singling out young mothers on one of the tracks off her new album, Free Yourself. The recently minted 20-year-old star said the song "Baby Mama" is for teenage moms struggling to support themselves and their children, the Associated Press reports. Some critics have complained that the song condones having children out of wedlock, but Barrino, who has a 3-year-old daughter herself, said that is not the case. "If I could have waited, I would have," she said.
