When it comes to Sunday night's Grammy Awards, it's Frank Ocean's world and the rest of the nominees are just swimming in it.
With six nominations for his album Channel Orange total, the neo-soul sensation will go head-to-head with what are essentially four rock acts for album of the year.
But none of them rocked Channel Orange's artistic vision, with its intricately woven soundscapes and storytelling.

Carly Rae Jepsen has sold millions of copies of her Grammy-nominated smash single "Call Me Maybe" and had a successful U.S. debut album Kiss – so did the Canadian pop star blow wads of cash on gifts for herself this Christmas?
Jepsen says one of her biggest splurges this holiday season was a present for her father. "I'm getting him the same guitar that James Taylor plays," Jepsen told PEOPLE just before Christmas. "And I'm getting it engraved."

What do Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Flo Rida, One Direction and Carly Rae Jepsen have in common?
If you answered, "Swag," first, please leave that word in 2012. If you answered, "They have more money than I do," well, you're probably right. But they're also featured in this epic mashup of the biggest U.S. hits of 2012. Yet again, DJ Earworm has cut together the biggest singles of the year, from "Call Me Maybe" to "What Makes You Beautiful," creating one masterful pop song, "The United States of Pop."

Everybody danced like a galloping horse, thanks to "Gangnam Style."
Everyone sang "Call Me Maybe" – even Barack Obama. (Well, sort of.)
And everyone wondered why Zooey Deschanel asked, "Siri, is that rain?" when she was standing by a window in an iPhone commercial.
These and more were the viral videos of the year – the clips you posted on Facebook, shared on Twitter and clustered around your coworker's computer to watch over and over.

Listen up fellas, "Call Me Maybe" singer Carly Rae Jepsen says she only gives out her phone number to men who are assertive.
"I really like guys who have confidence, but not the cocky over-the-top confidence," Jepsen, 26, told PEOPLE at the U.S. Open's annual Arthur Ashe Kids Day on Saturday in Queens, N.Y. "Guys with the right type of confidence are really sexy."
One man with the right amount of self-assurance and charm seems to be singer-songwriter Matthew Koma, 25, whom Jepsen recently started dating. When asked about her new beau, she coyly said, "He's a really great guy and really talented."

It was a night all about choice! The 2012 Teen Choice awards saw surfboards given to fan-chosen actors, actresses and singers. And, of course, they had some choice words and moments of their own Sunday night at Los Angeles's Gibson Amphitheatre. In case you missed the tween-tastic action, here are the highlights:
1. Twilight Gives Back
For once, the Twilight smash franchise wasn't just winning awards – the stars were giving them away!
After Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner picked up their surf boards for their on-screen performances, the leading vampire was feeling rather generous.
"I don't know if I'm allowed to – can I give this to the audience?" Pattinson asked, before handing his summery prize to fans in the audience. Stewart then followed his example and also gave away her award.
