Whitney Houston: A Music Video Tribute

Her greatest single performance likely took place on a football field, as Whitney Houston is responsible for the most impressive, moving national anthem rendition in Super Bowl history.

But the iconic singer also sold over 200 million albums worldwide and collected six Grammy Awards. She’s one of the most successful female solo artists of all-time, paving the way for stars of today such as Mariah Carey and Rihanna.

Now, in the wake of her tragic passing, we present a video tribute to Whitney and ask readers for their fondest memories of the legend…

It’s a doubly great day to be an Adam Lambert fan today.

First, the singer announced that he would front an upcoming tour with the remaining band members of Queen, hitting up various arenas and stadiums in honor of late singer Freddie Mercury.

Now, Lambert has released the official music video for his latest single – off his soon-to-be-released album – “Better Than I Know Myself.” In it, we see two sides of the singer, as a pair of personalities square off; one is all dark and leather-y, the other calm, serene, sipping on tea even.

Which will win out? Watch and see what happens:

5 Things We Learned At Billboard’s Women In Music Event

Daily Makeover was lucky enough to be invited to Billboard’s Women in Music awards event, featuring Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj. Taylor was named Billboard’s Woman of the Year and Nicki was given the title of Billboard’s Rising Star. Not only was the Crest 3D White sponsored event loads of fun, but it turned out to be pretty informative. Here are just a few of the things we learned:

1. Nicki’s Attitude Comes From Her Hair

Nicki is no stranger to makeovers. In fact, she showed up on the runway sporting long blonde Rapunzel-like locks. During the awards ceremony she said, “I love changing my look. Hair changes my mood. When I put on pink, I feel euphoric.”

2. Taylor is sporting some new bangs.

Taylor told us that she had been thinking about cutting bangs before, and when someone suggested clip-in bangs for a photo shoot, she just went for it! “It’s fun to change up your look, and I never change it up.” She wore her hair straight for the event, but we’re interested to see how the bangs look with her curly hair.

3. Nicki Minaj eats humble pie.

Nicki has a larger-than-life persona (the clothes, the hair, her own Barbie coming out soon), so we were pleasantly surprised to see what a sweet, humble woman she is. During her acceptance speech, the rapper talked about the many doors that were slammed in her face when she tried to break into the music industry. “I’m no different from any other person, except that I gave it one last try.” She even shed a few tears during her acceptance speech, saying, “Even though they aren’t here, I know my fans will feel it when I say, Barbs, thank you so much!”

4. Taylor Swift really is that nice.

There are those that find Taylor’s gratitude and good manners to be merely an act. Turns out, that couldn’t be further from the truth. She makes eye contact with everyone she meets, she smiles and introduces herself (as if we didn’t know who she is!), and she continues to be thankful for the awards and support she’s given. Katie Couric even asked the starlet if she ever wants to rebel, and Taylor answered, “No. People always ask why they don’t see me falling down drunk at clubs. Because I don’t feel like it!”

5. Nicki’s changing some things up for her sophomore album.

After giving her acceptance speech, Nicki sat down with ABC’s Robin Roberts, who wanted to know about her upcoming album. “I can’t say too much, (but for this album) I just don’t care anymore. I’ve been trying to please everyone, but now I’m just having fun.”
