No Single Musical Artist Has Had An Album That's Gone Platinum In 2014 Yet!

| Filed under: Music MinuteBusiness BlitzGIFs

There's still a couple of months to go!

But this is coming down to the wire!

The year 2014 has yet to see ONE single musical artist's album hit the platinum status!

That's right! No musicians have seen their album sales pass the one million mark which is a lot different from this point last year where five albums had already gone platinum!

Although it's not all such dire news for the music industry as there's been one album that's sold A LOT of albums this year - 3.2 million to be exact - but that album isn't coming from one single artist but rather is from a movie soundtrack!

The Frozen soundtrack to be specific!

And that number will most likely increase even more because, as the source Forbes explains, "with winter coming, that number is sure to rise."

So at least Disney is doing well these days!

Although they always seem to be doing good!

All of this doesn't mean people aren't listening to music - it just means they're listening to it in other ways!!!

Things sure ain't how they used to be!!! That's for sure!!!

Apple just debuted the new iPad Air 2 — which is thinner than a pencil, or two OG iPads stacked! Isn't technology AH-Mazing?!

Along with the slender design and touch sensor recognition, SVP Phil Schiller said the tablet will be featured in three colors (silver, space grey, and gold), have better power with an A8 chip, an amped up iSight 8 megapixel camera as well as an improved FaceTime lens.

The price will range between $499 to $699 depending on the amount of storage — and the company is taking orders starting tomorrow! How thrilling!

WOWZA!

Martha Stewart has reportedly fired almost 50 employees in a town hall meeting that took place on Wednesday - nearly one week after former CEO Lisa Gersh left to head Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop.

We're not saying the two things are related, but it's all falling together rather coincidentally! CEO leaves to work for a competitor with a heated history, and workplace chaos ensues during a transition in leadership.

A spy inside the meeting revealed workers were crying and very upset by the layoffs - and sales/marketing departments were hit hardest.

| Filed under: Business BlitzFoodFast FoodGIFs

McDonald's

For almost 75 years McDonald's has been one of the most recognizable names in fast food.

But, just being the No. 1 restaurant in the world doesn't necessarily bring you brand loyalty.

Do you remember two years ago when the burger chain was accused of using that pink slime in its burgers and chicken nuggets?
