no title

He gave her a run for her money… and didn't even come close!

It's no secret that Taylor Swift is easily the most famous musician on the planet, but we're happy to see that she also has the business acumen to back up that fame.

The 26-year-old has already topped two of Forbes' End of the Year lists so far in 2016 — highest paid female in music and highest paid celeb under 30 — but she can officially add another superlative to her résumé: Highest paid musician!!!

We guess $170 MILLION in a single year was just too much for her peers to compete with!

However, TayTay's not the only one making the big bucks…

In fact, Forbes' countdown out Wednesday includes 30 of the biggest acts in the industry — it's just too bad Justin Bieber's $56 million only put him at No. 13!!

Ch-ch-check out all 30 of Forbes' Highest Paid Musicians of 2016 list (below)!!!

It looks like Donald Trump will have to find someone else to sing "Hold me closer, Tiny Hands, Sir"!

On Wednesday, it was widely reported that Elton John would be playing the President-elect's inauguration after one of Trump's team made the announcement — leaving many scratching their heads.

Anthony Scaramucci, a member of Trump's transition team executive committee, told the BBC the Rocket Man singer would be performing for the upcoming inauguration to show "our commitment to gay rights."

This obviously came as a shock, since the glam rock icon has been a huge Hillary Clinton supporter throughout the presidential race.

But as it turns out, Trump's team was spewing out total bull! A rep for the singer denied the announcement, telling the New York Post:

The trick is, when it's slowed down to match the four minutes of the song, it somehow fits PERFECTLY — not to mention looking downright magical!

Of course, this isn't their first vid filmed in one take — and other artists like Taylor Swift, Elton John, and Miley Cyrus have given it a shot as well…

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteElton JohnMiley CyrusThe VoiceGIFs

no title

On Tuesday night's episode of The Voice, the hit singing competition show had to say goodbye to another contestant and Miley Cyrus was NOT happy about it!

After the votes were counted, Sundance Head, Wé McDonald, Ali Caldwell, Billy Gilman, Austin Allsup, Brendan Fletcher, Christian Cuevas, Courtney Harrell, and Josh Gallagher all landed in the top nine which meant they were safe!

The bad news is a couple of Miley's singers, Darby Walker and Aaron Gibson, were the bottom two and one had to go!

After each artist performed their instant save me song, Cyrus had a TOUGH choice, but ultimately decided to keep Gibson and send Walker home!

Seeing as how today is the Wrecking Ball singer's birthday, it sure would have been a nice early bday present to NOT cut one of her team as she joked:

"Thanks America, greatest birthday eve ever! Putting my team in the bottom two. Wack."

LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out the incredible performances (below), and let us know who you think will come away as the season 11 champ!

Kanye West Will Boycott The Grammys Unless They Bend The Rules For Frank Ocean Like They Did For Lady GaGa!

Kanye West would do anything for his Real Friends… and that includes skipping out on the biggest award show in music!

The rapper has made no secret of his support of Frank Ocean, and is, like most, a huge fan of his new album.

But after learning neither of Ocean's 2016 albums, Blonde nor Endless, will be eligible for consideration for the year's Grammy awards, Yeezy is pissed!

And since Mr. West knows all too well that the Grammys have a history of bending the rules for other artists, he won't bother showing up to the ceremony if his friend and collaborator doesn't get the same treatment.

At the Oakland stop on his Saint Pablo tour, Ye addressed the crowd on the inner workings of the Recording Academy, and how they allegedly made exceptions for their eligibility rules — like Lady GaGa's 2010 Grammy performance.

Entering one of his now-expected stage rants, Kim Kardashian West's husband said:

Even though Lip Sync Battle's live episode helped tide us over until its season 3 premiere, we couldn't be more thrilled the silly musical show is coming back on Wednesday — and bringing Sir Ben Kingsley too!

The British thespian is appearing on the LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen-hosted show, where he'll face off against Star Trek star John Cho this week.

And Ben appears to be having a BLAST while getting his Elton John on!

We don't know what John will be up to, though it's probably a bit country as he's in cowboy gear, but Kingsley decided to perform Elton's classic hit Rocket Man with QUITE the costume — and we couldn't love it more!

Ch-ch-check out Sir Ben's AH-Mazing Sir Elton performance (below) and let us know if you think Cho can top Rocket Man!

Disney Is Remaking The Lion King! See The LONG List Of Cartoon Classics Lined Up For Live Action Reboots HERE!

| Filed under: Film FlickersDisneyElton John

Disney is diving back into its vault for yet ANOTHER live action reboot!

Though this time it'll only kinda be live action — as it's being helmed by director Jon Favreau, who already killed it with believable CG animals in 2015's The Jungle Book.

According to the announcement, the Lion King remake "will include songs from the animated film." Not surprising at all, given the Elton John and Tim Rice-penned songs won Oscars and Grammys and even Tony Awards!

No release date has been set, but word is the film has been fast-tracked, so if you've ever wondered what a REAL lion would look like singing I Just Can't Wait To Be King, you won't have to wait TOO long.

And of course, you'll have plenty of other classic reboots to tide you over…
