Justin Bieber & Meghan Trainor Are Performing At The 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards — Check Out The Full List Of Nominees Here!
We heart the iHeartRadio Music Awards!
Unlike traditional ceremonies that honor music's best artists for their work, this show is all about "fan-fueled" entertainment.
Sure, the show has standard categories like Song of the Year and Artist of the Year, but fans can also vote for select categories socially — like Best Fan Army and Most Meme-able Moment! How fun!
If that doesn't sell you, the first scheduled performers for the third annual award show were announced on Tuesday, and they are none other Justin Bieber and Meghan Trainor — who are both nominated, along with Taylor Swift, Adele, Sam Smith, and The Weeknd, to name a few!
Check out the full list of nominees and find out who wins when the iHeartRadio Music Awards air April 3 on TBS, TNT, and truTV (below)!!!
One Direction Are 2015's Highest-Paid Celebrities Under 30 — See How Much They Raked In AND Who Else Made The Top 10!
That's a lot of dough!
Young entertainers make a lot of money these days thanks to successful movies, world tours, and top selling albums.
Forbes just released their list for highest-paid entertainers under 30 and while you may think that a movie star like Jennifer Lawrence tops the list, the honor actually goes to One Direction. In fact, almost all the celebs on the list are musicians!
With a WILDLY successful world tour underway and a new hit album, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne – and we suppose to a lesser degree Zayn Malik — made a staggering $130M this year.
While it's a bit different because there are multiple boys in the group, it's still incredibly impressive seeing as how all of them are younger than 24!
We like the sound of this!
There may still be over two months until the 58th Annual Grammy Awards, but at least we now know who is in contention to win on music's biggest night.

Skrillex Unleashed A Music Video For His Remix Of GTA's Red Lips — And It's Absolutely Terrifying! Watch!
Skrillex dropped his manic remix of GTA's Red Lips, complete with a music video — and the result is something straight out of your nightmares!
The vid follows Anya Taylor Joy, star of the anticipated horror film The Witch, who tries to evade creepy contorting captors that look like they belong in the American Horror Story opening credits! LOLz!
Reuniting with director Grant Singer, Skrillex said that the look and feel of the video was inspired by movies like The Cell and The Neverending Story.
Well, if the object was to send the viewer into a hellish nightmare — mission accomplished, Skrillex!
Ch-ch-check out the eerie vid (below)!
Skrillex & Fellow EDM DJ Deadmau5 Continue Their Ridiculous Feud — Check Out The Unintentionally Hilarious War Of Words HERE!
And to think this whole mess started over Justin Bieber.
Back in August, EDM DJ Deadmau5 SLAMMED Justin for comments he made about the prices of DJs and how "expensive" it is for someone to lend their "sounds".
Apparently, the artist was furious that Biebs would insinuate that he paid an insane amount of money for Skrillex to collaborate on Where Are You Now, when in reality he had a $1.4million production budget to work with.
Not to mention, he also insinuated that it didn't take much talent or money for Skrill to lend his services to the 21-year-old.
For some reason, Skrillex decided to lash out at his former friend and tour buddy MONTHS after the original attack in a series of very bitter tweets. Check out the convo (below)!
