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)!!!
Diplo is by far above and beyond most other producers and writers in the music business!!!
He continues to kill the game by making songs that sound so different from what everyone else is doing, even from what he's also doing in his many different incarnations!
His band, Major Lazer, have just dropped a new single and SUPER SEXY video with him looking daddy af! Be Together features vocals from Wild Belle and it's hard to describe what it sounds like other than.. A HIT!!!!
Check it out above!

The man is a double threat, and now he's opening for a legend!
After acting in popular series like Luther and Beasts Of No Nation, Idris Elba is pursuing his music career as a DJ, and he just got a BIG gig with pop's biggest superstar ever!!
It was announced on Monday that Elba would open — as a DJ — for Madonna on her Rebel Heart Tour stop in Berlin, Germany this evening!!

If Elba seems like an off-the-wall choice, the queen of pop has beenrunning through various opening acts on this tour.
She's enjoyed opening performance from DJs including Diplo and Lunice, and she's even had comedian Amy Schumer warm up the crowd for her at an earlier concert!
Hope Idris is up to the task — opening for a pop legend is going to be more difficult than any mess he may find himself in should he become James Bond! LOLz!!

How does Diplo find time to do it all????
The super in-demand producer/artist has just dropped a new collaboration with Sleepy Tom that is pure sonic sex!!!
They have reimagined the iconic early 90s R&B anthem Don't Walk Away into a club-stomper!!!
So freaking good!!!
Check it out above!

Say it ain't so, Justin Bieber!
The pop star has been in the middle of controversy lately after allegations swirled that he's back to his bad boy self after some poor decisions with alcohol and partying.

But as it turns out, there may be more to the story than what everybody first assumed!
Riff Raff and Diplo were apparently hanging out with the Biebs in Hollywood last week, and they admitted
Tinashe sure knows how to play the game!
The songstress has been giving fans a taste of her upcoming album Joyride. Just earlier this month, she dropped her new single Party Favors!
And the All Hands on Deck singer is keeping the party going with her Chris Brown assisted follow-up track Player!

The Diplo-produced track is more upbeat, as Tinashe previously revealed she wanted to keep her new album uptempo — which we are totally LOVING so far!
Take a listen to the AH-mazing track (above)! AND, in case you were curious what it would sound like WITHOUT Chris Brown, you can hear the Breezy-free version (below)!
