It's a sad, sad day in music.
Singer Joe Cocker has died at the age of 70.
The raspy voiced rocker was best known for his cover of the Beatles' With A Little Help From My Friends. The cover was known to many as the theme song to The Wonder Years.

Cocker also sang the hits You Are So Beautiful and Up Where We Belong.
His agent, Barrie Marshall, confirmed the sad news, calling Joe "simply unique" and saying "it will be impossible to fill the space he leaves in our hearts."
Sony Music released a statement saying confirming that Cocker had died after a "hard fought battle with small cell lung cancer".
Our condolences go out to his families and fans.
Listen to him sing those lyrics, "What would you do if I sang out of tune" here:

Okay, so it's Jingle Ball and not the Oscars, and people can totally show up in sweats.
Which is what Kiesza did on Sunday night at Y100's Jingle Ball in Sunrise, Florida!
Her sweats featured an image of Marilyn Monroe with band-aids over her mouth on the left thigh! The Canadian singer also had a rubber ducky necklace on.

Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Iggy Azalea were all one their A-game at Y100's Jingle Ball in Miami on Sunday night!
For one, Jessie hit the red carpet in a blue crop top with a major keyhole and the matching flared trousers to really standout! And she even had the sassy pose to match!

Meanwhile, Ariana flashed some skin as she took the stage dressed in a fitted black bodysuit and knee-high boots. Though she really got into the spirit of the holidays by accessorizing her sexy ensem with a snowflake headband and fuzzy bracelets!!
So with all the skin on display on Sunday, we were a little surprised to see the Fancy songstress in a simple maroon sweater and leather leggings, but we can't deny she looked amazing!!
Keep doing you, gurlies!

Justin Timberlake recently had a concert on Friday night at the Nashville Bridgestone Arena and was in the middle of a classic tune called Friends in Low Places when he stopped the show and said to the audience:
"Hold on, now something don't feel right, something don't feel right, Nashville. I mean if you're going to do this…Garth?"
That is when the crowd erupted into a frenzy as Garth Brooks stepped out on stage and joined Justin an amazing duo performance of Garth's own classic song!
And both performers were SO happy to get a song in with each other.
Here's what Garth wrote on Instagram

This is quite a different result from her last album's sales!
My how times have changed!
Nicki Minaj recently dropped her latest album The Pinkprint on December 12th and while her third album is looking at a top five debut on the Billboard 200 chart and may sell about 150,000 by the end of the week ending Dec. 21st, the sales have been disappointing compared to her last album!
Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded as you may remember sold 253,000 copies its debut week in 2012 and finished numero uno that debut week on the US Billboard 200 chart.
