"I will never smile this hard again"

Bernie Sanders has surprised Ariana Grande by turning up to watch one of her concerts.

Ahead of a Democratic debate that Sanders was attending in Atlanta yesterday (November 20), the Senator attended Grande’s concert at the State Farm Arena.

Later, Grande shared some images capturing the moment on Twitter, along with a note showing her support for the 78-year-old politician.

“MY GUY,” Grande wrote, adding: “Thank you Senator Sanders for coming to my show, making my whole night and for all that you stand for!” Grande revealed in the post that over 20K young people had already registered to vote at her shows.

She continued: “also I will never smile this hard again promise.” You can see the post below:

Yesterday, Grande was revealed as one of this year’s leading Grammy Award nominees, with five nominations. Other artists leading the nominations included Lizzo, Lil Nas X and Billie Eilish. 

There were multiple nominations too for Taylor Swift and Lana Del Rey in an awards list dominated by women in the pop categories.

Other nods went to Thom Yorke, Bon Iver, James Blake, The Chemical Brothers and Vampire Weekend and in the Rock Album category, The Cranberries have received a nomination for their final album, ‘In The End’, which was completed following the death of lead singer Dolores O’Riordan in 2018.

Recognising her nominations, Grande wrote on Twitter yesterday: “thank u for acknowledging this music my beautiful best friends and i created in just a few weeks together.

“the acknowledgement is truly enough on its own for me and my heart. pls allow me to bring all of my friends who made this w me so they can make sure my heart is beating.”

Taylor Swift to receive Billboard's first-ever Woman of the Decade award

Taylor Swift to receive Billboard's first-ever Woman of the Decade award

Taylor Swift is to be honoured with Billboard's first-ever Woman of the Decade award later this year.

The singer will be recognised as "one of the most accomplished musical artists of all time over the course of the 2010s" at this year's Billboard's Women in Music event, taking place on 12 December at the Hollywood Palladium.

The announcement comes hours after the star was nominated for three Grammy Awards for her latest album Lover, and rounds off a hugely successful decade for the star.

Her five albums released between 2010 and 2019 - Speak Now (2010), Red (2012), 1989 (2014), Reputation (2017) and Lover (2019) - were all number one on the Billboard 200 chart.

She's also racked up three chart-topping singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, plus three worldwide stadium tours and two Billboard Woman of the Year awards, among several other accolades.

Last week, Taylor hit headlines when she claimed music moguls Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta, her former record label boss who sold Taylor's masters to the executive, blocked her from performing her old hits on TV, including at the American Music Awards, where she is to receive the Artist of the Decade honour.

The Big Machine Label Group bosses denied the allegations and later publicly gave permission for the Shake It Off star to use the tracks.

Coldplay won't tour until concerts are 'actively beneficial' for the environment

Coldplay won't tour until concerts are 'actively beneficial' for the environment

Coldplay are taking a hiatus from touring while they figure out how their concerts can be "actively beneficial" for the environment.

The British band, fronted by Chris Martin, last toured in support of their record A Head Full of Dreams in 2016 and 2017 and staged 122 shows across four continents as part of the trek.

But they won't be embarking on a similar tour for their new album Everyday Life, due for release on Friday, with Martin telling BBC News that they are "taking time over the next year or two, to work out how our tour can not only be sustainable (but) how can it be actively beneficial."

"Our next tour will be the best possible version of a tour like that environmentally," he explained. "We would be disappointed if it's not carbon neutral.

"The hardest thing is the flying side of things. But, for example, our dream is to have a show with no single use plastic, to have it largely solar powered... We've done a lot of big tours at this point. How do we turn it around so it's no so much taking as giving?"

Explaining that the group want their future tours to "have a positive impact", Martin added: "All of us have to work out the best way of doing our job."

Coldplay will next perform in the Jordanian capital of Amman on Friday for two shows that will be streamed live on YouTube. They will also take to the stage at London's Natural History Museum on 25 November for a one-off concert for fans - the proceeds from which will be donated to an environmental charity.

Ariana Grande endorses U.S. presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders

Ariana Grande endorses U.S. presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders

Ariana Grande has thrown her support behind U.S. presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders.

The Thank U, Next star shared two pictures of herself giving the senator a warm hug backstage at her concert on her Twitter page on Wednesday, writing in the caption alongside the snaps: "MY GUY. thank you Senator Sanders for coming to my show, making my whole night and for all that you stand for ! @headcountorg and i are doing our best to make you proud. we've already registered 20k+ young voters at my shows alone. also i will never smile this hard again promise."

Democrat candidate Sanders later shared the images himself and tweeted: "I want to thank @ArianaGrande for not only being a wonderful entertainer, but also for being such an outstanding advocate for social justice. We must all be prepared - like Ariana has shown - to fight for everyone who is struggling. It was great to meet her in Atlanta last night."

Ariana has never been shy about sharing her political views and has sparked backlash in the past for doing so. But in a previous interview with Elle magazine, the 26-year-old admitted she was stunned by those celebrities who choose to keep their political inclinations private, adding: "There's a lot of noise when you say anything about anything. But if I'm not going to say it, what's the f**king point of being here? Not everyone is going to agree with you, but that doesn't mean I'm just going to shut up and sing my songs. I'm also going to be a human being who cares about other human beings; to be an ally and use my privilege to help educate people."
