The 2013 People’s Choice Awards Results

The people have spoken. The 2013 People’s Choice Awards were held yesterday at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, CA and the results don’t seem to surprise many. Katy Perry walked away with four awards, including Favorite Female Artist as well as Music Video, Favorite Pop Artist, and Favorite Fan Following – referring of course to the KatyCats.

Other notable award recipients include One Direction who was awarded Favorite Album and Favorite Song, Jason Mraz who was awarded Favorite Male Artist, and Taylor Swift who was awarded Favorite Country Artist.

Performances throughout the night featured Jason Aldean who belted “My Kind of Party” and R&B favorite Alicia Keys, who sang “Girl on Fire,” as well as “New Day.” Christina Aguilera also performed her ballad “Blank Page” and did so in style, dressed in white and surrounded by candlelight. Perhaps the most entertaining performance of the show was The Wanted‘s acceptance speech, wherein the members broke into an a cappella of “Afternoon Delight.”

All the winners are can be viewed after the jump.

Taylor Swift Releases “I Knew You Were Trouble” Video

Country superstar Taylor Swift is crossing even further into the world of pop music with her latest single, “I Knew You Were Trouble.” The song, which again finds Swift talking about failed romances in her still young life, has been tearing up the pop charts this month and will likely only succeed more in the coming weeks. The clip is cinematic, but far from her best work in my opinion. You can view the video and decide for yourself, below:

Associated Press Names Adele Entertainer Of The Year

With all those Grammys she won in early 2012, it comes as no surprise that powerhouse soul/pop singer Adele has been dubbed Entertainer Of The Year by Associated Press. Not just singer of the year, or musician, but entertainer. That means she even beat out that guy down the street with the flaming hula hoop and the unicycle! And let me tell you, that guy is one hell of an entertainer. AP readers and staff rated her far above other major entertainers and celebrities such as Taylor Swift, E.L. James (author of Fifty Shades of Grey), PSY, and the entire Twilight cast. Now that’s some high praise.

While she did not release a new album or do a world tour this year, Adele’s singles from 2011 still remain among the most highly played tracks on radio, television, in movies, and more. We seemingly can’t get enough Adele. Her most recent accomplishment, apart from delivering a baby, of course, is the single “Skyfall,” written to be the title theme of the new James Bond film. According to Billboard, “The song recently received a Golden Globe nomination. No Bond theme has ever won the best original song Oscar, but given Adele’s awards success thus far, it wouldn’t be a stretch to think she has a chance of changing that.” Regardless of whether she wins or not, Adele has still achieved more in one year than most entertainers do in their lifetime.

Taylor Swift Releases ‘I Knew You Were Trouble” Music Video

There’s been a lot of hype around the release of Taylor Swift’s latest music video, “I Knew You Were Trouble.” After MTV’s 30-second teaser Thursday morning, we finally got a peak at the video during Thursday night’s premiere.

Tattered clothes, messy hair, parties, and escapades all make an appearance in this video, which although not unique to the music scene itself, is a first for Swift.

“I had just gone through an experience that made me write this song about knowing the second you see someone like, ‘Oh, this is going to be interesting. It’s going to be dangerous, but look at me going in there anyway,” Swift told MTV News’ Sway Calloway.

Featuring Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark star Reeve Carney as Swift’s love interest, the video is a fast-paced look into the world of troubled love.

Although the spoken word intro airs on the side of dramatic, seeing Swift outside of her element is a refreshing change. Check out the video for yourself right here and let us know your thoughts on Swift’s latest approach.

Taylor Swift “I Knew You Were Trouble” Music Video Teaser

Just the other day, we promised you a Taylor Swift video that would catch the pop country sweetheart out of her element and exploring new terrain. Wednesday night, as part of their Big & Best of 2012 live stream, MTV aired a short clip of Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” music video.

The video is short, and in truth most of the 30-second clip is MTV advertising the music video premiere. However brief, the clip shows a confused Swift lying in the dirt, hair tousled and clothes ripped, while flashbacks of a party the night before flood the screen.

We had been told this video would document the more poisonous side of relationships and by the looks of it, Swift wasn’t kidding.

“We knew we wanted it to be [about] some sort of corruption — good girl is living her life, going on about her life … and all of a sudden she runs into this force. This guy is just like a force,” Swift said. “She’ll do anything to fit into his world, including change about herself.”

Check out the video right here and catch the premiere Dec. 13 at 4:40pm ET on MTV.

Taylor Swift To Premiere “I Knew You Were Trouble” Thursday

When you’re turning 23 and on top of the world, what better way is there to celebrate than by releasing your 23rd music video? For Taylor Swift, Thursday will not only mark a new age, but a brand new music video for “I Knew You Were Trouble.”

Directed by Anthony Mandler (Rihanna, fun., Lana Del Rey), and featuring Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark star, Reeve Carney as Swift’s troubled love interest, the video is a different approach for Swift, departing from her typical videos and by the looks of it giving way to a little more edge.

“As soon as I started writing this song, I knew it was different from anything else on the record, so I knew I wanted the video to be different from anything we’d done ever done,” Swift told MTV. “I wanted to tell the story of a girl who falls into a world that’s too fast for her, and suffers the consequences.”

The video will air on MTV at 4:40pm ET, Thursday, Dec. 13, 2012. Can’t wait? Check out some behind the scenes photos from the shoot over at MTV.com.
