With another new year upon us, it's time to take votes for the best album of 2012. From Taylor Swift's 'Red' to Frank Ocean's 'channel ORANGE,' 2012 was stacked with exceptional new pop albums, but which one has been your favorite?
While some of the artists nominated in our Best New Artist category have been around for a few years, they made their big breaks into the mainstream pop scene in 2012. Sharp-tongued rapper Azealia Banks, spunky British songstress Cher Lloyd, silky smooth crooner Frank Ocean and Jay-Z protégé Rita Ora are some of the entertainers in the running for the 2012 PopCrush Music Award for Best New Artist, with a few other contenders as well.
The Jonas Brothers are playing select shows together once again and treating their fans to covers of hit songs by other artists. In recent concerts in Los Angeles, the trio put their own spin on songs by Bruno Mars, Coldplay and Frank Ocean.
Frank Ocean certainly had an eventful 2012. Just before he released his critically-acclaimed album 'channel ORANGE,' he outed himself in an open letter about loving another man. In GQ's Men of the Year issue he talks candidly about revealing his bisexuality to the world.
Is Frank Ocean boo'd up with a handsome model? The gossip blogs are in a frenzy with reports that the singer's new lover/boyfriend/BFF is model Willy Cartier. The rumors started when Ocean recently shared photos on Instagram of two hanging out in Los Angeles together.
In Frank Ocean's recently posted open letter, he writes of penning a song for someone because they paid for his flight and hotel. So who could've been this mysterious "someone?" It looks as if it could have been Alicia Keys.
What do you get when you add Jay-Z, Pharrell Williams and Frank Ocean in the studio? We hope an awesome collaborative song. Last night (Oct. 8 ), Skateboard P tweeted out a picture of himself with Hov and Ocean hanging out in the lab.
Frank Ocean's notoriety has now reached overseas in France as the singer-songwriter graces the cover of the latest issue of French magazine Snatch. Despite the magazine's dubious title, the publication features interviews with celebrities and music artists.
