Blake Shelton Tops CMA Awards
Blake Shelton was the top winner at the 46th Annual CMA Awards on Nov. 1 in Nashville, taking home three awards for Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year for "Over You" with Miranda Lambert. Lambert and Little Big Town followed with two wins each, including Female Vocalist of the Year and Vocal Group of the Year, respectively. Additional artists garnering awards included Eric Church, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, and Thompson Square, among others. In related awards news, indie pop quartet Alt-J won the UK's 2012 Barclaycard Mercury Prize for their album An Awesome Wave. A total of 12 artists, including Ben Howard, the Maccabees and Plan B, were nominated for the award, which honors the best British or Irish album of the year and provides a cash award of approximately $32,000.
The Perry, Pattinson, Stewart Saga
One of Hollywood's most recent hot-and-cold celebrity couples, actors Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, were spotted together this week promoting The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, the final installment of the Twilight series. The two have been spending some time out of the twilight after reports surfaced that Stewart was getting steamy with Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. A troubled love expert herself, Katy Perry has put her two cents on the matter. The California gurl reportedly gave Stewart a "severe talking to," warning her that if she cheats again "she'll be an outcast." It sounds like there's a part of Perry we haven't seen yet, and we're not sure if we want to.
