Hi HerDaily Readers! For this weeks #PopChat I am switching things up a bit, and giving you a written rundown of everything entertainment you missed this week.
Go ahead, scroll on down to stay in the loop.
1. The Grammy’s
The 2016 Grammy Awards took place in Los Angeles on Monday. Here are four big moments you need to know about. One, Kendrick Lamar won a Grammy for Best Rap Album and brought down the house with a killer performance that blew other celebs away.
@kendricklamar THAT WAS SO POWERFUL.

Two, while gracefully accepting her award for Album of the Year for 1989, Taylor Swift also seized the moment to give Kanye West a dose of his own medicine. This comes after Kanye put some vulgar lyrics about Taylor in his new song, “Famous.” Take a look at her speech below.
Three, Adele powered through her performance amidst some serious audio and pitch issues. Although the singer still shined like a true professional, it caused social media to have a slight heart attack followed by positive feedback.

Four, Lady Gaga did David Bowie proud with an amazing tribute to his music, creativity, and artistry. Truthfully, she slayed.
2. Sports Illustrated Swimsuit makes history
For the first time ever, Sports Illustrated has crowned three separate cover models for its 2016 Swimsuit issue. Ronda Rousey, Hailey Clauson, and Ashley Graham. Here is what the magazine had to say about the three different covers, “The three covers of Hailey, Ronda, and Ashley celebrate the new SI Swimsuit. All three women are beautiful, sexy, and strong. Beauty is not cookie cutter.” Personally, I think it is refreshing to have three realistic and beautiful body types.
3. Julianne Hough officially puts her DWTS judge paddle to rest
Call up your fellow Dancing With the Stars fan friend for a shoulder to cry on, because Julianne Hough will not be returning to judge Season 22.
After two years on the judge’s table, Julianne will be stepping out, as head judge Len Goodman returns. Julianne filled Len’s seat for season 21 because he had prior commitments, and the two shared the judge’s table for season 20. However, there is a silver lining. Hough shared some hopeful news with People Magazine, “I promise it’s not the last you’ll see of me in the ballroom,” she said. Thank goodness!
4. Kanye West claims he’s in major debt with one tweet
Kanye West has been the epitome of tweeting TMI (wayyy too much information). Earlier in the week, Kanye tweeted the following, “I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt… Please pray we overcome… This is my true heart…” This is just professionally of course, because personally he is still rich.
Yes I am personally rich and I can buy furs and houses for my family

However, since he needs more funds to bring more ideas to the world, one fan named Jeremy Piatt set up a Go Fund Me Account for the artist. Yes, the site used for raising money for homeless animals and school fundraisers, is now being used to gain funds for a famous rapper and fashion designer…The page has already raised more than $5 thousand dollars. Kanye and his fans are always raising the crazy bar.
5. Big Ang from Mob Wives dies
VH1 Mob Wives reality star, Angela Raiola, died Thursday at the age of 55, of brain and lung cancer.
The following statement was posted to her Twitter account.

Thoughts and prayers go out to her family and fellow Mob Wives cast mates.
