Ariana Grande & Lady Gaga to perform at Frank Sinatra tribute by GRAMMYs

Ariana Grande has been announced to perform at a special concert alongside other prominent artists on December 6th at 9 PM EST.

Next month, just a few days shy of what would have been legendary crooner Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday, the likes of Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga will gather to pay tribute at Sinatra 100: an All-Star Grammy Concert,  according to PEOPLE. Carrie Underwood, Adam Levine, Celine Dion, John Legend and Alicia Keys are also slated to appear.

“I’ve been singing Frank Sinatra songs in my shows for many years,” Dion told the site. “His voice has been such an inspiration for me, and it will always be.”

“Nobody could juggle a drink, a conversation, and a perfect vocal as casually as Frank,” Levine added. “That’s why I love him.”

Sinatra, who was born in 1915, sold 150 million albums and won nine Grammys before his death in 1998, and was considered a pioneer of jazz and pop standards. “Let’s Fall in Love,” “The Way You Look Tonight” and “They Can’t Take That Away From Me” are some of his most memorable hits.

The concert will be taped on December 2nd at the Wynn Las Vegas’ Encore Theatre and air December 6th at 9 PM EST on CBS.

Last time Ariana performed at a GRAMMY concert, it was a tribute payed to the amazing Stevie Wonder.

Ariana Grande to be honored on Billboard Women of Music Awards

Ariana Grande and Idina Menzel will be two of the honorees at this year’sBillboard Women in Music Awards, joining Taylor Swift as recipients at the Dec. 12 event in New York City.

Grande will receive the 2014 Billboard Rising Star award and Menzel will accept the Breakthrough Artist of the Year award, a new honor at the awards event that’s now in its ninth year. Swift has been previously named the 2014 Billboard Woman of the Year.

Grande follows in the footsteps of previous Billboard Rising Star honorees that include Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and Janelle Monae, among others, marking exceptional success early in their careers and demonstrating remarkable potential to make lasting contributions to the music industry.

“To be recognized alongside some of the most influential women in the music business is such an incredible honor,” said Grande. “Receiving the ‘Rising Star’ award is truly amazing and I’m extremely grateful!”

In the past year, the 21-year-old singer has risen as a powerful pop force on Billboard’s charts. She landed her second Billboard 200 No. 1 album with My Everything in September — following last year’s debut Yours Truly — and has scored three top five hits on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Problem,” “Break Free” and “Bang Bang” with Jessie J and Minaj.

“In a watershed year for female recording talent, Ariana Grande has managed to make an indelible mark as a young artist,” said Janice Min, co-president and chief creative officer of Guggenheim Media’s Entertainment Group, which consists of Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter. “We’re so pleased to award Ariana our Rising Star accolade for 2014, and anxiously await what comes next.”

Drake Bell bashes Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber & Lady Gaga

Drake Bell recently sat down with BuzzFeed and the former ‘Drake & Josh’ star didn’t hold back when talking about fellow musicians Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, and Ariana Grande.

Starting to say about people who were discovered on YouTube possessed an easier way to fame, he refers to will and large Bieber: “I do not think many of these young people have to work very hard. They are found on YouTube and … boom! Ariana Grande was already a billionaire even before becoming an artist. You have to work to be able to appreciate what you have, and what job she ever had to make in your life?”

It’s shocking the way he speaks of Ariana when both started on Nickelodeon – he was in Drake & Josh and she is still in Sam & Cat.

Since Drake is not a fan of Justin – as he expressed in the past – it’s no surprise that he also attacked and Beliebers in general: “I can not support this, with many pop stars, there is this idea of ‘You’re in our club? Are You a Belieber, Directioner or are you? Oh, you are not part of our gang? So you’re not legal and you need to go into the hole and die explains Bell.

“I do not understand it. And what’s worse is artists like Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber will not run and say, ‘I love having you as my fans, but you should not act this way.’ They just eat it all, and I think it’s disgusting.” continued the singer of 27 years.

Justin, Ariana and Gaga are all big fans, but Drake says that when fans are irresponsible, the star should face them and tell them what is and is not right. “If I took my fans saying something inappropriate, one gay insult or any other offensive term, I instantly tweetaria directly to them and say, ‘That’s not how we do,’ “  explains Drake.

When talking about the importance of Ariana and Justin give fans what he believes to be visible, explains that he just tweet the same old things.  “Justin Bieber just tweet, ‘Yeah, Beliebers, get hard’ when they are attacking someone. Fans of Ariana Grande told Perez Hilton that he and his son have to die and have cancer, and it only fueled it. It is shameful” said in the interview.

“We have not signed up to be examples, but we are,” he explained. “Artists like Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga have more excitement on the popular mind than a politician. They could take a stand and say, ‘This is how we should treat people’, but do not. I just think this is a gross, thick and dreadful message “  he concluded.

UPDATE (April 3rd, 2014):

Drake Bell went to Twitter and stated that the actions taken by stars like Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga, he praised Ariana on his Twitter posting some old videos of Ariana.
