Taylor Swift Wins NSAI’s Songwriter-Artist Of The Decade Award
At a ceremony on Tuesday night (September 20), Taylor Swift received the Songwriter-Artist of the Decade Award from the Nashville Songwriters Association International.
The 32-year-old singer accepted the award at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, delivering a 13-minute speech. Taylor has received NSAI’s Songwriter of the Year seven times from 2007 to 2015.
“I’m up here receiving this beautiful award for a decade of work, and I can’t possibly explain how nice that feels,” said Taylor.
“Because the way I see it, this is an award that celebrates a culmination of moments. Challenges. Gauntlets laid down. Albums I’m proud of. Triumphs. Strokes of luck or misfortune. Loud, embarrassing errors and the subsequent recovery from those mistakes, and the lessons learned from all of it.”

Kelly Clarkson Receives a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
On Monday (September 19), Kelly Clarkson was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and a large group of her friends and family were present.
Clarkson was accompanied by her children, 8-year-old daughter River Rose and 6-year-old son Remington, who celebrated their mother’s twenty years in the entertainment business.
Clarkson attended the ceremony with her mother, Jeanne, and was praised by the former “American Idol” judges, Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson.
After the ceremony, Clarkson took to Instagram to show off her star, which is located between stars for Deadpool and Harry Potter, played by Ryan Reynolds and Daniel Radcliffe, respectively. “I dare anyone top that,” Kelly joked.
As she embarks on her third album, Dua Lipa is feeling “liberated” like never before.
The “Potion” vocalist says she felt more “in control” of a creative endeavor.
In response to the question of what freedom means to her, she told Vogue Australia:“Freedom, especially as a woman, means to be able to take things into your own hands, to have control over the things that you believe in…to really have a voice.”
The 27-year-old “Levitating” singer claims that her follow-up to 2020’s “Future Nostalgia” is her most mature song to date. She revealed that she had a “vision” for the album as well as a name.
Who do you hope Dua Lipa collaborates with on the new album? How old were you when you felt you had a voice?
The “Hero” hitmaker has disclosed that she has been busy writing a ton of new music, including songs for what appears to be either a “scripted series or documentary.”
She told ‘Rolling Stone Music Now’: “It’s about 3-4 things. One is a nearly-finished project that needed background vocal changes. One is new tunes for a series or documentary, and then there’s a themed album.”
“People have asked me to do this for years,” said Mariah. “But it’s not traditional. I’m excited about the unfinished project. I’m working with fresh and established musicians on that record.”
Mariah recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of her Butterfly album.
Kelly Clarkson, the first winner of “American Idol,” will get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday. Since then, she has sold more than 25 million albums and 40 million singles and won three Grammys.
Simon Cowell and Jason Halbert, Clarkson’s music director since 2003, will speak at the 11:30 a.m. event in front of the Ovation Hollywood shopping complex at Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue, the site of the Dolby Theatre, where she won “American Idol.”
The ceremony takes place the same day as Clarkson’s first show of the fourth season of “The Kelly Clarkson Show” airs.
The ceremony will be streamed on the Walk of Fame’s website, www.walkoffame.com.
