She defended remarks she made at the event, including the lines: "Yes, I'm angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House, but I know that this won't change anything. We cannot fall into despair." "I am not a violent person, I do not promote violence and it's important people hear and understand my speech in it's entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out…

Rachel Platten, One Direction Songwriter Upset at Use of Their Songs at Inaugural Ball

Rachel Platten and a songwriter for One Direction spoke out on Twitter after their songs were performed at Donald Trump's inaugural ball on Friday. One of the performers, The Piano Guys, performed a mash-up of "Amazing Grace" and Rachel's "Fight Song," despite the fact that "Fight Song" was used at many Hillary Clinton campaign rallies last year, and was also played at the Democratic National Convention. A clearly upset Rachel tweeted, "While I respect the office of the President and the peaceful transfer of power, I want to make clear that at no point did the Piano Guys ask for…

Billboard notes that in the entire history of the Grammy Awards, only five music artists have won Album of the Year more than once: U2, Taylor Swift, Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder.  Since Adele has already won Album of the…
