Everybody has a calling in life but some people take longer than others to find their true purpose. At least, that’s what Oprah Winfrey preaches and there are several singers who could benefit from that advice. Specifically, the select few with the potential to be much more successful as songwriters instead of recording artists.
Ke$ha is going to keep hanging on to every shred of relevance she has left and you’re going to like it, damn it. Last evening, the glitter-loving singer made a guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote her MTV documentary, Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life, and made no mention of her horrendous album sales.
There was once a time when Ke$ha was among the biggest names in Pop music. She had a platinum album, monster #1 hits and sold out shows. Flash forward three years and the singer has already been kicked to the curb as an industry has been. Just watch the crowd response at the 2013 Kids’ [...]

Last week, early sales predictions indicated that Bruno Mars’ new album, ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’, would have entered the US charts with 140-150K copies sold. However, as a result of his massive promotional campaign, the singer has exceeded all expectations with an even more impressive debut.
When an artist has a catalogue of music as strong as that of Mariah Carey then anything is possible. In fact, although her current releases have struggled to dent the US charts, the mega diva’s inescapable Holiday anthem, ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’, has returned to the Billboard Hot 100 and even reached [...]
