Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

The duo that consists of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis has a simple name, to describe their simple style: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. They became an unlikely pop sensation with their smash hit "Thrift Shop."

Macklemore (Ryan Flaggerty) suffered with substance abuse from 2005 to 2008, but cleaned himself up to work on music with DJ/producer Ryan Lewis. Since late 2008, the duo have been making mix tapes and EPs. Their first major record album was released late 2012, called The Heist which peaked at number one on the American charts.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have a unique sound that describes their unique story. They go from rags to riches while becoming indie/hip-hop group. Their sound is no less surprising, seen on tracks like "Same Love", "Otherside", and "Thrift Shop."

Kim K Doesn't Want Attention?

If history is any indication, Kim K's pregnancy should be a great way for her to generate more fame and more money. But, the Kardashian says she doesn't want fame. Not right now, anyways. Since she and Duchess Kate are both expecting in July, both have been scrutinized by the media world wide for their maternity fashion. But when asked her thoughts, Kim was perfectly content with letting Kate have all the glory if Kim can have privacy.

It's very unlike a Kardashian to want privacy, but no one wants their bloated face all over the internet either. Critics call her comments a publicity stunt, saying that by her not wanting attention, more media will go anyways. Paranoid media? Maybe. But no one can make a baby bump as fashionable as Kim can.

JT, Taylor Announce New Music

Shortly after Destiny's Child announced new music, Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake followed suit.

Post break-up with One Direction's Harry Styles, Taylor Swift tweeted that she was back in the studio. Of course, that can only mean one thing: another break-up song about Styles. It hasn't been confirmed, but if history is any indication, it's what everyone should expect.

Justin Timberlake's announcement was a shock. Many thought he retired after marrying Jessica Biel in late 2012. But after posting a message saying he "was ready" to get back in the studio, Timberlake shocked music fans everywhere by releasing a new single called "Suit and Tie"days after he said he wanted to start making music again.

JT's single has already topped the charts, and we've yet to see how Swift and Destiny's Child fare on the charts.

Destiny's Child Comeback

It's official, R&B girl group Destiny's Child is releasing new music. Beyonce, the most successful artist to come out of the trio will be performing at the Super Bowl XLVII, and it was announced that former members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams will be joining her onstage.

Destiny's Child will be releasing their first new record since 2004, which is a song titled "Nuclear." It will be featured on an album of best selling hits called Love Songs. It remains unclear whether Destiny's Child is back to stay, or just making a small splash at the Super Bowl, much like the Spice Girls did at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

New Artist

ENN is proud to introduce Acoustic Truth, a new duo.  Their very own Ryan Knott introduces the band below:

"As far as background goes, Sarah and I [Ryan] are two best friends from Chicago who began creating music together in the summer of 2011. After hitting it off as interns at Camp Star, a summer camp for children living with psychological disorders and learning disabilities, we kept in touch and routinely exchanged music.  Neither of us ever planned on doing music until the summer 2011 when we wrote our first song together, “A New Me”; it was then that we decided we wanted to bring back the heartfelt music that has been lost over the years. Our chemistry has allowed us to write a variety of songs.

Although we have a variety of unique sounding songs, we consider ourselves to be an acoustic/country pop, folk and blue-eyed-soul duo. We have been compared to popular bands and artists such as The Mama’s and Papa’s, Lady Antebellum, Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat. Overall, we pride ourselves as being songwriters that aspire to inspire people through our music.

We have a new album called "Time" releasing on Feb 10th. We were also invited to meet the producers of Americas Got Talent which takes place at the end of January."

Kate Middleton Turns 31

It's been a whirlwind year for Duchess Kate. Between a tour celebrating her marriage to Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and announcing her pregnancy, the mother-to-be still found time to spend time with her new family.

It's hard to believe that Kate has been in the spotlight with the prince since 2001, when she was only 19. Twelve years later, she turned 31, married to a prince with a baby on the way.

Jennifer Lawrence Calls Acting "Stupid"

In a recent interview with Vanity, Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence calls acting "stupid." However, she does make up for it by comparing her job to, in her opinion, a much more noteworthy career.

"Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid... Everybody’s like, 'How can you remain with a level head?' And I’m like, 'Why would I ever get cocky? I’m not saving anybody’s life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies. It’s stupid." Lawrence dishes.

But not to worry, she also revealed that she loves her job and takes her new fame very seriously. Lawrence vows to remain grounded and not let her  immense success change who she is.

Kanye West announced Kim K's pregnancy in a much more grandiose way. At a recent concert in late December, West gave a shout out to his girlfriend, pointing to her and calling her his "baby mama." Kardashian later confirmed the rumors on Twitter, followed by her sisters Khloe and Kourtney congratulating her. Perhaps the child's name will start with a "K"?
