The huge sum, most of which was from her world tour, propelled Beyonce, 33, from fourth place last year and put her firmly ahead of pop star Taylor Swift, 24, with $64 million, who jumped up one spot from last year to No. 2. "Beyonce played 95 shows during our scoring period, bringing in an average of $2.4 million per city," said Forbes, citing data from the Pollstar trade magazine. The R&B singer's self-titled album released last December and endorsement deals pushed her earnings up further assuring her the top spot.

Ask Matt: Black-ish, The Middle, Anarchy Music, The Voice, The Knick, and More

Yahoo! Music News - Mon, 11/03/2014 - 22:27

 Fred Norris/FoxSend questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter! Question: OMG! The Halloween episode of Black-ish was the funniest yet! Between all the pranks at home and his office (Josh getting hit was the best — twice!), the daughter deciding not to prank anymore, and the kids not going trick-or-treating because they didn't want to get diabetes, I couldn't decide what was funnier; well, maybe Josh getting hit twice in the nose was the best! However, I think the best thing of the whole episode was the ending when they came out dressed like the Jackson 5; brought back so many awesome childhood memories for me! This is the best sitcom of the 2014 season! I hope they renew it as I look forward to watching it every week! — Amy, Galloway, OH Read More > Other Links From TVGuide.com Clive Owen Laurence Fishburne John Ridley Chris Carmack Charlie McDermott Eden Sher Ryan Murphy Taylor Swift Sons of Anarchy The Middle Hell on Wheels Nashville Longmire Sleepy Hollow Constantine American Crime blackish The Knick Matt Ryan The Voice American Crime Story: The People v.

It Looks Like Midtown's Troubled Music City Tippler Will Close This Weekend

Yahoo! Music News - Wed, 10/29/2014 - 05:09

It Looks Like Midtown's Troubled Music City Tippler Will Close This WeekendAfter a little over a year in business, it looks like Music City Tippler, the Midtown restaurant and bar that has struggled for a large part of its short life, will shutter permanently this weekend. Back in August, local restaurant group Strategic Hospitality was hired on in what appeared to be a last ditch effort by the Tippler owners to save the project, but Eater has now received a tip from a trusted source saying that an 'empty the bar' party will be taking place this weekend, something typically done as a last hurrah. Additionally, a social media post from former Tippler general manager Daniel Cheney confirms this, stating that his sources tell him this Friday night will be the restaurant's last.
