‘Feeling’ Steady: Black Eyed Peas Match Decade Mark On Hot 100

by Silvio Pietroluongo, N.Y. | October 01, 2009 10:48 EDT

Mariah Carey (above) and Black Eyed Peas (top)

With its 14th week at the Hot 100 summit, “I Gotta Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas matches Mariah Carey‘s “We Belong Together” for longest No. 1 stay this decade. The Peas have now held firm at No. 1 for 26 straight weeks, with “Boom Boom Pow” preceding “Feeling” with a 12-week run, making them the second act in the 51-year history of the Hot 100 to remain at No. 1 for a half a calendar year or more. The other was Usher, who spent 28 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 in 2004 with four tracks.

On the wings of strong first-week download sales (110,000), Carrie Underwood‘s “Cowboy Casanova” makes the Hot 100’s biggest leap (96-11). The song opens at No. 8 on Hot Digital Songs, Underwood’s eighth top 10 on that list since it launched in February 25. That sum ties her with Beyonce for second most top 10s among females, trailing only Rihanna who’s reached the upper tier 12 times. “Casanova” previews Underwood’s third studio album, “Play On,” set to hit retail on Nov. 3.

Alicia Keys has the list’s Hot Shot Debut as “Doesn’t Mean Anything” opens at No. 61. In just its second week on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, the song surges 32-19 as the Greatest Gainer.

Also new to the Hot 100 are two more tracks from the FOX TV series “Glee.” Covers of Celine Dion‘s “Taking Chances” (No. 71) and Queen‘s 1977 classic “Somebody To Love” (No. 85) up that show’s chart take to five entries since its May debut. David Nail has another of the seven chart debuts as “Red Line” launches at No. 95. It’s his first Hot 100 appearance and it comes seven years after first reaching the Hot Country Songs chart. Meanwhile, Pink enters at No. 97 with “Funhouse,” the fourth Hot 100 single from her album of the same name. Her last album to place four Hot 100 singles was 2001’s “Missundaztood.”

The Hot 100’s Greatest Gainer/Airplay winner is Lady Gaga‘s “Paparazzi” which holds at No. 7. The top Digital Gainer is Jason DeRulo’s “Whatcha Say” which lifts 10-5, a new peak for the track. Elsewhere in the top 10, Jay Sean‘s “Down” returns to No. 2 with “Down,” Miley Cyrus rebounds 6-3 with “Party In The U.S.A.” and Jay-Z steps back with two tracks; “Run This Town” tumbles 2-4 while “Empire State of Mind” slips 5-10. Rounding out the upper tier, Taylor Swift holds at No. 1 on Hot 100 Airplay, but falls 4-6 on the main chart, Kings of Leon leap 9-8 with “Use Somebody” and Mariah Carey returns to top 10 territory with “Obsessed” (11-9).

Beyonce: The Billboard Q&A

Singer. Songwriter. Philanthropist. Entrepreneur. Actress. Producer. Beyoncé may be the hardest-working woman in showbiz.

Take the four days leading up to MTV’s recent Video Music Awards.

Beyoncé wraps a run-through of her Radio City Music Hall performance at midnight Thursday evening. Friday morning at 10 a.m., it’s déjà vu as she returns to rehearsal mode. A dressing room break is anything but: chats with MTV personnel about show logistics segue into an editing session for her next project — a DVD culled from a summer stand at the Wynn Las Vegas. Later that evening, Beyoncé makes a surprise appearance at husband Jay-Z’s Sept. 11 Madison Square Garden show. Then right after the VMAs, Beyoncé and her alter ego Sasha Fierce catch a flight to Australia to kick off the next leg of their I Am… world tour.

As she ticks off her jam-packed schedule, an unfrazzled Beyoncé dismisses her multitasking with a laugh: “It’s just one of those grind weeks. It will be less hectic when I’m in Australia.” A world tour is less hectic? As you exhale and ponder that irony, it becomes clear that this is someone who thrives on hard work and fierce determination. Before slipping back into her signature stilettos, Billboard’s 2009 Woman of the Year shares how she balances work and relaxation, feeds her philanthropic passions and envisions her future.

The average person can’t keep up your pace. How do you it?

I’m an all-or-nothing type of woman. Either I’m doing absolutely nothing and relaxing — reading a book, sitting by the ocean and not answering any questions — or else I’m hands-on and giving 100%, working really hard.

I was just on vacation for three weeks after touring for a couple of months. I have to schedule time to rest, rejuvenate and get inspired to work again. Now I’m definitely rested and thank God I had the rest — that’s the only way I would be able to get through a week like this. After three weeks without giving any answers or approvals and no performing, I came back like, “Yes! I’m ready to work!” [laughs]

How do you flip the switch from Beyoncé to Sasha Fierce on tour?

It’s a lot easier than it used to be since I’ve put so many hours into performing; I can make the transition from Beyoncé to Sasha Fierce really fast. I don’t have any crazy rituals beforehand. I get in maybe two-and-a-half to three hours before each show. I do my makeup on tour myself and get my hair done. Then we all come together, say a prayer and do a little stretch. I also do meet-and-greets during which I meet a lot of my fans. I usually meet children from the Make a Wish Foundation. I’ve basically given them an open invitation whenever anyone wants to come. That’s always a highlight of the day for me.

On my days off from the tour, I do a lot of sightseeing. I love to visit churches and museums all over the world. The architecture in America is amazing but in Europe, there’s so much history. I also started riding a bike on my days off with others like my assistant and stylist. It’s amazing how I’m able to ride around on a bike. People kind of see it’s me but since I’m on a bike, they think, “No, it’s not her.” And by the time they realize it’s me, I’m already gone. It’s great to do something normal every day. It keeps me grounded.

What do you do to maintain your tour stamina? I heard a rumor that you run on a treadmill in heels and sing.

[Laughs heartily] No, I don’t run on a treadmill in heels. That’s a bit extreme. But I do practice my choreography in heels. And I have a rule that when I have my heels on, everyone has to have their heels on too. Sometimes the dancers are like, “Oh, God, we hope Beyoncé comes in late,” because I’ll go all day. And in the end, I’ll have blisters and my toes will have bruises. It’s really hard sometimes. I still do all the boring things that everyone else does in regular workouts like squats and the treadmill. But I mainly get in shape from doing the choreography during those long 12-hour rehearsals for two months before a tour.

Next: Beyoncé on making “Single Ladies,” giving back to fans.

Were you surprised by the immense popularity of the “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” video?

Out of all my videos, it was the least expensive and took the least amount of time. And it ended up being the most iconic. I absolutely didn’t expect that — I don’t think anyone did. But I knew exactly what I wanted to do: Keep it simple. I’ve done so many things in videos with different hair and wardrobe changes, different sets and lights. I just wanted to keep this one really minimal. And once we got on the set, it was like, “Wait a minute. This is something special.”

I’d seen this 1969 video [featuring Gwen Verdon], this one take of amazing Bob Fosse choreography set against a white background. And I thought, “Wow, despite all the technology we have now, wouldn’t it be great to just strip it all down — without a bunch of different camera shots and cuts, without any hair and wardrobe changes — and make it all about the performance?” We had exactly 12 hours to film that video. We did it after shooting “If I Were a Boy,” so I used the same director and same crew, renting out a studio in New Jersey. From the black leotards to incorporating some of Fosse’s 1969 choreography into our modern choreography, it was just a conscious effort at keeping everything simple.

Outside of music, you’re committed to several charitable causes. What attracted you to these particular organizations?

I’m like everyone else. There are certain things I’m passionate about that are close to my heart. I’m so inspired by the children in Make a Wish. It gives my life a way bigger purpose when I know I can bring someone joy, especially someone in a hospital whose childhood is basically sacrificed. And their families are sacrificing too. After being in hospitals, dealing with needles, medicines and all the physical and mental pain these kids and families go through…for me to know that I can take them away from that is very important.

Ever since I was 9 years old, I’ve been working with my pastor to help the hungry and homeless. So on every tour, I’ve done something to help fight hunger. And this time we were able to provide 3.5 million meals — that’s such a huge accomplishment. I’m grateful to work with General Mills and Hamburger Helper and be a part of something on such a large scale as Feeding America. I’m just so surprised at how many young people came to the concerts with canned goods and were concerned about this cause. They helped make this happen. It wasn’t me.

Our family charity, the Survivor Foundation, is still growing. Then there’s GEMS [Girls Educational and Mentoring Services]. I saw something about it on television and wanted to help. It’s real important for people not to judge. That’s why I sit down and talk to these ladies about what inspires me to be strong, and they inspire me as well. To talk and cry with these ladies, to hug these ladies and invite them to the shows to hear songs about empowering women to set their own standards in relationships and build self-esteem. Those are things I can share with these young women. These are all things that have something to do with my purpose in life.

Next: Beyoncé on her first fragrance and next movie project.

And you’re just as busy on the entrepreneurial side, dating back to your association with L’Oreal.

I have worked with L’Oreal since I was 18 and it continues to be a great relationship. And with the clothing line that I started with my mother [Tina Knowles], I’m still making sure the brand is true to what I like and what I think my fans will like. Making it affordable for them was very important. At my concerts, we’ve offered seats for $10 so that people who can’t afford it can attend.

I don’t realize all that I do until I do interviews like this. And then I’m like, “Oh, my God, how is this possible?” But I usually break things up and focus on one thing at a time. It is a lot and thank God I love it, because I don’t know how else I would be able to do it. You just make it happen.

Something else that’s about to happen is your new Coty fragrance. Can you give us a sneak preview?

I’ve been partners with and have endorsed different fragrances. But this is my first time developing my own fragrance. I’ve spent over a year having meetings, working with the perfumeries. It’s been really interesting. I’d done a little of that in the past, approving a couple of things here and there. But I’ve been a part of this from ground zero. We’ve gone back and forth and back and forth over and over again to get the perfect fragrance. Everything I love, that’s what this fragrance is. Fragrance makes me feel sexy, so I want my fragrance to be sexy and seductive.

My favorite color is gold and that’s also being incorporated into the project. I grew up playing with my mother’s perfumes and love antique bottles, so I wanted my fragrance to have this antique feeling. The bottle looks like a piece of art. I can’t reveal the name yet, but it comes out early next year. I’ve already shot the commercial.

Have you lined up your next acting gig yet?

I did two movies last year, which was hard because I had the album and a tour. I’m on tour right now until March and I’ll be going back and forth for some of the award shows. So probably next year after the tour something may happen. I’ve gotten a lot of scripts and out of those there are 10 that are very good. So I have to pick the one I really love.

All of the work I’ve put into my films has paid off because the type of scripts I’m getting now has completely changed. I’ve always wanted to do something darker and more dramatic because I’m much better at drama than anything else. I don’t think anyone knew that until I played Etta James; people could see my range. And then I did the other movie, “Obsessed.” It was so much fun, especially the fight scenes. I fell in love with doing those stunts. That was my first time ever doing anything with action in it. Eventually, I would love to do something with a little more action in it.

I’m not in a rush because acting for me is fun — something I do because I enjoy it. I don’t have to do it. So I’m going to be patient and find the right film to work on next year or whenever it works out.

Next: Beyoncé on the future of Sasha Fierce, Destiny’s Child.

Is music still as much fun for you as it was in the beginning?

The truth is I really love what I do. I live for it. I’ve invested so much of myself in my career that I cherish it. I’ve worked too hard to do something to damage what I’ve basically dedicated my life to.

I still definitely get a high every time I get onstage. But it’s not just the performing. It’s also coming up with creative marketing ideas and doing cool collaborations, like my fragrance. I love everything about this.

What else is on your to-do list?

I’m interested in a lot of different things. I’d like to get involved in videogames since I really love Wii Fit. I think it would be a great idea to incorporate choreography because for me my workout is way more fun when it involves dancing as opposed to running on a boring treadmill. So I would love to do some kind of fitness game but incorporate dance and performance into it. I think a lot of women would enjoy that.

I also want to continue to produce films — even if I’m not in them — as well as a documentary on my life. Actually, I’d like to do a film loosely based on my father’s [Mathew Knowles] childhood and school years. He’s had an interesting life. But that will probably be in a couple of years.

Is there a chance you’ll start your own label?

Yes, eventually, when I have time. I’m doing so many things, I have to slow down a bit so I can focus. [laughs]

Have you thought about taking a longer break after this tour?

I think after maybe a month or two months, I’d be really bored. But I don’t see myself working this hard for the rest of my life. It’s just too much to do forever. I thank God I started touring and building a fan base when I was really young. So now if I took off a couple of years, I think I’d still be able to come back, go on tour and do records. I’m still a young woman.

What sparks your creative vision?

I’ve always tried to pick songs and singles that were a part of pop culture, a part of things that people are passionate about and want to talk about and debate. “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” is an uptempo song that’s fun. But it’s also something women go through every day. “Irreplaceable” is also about something people experience every day. More than anything, I always try to challenge myself and do a variety of different things. On “Sasha Fierce,” the slow album showcased my vocal ability a lot more. And I had the uptempo album to showcase the dance.

I’ve tried to be an artist who pays attention to detail and who is also a strong vocalist, performer and songwriter. I’m very happy to see other female artists challenging themselves to do everything. That’s something we started with Destiny’s Child. We were very young, writing and producing our own songs. I’m very proud of that.

What will Beyoncé/Sasha Fierce be doing in five to 10 years?

Probably the same things. But maybe I’ll be spacing it out a little more. [laughs] Not every year; maybe every three years.

Maybe also a mom?

In five years…yes, probably.

Any ideas yet about your next album?

I haven’t actually started writing anything. Maybe after I leave for Australia on the next leg of this tour.

You can’t end this interview without one last question: Any truth to the rumor about a Destiny’s Child reunion tour and/or album?

I don’t know if we would do another record anytime soon. And we haven’t talked about a tour. That’s just been something floating in the media. If people keep talking about it, maybe we’ll do it. If that’s what people want… who knows? But whenever the girls need me or I need the girls, we’re here for each other.

Chart Beat Thursday: Live-Blogging The Hot 100

by Gary Trust | September 24, 2009 1:58 EDT

HOW HOT IS IT?: There’s so much action on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, perhaps it makes the most sense to simply run down the chart’s most notable positions, number-by-number, dissecting the numerous highlights. Kind of like a live blog of the survey, the way you might’ve scanned the tally in pre-Internet times, when you used to go to the local newspaper/cigar store, picked up the latest print issue of Billboard and began perusing it eagerly in a quiet nook. (Only this time, a shop owner won’t yell at you to buy the magazine or get out).

No. 1, “I Gotta Feeling,” the Black Eyed Peas. The quartet leads the Hot 100 for a 25th consecutive week, extending its record streak. The song reigns for a 13th week, one-upping the 12-week lead of prior single “Boom Boom Pow.” Interscope Records likewise adds to its record run at the summit for a record label, ruling for a 26th straight week; Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” led for one frame directly prior to the Peas’ stranglehold. “I Gotta Feeling” is one of nine titles in the Hot 100’s history to hold sway for at least 13 weeks.

No. 4, “You Belong With Me,” Taylor Swift. After becoming the first country artist to win a Moonman at the MTV Video Music Awards Sept. 13, Swift continues breaking through barriers. The song becomes the first country crossover to top Radio Songs/Hot 100 Airplay (2-1) since the list began incorporating Nielsen BDS-monitored data in 1990 (when Swift was less than a year old). Among country acts since on Radio Songs, Shania Twain‘s “You’re Still the One” (1998), Faith Hill‘s “Breathe” (2000) and Swift’s “Love Story” (in March) each reached No. 2.

No. 5, “Empire State of Mind,” Jay-Z + Alicia Keys. After performing the song to close the VMA festivities, the duo soars 50-5 on the Hot 100 and 23-1 on Digital Songs.

No. 7, “Paparazzi,” Lady Gaga. Further proof that her best new artist win at the VMAs was a smart choice: bounding 11 notches, Lady Gaga joins Christina Aguilera, Beyonce and Fergie as the only women this decade to collect four Hot 100 top 10s from a debut album. “Just Dance” and “Poker Face” each led the chart, and “LoveGame” rose to No. 5.

No. 8, “Forever,” Drake featuring Kanye West, Lil Wayne & Eminem. The superstar track from the upcoming LeBron James documentary “More Than a Game” is one of eight songs to launch in the top 10 this year. Three belong to Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana: “Party in the U.S.A.,” “The Climb” and “He Could Be the One.”

No. 18, “Sweet Dreams,” Beyonce. After graciously allowing Taylor Swift a second chance at an acceptance speech at the VMAs after things went south-by-West for the young country star, Beyonce bounds 15 places for her fifth top 20 hit from “I Am…Sasha Fierce.”

No. 22, “21 Guns,” Green Day. A rise of one more notch will enable the song to join the group of songs whose peak positions are represented in their titles. Prince‘s “7” and Seduction’s “Two to Make It Right” could soon initiate a new member.

No. 37, “Uprising,” Muse. The British rock trio performed the song at the VMAs and released its third album, “The Resistance,” two days later. The single re-enters the Hot 100, while the set blasts onto the Billboard 200 at No. 3, a new career-best peak for Muse on the chart.

No. 49, “I’m Yours,” Jason Mraz. Along with the Black Eyed Peas’ record occupancy at No. 1, Mraz has been rewriting Hot 100 history each week since the multi-format smash logged its 69th chart frame, tying LeAnn Rimes‘ “How Do I Live” for longest chart stay, and then passed it with its 70th week. This week, the song dips from No. 38 in its astonishing 75th week. (Could the end be near for its chart life? Titles more than 20 weeks old are removed from the Hot 100 once they rank below the top 50).

No. 50, “Happy,” Leona Lewis. After commanding the Hot 100 for four weeks last year with “Bleeding Love,” the singer previews her sophomore album, “Echo,” due Nov. 17, with a song she co-wrote with OneRepublic‘s Ryan Tedder. On Digital Songs, it starts at No. 22.

No. 66, “I Want to Know What Love Is,” Mariah Carey. The song returns to the Hot 100 24 years and 10 months after Foreigner‘s original bowed at No. 45, eventually leading the chart for two weeks. Previously charting with covers of the song were the New Jersey Mass Gospel Choir, who sang on Foreigner’s recording (No. 37 on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, 1985), the Barrio Boyz (No. 40 on Tropical Songs, 2001) and Wynonna (No. 14 on Adult Contemporary, 2004).

No. 75, “Meet Me Halfway,” the Black Eyed Peas. Can the group replace itself again on the Hot 100? The journey begins for the third single from “The E.N.D.” On the Pop Songs airplay chart, it debuts at No. 36.

No. 90, “We Weren’t Born to Follow,” Bon Jovi. The New Jersey rockers celebrate 25 years of charting on the Hot 100 with, fittingly, their 25th entry on the list. The song introduces “The Circle,” due Nov. 10.

No. 96, “Cowboy Casanova,” Carrie Underwood. The track’s release to digital retailers Tuesday (Sept. 22) will send the song soaring on next week’s Hot 100 and Digital Songs charts. On Country Songs, the first taste of “Play On,” available Nov. 3, flies 18-11 as the chart’s Greatest Gainer.

No. 99, “Check My Brain,” Alice in Chains. This actually marks the venerable band’s first Hot 100 appearance. In the ’90s, its best-known songs, including 1994’s “No Excuses,” were not released as commercially-available singles and, according to chart rules at the time, were not allowed to rank on the Hot 100 despite their airplay popularity. “Check My Brain” leads Rock Songs for a third week.

(Boy, it’s smoky in here. Let’s see what else is happening before we’re shown the door …)

CHECKING IN: The legendary Chubby Checker celebrates 50 years of charting in Billboard, as “The Fly” debuts on Hot Singles Sales at No. 40. Checker first appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 dated May 23, 1959, with “The Class.” The original version of “The Fly” reached No. 7 on the Hot 100 in 1961.

Checker’s milestone accomplishment marks the latest lofty honor for the beloved entertainer. Last year, Billboard named his classic “The Twist” the No. 1 song of the Hot 100’s first 50 years.

Upon being apprised of his latest achievement, Checker told Billboard in an e-mail, “It’s so nice to get this kind of recognition, after all these years.”

Checker’s label representative, Gary Lefkowith, adds, “Chubby is so grateful for his continued success; those were the first words out of his mouth. He continues to do so many live dates, as well. Even after 50 years, the shows keep coming. A new gig came in today, and Chubby was so happy because he still loves making music, entertaining people and getting paid for what he loves to do.

“He feels God’s blessings everyday and never takes that for granted.”

SOUNDS LIKE A ‘PLAN’: Nelly Furtado‘s first Spanish-language album, “Mi Plan,” opens atop Latin Albums and Latin Pop Albums. Lead single “Manos Al Aire” spends a fourth week at No. 1 on Latin Songs.

Furtado’s new set concurrently debuts at No. 39 on the Billboard 200, where all four of her chart entries have reached the top 40. “Whoa, Nelly!” rose to No. 24 in 2001, “Folklore” peaked at No. 38 in 2003 and “Loose” debuted atop the July 1, 2006, tally, totaling 70 chart weeks through Nov. 3, 2007.

KEYS TO THE CHART: Alicia Keys logs her best start on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, as “Doesn’t Mean Anything” begins at No. 32. Among her 18 career entries on the chart, “Like You’ll Never See Me Again” represented her prior best blastoff, launching at No. 37 in November 2007.

Keys’ new track, from her upcoming fourth studio album, makes the third-grandest entrance on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs this year. The chart’s current No. 1, Maxwell‘s “Pretty Wings,” flew in at No. 22, and Whitney Houston‘s “I Look To You” arrived at No. 27.

NEW (AGE) NO. 1: Jim Brickman collects his 14th leader on New Age Albums, as “Beautiful World” commences atop the list. The piano player/songwriter ties Mannheim Steamroller for most No. 1s in the chart’s 21-year history.

Yanni ranks third with 12 New Age toppers, followed by Enya and George Winston (six apiece).

COLOURIZED: Between 1988 and 1993, Living Colour sent four albums onto the Billboard 200. Its first entry, “Vivid,” vaulted the highest, reaching No. 6 on May 6, 1989, the same week that the set’s “Cult of Personality” peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100. The band was named best new artist at the 1989 MTV Video Music Awards.

This week, the New York funk-rockers return after 16 years (they were disbanded between 1995 and 2000). Their fifth studio album, “The Chair in the Doorway,” debuts on the Billboard 200 at No. 161.

IN MEMORY, THROUGH MUSIC: Fans bid a fond farewell to two performers.

Following the death Sept. 16 at age 72 of Peter, Paul & Mary‘s Mary Travers, the famed folk act’s 2005 collection “The Very Best Of” debuts at No. 29 on Top Pop Catalog Albums (viewable at The trio had last placed on a Billboard album chart in 1987, when “No Easy Walk to Freedom” spent five weeks on the survey, peaking at No. 173.

Peter, Paul & Mary charted 19 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 from 1962 to 1970, with its last entry, the John Denver composition “Leaving on a Jet Plane,” becoming the group’s sole No. 1.

The passing of actor Patrick Swayze at 57 on Sept. 14 spurred a surge in sales for the soundtrack to his breakthrough movie. The 1987 companion to “Dirty Dancing” re-enters the Soundtracks album chart at No. 13, and the set’s 20th anniversary edition returns at No. 20.

22 years ago this week, the movie’s signature song, Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes‘ “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life,” debuted on the Hot 100 at No. 73. It would go on to lead the chart dated Nov. 28, 1987.

Launch Slideshow

Beyonce and Lady Gaga were honored today (Oct. 2) with the Woman of the Year and Rising Star awards, respectively, during Billboard’s annual Women In Music luncheon held at New York’s Pierre Hotel.

Lady Gaga, sporting a see-through dress decorated with feathers and human hair, arrived first. “Twelve months ago I never would have imagined being here and receiving this award,” Gaga told

Inside, Billboard’s Publisher, Howard Appelbaum, gave the welcoming remarks before introducing Bill Werde, Billboard’s Editorial Director. He introduced Billboard’s Women In Music Power Player List, which includes Universal Motown Records President Sylvia Rhone, MTV Chairman/CEO Judy McGrath and William Morris’ Cara Lewis, noting that the 2009 group “was the most diverse yet.”

Werde then introduced Lady Gaga, saying that “She’s procovative, fearless and most importantly, a prodigious songwriter.” After a short speech highlighting all of her achievements in the past year, followed by a video reel, Gaga accepted the award herself. “I didn’t expect to be accepted into the pop community like I have,” Gaga said, holding back tears. “With help from radio program directors, the gay community, fans and people like Billboard we had a remarkable year. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

Gaga was then interviewed by NBC’s “Today” co-host Hoda Kotb, during which she addressed the cancellation of her upcoming “Fame Kills” tour with Kanye West. “Everyone makes mistakes,” she said of West’s now legendary MTV VMA’s outburst. “It’s unfortunate, but he’s a good person. And I think its important to stand by friends.”

Werde then introduced Billboard’s 2009 Woman of the Year recipient. “It is theoretically possible someone on some other planet had a better year than Beyonce,” he quipped. “But I’m not buying it.”

“It’s obvious how classy she is,” Werde continued about Beyonce, who was accompanied by her mother and father, Matthew and Tina Knowles, and Michelle Williams from Destiny’s Child. Beyonce accepted the award, remarking “I am the luckiest woman in the world.”

Beyonce then took the hot seat alongside radio personality and Oprah’s best friend, Gayle King, for a Q&A during which she was probed about her relationship with husband Jay-Z, her position as a role model for young women, and her goals for the future. “I really want to win an Oscar,” she revealed.

The event closed with heart-rending renditions of Beyonce’s hits “Halo” and “Single Ladies,” performed by Staten Island grade schoolers, the P.S. 22 Chorus.

Sexy model Alonna James

Alonna_James_model_swimwear_photos2.jpgI’m originally from Baltimore, MD and because I grew up and army brat I’ve moved to so many different places. I currently live in Tampa, FL, but you can frequently catch me in Jersey/NYC, Bmore, and North Carolina. I’m hoping to add to the list in the near future.

Modeling is what I do full time right now and as frustrating as it can be at times I do love it. I love the shoots because I love to play dress up and play a different role than what I am on the regular. On my even days I’m a great person to be around. I love to laugh and joke, I’m naturally clumsy, I always have a story to tell, I know how to listen to people and give advise, especially my friends, and last but not least….I LOVE MY PETS!! Everyone that knows me knows I’m an animal person. I have 2 Maltese (Boo and Juliette), a Lab/Chow mix (Bear), a cat (Halo), and the new addition the 126lb big baby of a Rotti (Taire). So there is a full house over here. Believe me if I could I would have a zoo. As for my odd days I can be the most grouchy bitch on earth, but only my friends and family know how to deal with me on those days and just brush it off. I love you guys!

Before the modeling began I worked in animal hospitals. That is the other passion in my life. I truly miss the last clinic I was at in NC. I miss my friends at work and there was never a dull day there.
