Music Power Rankings: Adam Yauch, Jack White and Michael Jackson
1. Adam Yauch: RIP MCA.
2. Amanda Palmer: The former Dresden Doll raises more than $400,000 on Kickstarter for her next album. That’s kick ass.
3. Jack White: One is not the loneliest number: White scores his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 as a solo artist: a feat he never reached as half of the White Stripes.
4. Michael Jackson: Pepsi deal will result in his image in on more than 1 billion Pepsi cans in the, perhaps oddly, titled “Live for Now” campaign.
5. Skylar Laine: Another favorite leaves “American Idol” earlier than expected. She’ll be back on a record label near you soon.
6. Dave Grohl: Add director to the Foo Fighter’s resume: He’s behind a new documentary on Sound City, the Los Angeles’ studio where, among others, Nirvana’s “Nevermind” was recorded.
7. The Grammys: A New York judge dismissed a suit filed by a Latin jazz musician who alleged that the cutting out 31 categories hurt artists’ earning power.
8. Carly Rae Jepsen: Justin Bieber’s buddy scores her first top 5 hit with “Call Me Maybe.” As the tattoo on the hot dude in the video (viewed 47 million times) states, “The sky’s the limit.”
9. Justin Bieber: Sure, his video for “Boyfriend” finally debuted, but it’s his “Most Viral Video Ever” for Ryan Seacrest that deserves the attention: Puppies plus sneezing babies = total win.
10. Casper Smart: Jennifer Lopez’s boyfriend lands the job of choreographing her new tour. Nice perk of dating the boss.
