2018 has proven to be a prolific year for the signature EDM-pop band known as the Chainsmokers. This duo includes Drew Taggart who is just 28 years old, and Alex Pall who is 32. The group formed in New York City and quickly became noticed after releasing their 2014 club hit, “#Selfie”. Two years later the Chainsmokers released, “Don’t Let Me Down” featuring Daya, as well as, “Closer” featuring Halsey. These EDM and future-bass pop hits gained them even more recognition across the globe, adding to their prominent success.
Last year’s album titled, “Memories…Do Not Open” ended up topping both national and international charts while reaching platinum status. The success from this album rolled over into 2018, making it a definite contributor to their #2 spot on Forbes‘, “The World’s Highest-Paid DJs Of 2018” list. The Chainsmokers were only preceded by Calvin Harris, and surpassed even Tiësto and David Guetta. The combined funds accumulated from their annual touring and music production equaled a grand total of $45.5 million in just 2018 alone. That’s just $2.5 million under their predecessor, Calvin Harris. With such a high amount of success in an active three-year time span, it is speculative as to whether they will stay at number two, or top the charts in 2019.
The Chainsmokers have introduced the world of EDM and trap music to mainstream listeners across the world with their upbeat yet meaningful tracks, and they continue to deliver with each hit that they release. If Taggart and Pall continue on this avenue of success, there’s no telling what 2019 could bring in terms of their wealth and prominence as a DJ and production force. If 2018 is any indication, their place on Forbes’, “The World’s Highest-Paid DJs“ will either remain secure or move to the number one spot.

This working organization is credited with opening 10 broadcast media centers that are called Seacrest Studios in pediatric hospitals all across the country.

Ryan also has his own clothing line for men. When asked in an interview, Ryan Seacrest stated that he is normally participating in around eight or nine jobs at a time.

The electronic music sector has become one of the fastest-growing in recent years with many new DJs and musical collaborations popping up across the music industry with pioneers such as Amici leading the way forward. Despite the success of these early DJ performers the path taken has often been a similar one with the DJ remaining hidden from view behind their booth until the arrival of The Chainsmokers as the leadingelectronic music pioneers in the U.S. with a growing band of followers across the world.
Alex Pall has not been satisfied with the opportunities presented to his band in remaining a facelessaspect of the electronic music scene like so many of his fellow DJs; instead, Pall and musical collaborator, Andrew Taggart have decided to take ownership of their music and image in many different ways and change the overall view of electronic music to the listeners of the world. In the view of both members of The Chainsmokers, the time has come for Dj like themselves to be seen as independent performers and musicians who should be seen as the authors of their own work.
In a break with the traditional view of DJs, both Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart have appeared on their songs as vocalists performing alongside some of the best-known singers of recent times. The Chainsmokers have broken with many traditions over recent years including stepping into the songwriting room and taking ownership of their own songs by co-writing and basing their songs on their own experiences.
Alex Pall has been at the heart of the process of changing the image and success rate of The Chainsmokers as he believes a higher level of creativity has allowed the duo to take far more pride in the work they have undertaken. As the success of the band grows, Pall is playing an even greater role in the development of the image of the duo as they continue to build towards global success.
The reason I switched to FreedomPop is because I started realizing that I was being overcharged for the services I was using on a daily basis. Although I use my Internet service almost every day, I didn’t want to pay such a high amount of money for the service. I decided that I would try and save as much money as possible, but I didn’t know how it was going to do that. My current Internet company was charging me $75 a month for the service, but I wasn’t getting anything else, not even wifi.
I decided that I would look around for other Internet service providers, and I came across FreedomPop by accident. It turns out that FreedomPop allows its customers to get free Internet and cell phone service if they want it, as long as they stay within a certain plan. It sounded way too good to be true, so I did some more research. After I visited the website for the company, I realize that everything is exactly what they said. I wasted no time in signing up for the FreedomPop services, and within the same week, I had Internet service in my home.
The best thing about the Internet service is that it comes with its own wifi. I can’t believe I was paying $75 a month to another company that didn’t even give me wifi in my home. I have a laptop that I rarely used, because I couldn’t get Internet on it, without going through a lot of set up. I now can hook up my laptop to the wifi in my home, and I can use both my computer and laptop simultaneously. Another thing I love is the price, which is free at this point.
If I need additional data on my Internet service plan, then I can purchase it for such a low rate that my previous Internet provider would be ashamed of what they were charging me. For just a few dollars I could easily get more data from FreedomPop. The data cost is much lower than what some of these other service providers charge if I go over their data allotment. FreedomPop is a great service provider, and I’m grateful for the fact that I am able to get the Internet for free because it saves me a lot of money. FreedomPop is a great Internet service provider, and I plan to stick with them.

If you’ve ever spilled something on yourself while eating, you may have had someone jokingly tell you, “You look good in what you eat.” However, Olivia Mears is a young lady who takes that phrase even more literally. She is the artist and costume designer behind the dress that will be featured in a new Taco Bell ad coming out this Sunday. (No, it isn’t that black and blue or gold and white dress this time). Alexei Beltyukov has read that Mear’s dress is of interest to Taco Bell, because it is completely fashioned out of food wrappers from the fast-food chain. Click Here. You might even say that she looks “good enough to eat.” Groan if you want to, but Mears won first place and a trip to Los Angeles for her efforts in a contest that was totally up her alley. How much better does it get than to have fun, to use your giftings, to win a prize, to get a trip, to star in a TV advertisement, to do something you love, and to take a stand for something you believe in?
Over the past four seasons, American Horror Story has become one of the most interesting shows on television. No other show has been able to blend true horror with comedy and drama. The show has also become known for its amazing casting, as it continues to attract some of Hollywood’s top talent.
According to Entertainment Weekly, American Horror Story is living up to its reputation by having cast Lady Gaga in the next season of the anthology series. Lady Gaga will be a regular in the series, which will air this fall on FX. It will also market her first major role as an actress.
Based on the way last season’s Freak Show utilized music, do not be surprised if Lady Gaga will also be able to utilize her musical talents in the show. Since all of her previous acting gigs were very short, it will be interesting to see how she does in a much larger role over an entire television season.
