Music service Spotify has released their annual lists of the year’s most streamed songs, and, to no surprise to anyone who turned on a radio in 2014, Pharell Williams’ “Happy” was the most stream song across the globe. “Rather Be,” from electronic outfit Clean Bandit, Calvin Harris’ “Summer”, Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” and “All of Me” from John Legend rounded out the international list’s top five. For the most part, the list of America’s most streamed songs doesn’t look too different, with one notable exception. Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy”, which didn’t crack the global top 10, was the most stream song in the country. Also, you may notice that current pop music queen Taylor Swift is curiously absent from both lists. Swift recently pulled all of her music from the streaming service after complaining about their royalty payouts. You can go here to see all of the year’s top songs across major genres ... Discuss

In an interview on The Howard Stern Show, Lady Gaga says a record producer raped her when she was 19. She does not name the producer (a lawyer says it's superstar producer Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald, who is also fielding a sexual assault charge from Ke$ha, but Gaga's camp has denied those claims), but says she was taken advantage of and has been too scared to talk about it.

I went through some horrific things that I'm able to laugh [at] now, because I've gone through a lot of mental and physical therapy and emotional therapy to heal over the years. My music's been wonderful for me. But, you know, I was a shell of my former self at one point. I was not myself. To be fair, I was about 19. I went to Catholic school and then all this crazy stuff happened, and I was going, 'Oh, is this just the way adults are?'...I was very naïve.

She also said her music has helped her deal with the pain of her alleged assault. "I'm going to take responsibility for all my pain looking beautiful. All the things that I've made out of my strife, I did that" ... Discuss

Sia's music video for "Chandelier"—starring the hypnotic dancing stylings of 11-year-old Maddie Ziegler in a room that looks like it was ripped from the set of The Walking Dead—is the undisputed music video of the year. Or, it was. Now Chuck Jose has lost a fantasy football bet and, as punishment, had to recreate Sia's video shot-for-shot, with nothing but his wits, dance moves and a bodysuit. And, just like that, there's a new contender for music video of the year. Take it away, Chuck ... Discuss
