The most blogged artist of 2012 wasnâ€™t Lana Del Rey (photos)By Nic Turiciano | December 19th, 2012 | No Comments »
It seems like it was almost a year ago that a blogging groundswell culminated in Lana Del Reyâ€™s infamously bad â€śSaturday Night Liveâ€ť appearance â€¦ and thatâ€™s because it was. But as wonderful as watching that trainwreck was, it turns out the Internet had even more love for another artist this year.
The Hype Machine has released its Music Blog Zeitgeist 2012 list, which ranks the top 50 most blogged artists. Defeating Lana Del Rey for the number one spot this year is Canadian electro-jamming, hair-dying artist Grimes.
At number 39, the only Colorado artist listed is Tennis, (not really) proving that even Coloradoâ€™s musicians are too busy enjoying the great outdoors to concern themselves with the interweb.
That doesnâ€™t really matter though, right? After all, Grimes isnâ€™t up for a Grammy (ahem: the Lumineers).
