The 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees have officially been announced and making the list, Janet Jackson and late rapper, Tupac Shakur. The big question, however, is: Will Gene Simmons speak out this time?

Last year, the KISS frontman and rapper Ice Cube went head to head over N.W.A.’s induction into the 2016 Hall of Fame and Simmon’s continuous comments suggesting rappers shouldn’t be inducted. “Let me know when @JimiHendrix gets into the hip hop hall of fame. Than you’ll have a point,” Gene tweeted to Ice Cube after N.W.A.’s induction.

Ironically, just one year later, one of the most iconic rappers of all time has landed on the coveted list. To be nominated, artists must have released their first single or album at least 25 years ago — Pac released his first album 2Pacalyspse Now in 1991.

Of the 19 nominees, Janet Jackson also landed on the list. The beauty, who is expecting her first child with husband, Wissam Al Mana, later this year, also made the ballot last year.

Some of the other nominees include Pearl Jame, Chaka Khan, The Cars, Joan Baez, The Zombies, Kraftwerk, Yes, The Bad Brains, Chic, J. Geils Band, Jane’s Addiction, Joe Tex, Depeche Mode, MC5 and Steppenwolf.

The inductees will be announced in December 2016 and the official induction will be held in New York City in April 2017.

AMAs: Was Pink Hating On Christina Aguilera’s Whitney Houston Tribute? Why Her Stank Face Has Gone Viral!

Pink’s stank face officially became the GIF and meme of the 2017 American Music Awards.

It was during Christina Aguilera’s Whitney Houston tribute that cameras captured Pink making a not so sweet face. Now, given how spectacular the performance was, it could’ve been the “she’s killing it” stank face that musicians love to make.

But … given the pair’s history, fans are speculating that the pop star was simply not a fan of Aguilera’s set. “Pink I feel ya girl. That Whitney Houston tribute was horrendous. Christina tried it,” one fan said.

The good news is, Pink really did enjoy her former frenemy’s performance. “Yes. THIS. Christina f*cking killed it tonight for one of our favorite singers ever,” she tweeted on Sunday night. “This about Whitney, and I am in awe of Christina’s talent. Show the clip where I’m in tears, you negative Nancy’s.”

Pink and Christina have had ongoing beef for years, but during a recent appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, Pink explained that the two simply grew up. “She’s so talented, she’s a really sweet person. We made up on The Voice,” she said.

The singer added, “I hadn’t seen her in years and years an years. We became moms, we grew up, we hugged it out.”

There you have it folks, Pink and Christina are still on good terms.
