Carrie Underwood and Thomas Rhett tied at the ACM Awards, and people are not happy

Carrie Underwood and Thomas Rhett tied at the ACM Awards, and people are not happy

There was a shocker of a win at Wednesday night’s Academy of Country Music Awards, and it didn’t go over well with some viewers.

Carrie Underwood and Thomas Rhett tied for one of the biggest awards of the night, Entertainer of the Year.

It was Underwood’s third win, tying her with Taylor Swift as the woman with the most wins in the category, while it was Rhett’s first time.

But on social media there were some gripes that Underwood shouldn’t have had to share the award and that it was misogynistic.

“You couldn’t stand to give it to a female just one freaking year, so you make her share it and award the male as well?!” one person tweeted in response to the Academy’s tweet announcing the win.

For their part, Underwood and Rhett were gracious in sharing the win.

“Keith, what is happening right now,” Rhett said to the show’s host, Keith Urban, before launching into his acceptance speech.

Underwood bumped elbows with Urban before accepting the award, in which she gave “all glory, glory to God.”

“Thank you to the ACM not just for this (award) but for putting me in such incredible company,” she said. “I am more than happy to share this with Thomas Rhett and just to have my name mentioned with his.”

Elton John is getting his own Barbie doll

Elton John is getting his own Barbie doll

Elton John is getting his very own Barbie doll. And while the doll won’t look like the Rocket Man, it will be styled in his likeness.

The limited-edition Barbie doll, which was released on Mattel’s website on Thursday, will have a glittery top and flared denim complete with the singer’s initials.

Her multi-colored “Elton” bomber jacket has stars on its sleeves and rainbow stripes on its hem. She will also have rainbow-patterned platform boots, a purple bowler hat and Elton’s signature sparkly pink sunglasses.

“The Elton John Barbie doll is a bold collaboration that personifies two cultural icons and honors the extraordinary artistry and musicianship of a stellar performer,” the doll’s description on the Mattel website reads.

So, what’s the occasion?

The doll, which retails for $50, was released to mark the 45th anniversary of the singer’s record-breaking two-day performance at the Dodgers Stadium in October 1975.

At the time, the 100,000 attendees made it the largest concert ever for a single artist.

“Barbie is an icon in her own right, so having her pay tribute to my work and personal style is a real honor,” Elton John told Rolling Stone. “I hope that she inspires fans everywhere to fearlessly pursue their own dreams and limitless potential.”

The Elton John Barbie doll can be bought on the Mattel website or on Walmart’s online store.
