Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : February 24th 2016 Contents Adele may have cried all day after her
shaky Grammy performance last week,
but the British songstress reclaimed the
top spot on the weekly Billboard 200 album
chart on Monday as demand for her hit
album 25 remained strong three months
after its release.
Adele s 25 climbed from No 2 after clock-
ing a further 151,000 units across album
and song sales and streaming activity,
according to figures from Nielsen Sound-
Scan. The album has sold a total of 8.3 mil-
lion copies in the United States.
It features the song All I Ask, which Adele
sang last week at the televised Grammy
awards. But her performance was marred
by technical issues when a microphone fell
on the piano s strings and the singer unchar-
acteristically hit sharp and flat notes.
Later in the week, Adele appeared on
Ellen DeGeneres talk show and performed
a flawless rendition of the song, accompanied
by a candid interview in which she said she
was "so embarrassed" and "cried pretty
much all day" after the Grammys.
Other Grammy performers that saw a
boost in the top 10 of the Billboard 200
album charts included Canadian pop star
Justin Bieber, who won his first Grammy
award and climbed three spots to No 2 with
his album Purpose.
Country musician Chris Stapleton, who
picked up four Grammy awards, saw his
Traveller album climb to No 5 from No 11;
R&B star The Weeknd, who won two Gram-
mys, had his Beauty Behind the Madness
climb six spots to No 6; while Taylor Swift,
who won the coveted album of the year
Grammy Award, saw her 1989 record climb
12 spots to No 8.
The only new entry to crack into the top
10 this week was Hymns at No 4 by hus-
band-and-wife country music duo Joey +
On the Digital Songs chart, which meas-
ures online song sales, Flo Rida s My House
held the top spot for a second week with
135,000 copies sold. (reuters.com)
Local food blogger Sarina Nicole Bland has been
appointed Associate Editor of Cooking Sense, a
new Caribbean magazine.
The founder of TriniGourmet.com and author of
two e-books, Bland s work in local and regional
cuisine has been spotlighted in local media as well
as international outlets such as The New York Times,
Condé Nast Traveller and NPR, a release said.
"We chose to work with Sarina because she s one
of a few food bloggers who presents Caribbean cuisine
outside of the clichés and stereotypes that many
associate with it" states Hermina Charlery, editor-
in-chief of Cube Publishing, the Barbadian based
imprint behind Cooking Sense.
"Caribbean cuisine is more than jerk, curry, or
boiled ground provisions. Our cuisine caters to a
range of tastes; dishes can be gourmet, gluten-free,
vegan, haute, kosher, etc and still very Caribbean.
Sarina has done a good job showing this."
A celebration of our region s culinary diversity,
Cooking Sense aims to capture and share the essence
of Caribbean cuisine. It is currently published three
times a year in Barbados and St Lucia with plans to
enter the Trinidadian market later this year.
