Carly Rae Jepsen took home the American Music Award for New Artist of the Year on Sunday evening, making her the target of many an angry tween. But hey, now she has something in common with Taylor Swift. Also in music news, Psy and MC Hammer had the evening's most celebrated performance, Rihanna's tour plane is starting to smell, someone tried to get Alabama Shakes to do reality television, Slipknot wants to collaborate with Justin Bieber, and more.

"More Like Carly Rae Kill Yourself!"
One Direction didn't bother to attend the American Music Awards on Sunday, as they're a touch too busy promoting their new album Take Me Home in the UK. They also didn't have any reason to show up, as the quintet lost the New Artist of the Year award to "Call Me Maybe" singer Carly Rae Jepsen. 

Almost immediately after Carly's win, angry One Directioners took to Twitter to spew some vitriol. "carly rae jepsen more like carly rae kill yourself," one fan sniped. Another yell-tweeted, "CARLY RAE JEPSEN I'LL KILL YOU MAYBE." One fan directed her hate at everyone who dared vote for Carly: "IM SCREAMING SO LOUD WHO VOTED FOR CARLY RAE JEPSEN I WILL KILL YR FIRSTBORN."

Of course, this kind of behavior is really nothing new for teenyboppers. Teen pop death threats, a tale as old as time. Just ask Taylor Swift, who's been getting her fair share of online hate over those rumors that she and Harry Styles are an item
