Grammy Shaft-ola for Kanye
Ahhhh…the Grammys. Time for all the stars in music to get together for some really god awful collaborations, five trophies can get mercifully handed over to U2 and Kanye West can get screwed out of another Album of the Year. Yes, he deserved it more so than the other crap that was up for it.
In case you missed it: John Legend took a couple, Kelly Clarkson represented American Idol by grabbing two for her mantle, one of which will probably go to Simon, and Madonna looked like a worn-out slut, but what’s new.
Speaking of American Idol, there is a guy from my town down here in NC who made it into the top 24. Whoop-t-shit. Guess he’s quite the douchebag around town, go figure.
U2 walked away with album of the year. Kanye will surely start up his “I got screwed at the Grammys” shit, pronto. Fiona Apple showed up and looked like a ghost. Lay off the smack Ms. Apple. And Sly Stone was honored with one of the dumbest tributes ever, funked up.
Mariah has one beat, but giant breasts.
White Stripes 1, The Arcade Fire 0.
Beyonce is beautiful, Gwen Stafani is still hot (with child), Terri Hatcher is on crack and Alicia Keys still looks like a pear, a juicy pear.
Mr. West had the biggest performance of the night (chalked full with a marching band, frat dudes, half-naked bitches and Jamie Foxx).
Not to be out done by the mix-up of Jay-Z, Linkin Park and Sir Paul McCartney was something. Not sure what to make of that. So glad Jay-Z took off making albums to sing “Yesterday.”
See for yourself
Just can’t get over Fiona Apple…. she must be up to 12 pounds by now!
Same old shit at work. They fired the dumb girl and things are getting better. Went to a NC State game last Sunday, bad ass. ACC basketball is for real, as was Duke/Carolina two nights ago. This state loves them some college basketball.
Gramps is coming down here in the next few weeks. I plan to unleash him on bouncers in SC.
