I’m offended. The gays are supposed to have style, right? Then shouldn’t the people in attendance pay homage to that grand stereotype and dress themselves in clothes that don’t give the viewers at home secondhand embarrassment? I feel like everybody said “fuck these fake-ass awards. I’ma just throw on some scraps from JoAnn’s Fabrics and call it a day.”
I called this. I called this last summer when I saw the movie because that little girl took me places. When the Golden Globes completely snubbed her, I started to doubt that she’d make the short list for the Academy Awards. But the Oscars got it right. She is going to be huge.
The Grammys finally got a lot of things right this year.
Hunter Hayes broke out as country’s answer to Lauryn Hill, writing, producing, and playing all of the instruments on his debut at 20 years old. Tamia managed to score two nominations for her last album that slipped in under the radar. Carrie Underwood’s best single ever scored a couple of nominations, and Kelly Clarkson’s most consistent album got some love too. Frank Ocean, Gotye and fun. all came away with nominations of course, and Carly Rae won’t be as omnipresent at the ceremony as she was on radio this year. Biggest shocker: SWV got nominated for their reunion effort! Most obvious snub is definitely Adam Lambert who had one of the best pop albums in recent memory with vocal chops to match. Also, Nicki Minaj was deservedly shut out of the nominations.
I didn’t watch that foolishness. But this is CAW-MUH-DEE right here!! LOL all over the place. Just fast forward to 1:20. Jay & Kanye win the award. Kanye hugs Beyonce. Jay-Z does *not* hug Kim Kardashian, and she’s just standing there hella awkward lookin like Boo Boo the Fool. You can just see Jay-Z’s thought process in his body language.
“What is she waiting on? She better fall back. Did she see my actually talented wife next to me who is sitting up here not because I’m her man but because she has a reason for being on this planet? Why is she even breathing my air? I thought we had a separate tank for her…”
Grammy Week is a big deal out in LA. Everybody throws a party and invites all of the industry insiders to drink and have a good time. And people perform. These are clips of the performances you didn’t get to see. Watch Keke Wyatt and Faith Evans throw down like they’re still actually famous. And a clip of Brandy & Monica rehearsing their classic duet.
So this is what the 3 people who watched the SAG Awards were tweeting so furiously about! Her friends obviously don’t love her. I wish a muhfucka WOULD let me WALK OUT MY HOUSE looking like that. I would never speak to ANY of them again. Are you forreal? Wait, is this Punk’d?! This is Punk’d right? She wasn’t wearing this in any serious kind of way. Oh Rose Byrne. You are so clever, pulling a little Napoleon Dynamite/Ron Burgundy on us with your trans interpretation as the newest member of the Bee Gees.
