If I were ever interviewed and asked about the things I consider most important in life, music – what it’s meant to me through out my life – would be in the top three, right up there with family and whatever third thing I would come up with.
In general, I don’t watch any awards shows because they are so ridiculously over-the-top. There are only so many things I can hate-watch and awards shows are where I arbitrarily draw the line.
Yup. I draw the line and then I spend an hour the next day piecing together the highlights.
First up, Katy Perry! Pretty sure Ellen’s face looks exactly how mine would look if I got that close to Katy Perry’s amazeballs. I’m pretty sure she’s violating the whole dress code thing but she’s all, “I’m Katy Perry. What’re you gonna do, fine me?”
Highlights, dammit! This is about highlights. Must. Focus.
Oh, Adele! Honey honey honey.
I’m in two minds about this dress. On the one hand: UGH. On the other hand, as a woman with curves goin’ bam in every direction mahself, I can sympathize with how sick Adele must be of that same slimming black/classic silhouette that they put her in for every public appearance. And I bet that’s exactly what her record company proposed to her and she was probably all, “I’m Adele! What’re you gonna do, force me into another black dress? Bugger off!”
Seems Fist Brown didn’t stand for the ovation the audience gave Frank Ocean after he won his Grammy. Yer girl Adele was not havin’ it! Supposedly this is her giving Fist a good telling off. He’s so gross and annoying. But she just gave me another reason why we should be best friends. Call me, girl!
Speaking of gross and annoying, this. Wow. Four years to the day after he beat the daylights out of her, Riri cuddles up to her man, all smiles. I was gonna post the picture of her beat up face, but it’s really disturbing so here’s another shot instead:
Git it, girl. He’s a real prize and it looks like you won him!
My extensive research tells me that Justin Timberlake* slayed, Jay-Z was beyond over it, Jack White was awesomely strange, Taylor Swift mocked the British accent of the lil chicken nugget who just broke up with her, and there was a tribute to MCA at the end. I love Adam Yauch forever and ever and ever so I’m glad he was recognized with a performance by some fellow legends.
What did I miss?
