It certainly doesn't seem to. Winning a Grammy used to be a symbol of talent, respect, and musical/critical acclaim - it was a dream sought after amongst every musician, from every genre. Nowadays however, if a musician sells millions of songs on iTunes, who the hell needs a Grammy? People don't even seemingly care who wins anymore, and generally just watch the award show to see who wears the more outlandish bullsh*t outfit. What did we get this year? A few interesting performances, and Lady Gaga in a f*cking demon egg. Let's talk about a couple of the performances, as I don't care about the winners. Here were my two personal favorites:
Cee Lo Green (The Midget Pimp) and Gwyneth Paltrow (fucking really?) - Forget You
I actually liked this performance. Cee Lo is a talented, albeit absolutely silly physically looking artist. I'm down with the gay peacock deal, do your thang Mr. Green. I also love muppets, as I and most of America was raised on them. The pug dog doing the Dirty Dancing routine next to the piano was particularly amusing. With that being said, the fuck is Paltrow doing there? This I certainly did not understand. She can't even sing well, and she has no ass to boot. What the f*ck was Cee Lo thinking? He must be trying to hit it. All I'm saying is that if she keeps ruining his songs like this, one day her head may end up in a box, Se7en style.
Eminem, Skylar Grey, and Dr. Dre - I Need A Doctor
This performance was interesting as well. Eminem is vibrant as usual, making every fan's panties wet within a 2 mile radius, so there's not much else to be said there. Skylar Grey is a name that's not very well known in music yet, but I'm willing to be that it will be. Formerly known as Holly Brook, she used to write lesbian, pro-Lilith Fair style coffee house music. Within the last couple of years, she changed her stage name, sold out, and started writing popular hooks for rappers and R&B singers. Thank you for making the change baby, the hooks on the songs you've written are absolutely amazing. She came into the spotlight briefly with "Where Did You Go" by Fort Minor, and has since written for Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, Dirty Money, and others. Chick is going to be huge in 2011, and I wish her all the best (partially because I really want to have s3x with her).
Lady Gaga shows up with slaves in an egg
Title says it all. It's Lady Gaga in a f*cking dinosaur-lucifer egg being carried by slaves. I bet that black guy in the back is pissed off at his agent. I'm not going to review her performance, f*ck her. She gets enough attention as it is.
