I saw the grammys last night and thought it was awesome and because of the amount of female artist dueling it out for supremcy thisgrammy was officially the Battle of the Divas.

Lady Gaga and Elton John’s opener did not disappoint.  It came complete with a fame factory, monsters, and a sacrifce.  Gaga was sent straight to the flames.  Wish Gaga won a grammy on air and not just the two she won before, but I’m not complaining.  She did win more than one grammy and some awesome artists have never won any like Diana Ross who never won any despite being nominated for 12.

Beyonce was awesome as ever.  She’s in a league of her own.  5 Grammy wins, 2 years in a row.  I think she’s the only female artist so far to accomplish that.  It must have been weird for her to watch Jayz accept that award with Rihanna and her (B’s) nephew. I wish Rihanna had been able to perform that would have been nice.

So glad Kanye wasn’t there.   Didn’t get to yell at Taylor Swift as she cleaned up awards, not as much as Beyonce, but still.  She got album of the year.  I knew she would, but I’m still mad.  Just because she’s cute and had Kanye do something horrid.  I think it should have gone to Gaga or Beyonce.  I did like seeing Taylor perform with Stevie Nicks.

                                                                                  

There was mad pairing going on at the Grammys.  Lady Gaga and Elton John, Taylor Switft and Stevie Nicks, and Roberta Flack and Maxwell.  I haven’t seen or heard about Roberta in like forever where’d they find her? I know she’s older now, but boy did she look stiff, like she couldn’t bend her neck.  It looked kind of uncomfortable.

I guess because I don’t listen to country I didn’t realize the Zac Brown Band was such a big deal.  I was hoping for Keri Hilson or MGMT or even the Ting Tings.  Granted MGMT and the Tings Tings havent’ gotten the air time of either the Zac Brown Band or Keri Hilson. 

       

The Michael Jackson tribute was good but sometimes all the voices didn’t harmonize or something.  Sometimes Usher sounded off.  And two American Idol ex-contestants (I would say winners, but Jennifer Hudson didn’t winner although she was definitely good enough to) out of like five people.  American Idol must be proud.   I love Earth song, but I kind of wonder how it was chosen.  It was like they wanted to do We are the World, but couldn’t get the rights (Maybe because the song is being redone).  And I wished I had those 3-D glasses.  I kind of forgot to get some before the big snow storm came in and by then it was too late.  I wasn’t going out into the snow.   

Pink’s performance was stunning.  I still can’t figure out how she can do those acrobatics and sing. I think I just starred in awe.  Especially because of the song choice too and I know I wasn’t the only one starring.  Black eyed peas did well too and I liked Lady Antebellum’s song.  And Bon Jovi of course.

The rap it the end although good sucked bad because they cussed so much half the song was edited.  So I couldn’t hear much of it.

Overall I enjoyed the Grammy’s.  How about you?  Who would you like to have seen win Grammy’s?

Kanye’s Incident

September 16, 2009 at 4:46 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , )

I don’t think Kanye West would have jumped up on the stage if anyone else had won, except maybe Kelly Clarkson.  I mean obviously if Beyonce won best female video he wouldn’t have had anything to say (at that time).  I’m sure he would have jumped up some other time seeing that he was not there to see himself lose in the categories that he had been nominated for.  And if Pink won, well she was she had a brass knuckle purse or something and she has an aura of toughness so he would have had to think twice about that.  As for Lady Gaga, she’s going on tour with him soon.  That would have been really awkward.  Not to mention she did look like the phantom of the opera at the time. 

As Katy Perry said on her twitter Kanye stepped on a kitten.  Taylor so cute and innocent.  She didn’t know what to think when he had jumped on stage.  It was her first vma and he chose to jump up and say that during her time.  I wonder if he would have bothered Katy though and what would have happened if he had.

Crazy VMAs

September 16, 2009 at 4:38 am (music) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I think that this was officially the craziest VMA show ever.  I never remember it being exciting at all.  Usually they hype it up and everyone gets let down.  Let when they were saying Britney Spears was making a comeback, but it was still too early for her.  I was glad when she did make a comeback though.

This year had the MJ tribute which was supposed to be the highlight of the show but I don’t think it was.  It had Madonna’s speech which was good if a bit redundant. MJ was a king and human.  MJ was like her except without a childhood and didn’t get the chance to made mistakes.  And she did not look like herself for some reason.  I almost didn’t recognize her.  I had to do a double take on Madonna whose image is known the world over.  The music and dancing was good.  I was kind of mad Janet only stayed out for a part of scream but she was good.  I wished everyone had gotten up and done thriller, but that’s just a dream.

And then there was the whole Kanye thing.  Kanye drinking on the red carpet and passing the booze around.  And then taking the mic from Taylor Swift.  I saw him on Jay Leno the other night and I seriously think the man’s got a problem and its not just his ego or inability to keep his opinions to himself.  He needs some help.

Kanye was not the only one to jump on stage uninvited.  Lil’ Mama did too.  Remember seeing her with Jay Z and Alicia Keys?  Not supposed to be there and she seriously pissed off Jay Z.

Pink’s performance was awesome.  I couldn’t believe those acrobatics.  And was she really singing? How the heck.

And Lady Gaga’s so Crazy! I love it.  She went on a date with Kermit the frog (although not too long ago she was wearing a jacket that looked like dead Kermits).  Her outfits were kind of scary too. I was like Beyonce get out of there now. But that could just be that I think masquerade masks are scary and Lady gaga was looking like the Phantom of the Opera behind her.  Her Paparazzi performance was terrifying.  It was like watching a 50s B horror movie with her dying at the end. Although it did look like Carrie too.  Do you think she over did it with the blood at the end and hanging by her arm?  Then there was her red lace outfit which I thought was because she had “died.”  I thought she looked like a dead red queen or king (I was thinking king when I first saw it for some reason) walking around. Her acceptance speech was funny.  She actually handed back the moon man to take off the head veil. And Perez looked like a rooster when he jumped up congratulating her.  Then there was what looked like bird nest outfit with the collar and leash.  And then there are rumours that Lady Gaga wanted to have lions at the VMAs.  Lions? Someone would have been eaten.  That would not have worked well.

Then there was Beyonce, the wonderful Beyonce.  I was so glad that as the winner of best video she gave Taylor the time to give her speech.

And there were more wonderful performers Muse and Green Day. 

What do you think about this year’s VMAs? I think everyone was trying to out do everyone else.  At least that made it really interesting.
