What a trippy video.
So everyone knows the winners of last night’s Grammys by now but there are a couple of things I still can’t get my head around. Here are some of my (quite random) thoughts about the event:
1: Someone over at the Grammy’s decided that Aretha Franklin deserved a performance in her honour. So when a bunch of these supposedly knowledgeable people sat down (assuming this actually happens when organising the event) to discuss acts to actually perform and pay tribute to *Aretha Franklin* the names Christina Aguilera and Florence & The Machine got spewed out because… they are incredibly soulful artists? Really?
2: Is Train really the band with the best pop song out there? Really? Did Coca-Cola pay them or something? Absolute rubbish. Mind you, they also decided the Glee cast were potential winners.
3: What would the Grammys do if Gaga turned around next year and said, “you know what, I’ve performed at the Grammys, twice. I won a bunch of them (not even as many I should have received) so I’m moving on to the next awards show!” Would they loose all their sponsors and have no ratings? Seriously did anyone mention anything but that damn egg today in the press?
While I didn’t find Gaga’s performance particularly brilliant it was the closest thing at an attempt of doing something new. And God they really kept bringing the whole egg/cocoon thing over and over again… Yes she came in an egg. She’s done far more interesting & controversial things. Let’s move on shall we?
On a bit of a side note, where did those abs come from Gagaloo? Let’s see them again:
And just like that, all the puns we’ve read today about the damn egg are forgiven.
4: Gaga was followed by some Country singer?! What happened to at least trying to keep your viewers awake? It might be worth noting that by the time this aired it must have been around 1.30am and things were going a bit mental in my brain. At one point I thought I heard Miranda Lambert sing: “my favourite dog is buried in the yard”. - Actually I’ve just checked the lyrics and it turns out she does actually let us know this after describing her house, room by room, in a painfully slow song. Cheers again Grammys. Thanks a bunch.
5: Muse did a performance that seemed to belong in one of MTV’s award shows a couple of years ago.
6: Janelle Monae is amazing. It saddens me that whoever was editing the show thought they needed to make a spectacle out of Bruno Mars’ drum playing skills during the entire performance.
7: The little intro to Justin Bieber’s performance was incredibly cheesy. It was nice to see them do something a bit younger but throughout the whole thing I just kept thinking what the hell is Jaden Smith wearing? Look at them, those pants were not designed for a boy were they?
8: Did I mention Gaga? She was the only one who managed to give an acceptance speech that didn’t sound completely generic.
9: Is Cee-Lo trying to tell us something? He tries too hard to make up for his crap voice - Elton-John-like outfit (but no Elton-John-like piano skills), muppets… Then again so does Gwyneth Paltrow…
10: Was Katy Perry using footage of her own wedding as an attempt at adding meaning to a song that probably has none? Desperate much? Teenage Dream was cute though.
11: The huge Grammy Ad during the Grammys was just weird. Why the hell was that guy from Glee doing it? Why was Ezperanza playing in the background?
12: I realised that Barbra Streisand’s identity has been stolen this year. First there was Glee continuously stealing her music and then the massive (and awesome) Duck Sauce single. Turns out she’s not too keen on the Glee bit either.
13: Rihanna keeps giving Drake a hard (hehe) time. Why would you do a song with the guy that went on about how sad he was when it didn’t work out with you? Why make a video with him? Why rub your tush on him during a performance? Rihanna is a mean woman.
14: “The song otherwise known as Forget You” oh aren’t you Americans funny?
15: I can almost understand Lady Antebellum winning so much but, album of the year? Have they picked up Fame Monster?
So there you go a highly biased opinion right there.
Great song featuring Drake, Dirty Money and Diddy…
So Polaroid has Lady Gaga as Creative Director and Kodak has just enlisted Drake, Trey Songz and Pitbull for it’s new marketing campaign. Is this officially another industry succumbing to the power of celebrities?
More importantly, why didn’t Lomography come up with this idea first? They should team up with someone like Florrie… Just saying…
Gotta love them…
