Something about all the leather jackets he’s been wearing right? On tour, on SNL, at the Grammys – this one looks almost blue. He looked good. He sounded good. Lorella, who hates him, and I’ll spare her her equivalent here, sent over a note this morning about why he always looks so crusty. Full Story

Holy f-ck this dress. Few could do justice to this dress. My shorty dumpy ass would sh-t all over this dress, a total waste. Gran can. And Gran did. I almost wonder why she didn’t save it for the Oscars. Or maybe she’s planning something much better? See I say this and I jinx it. Last night, it was the best Nicole Kidman’s looked in a long time. Full Story

I mentioned this during the liveblog last night – it’s something Kate Hudson and Gwyneth Paltrow have in common. They always date men on the upswing. Gwyneth of course had Brad, Ben, and Chris Martin just as Coldplay was soaring. Kate married Chris Robinson at the height of the Black Crows popularity, was with ARod for a World Series, and is now having a baby with Muse’s Matt Bellamy who just won a Grammy. Full Story

Grammy Bald: Rihanna

Well she must have been under there, non? Trust me, I was looking, I was examining. And I don’t even think that’s a pervy thing to say. A dress like that only invites it. And that kind of, um, scrutiny only spawns other discussions, which is how Sasha and I, during the liveblog, started talking about Ri’s asshole. Full Story

Grammy BFFs: Gwyneth & Beyonce

They held hands backstage while greeting Seth Rogen. Then, after G changed, they went out to their seats and watched the rest of the show together. What? But who else is good enough to offer support and bff-ness to Gwyneth Paltrow but Beyonce? You don’t get more royal, musically, than Beyonce. You know, my G doesn’t roll with just anyone. Full Story

Grammy Worst: John Mayer

This is Johnny Depp’s cue to stop looking so bedraggled and bloated. Because when people see John Mayer and call it a comparison, it’s never, never a compliment. As so many of you have emailed to say – John Mayer last night was channelling Johnny Depp. Miserably. Like he spends a lot of time in bed, eating crisps and writing in his journal, masturbating to Nancy Grace, working on his poetry… It’s pitiful. Full Story

Grammy Best Dressed Part 1: Florence Welch

Lainey Posted by Lainey

I haven’t talked to Sasha today yet because she’s busy producing the etalk Grammy fashion special but if I had to guess, she’d probably be naming Florence Welch as her Best Dressed at the Grammys. Sasha, as you know from her style column, is all about kaftans and hippies and gypsy wisps. Full Story

Grammy Anorexic BitchFace: LeAnn Rimes

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Staying skinny won’t make him stay. But you will learn that the hard way. LeAnn Rimes doesn’t go anywhere these days without fiancé Eddie Cibrian. He doesn’t want to miss a moment out there either. After all, that’s why he upgraded right? And that’s why he’ll always be looking to climb. Full Story

Grammy Wedding Album: Katy Perry & Russell Brand

What did you think of that? The wedding video/photos playing behind her during her performance? I didn’t mind that so much. I mean, I think it’s worse that she can’t sing live. And I was more offended that she stole Mimi’s swing. Only Mimi should be able to tacky swing in front of live audience, ok? I will say though that I love Teenage Dream. Full Story

Grammy ThinFace: Jennifer Hudson

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Jennifer Hudson has lost something like 80 pounds. She looks great. Which, sometimes I hate saying because, like in the example of Kelly Osbourne, somehow it feels like an invalidation of the size that came before. Having said that, Hudson is not Osbourne. She was very successful before Weight Watchers, she’ll continue to be successful beyond it. Full Story

Grammy Sh-t vs Diarrhoea: Miley vs Xtina

February 14, 2011 06:26:03 Posted at February 14, 2011 06:26:03
Lainey Posted by Lainey

Sasha posed this question during the liveblog. My answer was that at gunpoint, I’d take Miley. That’s the point of sh-t vs Diarrhoea – it’s supposed to be hard. I know Miley doesn’t look so tragic here in photos, and you have to remember, the photo agencies generally don’t post too many of the bad ones on these occasions, but during the pre-show with Seacrest, she was working a significant bloat. Full Story

Grammy Parents: Will & Jada Pinkett Smith

Come on, they were super cute cheering on their son Jaden while he was performing with Justin Bieber, right? Look, I have some problems with the Sci and the Smiths too, but right there, I don’t know that you can criticise parents who are just really, really excited to see their kid up there doing his thing. Full Story

Best Grammy Abs: Lady Gaga

February 14, 2011 05:54:35 Posted at February 14, 2011 05:54:35
Lainey Posted by Lainey

She leans out when she’s touring/rehearsing. And it’s all that hot yoga. But goddamn I want those abs. Maybe after this f-cking cleanse I can start working on them. So you know she arrived as an embryo. It’s a little obvious, obviously, but then again Gaga has never been known for subtlety. Full Story
