That protest that they tried to stage against Beyoncé in response to her Super Bowl performance, remember? It was supposed to happen yesterday at NFL headquarters. Nobody showed up against her. There were more people there who were FOR her though. Meanwhile, on Monday, there was a shooting in Tennessee. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The New Yorker finally published that long-awaited exposé on TMZ yesterday, have you read it yet? The piece confirms what you probably already know if you live online – that many of TMZ’s sources are celebrities themselves, or at least the people who represent them.  Read Full Intro

Producers of the Grammys confirmed last night that the problems with Adele’s audio were on their end. Apparently a mic got dropped when they were positioning the piano and when they tried to go to a backup feed, there was a sound delay. So, no, it’s not on her. Full Story

The Hollywood Vampires made their big network television debut last night at the Grammys, performing a tribute to Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister. The Hollywood Vampires, as you know, consist of several proper rock legends, and Johnny Depp, a rock legend in his own mind who’s ostensibly been hiding his musical talents behind acting because the world wasn’t ready for so much good. Full Story

As Duana just mentioned in the previous post about Hamilton – and yes, Duana, you are right about Hamilton, but does that mean she has to text me, literally, EVERY SINGLE DAY, like, 8 times about it? – the back-to-back Hamilton-Kendrick Lamar pieces last night during the Grammys was glorious evidence that the same stories can be told in different ways and that new stories need to be told in as many ways as possible, despite institutional insistence that these stories be contained in one category, separate and safe, so as not to disrupt the status quo. Full Story

Last night the opening number of Hamilton, “Alexander Hamilton”, was performed live from their home stage at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. If you know Hamilton, you squealed along at seeing it in ‘real life’, instead of just 15-second sound-ups in the 60 Minutes specials, and then checked to see if any new blocks of tickets had been released. Full Story

Katy Perry will not be attending the Grammy Awards tonight. She did, however, host her own pre-Grammys party on Saturday and hopes to make the event an ongoing Grammys tradition, telling the New York Times that she wanted to create an event for the “creators” only – not managers, not publicists, but just the artists. Full Story

It’s going to be a big weekend for Justin Bieber. Remember a few years ago how pissy he and Scooter Braun were about not being nominated for a Grammy? Well, JB’s performing at the Grammys. And he’s nominated for a Grammy. Maybe more. There are so many categories I can’t be bothered to check how many. Full Story

What would you do if you received a thank you note from Beyoncé? This is what happened to Jenna Wortham who writes for the New York Times. I linked to the piece the other day. It was an academic analysis of Beyoncé’s Formation, the day she released the song and the video. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Last Friday, ahead of the Super Bowl, I wrote that I spend a lot of time wondering what Beyoncé is up to. Click here for a refresher. Since Saturday, when she gave us the Formation, I spend even more time wondering what Beyoncé is up to.  Read Full Intro
