What an awful dress.  Really, with everything available to you, you choose this?  What does this say about what you want to do with your Grammy night?  Katy Perry never chooses a dress by accident so she must want this to do something.  Some sort of Betty Draper In Repose type thing, with the bouffant?  I don’t know. Full Story

Amazingly enough, I didn’t hate Country Bitch’s tricked out white dress she wore for the carpet. Comparatively, that is. From her, we’ve seen a lot worse. And it was better than the dark brown green, again bedazzled, situation she put on to perform with Tony Bennett. That...was not my favourite mash-up. Full Story

She looks quite good in a high collar, doesn’t she? But I didn’t love this Zuhair Murad dress. To me it was a cheap imitation of Alexander McQueen. Like McQueen for Stars On Ice. Still, she has a lovely neck. And when her hair is swept back, right off her face, as it was on the carpet, it’s a strong styling move. Full Story

A Pope & A Cape

Full disclosure: I love a good cape. If only we could always walk around making entrances and exits with capes, I feel like we might all be more creative. That said, I hate that this red cape, customed by Donatella Versace for Nicki Minaj, may have been inspired by a really sh-tty movie starring Amanda Seyfried. Full Story

I liked the Grammy set.  I should have said that.   Did you freak out when they didn’t include Etta James in the In Memoriam package?  A lot of people did.  I assumed that this performance off the top -- one that I bet was in place before all the other events of this weekend -- was supposed to cover that off. Full Story

Lady Gaga sits

With her sceptre.It takes a certain dedication to be comfortable being uncomfortable. And for over three hours. I often think this of Victoria Beckham and her heels. How she suffers for her image. Same goes for Lady Gaga last night, crammed into that seat. With no reason, not one, to get up. That’s my way of saying she lost in every category. Full Story

Aside from a few moments here and there - thank you Adele - the Grammy Awards last night, they ...um... lacked something, right? For starters, several musicians performed twice. As Sarah noted during our liveblog, how is it that the Recording Academy can’t find enough artists to fill the show? And, well, if you can’t. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Welcome to Grammys Liveblog. There was supposed to be an exclamation point at the end of that sentence but, well, you know.

Duana, Sarah, Sasha, and I will be here for the next four hours as music celebrates the year that was and mourns one of the greatest artists ever.

Please come back tomorrow for a proper recap with style highlights in addition to coverage from the BAFTAs and all the other gossip from the weekend.

We really do need some Blue Ivy Carter right now. And I'm not even joking about that.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
