Last year, like her husband this year, Beyoncé went into the Grammys as the most-nominated artist on the strength of Lemonade, widely considered to be a masterpiece. The Recording Academy let her win the “urban” category. Album of the Year, the crown category, went to Adele. Beyoncé  has never won album of the year. Full Story

It happened again this year. Lainey and I went back and forth on whether Blue Ivy deserved her own post. We had the same conversation last year. Last year, James Corden had Blue to thank for saving his job and, quite frankly, his career when she swooped in and saved an awkward sketch Full Story

We’ve already established that the Grammys tend to f-ck up the whole giving awards to the right people thing. I don’t need to get into that again. And with the case of SZA and Best New Artist, as much as I do think she deserves it, I’m not mad that Alessia Cara won. We’ve been bigging up Alessia Cara for years on this site Full Story

At Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammys gala on Saturday night. Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx arrived together and actually allowed themselves to be photographed together. Finally. And they actually look comfortable. It wasn’t like that the whole night though. According to Vanity Fair Full Story

The thing that almost angers me the most about Bruno Mars beating out Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar (and even Childish Gambino) for Album of The Year is that it puts me in the position of having to say anything about Bruno Mars other than that he’s a goddamn delight and I enjoy him very much. Bruno Mars is a goddamn delight and I enjoy him very much. Full Story

After winning the Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance, Donald Glover confirmed last night that he will soon retire Childish Gambino. There’s probably one more Childish Gambino project on the way but after that, he’s done with the name. Full Story

The 2018 Grammys were bookended with Kendrick Lamar moments. The show opening was, of course, another jaw-on-the-floor, iconic Kendrick Lamar performance that we’ll be dissecting for decades. The closing moment of the 2018 Grammy Awards will not be remembered as a Kendrick Lamar moment but I will forever remember it as such. Full Story

For Carole from your daughter Christina who misses you so much from across the pond and is sending hugs, kisses, and rainbows. And a video…  I never saw the show the first time around. But, if I’m honest, if I did, back in 1989, I think I would have been into it? We were crimping our hair in those days and teasing it up at the front. Full Story
