The Grammys Edition

With everything that’s been going on in the “real” news, it’s nice to talk only about entertainment for once. This will be short and sweet.

Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: The Grammys for being an absolute snoozefest

I don’t know what’s been going on with the Grammys, but they have become progressively more boring over the years. Even though we had Katy Perry, Beyonce, and Metallica all in the same room, I was still feeling underwhelmed by the end. Not to mention, I’m pretty sure my friend turned the channel at one point to watch Homeland instead….

With that said, I have to give Bruno Mars a serious shoutout. He destroyed both of his performances last night.

Bruno first sang his single “That’s What I Like,” showing that music doesn’t have to be super upbeat to be electric. With the help of his manband, Bruno stole the show with a lot of smooth moves and harmonies. #suchapro

p.s. Bruno Mars and The Time gave us the best Prince tribute to date. After a horrible botching of “Nothing Compares To You” by Madonna and a much too loud “Purple Rain” by Jennifer Hudson (unpopular opinion, I know), Prince finally got the tribute he deserved last night. It was fun, funky, and full of life. Not to mention, Bruno’s purple suit was on point as well as his eyeliner. 😉

Hot Mess #2: Whoever didn’t vote for Lemonade?

Although the Grammys were a complete bore, I did continue to watch for the sole purpose of seeing whether or not Beyonce would take home the most coveted prizes of the night, Record of the Year and Album of the Year.

When Adele “shocked” everyone and won both awards, I was honestly not that surprised. This year, it seemed like every artist from Justin Bieber to Rihanna decided to release their best bodies of work to give Beyonce a real run for her money. Not to mention, there was also tremendous hype around Adele’s album, 25, as well.

Now, I know that some believe Lemonade to be the only rightful winner of the evening. However, I personally think that Beyonce losing Album of the Year in 2015 was a much bigger upset than last night. At least yesterday, an album won that people actually listened to (no shade to Beck)….

And, for those of you crying racism, please just stop. I don’t think Beyonce’s loss has anything to do with racism. I agree with several critics who believe her loss to be a direct result of the splitting of votes. If you put Beyonce, Justin Bieber, and Drake in the same category, then eventually their votes are going to start canceling one another out. It is what it is.

Grammys 2017: Why Adele beat Beyoncé for Album of the Year

p.s. Even though I don’t necessarily believe the Grammys to be racist, I do think that they have a little diversity issue on their hands. Perhaps the Recording Academy is a little too traditionalist (a nice word for white and old) for the times.

Anyways, a huge congratulations to Adele. After a rough performance paying tribute to George Michaels, she was able to end her evening with a gracious win.

Adele’s Full Acceptance Speech

Side note: I love the way Adele made her entire acceptance speech about Beyonce and her love for Lemonade. It shows the importance of artists supporting one another and showing respect to their peers.

Side note #2: We need to talk about Keith Urban. I know he wasn’t nominated for major awards last night, but he should’ve been.

If you haven’t listened to Ripcord, I strongly encourage you to do so. Ripcord was really my Album of the Year. It snuck up on me during a random iTunes search and I immediately fell in love. Such a good example of just how much good music is out there right now…

#LooooveIt

Also, random shoutout to Rihanna and her flask last night. Homegirl knew that she wasn’t going to win anything, so she came to just enjoy the party.

Only Rihanna…haha

Why Can’t We All Be Fantastic???

Okay, I’m back and let’s hope that I can keep up this new run much longer than the last. Time to get it!

1) Comic fans for not learning their lesson.

People-Michael B Jordan

Last week, it was announced that Fruitvale Station’s Michael B. Jordan would play the Human Torch in the new Fantastic 4 movie. After the announcement, a few fans were upset, arguing that having a black Human Torch would stray too far from the comics.

Fanatstic-Four

Although I understand where these “comic-book purists” are coming from, I can’t fully support their argument. Hollywood has always played around with comic book characters, and as long as the writers/directors explain how a black Human Torch could be related to a white Invisible Woman, we have absolutely nothing to worry about. Not to mention, the last Fantastic 4 movies had a more “accurate” casting and were still garbage…Therefore, congrats to Michael B. Jordan on the role. I’m sure he’ll knock it out of the park and shut everyone up for a long time to come.

2) Justin Bieber for being an absolute train wreck.

With all of the news that’s out about him, Justin Bieber has become one of the biggest train wrecks since Lindsay Lohan…

I used to really root for him, but then I realized that I don’t care about him as much as I did Lindsay. With that said, it would be tragic for another talented star to fall from the Hollywood skies.

p.s. If anyone still cares about Bieber’s music, feel free to listen to his new song here  —> Justin Bieber’s Broken

3) Teen Mom stars for just being absolute messes.

Over the weekend, I got caught up on the young parents from Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2. Sometimes when I watch these shows and their specials, I am actually proud of the young parents and everything that they have accomplished since having children in high school. However, there have always been a few less than stellar seeds (i.e. Farrah Abraham, Jenelle Evans, and Adam Lind) on the shows. See below –

Farrah Abraham

farrah-abraham-street-style-out-fo-shopping-january-2014_1

While on Teen Mom, Farrah, though annoying a lot of the time, seemed to be a really good mother. Even today, she’s managed to capitalize on the success of the show and buy a gorgeous house for her and her daughter. Unfortunately, it’s Farrah’s sex tape and narcissistic attitude that put her on this list.

Jenelle Evans

jenelle-evans-on-mtv

Jenelle Evans has always been a mess, and it’s pretty hard for any Teen Mom 2 fan to root for her. After being arrested multiple times for drug possession (Jenelle is a recovering heroine user), one would think that this mom would start focusing a little bit more on just herself. Instead, Jenelle has decided to have another baby with her new boyfriend…

Read all about Jenelle’s decision here – Jenelle Evans Pregnant

For those of you who don’t know, Jenelle has never had much luck with men. Several of her boyfriends have been arrested and have abused drugs…

Adam Lind

Like Jenelle, Adam has always been a hot mess. He continues to stay in the news for his misbehaviors.

Luckily, it sounds like everyone will be okay. What an absolute mess…

From Bieber To The Grammys

Just when I thought things were getting better in the entertainment industry, Bieber and the Grammys happened….Let’s get it!

1) Justin Bieber for getting arrested.

Image

Last week, Bieber finally got arrested on suspicion of drag racing and driving under the influence in Miami. Bieber is clearly out of control, and I am very grateful for his arrest. However, all of this talk about the potential deportation of the Canadian singer is making me sad. Can’t we just give him probation, throw him into rehab, and wish for the best until he messes up again???

ImageBTWs…While I’m blogging about Bieber, he’s enjoying some Panamanian sun with his new boo, Chantel Jeffries. Must be nice to just jet off after being arrested…

2) Apollo Nida for being an idiot.

1390679551_phaedra-parks-apollo-nida-bank-fraud_1

Nida, the husband of Phaedra Parks on Real Housewives of Atlanta, has been charged with identity theft.

Read the full story on TMZ here –> Apollo Nida Charged With Massive Identity Theft

I just don’t understand how someone could be SO dumb. If you watch Housewives of Atlanta, Nida has never seemed like the brightest star in the sky, but to have him do this is just a mess. As much as I don’t want this to be true (Apollo has two young sons), I don’t think there’s much of a future for the reality star…

3) Bow Wow for being the subject of rumors.

Bow+Wow

Several days ago, rumor had it that rapper Bow Wow had been fired from BET’s 106 & Park for charging thousands of dollars in child support to a company card.

Read the full story on E! News  —> Bow Wow Has Not Been Fired From 106 and Park

As much as I wanted this rumor to be true for my own personal enjoyment (yes, I know I’m mean), it’s not. What is true, however, is that Bow Wow has had financial problems and is working as a BET host to rebuild his net worth.

After all of his success,  how is he only worth 300K?…A mess.

4) The Grammys for just being a mess.

56th GRAMMY Awards - Show

Am I the only one that was underwhelmed by last night’s Grammys? With the exception of a couple performances (i.e. Beyonce and Kendrick Lamar with Imagine Dragons) and some amazing red carpet looks (i.e. Colbie Caillat and Madonna), I didn’t really care for the awards show. In fact, the show has left me with a number of unanswered questions…

1) How did Robin Thicke not win a single Grammy for Blurred Lines?

2) How did Alicia Keys win a Grammy for anything?

3) How did Macklemore and Ryan Lewis beat out Kendrick Lamar in every rap category?

4) Who is Snarky Puppy?

5) Why was Katy Perry even nominated?

Sigh…I could go on forever, but I won’t because I know that in a few weeks the Oscars will confuse me just as much….

p.s. I know that Ciara made this list last week for her baby mama status, but the girl looks good!

56th GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet

When I’m pregnant, I hope that I can look just as stunning. 🙂

Sighs All Around

After having such a long and fabulous weekend, I wanted nothing more than to return to you all with a good Hot Mess list. Let’s get it!

1) Justin Bieber for being completely out of control.

Image

Bieber was recently accused of throwing eggs at his neighbor’s house, which has resulted in police searching his Calabasas mansion and finding a number of drugs. Although Bieber has yet to be arrested for anything, reports are saying that the Canadian singer could be deported.

Sigh…why do all of the Hollywood child stars go crazy? I love Bieber and all, but if he’s going around vandalizing property, then maybe he needs to get deported. Not to mention, he’s already made his money, and his career will probably start going downhill anyways…

2) Ciara for being pregnant.

Image

WHY are people not more concerned about Ciara’s pregnancy?? I don’t care if she is irrelevant as a singer, she’s still way too good to be pregnant by Future.

ImageNo offense, but there is nothing hot about being a B-list rapper’s fourth baby mama. Also, last time I checked, Future’s net worth wasn’t that much…

At least Ciara still looks cute?

p.s. I also don’t understand getting pregnant before getting married unless you are just DESPERATE for a baby. Ladies, let’s try walking down the aisle first in 2014. 😉

3) Richard Sherman’s HATERS for hating.

richard-sherman-erin-andrews

Last night, the Seattle Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers to advance to the Super Bowl. Even though I was personally very excited about the Seahawk’s win (I can’t stand the Niners…), a number of Americans were outraged by Seahawk Richard Sherman’s passionate interview  with Erin Andrews after the game.

Read the full story here —> Richard Sherman Goes On Postgame Rant

If you ask me, there was nothing offensive about Sherman’s interview. As many have pointed out, he did not use any profanity or racial slurs unlike his critics on Twitter. Yes, he probably could’ve been a lot calmer during the interview, but he’s a passionate player who just won one of the biggest games of his football career. Give the guy a break.

Side note: Richard Sherman’s interview gives Americans another wakeup call when it comes to race relations and double standards in this country. As soon as Sherman was done the interview, he was called the N-word across social media.

Dumb People Say, Stupid Racist [Things] About Richard Sherman

I don’t care if you absolutely despise Sherman. It is never okay to call anyone outside of their name. Not to mention, if Sherman was a white man (yes, I said it), we probably wouldn’t be having another conversation about racism in America. I mean, Jim Harbaugh throws a temper tantrum on the sidelines ALL of the time and no one seems to be shouting racial slurs his way. Grow up, America. Please.

Also, in case you missed it, you can find Sherman in the new Beats by Dre headphones commercial.

When all is said and done, Sherman is definitely going to have the last laugh.

And with that…

HAPPY MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY! 🙂
