Bieber got nuthin’, so here’s sumfin’

Monday, February 14th, 2011

Cheer up, bub. You're rich.

Grammys are held purely to confuse the Nostradamuses (Nostradami?) of the world. Period.

Sure, Grammys were handed out like candies, but that’s nothing new.

It was the small things that made it worth following. The headline I laughed at the most was this one: ‘Bieber goes home empty-handed from Grammys’

I don’t know why, but I could just imagine him tearing up, wiping his face and just asking “Why?”

Considering the hype that boy had, I’m kind of glad he got a reality check.

That said, I’m also glad that indie group Arcade Fire scooped up ‘Album of the Year’ for ‘The Suburbs‘, beating Eminem, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga (the woman who arrived at the Grammys in an egg).

The sub-titled song always gets me in a good mood. And I figured Justin Bieber would need a bit of cheering up.

Lately I’ve been listening to a few albums that always lightens my day. So Biebs…this is for you, baby. Baby. Baby. Oh…

Doogs’ ‘Cheer Me Up’ albums for Biebs

1. Eagles of Death Metal – Death by Sexy
2. Beck – The Information
3. Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros – Up from Below

Listen to these, and you’ll realise life’s pretty great. :)

Is it worth a gram of our time?

Gaga, meet Glueglue

The Grammies were on yesterday. And do you know what was on Lady Gaga?

The results of a kindergarten Arts and Crafts class.

Of course she was going to wear something ridiculous. What’d you expect, a lovely red dress with straight hair and a smile?

It’s with this knowledge that her fashion statements were meant to be looked at, I’ve decided to go one step further and sum up on what happened at the Grammies, like every other one in existence:

Some ‘artists’ got a golden gramophone and thanked various people.

The brilliant satirist Stephen Colbert, who hosted the award show, also won a Grammy for his Christmas comedy CD, and had to thank Jesus “for having such a great birthday”. It makes sense to thank him for that.

Lady Whawha?

He also said after winning his Grammy, Colbert suggested more collaborations than Lady Gaga / Elton John, Taylor Swift / Stevie Nicks, and what he labelled the ‘Pink Eyed Black Eyed Peas’:

* Megadethcab for Cutie
* The Yeah Ting Yeah Ting Yeahs

What about Snoop Bow Wow Dogg?

Maybe I’m just not the demographic they were aiming for…? Maybe I’m still jealous I didn’t win a gramophone I can’t use.

Any winners you think didn’t deserve the award, or any that should have at least been nominated?
