Beyonce Shook Her Thang & Willie Nelson Got Baked at the Grammys
Last night’s Grammys were an exercise in bad music and even worse fashion. There were some cool musical acts (half of The Beatles! a stoned Willie Nelson!), but the music being honored was, of course, a let down. Beyonce opened by flashing her booty in a Flashdance-esque rendition of “Drunk in Love.” (DListed)
In 2009, Trent Reznor famously stated, “F*ck the Grammys.” Nonetheless, he showed up last night to join Queens of the Stone Age for the big finale. Then CBS cut the supergroup performance short to go to commercial break. It’s safe to say that the Rez is not happy. (Uproxx)
Madonna actually dressed tastefully last night in a Ralph Lauren suit. She was styled by her 8-year-old son, David Banda, who came with mom for the ride. The only thing ruining the effect? A 52-year-old white woman wearing a grill. (Go Fug Yourself)
Katy Perry wore a very pretty Valentino gown. She violated the dress code last year by flashing most of her girls, so she went with a sheer skirt this time instead. Katy also tried to go full goth last night during her “Dark Horse” performance. (Celebitchy)
Taylor Swift worked a stunning “chain mail” Gucci gown. She also danced in the Grammys audience and then sang a song about some poor dude that treated her wrong. Jake Gyllenhaal? Harry Styles? John Mayer? Your guess is as good as mine. (Lainey)
Ozzy Osbourne made a fool out himself last night while introducing Ringo Starr because no one could understand what the hell was coming out of Ozzy’s mouth. Ozzy also grabbed his crotch while posing next to Ringo on the red carpet. How rock ‘n’ roll. (The Blemish)
Truly, the highlight of the Grammys was watching Yoko Ono shimmy to Daft Punk’s performance of “Get Lucky.” The only thing better than Yoko getting down was watching
Julian Sean Lennon try to cloak himself as the invisible man. (Us)
Moving away from the Grammys: There’s a new “Netflix of pr0n” called Skweezme, which will hopefully get people to pay for pr0n again. Think of the production line, people! (WG)
Aaron Paul stars as a suicidal writer in this trailer for A Long Way Down, which adapts yet another Nick Hornby novel. (Slashfilm)
Mamas, don’t let your toddlers dance on tables. It might be cute, but it’s highly dangerous. Plus, you know …. table dancing. (Videogum)
Two insane beekeepers held a bee-bearding contest. They wore nothing but goggles and shorts and let themselves be covered in thousands of bees. This is some serious, Nicolas Cage-grade sh-t. (Mental Floss)
“Writing truly original fantasy is, in a way, like trying to make a reggae record that doesn’t rip off Bob Marley: the degree of difficulty is high, " says Incandenza in her thoughtful review of The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. It’s also difficult to write an original review of a book that so many Cannonballers have lovingly reviewed, but Incandenza succeeds, in spades. (Cannonball Read 6)
Wil Wheaton and Felicia Day are teaming up to motivate all geeks for the next International TableTop Day. I doubt they’ll run into any obstacles. (The Mary Sue)
There are only ten simple steps to making a superhero movie. Plus millions of dollars and some zoom-zoom sound effects. Good luck. (Unreality)
Someone mocked up a 3-D action figure of Sad Keanu, and it’s turned into a Photoshop meme of epic proportions. (Kotaku)
Oh … this must be watched. The Grammys included a mass wedding of 33 same-sex couples during Macklemore’s performance of “Same Love.” Queen Latifah officiated, and Madonna was there too. Ignore Madge. This is some good sh-t.
