Ok, minor rant here...been watching what can only be described as the ultimate in Ego-stroking, megolmaniac over-indulgence in a time of recession, the Grammy awards.
Who the fuck are the Suburbs??? They won 'Album of the Year' over Katy Perry and Lady Gaga? Really?? Never ever heard of them and their performance left me underwhelmed. I bet Eminem was considering pulling a 'Kanye' move as well.
Barbara Streisand making an appearance was certainly great, but you could have kept the Crypt-Keeper Mick Jagger at home hooked up to his Jack Daniels I.V. He was so out of place next to all these new acts, it was like he was on another planet.
I remember a famous interview he did back in the 60's when the Stones first got big and he said "I can't see singing 'Satisfaction' when I'm 40." I think he's going to have to change that to 'oh, 80'.
Kris Kristofferson was so incoherent, you'd think he'd toked a blunt from Willie Nelson's stash before the show.
Katy Perry was fabulous. Rhianna, not so much. And PLEASE, will someone tell Lady Gaga that she doesn't have to turn herself into a live walking crab just for the sake of show business. Plastic egg? Geez.

I don't typically watch award shows - and I didn't see the Grammy's - BUT, I was VERY happy that Muse won for Best Rock Album. I saw video of their performance of "Uprising" and it was fantastic! I love those guys...
I watched it all night but fell asleep during the last hour of it (it happens when you're up at 5 am) so I missed Barbara Streisand, I wanted to see her and Mick Jagger (according to Maya above, it was probably best I fell asleep). LOL! What in the hell was that leather butt outfit Lady GaGa was wearing when she went to accept her grammy?
