Gabbing About The Grammy’s

LL Cool Grammys

The Grammy’s are coming up, our favorite opportunity to feel out of touch with the zeitgeist/more in touch with what’s cool than our parents. LL Cool J’s hosting this year, which pretty much sums up the Grammy’s: maybe great in the past, now just a CBS procedural star in a bad hat. Who will win a shiny thing? Let’s see:

Record Of The Year

  • “Lonely Boy” – The Black Keys
  • “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” – Kelly Clarkson
  • “We Are Young” – Fun. featuring Janelle Monáe
  • “Somebody That I Used to Know” – Gotye Featuring Kimbra
  • “Thinkin Bout You” – Frank Ocean
  • “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” – Taylor Swift

Funny how Frank Ocean made it into the mainstream here. I don’t mean the sexuality thing, though I guess that’s notable, but a guy who got his start with Odd Future is now a Grammy performer. Also a famous person. I wonder how he thinks of Tyler et. al., if he still finds the rape jokes funny or if he’s too Jay-Z for that now.

I’ll admit I was kind of meh about Nostalgia, Ultra, when it first came, and deleted it from my iTunes fairly quickly. As such, it took me a while to get around to Channel Orange, but it should win a whole bunch of awards.
