Though the above headline seems like awesome joke in the making, it happens to be the question on everyone’s mind after this photo of the two began circulating the Internet:
As “Rumour Has It” (too easy), the Brit singer yelled at a bitter Chris Brown for not standing up while Frank Ocean was accepting the award for Best Urban Contemporary Album of the Year at the Grammys Awards Sunday night.
While we would love to have listened on an Adele vocal beatdown, Adele cleared up that rumor as she tweeted, “Chris Brown and I were complimenting each other in that photo actually!”
Which totally makes sense because if Adele had yelled at Chris Brown, then we wouldn’t have gotten this head-scratcher of a photo:
So there you have it, Team Breezy. No need to send Adele any hate.
Lady Gaga, the girl who talks candidly to the media while wearing dresses made of furry stuffed animals and smelly raw meat, has decided to enter a self-imposed exile. The “Paparazzi” singer granted her final interview (for now, at least) to goddess Oprah.
The Last Interview was shot for a two-hour episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter” in the singer’s childhood home. It also includes her mother Cynthia Germanotta, who admits she and her husband thought their daughter had a screw loose.
Gaga also said: “Other than this interview, Oprah, I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time. … No press, no television, if my mom calls and says, ‘Did you hear about…’ I shut it all off.”
Just because Lady Gaga is taking a vow of silence, it doesn’t mean things will change. I mean the singer didn’t say a word a couple years ago when she was carried down the Grammy red carpet in an egg but she managed to make an impression. Still, maybe she’ll have some sort of existential epiphany to serve as a musical inspiration.
Will Smith let it slip to a Brazilian website that there will be a couple celebrity cameos in the third installment of Men in Black III and Lady Gaga will be one of the ‘surprises.’
“We have a couple of celebrity cameos, but I think I cannot reveal who they are,” Smith told the website. “We must keep as a surprise that Lady Gaga appears.”
We’re not sure what character Lady Gaga will play but she’d certainly make an amiable alien, considering some of the costumes we’ve seen her rock. I’ve taken the liberty of going one step further to help the film’s costume design team by compiling a photo anthology to inspire them, with quick character profiles.
1) This Kermit the Frog-inspired look, created by Jean Charles de Castelbajac, would be the perfect look for Oeshu, the slimy but fun loving green alien. It’s the PG, family friendly option of the bunch.
2) Gaga was clearly going for a Queen of Hearts look with this sheer red dress from Alexander McQueen. It’s ideal for an ambitious queen trying to save her homeland.
3) I have Men in Black covered if they’re going for an eerie, sci fi incubation scene in which Lady Gaga emerges from her shell. Gaga arrived in this giant egg at the Grammys. It’s styled by Nicola Formichetti.
4) Perfect for the evil alien seductress. The meat dress, designed by Franc Fernandez, is made of local meat from a Los Angeles butcher shot. The presumed smell of the dress would be ideal for method actors but preservation might be costly.

At the “California casual” Independent Spirit Awards — or as it’s better known, the cheap award show before the Oscars — Seth Rogen poked fun at Chris Brown.
Among jokes about Martha Marcy May Marlene and Drive, he burned Brett Ratner for being fired as producer of the Oscars. Ratner was recently fired for using the word “fag” during a Q&A session for his film Tower Heist. “You say a few hateful things, they don’t let you within a few hundred yards of the Oscars,” said Rogen. Then he recommended Ratner look to the Grammys because you can “beat the shit out of a nominee and they ask you to perform twice at the Grammys.”
Ouch! You know the world isn’t ready to forgive you when the entire entertainment industry is making fun of you — not just musically minded shows but movie award shows too. Although one nameless woman isn’t too happy about the joke, most of the audience erupted in laughter.
Brown continues to make headlines — whether it’s for award disses or his remix with Rihanna — but I’m sick of hearing about him. It kind of seems like we’re just validating his behaviour at this point by giving him more attention. But still, you have to admit Seth Rogen was funny! Oh, and if you want to fast-forward to the joke, it’s around 5:22.
There are even more reasons to dislike Chris Brown today.
First we heard a story about an alleged pick up line he used at the Grammy gift lounge. I’m a little skeptical about this one because I just don’t see how he could make a joke about something so serious. A woman claims he came up to her and said:”Can I get your number? I promise I won’t beat you!” Then one of his friends yelled “That’s his new line!”
Brown’s mom, Joyce Hawkins, is also starting to get nauseous from her son’s behaviour. During the Sunday awards show either he or someone who was running his Twitter account wrote: “HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now! That’s the ultimate F**K OFF!”
Radar Online is exclusively reporting that gis mom, who has stood by him in the past, doesn’t understand how the tweet was published in the first place. It’s not uncommon for celebs to have an assistant run their Twitter feed but still!
People keep pushing Lil’ Kim to say something — anything — bad about Nick Minaj. On an appearance of “Watch What Happens Live” with Andy Cohen, the rapper admitted a few things about the “Super Bass” singer, with whom she has an ongoing feud.
First she said she didn’t know who Minaj is, then she said her controversial Grammy performance just “slipped past me.” Then she responded to Minaj’s new song “Stupid Hoe,” which is speculated to be a direct insult at Lil’ Kim after her track “Black Friday” poked fun at the singer last year.
Lil’ Kim said about the song: “If you have to make a song called stupid hoe, you must be a stupid hoe.” Ouch!
The Grammys are known for outlandish “I can’t believe you went there fashions” and this year was no disappointment. These head-scratchers are among the best-worst fashions of the night, though their artistic message is up to you.
1) Sasha Gradiva wore a weapon-sleeve with her pink strapless dress. On Twitter, she said the look was meant to remind people to stand up for world peace and use weapons for artistic purposes only — ie her dress.
2) Nicki Minaj was escorted to the Grammys by a Pope impostor and dressed as a Cardinal-esque Little Red Riding Hood. Clearly, the Versace outfit was the only fitting option to prepare us for her later exorcism, which was successfully completed during her performance of “Roman Holiday.” What else would she wear for the occasion? Read more…
Next to his gigantic, toothless, black mouse helmet, Deadmau5′s plain black T-shirt didn’t get much special attention at the Grammys last night. But if you looked closer you might have noticed it had a phone number printed across the front — that number belongs to one Sonny More, aka Skrillex.
The electro maestro formerly known as Joel Zimmerman donned the number with the words “U Mad Bro?” beneath it. On Twitter he confirmed the number belonged to his friend and commented on one of his three Grammy wins: “Congrats to @skrillex for the best remix grammy can’t say I’m not proud!”
Skrillex tried to turn on call-forwarding but Deadmau5 said he was “one step ahead.” And ladies, though his number only leads to a full voicemail inbox, in case you want to give it a go try dialing: (626) 319-1039.
Sadly, Kanye is not on this year’s WTF Grammy list, which has us wondering, is he taming down or saving his energy for something doubly shocking? Only time will tell. In the meantime, there were plenty of bewildering/confusing/awkward moments to tide us over.
1) No one knows who Bon Iver is. Really? This is like last year’s who the f**k is Arcade Fire moment. Bon Iver won best new artist, though he’s not exactly new on the scene. A new Twitter account has been created in recognition, called Who Is Bonnie Bear?
2) Nicki Minaj’s Grammy ensemble made her usual skin-bearing outfits look conservative. Minaj channeled her religious side, donning a red Versace Catholic-inspired robe. She had a Pope look-a-like escort her and later performed an exorcism on herself — not sure how her date felt about that part. We’re comparing this to Lady Gaga’s egg moment of last year.
3) The most ironic moment of the night goes to the Foo Fighter’s walking off the stage to LMFAO’s “Party Rock” after winning best rock performance. Grohl shouted “long live rock ‘n’ roll” as the electro pop song negated their point.
4) Coldplay got slack for his cracking voice. We all thought Adele was the one to worry about, what with her throat surgery and all, but apparently Chris Martin and Rihanna’s performance was not a favourite. Strangely, a Chipotle commercial aired right after the performance, featuring Coldplay’s music, prompting many to say the commercial represented an actual Coldplay performance. I don’t see the big deal! I don’t think his voice was that bad. Just me? Okay.
5) The Beach Boys reunion underwhelmed audiences. I hate to say it, but it kind of felt like a performance for a Florida retirement home. The California boys shared the stage with Maroon 5 and Foster the People. Foster the People has my vote as best of the three, though the band looked scared out of their minds.
Chris Brown showed off his impressive footwork at last night’s Grammys but his presence left others feeling queasy. His controversial return to the Grammys comes about three years after he assaulted ex-girlfriend Rihanna, a night before he was scheduled to appear at the 51st Grammy Awards. Although the performance was seen as his “comeback” it was also seen as some type of screw you to any women who has experienced domestic violence.
However, some Tweeters released a slew of upsetting posts. If Brown’s performance didn’t upset you, these posts will probably do the job. They’re only a few of the countless tweets.
It appears Jill Scott woke up today and forgot to eat some humble pie for breakfast.
The soul singer, who’s put out four studio albums since 2000, ranted on her Twitter page about not getting any Grammy nods last night.
If I were her I’d just be appreciative of the 160,000+ followers on Twitter and the number one albums and world recognition and respect. But I mean, if a Grammy is what helps her sleep at night, then so be it. It’s distasteful to see a celebrity complain about not being given too much. They seem to already have the world handed to them on a silver platter, yet for Jill Scott it doesn’t seem enough. I want a committed relationship, $1,000,000, a panda to cuddle with at night and a lifetime supply of sushi. Do I complain about it constantly on social networks? No. I try and appreciate what I have and work my way around it.
It seems Jill Scott cooled off a few hours after that epic tweet fail. She later wrote “my head is up. My son is healthy, my family is loving & so are my fans. God is real. Disappointments too still I come thru like a Kung foo.”
Looks like she won’t be interrupting Adele’s Grammy award speech anymore.
Janelle Monae is a true artist. Not only is she extremely talented artistically, she is also very intelligent and well spoken. We spoke to her about a variety of topics including women in music, The GRAMMYs, and finding your true identity. This is quite easily one of the most eloquent people andPOP has ever interviewed!
The first video will be out on Monday, February 28, and the second will be released later as a more stripped-down performance of the single. She will sell the video on iTunes and gear the profits towards an anti-bullying charity, which is fitting since the song is about accepting who you are and living without prejudice.
GaGa has given no hints about what the video will look like or include, but one can only imagine after her egg spectacle at the Grammys. The video is directed by Nick Knight, a British fashion photographer, who coincidentally shot GaGa for her Vanity Fair cover in September.
I’m excited for this video premiere. I can always count on GaGa to deliver something creative and exciting, a great change from predictable artists dominating the charts. Even if I hate it or don’t understand it, at least this video will leave me with some sort of emotion or opinion. As long as she’s got me talking, I’m happy.
I think that’s what a lot of pop stars today lack: creativity. When we watch a Britney Spears video or listen to a Rihanna song, do we really find ourselves that amazed or induced in thought? Of course not. It’s just another young, hot thing dancing around in her underwear. Which, at times is nice, but for the most part, not very stimulating. GaGa, on the other hand, has meaning behind her songs. She has depth, she has a voice. Whether people like her or hate her, at least she has a stance on something. And now, with two videos on the way, we’re promised double the freaky-deaky and double the opinion. Bring it.
The video is sure to be a success, though. The song went straight to #1 literally everywhere, and sold 1,000,000 copies in one week – the fastest song to do that, ever. I don’t know what it is about GaGa, but people love to scrutinize her, love to discuss her, and love to watch her. To me, that’s a modern pop star done right. Take notes, Britney.
Kanye West’s new music video for “All of The Lights” has received an Epilepsy warning from a British organization called Epilepsy Action, according to MTV News.
The charity group provides support for people with epilepsy, and says that the video “should not be broadcast on U.K. television.”
“However, the Kanye West video is still available online, most notably on YouTube where it has had several million hits, and no such regulations exist for online broadcasting,” said the organization in a statement.
As a result of this outburst, the video, which features a barely-dressed Rihanna, has been pulled from many stations including MuchMusic. “We are pleased to see that YouTube and Kanye West’s representatives have listened to our concerns and are warning people that the video is a risk to some people,” Epilepsy Action campaigns manager Aimee Gee said to MTV.
It’s true that the online world of broadcasting has drastically different rules than the television world – meaning there really are no rules for online broadcasting. It’ll be much harder for the music video to be pulled from YouTube than it was to get pulled from television, simply due to the fact that the online world is a free, post-whatever-you-want world. Warning ads have been placed before the video, though.
Now, I don’t know if I just feel bad for Kanye, but the dude just can’t catch a break. Ever since the Taylor Swift fiasco at the Grammys, his career has never been able to fully recover. Although the song is currently at number 14 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop chart, his video now risks the chance of getting pulled from all media outlets. Poor guy!
I don’t know if pulling the video from everywhere is the solution, though. The obvious answer to this problem seem simple to me; if you have epilepsy, don’t watch a music video called “All of The Lights“. I mean, lights is your first clue that you probably won’t enjoy it. Secondly, I realize that maybe someone could stumble upon the video and have an epileptic seisure, but how about changing the channel if you see bright lights? How are these flashing lights different from Ke$ha or Britney Spears’ videos?
I’ve personally seen the video and I really enjoyed it. I thought it was different, unique, and a fresh change from the usual videos played today. It seems like all the good videos are getting censored nowadays. Just a couple weeks ago, Rihanna’s “S&M” video got pulled in some countries as it was too ‘risky’. I mean, we live in a modern century, a little risky or bright lights won’t hurt anyone. Well, maybe, but you know what I mean.
Does that mean all strobe light parties are at risk of extinction too? Will the world become an abyss of black and white? Will all creativity be banished from our lives, and we’ll be forced to watch Glee episodes on repeat for the rest of eternity?
I know I’m being rash, but I mean, I feel bad for the guy. The video is good. Let Kanye have his moment.
See the video below and be careful!
Understandably, Bieber wanted to win at the Grammys on Sunday, and its understandable he’s a little bummed he didn’t win. And of course millions of little Bieber fans are disappointed about his loss, but Justin is taking the event in stride.
“Yes, I wanted to win, but I had an amazing night and performed with Usher and Jaden. That’s so huge!” Bieber told PopEater.
It’s actually refreshing to see this kid lose at something. Justin has $100 Million in the bank, his own biopic, and millions of screaming fans. Isn’t only fair he give someone else the spotlight for a change? And in all fairness, he did get a fair bit of attention at the Grammys during his performance.
So Justin learned a valuable lesson – you can’t always get your way. He’s growing up!!!!!!
According to Perez Hilton, singer Pink made her opinion public on who should be awarded Grammy of the Year and she chose no other than the infamous Lady GaGa. Pink was quoted on Perez Hilton.com speaking only praise and admiration for the pop star.
“I think I’d have to go with Lady Gaga because she really, really just took over this year. She was everywhere. She’s fearless when it comes to fashion and videos and I think a lot of other people play it really safe. I think she’s been a total breath of fresh air. I love her videos. In some ways I think she’s the most interesting without seeming to try to hard since Madonna. I think I’m able to like her because I don’t see any of myself in her. And for a while, I think, after Missundaztood came out, it was like, “Oh, everybody wants to be a rock star now.” But with her, I don’t know, I think she’s marching to the beat of her own drum. And I really, really like that,” said Pink.
They will be performing Drake’s collaborated track titled, “Forever.”
On the recorded version of the track, Kanye West also contributes his vocal talent. However, he will not be performing (perhaps keeping him away from award ceremonies is a good thing for a little while – especially when Taylor Swift is around).
As Christmas rolls around, and people around the world tune into the Jackson 5′s version of “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause,” featuring a young Michael, it quickly becomes obvious how long the King of Pop was in the business.
Perhaps the perfect way to honor that is a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Recording Academy. This is what Jackson will receive the day prior to the Grammy Awards on January 30, according to mtvnews.com. There are only six other musicians that have been honored with this award, including Bobby Darin, Leonard Cohen, David “Honeyboy” Edwards, Loretta Lynn, Andre Previn and Clark Terry.
The diva of this time has certainly earned her title.
With 10 Grammy nominations, starlet Beyonce has successfully matched the record for most nominations for a female artist in a single year. The other holder of this title is long-time crooner and Fugees Lauryn Hill. In 1999, Hill received 10 Grammy nominations for her solo album, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.”
The majority of Beyonce’s nominations stem from the hit album, “I am… Sasha Fierce,” with the exception of her work on the Cadillac Records soundtrack for her portrayal of the Etta James hit, “At Last.” Beyonce also performed this song in Obama’s honor as he was named President of the United States. She played James character in the film, and was celebrated for his dramatic performance.
In the midst of interviewing celebrities on the red carpet, celebrity wrangler Ryan Seacrest received word that Chris Brown is currently under investigation for an alleged assault. The 51st Grammy Awards Show is held in Los Angeles, California.
It was confirmed that Brown was present at the Clive Davis event last night with an unidentified woman. Another unidentified woman has accused Brown of assaulting on the way home from the party. There was an altercation, and the woman claims to have injuries. The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating the charges, but so far Brown has not been charged with anything.
Brown was supposed to perform at the Grammy’s Award Show, and it has been confirmed that he will not be attending. Brown’s girlfriend Rihanna will not attend the Grammy’s either. Brown has been nominated for two Grammy’s, and Rihanna has been nominated for three.
It is rumored that Justin Timberlake will replace Chris Brown on the stage for his performance.
