Watch President Obama’s Grammy PSA About Rape & Domestic Violence

President Obama made a digital appearance in the middle of the Grammy Awards last night to deliver a stirring PSA about abuse and assault. He urged artists to use their influence to change the way Americans think about assault and pointed viewers to the It's On Us campaign "to help keep women and men safe from sexual assault." While it's incredibly…

The Best Moments Of The 2015 Grammys

Guys, the Grammy Awards are kind of a snoozefest unless you are super-invested in music, specifically popular music. But, if you love the spectacle of awards season and like watching people who would probably never sing together do just that, then the Grammys are the best thing to happen in the long, dark, miserable month…

All The Stars On The Red Carpet At The 2014 Grammy Awards!

I'm always surprised by how many musicians I have never heard of attend the Grammy Awards. Am I out of touch? Should I know who these many single-named singers are and what they're famous for? What is a Nadeea or a Vaja and a Huda? Fearing that these lovely ladies are actually superstars and I'm failing at being…

Live Tweet With The Frisky For The 2014 Grammy Awards!

If Beyonce and Jay-Z don’t perform “Drunk In Love” together at the Grammys, I give up on everything. EVERYTHING. And that’s why I’ll be watching every moment of that award show with bated breath until the Carters give me the stank faces of my dreams. But that's only one of the things I wish would happen

Who Else Would Really Like To See A Justin Bieber/Black Keys Catfight?

DRAMZ ALERT! Apparently, ever-charming Black Keys member Patrick Carney said some sort of disparaging comments about Justin Bieber (Patrick Carney, you should probably get a hobby or something), lambasting young Biebs for not winning any Grammys. "Grammys are for like music, not for money ... and he's making a lot of money," Carney said to…

Prankster Vitalii Seduik Snuck Into Grammys, Sat Behind Timberlake, Rushed Adele Onstage

Caption This Photo Contest: John Mayer & A Bunch Of Babes

Go wild: What do you think John Mayer could possibly be saying to these luscious babes? Okay, okay, what could John Mayer possibly be saying that wouldn't result in a sexual harassment suit? And what do you think the girls (who appear to be in a lady band, sorry I don't recognize them) must be…

The Best Boobs At The 2013 Grammy Awards

As we might have mentioned, the 2013 Grammys were a special affair. Not just because of the return of Justin Timberlake and a special appearance by Prince and his pimp cane, but because prior to the broadcast, CBS sent out a memo outlining a very special dress code. The dress code attempted to quell the…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: The 2013 Grammy Awards

The 2013 Grammys were a weird affair, no? "Hosted" by LL Cool J, who was barely seen, and featuring way more musical performances than actual awards, the Grammys are a bizarre fete. Nobody really thinks they're that on the ball or relevant, but still, we watch. This year, theere was fashion drama, as the Grammy…

A Field Guide To Bon Iver

Last night, Bon Iver took home the Grammy for Best New Artist, and almost immediately the Internet began asking, "Who the fuck is Bon Iver?" Thoroughly charmed by his self-aggrandizing, slightly annoyed acceptance speech (hipsters don't let hipsters win awards)? Yeah, we thought so. Below, we tell you everything you need to know about Bo…

Lady Gaga On The “Born This Way” And “Express Yourself” Parallels

Ever since the Grammys, when Lady Gaga debuted "Born This Way" live, people have been commenting on how the track sounds a whole lot like Madonna's "Express Yourself"—it has a similar spoken-word intro and the same sentiment, not to mention that Gaga's long ponytail for the performance was very Blonde Ambition. (Nevermind the fact that,…

Everything You Need To Know About Esperanza Spalding

Forget Kim Kardashian and Selena Gomez. Justin Bieber fans have a new person to hate—Esperanza Spalding. Justin was widely favored to win the Grammy for Best New Artist last night, but instead, the award went to Esperanza, who many people hadn't even heard of her until her name was called. So who is she? After…

Ke$ha Suggests Brushing Your Teeth With Jack Daniels

"Jack Daniels is an anti-bacterial and it's way better than morning breath. Let me put it this way, if you wake up naked in a bathtub and you have the choice between rinsing out with Jack Daniels or trying to make out with some dude with morning breath, I would recommend picking up the Jack."…

6 Reasons To Watch The Grammys

It's mid-February and award season malaise is already hitting us hard. With the Oscars so close on our radars, it's hard to get too exited about Sunday night's annual Grammy Awards.

What We Liked And Hated About The Grammy Nominations

Last night, the Grammy Nominations Concert tried its best to distract us from "Top Chef: All-Stars" and "Celebrity Rehab 4." It was unsuccessful, but I did DVR the special and fast forward through it this morning. LL Cool J hosted and, nestled among the nomination announcements, there were performances by Katy Perry, an oddly old-looking

Snooki Should Become A Regular On The Red Carpet

Will we ever get sick of Snooki? Perhaps, but we aren't there yet. The "Jersey Shore" star did red carpet interviews at last weekend's Grammys, including this priceless conversation with the guys from Phoenix. Snooki requests they sing a song, tells Laurent Brancowitz he looks like Edward Cullen, and asks them what they call guido…
