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.”

Ke$ha defends her lyric in “Tik Tok,” “Before I leave, brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack.” Uh, I think she should probably consult a dentist on this. Also, how often does one wake up naked and in a bathtub? [Huffington Post]

After the jump, hear Ke$ha’s reaction to not getting nominated for a Grammy. Keep reading »

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. Bashing the Grammys is something of a sport—when the nominations were bestowed in December, we noted how ridiculous it is that many classic albums of 2010 wouldn’t be considered because they dropped after the September 30th deadline and that the nominees in the rock/metal/hard rock categories seemed straight out of the ’90s. But still, you should still watch because, well, you should. After the jump, five SIX! reasons not to miss the Grammy Awards. Keep reading »

On last night’s “Colbert Report,” Stephen invited Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney of The Black Keys and Ezra Koenig from Vampire Weekend on to figure out who should win this year’s Grammy for best alternative album. To settle the score, Colbert challenged the two bands to a “sell-out-off.” While the Keys have a Victoria’s Secret and Zales commercial under their belt, Vampire Weekend boasts commercials for Honda and Tommy Hilfiger. As Colbert notes, “Clearly, you have both equally whored out your music.” So true! [Comedy Central] Keep reading »

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 Justin Bieber, Miranda Lambert, and Bruno Mars. After the jump, three things that made me happy about the 2010 Grammy lineup and three things that made me sad.

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 guidos in France. If her reality TV career doesn’t stick, Snooki should become a regular at awards shows. Red carpet interviews would be so much more interesting with her interrogating celebrities.
