Love is dead. Wee dubstep moppet Skrillex and girlfriend Ellie Goulding have split, their love apparently a casualty of Hurricane Sandy, or STDs or whatever, who cares? Actually, according to Us, it was the travails of a long distance relationship. It’s over,” said a “source” who is frayuns with Goulding told the mag. “There’s no bad blood. Just a classic case of long distance being impossible. They hope to remain good friends.” Said another source-cical, “Work schedules and distance took their toll. She’s fine though.” The important thing is, who gets to keep the haircut? [Us Weekly]
Generally, I am not a fan of jumpsuits or Lady Skrillex hair (though I do love silently saying in my head, Girrrrrrrrrrrrl, you got Skrillex hair!). But somehow, I think this look, worn by Cassie — who, to be honest, had Lady Skrillex hair before Skrillex was even a thing — really works on her. I don’t know, though, it’s still a jumpsuit, and what is Cassie even doing at Cannes, anyway? Does this look work for her? You decide.
Ugh, the Grammys: so, so, so boring and mainstream in their nominations with the occasional WTF?! thrown in for good measure. The 2012 nominees, announced last night, are no exception. Adele was deservedly nominated for all the major awards and will likely take them all home. Meanwhile, Beyonce’s 4, which was arguably one of her best albums ever, was snubbed, as was Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.” Jay-Z and Kanye West got some love for their Watch the Throne collab, while Lady Gaga’s third consecutive Album of the Year nod has her tied for the record with The Beatles. And then there was something about a band called Skrillex making me feel old. Those are the noms in a nutshell, with more of my thoughts displayed in the Approval Matrix at left. Here‘s a list of more nominees.
