Drake hasn't been shy about the troubled relationship he has with Cash Money Records, and this probably won't help things: Hits Daily Double reports that his massive single "Hotline Bling" wasn't nominated for any Grammys this year because of a "clerical error." Presumably it got lost in Birdman's pile of paperwork for his "oil company."

Kanye West made an appearance on The Breakfast Club today, where he said his album is "80% done," will be a suprise release, and be "cookout music." He also commented on Beck (saying he has been meaning to call him about the Grammys), and the recent drama between Tyga, Amber Rose, and the Kardashian family.

Rdio is reporting that streams for Beck increased by 1000% after the Grammys the other night. Seems like a good boost even though Grammy ratings were their lowest since 2009.

According to Billboard, Beck's Morning Phase was the lowest-selling LP of this year's album of the year nominees and the lowest-selling album to win AOTY since 2008.
For comparison, six out of the last 10 LPs to win album of the year have sold more than a million copies before nabbing the honor. And all but three have moved more than half a million copies before winning album of the year (Arcade Fire's The Suburbs was also shy of that milestone).

How many times has Kanye tried to give away his awards to artists he felt deserved them more? Fader has collected video of Yeezy doing that here, plus an added bonus where he talks about how he doesn't keep any of them.

Somehow the Grammys had yet to allow songs featuring sampling (primarily hip hop) or interpolation to be considered for every category, including majors like Song of the Year. That changed today, with the Recording Academy announcing a number of rule and name changes that included making songs that sample valid contenders for every category.

Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme echoed the comments made by Trent Reznor following the abrupt cutting off of their joint performance at the Grammy's. Homme, during a performance in Houston, said "Fuck Imagine Dragons and fuck the Grammy's," and apparently unironically "Fuck everything, fuck the man." Watch the tirade in the replies and get off his lawn.

Pardoning my first-ever horrible pun headline - Drake talks in the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone about Macklemore's infamous Instagram of an apology he texted to Kendrick Lamar upon winning the Grammy for Best Rap Album last month. More exactly, he calls the move "wack as fuck."
I was like, 'You won. Why are you posting your text message? Just chill. Take your W, and if you feel you didn't deserve it, go get better—make better music... It felt cheap. It didn't feel genuine. Why do that? Why feel guilt? You think those guys would pay homage to you if they won? This is how the world works: He made a brand of music that appealed to more people than me, Hov, Kanye and Kendrick. Whether...

In a recent XXL interview, Kendrick Lamar has addressed the Grammys' results, Macklemore winning, and hip-hop culture at the event.
"It’s well deserved; he did what he did, man... He went out there and hustled and grinded. Everything happens for a reason; the universe comes back around, that’s how it go." [...] “I definitely feel like they should always have more of the culture up in there, for sure, because we definitely stand out just like any other genre,” Kendrick said when asked if he thought the Grammys undervalued hip-hop. “We part of the world. We part of the movement. So I think any awards, including the Grammys, should always push for more hip-hop because it’s music as a whole,...

Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) was not pleased with the Grammys and CBS after the telecast cut short his show-closing performance with Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), and Lindsey Buckingham (Fleetwood Mac).
trent_reznor: Music's biggest night... to be disrespected. A heartfelt FUCK YOU guys.

The complete list of all the nominations for next month's 56th Annual Grammy Awards has been announced. Justin Timberlake was snubbed all night, but Kendrick Lamar was a big winner. I found myself somewhere above average, correctly predicting 12 of the 20 nominees.

The one-hour "The Grammy Nominations Concert Live -- Countdown to Music’s Biggest Night,” will announce nominees in several categories and feature performances from Taylor Swift, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Lorde, Katy Perry, and others. It will air at 10 PM EST on the East Coast (and 10 PM PST for the West Coast) on CBS. What are you predictions? You can find my predictions for the major four categories in the replies.

Our new interview with the two-time Grammy winning fun. can be found here.
There’s a lot of stuff we’ve done this year and we’ve gotten really good at just shutting off. There’s some things that are too big to even think about, and you get to the point in your head where all you can think about while you’re up there is when you used to do really small shows. Now it’s the Grammys, but it’s still the same thing. The environment is the same. It’s the same emotions. I play guitar the same way, Nate sings the same way, so it’s really important in those moments to treat it no different than like playing a club show.

Tonight at 8 PM EST is the 55th annual Grammy Awards and this is the thread to post in with any and all of your opinions about this year's winners, losers, and performers. Unfortunately for me, this isn't being broadcast live in Los Angeles (because that makes sense), so I'll be following along in here and on twitter before the tape-delayed broadcast airs here, so don't let me down! You can check out the full list of nominees here.
Drew Beringer on 02/10/13 - 04:42 PM
Looks like fun.'s Grammy nominations make them the first ever "rock band" to score nods in the top four categories: “Song of the Year,” “Record of the Year,” “Album of the Year,” and “Best New Artist.” Hit the replies for the full press release. Congrats to them!
Ryan Gardner on 12/10/12 - 04:17 PM

Tonight at 8PM EST is the 54th Annual Grammy's award show and I'll be live-blogging the telecast to give my fifteen cents on the winners, the losers, the performers, and everything else in between. This year's show has a dark cloud over it, as R&B legend Whitney Houston passed away the night before. There will be a tribute dedicated to her led by Jennifer Hudson and other artists that haven't been announced yet. This will be the second tribute of the night, as the Grammy's will also pay their respects to the late Etta James, who passed in January.

Earlier today, Skrillex won three Grammy's, and he is also up for Best New Artist along with Bon Iver, Nicki Minaj, The Band Perry, and...
Drew Beringer on 02/12/12 - 04:15 PM

The Grammys are here yet again, so head to the replies to talk about the best and worst outfits. I suppose you can also have a discussion about the nominees, and who you think will win some of the biggest awards tonight.
Lueda Alia on 02/13/11 - 04:12 PM
The Grammys announced nominations recently, with Eminem receiving the most. Head to the replies to see who else is up for an award that still means everything to the strong, proud music industry.
