Kendrick Lamar won 5 grammy’s last night.
Did y’all see his performance? It was pretty good. He was dressed in chain gang attire and he performed “alright” & “the blacker the berry”. It was very intense and energetic. The crowd was on their feet. He did change some of the lyrics to his song. I thought I was the only one who caught it. He changed the hating police line to something about I’m at the preacher’s door… Wana kill us dead at the preacher’s door.
He won best rap album of the year.
Kendrick also brought some Compton kids from his former high school, centennial to the grammy’s with him. So that was nice.
Taylor Swift sneak dissed Kanye during her acceptance speech for winning album of the year. Kanye previously said in his song “famous” that he is responsible for Taylor’s career and she let it be known thats totally false.
But Kanye responded with more tweets about how feeding his family has been his main priority and how Adidas has helped him live out his dream, but also caused him to amass debt and people have tried to take advantage of him because of the debt. and making music won’t help cover the costs. Woo! Bless Yeezus. He’s going through it.
Ciara got Twitter shamed for wearing a revealing ass dress last night. If you didn’t see it, her entire chicken leg and thigh was out and so was her entire back. I think the only thing holding it together was a little satin bow on the side. There were some tweets saying that she’s the devil for tempting Russell especially after she confessed having difficulty with her celibacy.
There was also some backlash for Pharrell’s hair. People were saying he looked like Jun Tao from rush hour and Bow Wow kept messing up the countdown. ASAP Rocky had on runway Gucci and his man bag. Maya was also in the building and she looked great in an all black dress and her curls were popping.
Sadly Rihanna , Beyoncé , nor Lauryn hill performed, but bey did announce the record of the year.
Rihanna has bronchitis and a rep for Lauryn Hill said the performance was last minute and she was doing concerts of her own so she wasn’t able to make it to LA in time. The collaboration with she and the Weeknd was never actually confirmed , so the Weeknd performed “can’t feel my face” and “in the night” alone.
