Commentary: Grammys 2012

  • Did anyone see Bruno Mars’ silly tantrum backstage after Adele won for best pop vocalist?
  • Chris Brown. Quit your lip synching or gtfo the stage.
  • I don’t think I could ever get sick of The Foo Fighters.
  • I actually enjoyed Dave Grohl’s speech and appreciate him for voicing his opinion, but  it’s a shame they cut him off…
  • I could’ve sworn I saw a twinkle in Mark Foster’s eye when he was singing The Beach Boys’ “Wouldn’t It Be Nice.” My heart melted because it felt like he was just singing straight to me.
  • John Legend grooving to The Beach Boys was also quite adorable.
  • The Beach Boys are looking and sounding pretty great for their age! It feels like just yesterday I was watching them on that one episode of Full House.
  • Nope Chris Brown, we don’t have to forgive you. The Grammy’s can put you in our faces all they want, but I’m not budging.
  • Even though it wasn’t well received, I loved Taylor Swift’s dress during her performance of “Mean.” Now if I could only find out who the designer was…
  • Neil Patrick Harris is a babe.
  • I am still amazed by Katy Perry every time I hear anything about her and her music. Does anyone remember the poor review I gave her nearly two years ago? She’s grown as an artist definitely, but I’m not taking back anything I said. Her new song has potential for being the new girl anthem of 2012 though.
  • Adele SLAYED w/ her performance!
  • Bon Iver for Best New Artist – YAY! Great speech.
  • Jennifer Hudson’s tribute to Whitney Houston: Flawless
  • Nicki Minaj’s performance is not as family-friendly as I thought it would be. It was downright terrifying.
  • Adele is also the loveliest human being ever.  What a doll! She totally deserved all of her awards tonight.
  • (and none for Lady Gaga – sad day)

On an important related note, this HelloGiggles post about why people shouldn’t be okay with Chris Brown performing at the Grammy’s is quite insightful. I’ve had a similar opinion for awhile, but usually when I talk about that I make jabs at his performance and the more obvious scandal. This writer, however, has got some pretty solid facts and it is worth reading. And not to start something controversial, but the reason why that HelloGiggles post is mentioned on Yow Yow is so we can avoid things like this. It’s important for all of us to remember that there’s a border between a play on words or a play off pop culture, but this is not one of those times. It’s not cute anymore especially when it involves Chris Brown. Typing things like this out as a tweet is not the same as feeling the same way or wanting to be in that situation. Not being able to tell the difference between these things frightens me and makes me fear for the safety of other young women that have this notion in their head that it is okay to say these things.
