Grammys Highlights: Daft Punk Wins, Pharrell's Hat, Taylor Swift Has Sex with a Piano

Porn 'Stache Ruins Pink's Artistry

Pink is a phenomenal performer; there just aren't many vocalists who can belt out songs while twirling on a trapeze night after night. But damn, why did Nate Reuss have to ruin "Just Give Me a Reason" with his bizarre mustache? His follicular enthusiasm (not to mention his slightly off-pitch tone) detracted from what could have been one of the night's memorable performances.


Lorde Spaz-Dances While Wearing Mom's Pants

Lorde is only seventeen, but you wouldn't know it from her performance outfit of Mom's pleated black pants and a sleeveless white shell. Her award-accepting getup, which channeled Wednesday Addams, wasn't much better. The girl does have, um, interesting dance moves, though.

STAR OF THE NIGHT

Pharrell's Hat Speaks for Daft Punk

Daft Punk won a lot of crap last night -- album of the year, record of the year, stormtroopers of the year, etc. -- but because the duo is made up of weird French robot folks with giant helmets, they didn't actually thank anyone for their good fortune. Instead, producer, rapper and collaborator Pharrell Williams had to do it for them. But it wasn't just Williams who was making statements -- Pharrell's hat got into the game, too! Wearing multiple chapeaux that viewers claimed as Dudley Do-Right's or Smokey the Bear's, Williams forced the Twitterverse to create @pharrellhat.

I didn't enjoy the Grammys much. Too much noise and not enough music. Am I getting old? A few good songs in between the bad ones.

Have to say about 3/4 of it was a joke. Where did it change from classy to ghastly?

Lynn, what is wrong with satanic rituals? Offend you, do they? Too bad.

and the lemmings sit there while satanic rituals are being performed right in front of them and have no idea what is taking place... wake up America... Protect your children... Educate yourself.... believe what you are seeing is real... cause it is really happening.

I loved it...I love music....it was nice to see a vast array of artists and the nominations being sung by ordinary people not the actual artists, that was different

Still beyond disappointed about credits running in on Nine Inch Nails and company. Seriously, very big deal for me to watch Lindsey Buckingham play with Nine Inch Nails and QOTSA and it was ruined.

I hate when lazy people complain about the state of music today. Its one thing to say pop music sucks, but just because you haven't opened your mind enough or even bothered to seek out talented, lesser known artists doesn't mean that music these days sucks. Pop music has pretty much always sucked, in general.

Madonna with a grill and pimp stick equals ridiculous! I have to think that while Willy, Merle, Kris, Paul and Ringo enjoyed the energy of Get Lucky-they probably wanted to kick Daft Punk in the ass!

considering most of today's modern pop music is computerized, handing out awards to robots seems appropriate.

Satanic rituals? Hell, I would have watched if I'd known that. Anything that pisses off christ stains is worth watching in my book.

@w0px That's what I'm here for - to watch/listen to stuff that's too disgusting for our awesome readers. Thank you! @rftmusic

i wish i could like this comment more. also people aren't acknowleding the good artist there. Sara Bareilles is to me one of the best songwriters and singers around. i thought she should've won album of the year. exactly and also most mainstream music has sucked for about 15 years now at least since i can remember

Then I guess you'd better buy a one way ticket to Iran, because it's only gonna get worse for people like you in America.
