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.
Next up: Pink performs on a flaming banner of silk, walks the trapeze and performs MMA on a polar bear, and Nate Ruess will just stand there— Katie Hasty (@katieaprincess) January 27, 2014
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.
There's Lorde, reppin' for awkward dancers everywhere. About time we had someone! #grammys— Ashlyn Brewer (@AshlynBrewer) January 27, 2014
Wondering if the people who made the upcoming Lorde show at the Peabody an instant sellout are having a little buyer's remorse? #GRAMMYs— Daniel Durchholz (@danieldurchholz) January 27, 2014
STAR OF THE NIGHT
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.
