Are the Grammy’s even relevant any more?

MC or you might know her as Mariah Carey won 3 Grammys last night…normally a good haul for anyone but a crappy night for her when you think about the fact that Kelly Clarkson won TWO and by winning those two she beat MC in each category. Come on now Kelly Clarkson over Mariah? U2 winning album of the year? It was a decent album, but nothing great
I do not watch the Grammys in fact for much of last night I didn’t even know/care that it was on. I just tend to check the stats afterwards since and other sites splash it all over their front pages, but damn I look at some of the winners and just have to stare in shock.

     I believe that there is a disconnect between the regular fan and the academy that votes for winners. Now I do not believe that just because your album was a huge seller it makes you automatically a good album, in fact I was disappointed to see Gwen Steffani even in the running for album of the year. But some of the bands that are pulling down wins are just ridiculous. It also sometimes seems like a band is honored just for making it through another year and thus given a grammy

Hahaha Kanye West is so damn cocky, you just gotta be amused!

Kelly Clarkson deserved those grammys. It is a pretty good album. Mariah Carey is highly overrated. I thought you had better taste in music.

Shove your bashing of my musical taste up your stuck up rear. Kelly Clarkson instantly gets ridiculed (rightly or wrongly) because of her status as an American Idol winner, MC also gets ridiculed because for the last 4-5 years she has been crazy and put out sub par music...this latest album was great, MUCH better than Kelly Clarkson (sadly I have heard both albums) in a head to head competition between MC and KC: MC's current album blows her out of the water, whether MC is over-rated or not. I also feel that women tend to dislike MC and just automatically want to label her as over-rated. I do not dislike KC, I just think her album was not as good!

I deserved that. However, I still think you are wrong.

Why would women be jaded against MC? I don't get it. And as I said to you on the phone, MC has an amazing voice, but she simply is not an artist. She couldn't interpret music to save her life. She sounds great, but her singing style is all about showing off and making love to herself. I am of the opinion that a singer should be a vessel (did I spell that right?), a conduit for the music. MC is too self-centered a performer to do that.

KC on the other hand is turning out to be far more of an emotional singer. She may not be as vocally talented as MC (although that is debatable), but she isn't as self absorbed, which I believe makes her the better artist.

About Me

My photo
Cali-J ueber alles in der Welt. Some think that I am mean; (I call them friends), in fact I am not that mean. What I am is sarcastic and dry to the sandpaper level. I have friends that I have never said a kind word to their face, but I praise to the ends of the earth to anyone I know and will defend them to the end. That’s just how I roll! My boys know that I am down for them, my girls know that no matter what I will keep them safe (and occasionally flirt with them [If you are a female friend of mine and think I haven’t flirted with you it just means you didn’t notice, it was extremely subtle or…not yet ]). No one is safe from my sarcasm even my own parents; hence of course as a kid I spent a significant amount of time in punishment. I treat people with respect if I think they deserve it – everyone starts off with the same amount of respect from me (a lot). You don’t need to earn my respect; you have to keep my respect.
