But More Importantly, El DeBarge Got A Grammy Nomination!

December 1, 2011 / Posted by:

Kanye West’s CAPS LOCK key has scurried down into his MacBook Air fearing the rantpocolypse he will unleash over not being nominated for Album of the Year, but the 80s ho in me has grown a thinstache of happiness over El DeBarge finally getting the recognition he deserves! If it was up to only me, the Grammys next year would have a 1986 theme and every award would go to El, but I guess him getting one nomination this year is better than nothing. El DeBarge’s mommy Prince (you cannot convince that Prince didn’t butt birth El DeBarge under a cherry moon) must be so proud.

So, the Grammy nominations were announced last night during a completely pointless concert (see pictures from that mess blow including one of Lady CaCa as an electrocuted Taylor Momsen) and Kanye got the most with 7 (but no Album or Record of the Year) and Adele came in second with 6. You know, I don’t even know why they’re bothering with a Grammy ceremony. Just back up Adele’s pick-up truck into the loading dock, toss every single trophy in there and shove a solid gold pacifier into Kanye’s rant hole so he doesn’t hijack the truck before she drives away. Really, it’s the fucking Adeleys this year.

If you want to read all of the nominations, take the rest of the day and shoot meth directly into your eyeball veins, because it’s going to take you at least 35 hours to get through all 500,000 categories. Here’s just a few of them (HAHA at Taylor Swift).
