The 2023 Grammy Award nominations came out today, and Beyoncé leads the pack with 9 nominations for her album, Renaissance. Kendrick Lamar follows closely behind with eight noms, and Adele and Brandi Carlile each snagged seven. With these latest nods, Beyoncé ties her husband Jay-Z as the most Grammy-nominated artist of all time: 88 nods in total. Fart out one more song in the next year, Bey, and your long con revenge plot against Jay’s cheating ass will finally be complete!
The NFL Warned Eminem And Dr. Dre Not To Get Political During The Super Bowl Halftime Show, Which They Did Anyway
The Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show (brought to you by Pepsi) happened last night, as expected, and it went off without a hitch. Dr. Dre was joined by Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, and Anderson .Paak. No Left Shark here. Except, if you’re the NFL, then you might think that was the biggest PR disaster of a Super Bowl Halftime Show this side of Justin Timberlake’s hand exposing a titty. According to sources, the NFL really didn’t want Dr. Dre to sing one very specific anti-police lyric in “Still D.R.E.“, and they really really didn’t want Eminem to take a knee, a la Colin Kaepernick. That screen shot above might have been the exact moment all those NFL politically-averse control freaks dropped their Pepsis in shock. Because as you can see, Eminem took that knee, and Dr. Dre closed the show with “Still D.R.E.“, with that anti-cop lyric right where it usually is.
Well, it’s official (in my Julie Chen-Moonves voice). The Oscars gave the people another reason to watch reruns of America’s Funniest Home Videos instead. I was looking forward to the moment during that stuffy evening of stiff faces when Kendrick Lamar and SZA interrupted the energy while performing the Oscar nominated song “All The Stars” from the also nominated film Black Panther. However, since that’s no longer happening, some might choose to do something more fun like prepare their taxes.
I’m not sure what kind of curse has been placed over this year’s Academy Awards but it has been rapidly declining into a horrific display of fuckery for weeks now. First, there was Kevin Hart’s failed attempt of caring about the LGBTQ community. Then there was the announcement that this year’s host will be invisible. And now it’s being reported that out of the five nominated tunes in the Best Song category the only people performing this year might be Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga.
The nominations for the 60th Grammy awards were announced this morning, and Jay-Z led with eight nominations. I suppose you could say that Jay-Z is the Beyoncé of this year’s Grammys? Although she actually got one this year too, for Best Rap/Sung Performance. I’m sure it’s a big day in the Knowles Carter house. Congratulations on your Grammy nomination, Beyonce! And also, you know, good job on all the ones you got today too, Jay-Z.
Sometimes the people of the internet can be that catty, judgmental frenemy with nothing nice to say EVER. Even when there is a positive story, they feel the need to crack their knuckles, sit on their toilets with their phone and talk shit (I imagine that’s where most of those fuckfaces do their dirty work). Just ask Kendrick Lamar’s sister, Kayla Duckworth.
