Punk/rock/R&B Diva Pink brought a circus atmosphere to the 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards tonight when she sang “Glitter In The Air” from her Funhouse album. The athletic star twirled, flipped, and spun like a precision top while suspended from a white sheet. No one else touched this performance. Pink should have won a GRAMMY for putting the ‘show’ into the GRAMMY Awards show.

Who else wishes Pink would have sang her hit “Stupid Girl” while Beyonce sat looking stupid in the audience?

I’ll be dining out tonight, so, unfortunately, I will miss the 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards telecast (as I always do every year). You can use this open thread to jot down your thoughts and opinions on tonight’s show, or whatever else is on your mind.

Don’t forget, tomorrow I’m posting my revealing videotaped interview with actress and former First Lady LisaRaye, who co-hosted the Trumpet Awards over the weekend!

Below and after the break are photos from last night’s Clive Davis pre-GRAMMY party.

Doesn’t Rihanna look fabulous in her Viktor and Rolf 2010 Spring Collection tulle corset dress?

Psuedo-singer Ciara wore Big Bird Couture last night on the red carpet. Actually, she was wearing Givenchy from the Spring 2010 Couture Collection, according to the Fashion Critic.

Remember when Usher was king of R&B? It’s a shame what Tameka Foster did to his career.

Keri Hilson looks like the statue of liberty in this gold chainlink dress with shimmering gold powder dust all over her body. Too much?

Taylor Swift should win an award just for killing Kanye West’s career

It’s random, I know. But it looks like LA Laker Lamar Odom is another one of those opportunist ball players (like Matt Kemp) who get it in with any female celebrity hoping for a little shine.

I checked the archives and this footage was shot at Lil Kim’s birthday party in 2008. But Lil Kim is all in his lap indicating they might have had a fling.

Hey sandra,

I just came across this picture and video of khloe kardashian’s husband lamar odom and lil kim getting a little too close for comfort, the picture is harmless, but in the video she is all on his lap. I know khloe and him haven’t been married for that long, but “was” or “is” lil kim creeping with him?

It isn’t easy being an immature narcissist with the common sense of a hamster.

Last week, actor George Clooney and producers of the successful Haiti telethon banned troubled rapper/producer Kanye West from participating. At the time, a producer said, “Kanye has to make everything about himself. He will do anything to steal the spotlight and, well, this night it’s just not about him.”

It seems the Hollywood blacklisting of Kanye West continues: the Grammy winner didn’t receive any nominations or an invite to attend the Awards show.

The Grammy nominations themselves were a stern rebuke of West, after his lash-out at Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards, since his phenomenal album “808s and Heartbreaks” didn’t get any nods – which is unbelievable considering each of his last albums has not only been nominated for several awards, but all of them actually won the trophy for best rap album. Now, after releasing his most subtle and mature album, he gets no love. What else could be the reason except for an extended fallout from the Taylor Swift fiasco? Read More…

If this keeps up, people will begin referring to Kanye West as Amber Rose’s boyfriend.

According to singer Etta James’ son, the Diva was hospitalized about a week ago with sepsis (a serious blood infection) caused by a urinary tract infection.

Donto James said his mother entered a drug rehab facility on the west coast to shake her dependency on prescription drugs. She was transferred to another facility then to the hospital when her condition worsened.

James is best known for her timeless classic “At Last” which was the subject of a full length movie starring burlesque singer Beyonce. Speaking of Beyonce, her perfume ad debuted this morning all over the Internet.

After weeks of speculation and rumors of domestic abuse surrounding her relationship with Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp, pop singer Rihanna now says she’s single.

Rihanna chose a colorful dress for her performance on Ellen for an episode that will air Monday.
The 21-year-old pop star talked about her tattoos, her love life and the future.

Here are the highlights:

On her love life:

Ellen: “I read that you said you’re going to fall in love by 31 years old. That is your goal that you have to be in love by 31. Is that real? Did you say that.”
Rihanna: “No, but I hope I am. 31 is a decade away. I better be in love by then.”
Ellen: “Are you dating anyone now?”
Rhianna: “No, I’m single.”
Ellen: “Really, what about that guy we keep seeing you with…”
Rihanna: (Laughs)


RuPaul, the nation’s most famous drag queen says (s)he will not be in attendance at New York’s pompous Fashion Week next week.

When asked if (s)he’ll participate in Fashion Week, RuPaul replied, “I don’t. I cannot stand the people. I think the fashion people are so nasty and so pretentious. One thing that I am not is pretentious and I cannot stand pretentious people. I love fashion, love color, love texture, love all of that. But all of the people who surround that are rot-ten.” Season two of RuPaul’s Drag Race premieres on February 1. Read more…
