Owens expressed her concerns to Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Monday night.

"You have the kids learning about critical race theory. They're learning that they should aspire to be people like Cardi B. You see that fundamentally we are seeing the destruction of American values and American principles," Owens said. "We are celebrating perversity."

"It's terrifying. I think parents should be terrified that this is the direction our society is heading towards. And again, we are weakening America... This is a weakening of American society. It feels like we are looking at corrosion; like we are about to see the end of an empire."

Cardi responded to Owens' concerns by mocking her on Twitter.com.

"Love it or hate it, criticize it , judge it JUST BRING THE VIEWS IN... NUMBER 1 trending," she tweeted on Monday.

As the video footage passed the four million views mark, Cardi quipped, "Americans are so horny."

"Yaaaayyyyyyy. WE MADE FOX NEWS GUYS!!! Wap wap wap."

"Matter fact I'm just going to thank Candy. She put my performance on Fox News giving it more views that boosted the views on YouTube and is counting towards my streams and sales...

"STREAM UP AND WAP .REMEMBER GROWN PARENTS ONLY YOU CAN MONITOR WHAT YOUR KIDS WATCH NO1 ELSE."

Beyonce Knowles-Carter and her husband, rapper Jay Z, attended a Grammys after party at Di Girogio Baldi restaurant after she made Grammy history as the winningest woman on Sunday night.

Beyonce almost triggered a cancel culture meltdown on social media when she arrived at the restaurant without a face covering.

California still has draconian Covid-19 restrictions such as face mask mandates in place -- and violation can result in a fine of $1,000.

When someone reminded Beyonce of the face mask laws, she covered her mouth and nose with her hand -- as her frantic assistant rushed to get her a mask.

The assistant helped Beyonce put on her face mask because Jay Z refused to let go of her hand. How adorable is that?

The 39-year-old fashion plate wore a custom silver metallic Burberry ensemble featuring nail head mesh embroidery, a crystal-embellished corset bodice and a matching head wrap with a sheer veil covering her face, according to PEOPLE.

Beyoncé paired the metallic outfit with platform heels and over 50 carats of Lorraine Schwartz diamonds.

Her husband, 51, dressed casually in a black hoodie, a black trench coat and sunglasses.

The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards was dubbed the "woke" Grammys and the "Pandemic Grammys" for its emphasis on politics, coronavirus vaccines, and social justice issues.

Anderson .Paak deservedly won the Grammy Award for Best Melodic Rap Performance for his critically acclaimed single "Lockdown".

The esteemed singer, songwriter and producer released his highly regarded single "Lockdown" earlier this year on Juneteenth via Aftermath Entertainment, exclusively distributed by 12Tone Music, LLC.

Inspiration for the song came from .Paak's participation in a Los Angeles Black Lives Matter protest where peaceful protestors were being shot with rubber bullets by the police.

The song was accompanied by the Grammy-nominated video directed by Dave Meyers featuring Andra Day, Jay Rock, Syd, SiR, Dumbfoundead & Dominic Fike.

.Paak is now a 4-time Grammy winner. He won Best R&B Album for Ventura (2019) and Best R&B Performance for "Come Home" featuring rapper Andre 3000. He won his first Grammy in 2019 for Best Rap Performance for his song, "Bubblin'".

"I Can't Breathe" was inspired by the death of 46-year-old George Floyd in Minneapolis last year.

Floyd (pictured) died on May 25, 2020 when ex-cop Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck for 8 minutes as he pleaded for his life during an arrest for allegedly passing a counterfeit bill in a bodega.

Chauvin is currently on trial for murder in Minneapolis. Jury selection is still underway.

The city of Minneapolis settled a wrongful death lawsuit with Floyd's family for a record $27 million last week.

Megan Thee Stallion picked up three Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday night. She appeared stunned and choked back tears when she realized she'd won the Best New Artist award, making her the first female rapper to win the award in 22 years after Lauren Hill took home the honor in 1999.

The 26-year-old rapper won Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Song award with her "Savage" collaborator Beyonce.

Megan thanked her competition, including singer Doja Cat, pictured right, in her acceptance speech.

"First of all, I wanna say, everybody is amazing. Every artist that was nominated for this award is so amazing." She also thanked God, her team, and her late mother.

The Houston rapper also won for the Best Rap Song trophy with her idol, Beyonce. They held hands as the two superstars took to the stage outside the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The rapper giggled through her acceptance speech after the "Crazy In Love" singer initially left her speechless. "If you know me, you have to know that ever since I was little I was like, 'You know what, one day when I grow up I'm gonna be, like, the rap Beyonce'. That was definitely my goal," she said.

"I remember I went to the (Houston) Rodeo for the first time and I saw Destiny's Child perform and I was like..., 'I love her work ethic, I love the way she is, I love the way she carried herself', and my mama will always be like, 'Megan, what would Beyonce do...?'"

Holding back tears, she also thanked Beyonce's husband, Jay Z, for "putting me on Roc Nation", and she added, "My life has changed."

Beyonce also shared the love, telling Megan, "I have so much respect for you and I'm honored that you asked me to be part of this song."

Megan and her "WAP" collaborator Cardi B performed their controversial hit live onstage. Their raunchy performance lit up the CBS Twitter page with complaints.

Rap legend Nas won his first ever trophy for Best Rap Album at the 63rd annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Nas, born Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones, finally won a Grammy Award for his hard work and dedication to his craft. The 47-year-old rapper took home the Best Rap Album trophy for King's Disease, which dropped in 2020.

Nas' rap career began in 1991, as a featured artist on Main Source's "Live at the Barbeque". His debut album Illmatic (1994) is still considered one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time. He was nominated for a Grammy 14 times.

Beyonce made history as the winningest woman in Grammy history after she won the Best R&B Performance award for her much-criticized single "Black Parade."

The "Crazy in Love" singer picked up four trophies, including Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for her "Savage" collaboration with fellow Texan Megan Thee Stallion, taking her career Grammy wins to 28.

Legendary music producer Jimmy Jam presented the award to Beyonce, stating, "History has just been made. Breaking the all-time record for the most Grammy wins ever by any female artist or any singer, male or female, the Grammy goes to Beyonce."

The stunned star, pictured with Jay Z, took the mic and said, "As an artist, I believe it's my job - and all of our jobs - to reflect the times. It's been such a difficult time, so I wanted to uplift, encourage and celebrate all of the beautiful black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the whole world.

"This is so overwhelming. I've been working my whole life, since nine years old and I can't believe this happened. It's such a magical night."

Beyonce's daughter, Blue Ivy, won her first Grammy award for her mother's single "Brown Skin Girl", which was named Best Music Video.
 

Kanye Omari West won his 22nd Grammy Award to tie with Beyonce's husband, Jay Z, for most Grammy Awards won by a rapper.

Kanye, 43, won the Grammy for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for Jesus is King, which he released to much fanfare in 2019.

Kanye is just one win away from a setting a record for most Grammys won by a hip-hop artist. The father-of-four, who is in the midst of a divorce from Kim Kardashian, wasn't present to pick up his award.
 

The 2021 Grammy Awards was hosted by Trevor Noah, host of "The Daily Show," who was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The 37-year-old TV personality said he hoped the Grammy Awards could signify "new beginnings" as he joked that the show "celebrated the music that got us through the last 10 years of coronavirus".

He also joked about coronavirus vaccines, saying, the music is "about bringing us all together as only music can. Well, I mean, music and vaccines."

In fact, the "Woke" Grammys was all about diversity, inclusion, coronavirus and vaccines. Celebrities preached about vaccines, social distancing and mask wearing -- although few stars wore masks onstage or behind the scenes.

Beyonce Knowles Carter has built her entire career stealing from other artists. Now her fans are accusing superstar Jennifer Lopez of ripping off Beyonce's performance from the 2014 Grammy Awards.

J.Lo's performance at the 2020 American Music Awards on Sunday night drew comparisons to Beyonce's "Drunk in Love" set at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.

The 51-year-old Latina singer was joined by Colombian singer Maluma to perform "Pa Ti" and "Lonely" from the soundtrack of their upcoming movie Marry Me.

While many took to social media to praise Jennifer for her incredible performance, Beyonce's fans were quick to point out the similarities between her performance and Beyonce's performance six years ago.

"Does anyone notice that J.Lo is ripping off Beyonce on her performance at the amas," one fan wrote, while another added, "JLO really stole Beyoncé's whole drunk in love performance. Copied everything, down to the outfit."

Fans noted that both women sported wet look bobs, and Jennifer donned a black bodysuit that was similar to the one Beyonce wore for her Grammys performance.

Both stars also started their performances sitting on a chair, with black, blue and red lighting on the stage.

However, others were quick to jump to Jennifer's defense, pointing out that Beyonce's creative thievery is legendary:

"You're joking, right? If you think for 1 second that this is Beyonce's concept, you are a pop-culture illiterate. It's homage to Cell Block Tango from Chicago (the movie/play, NOT the city). It predates both JLo's and Beyonce's careers. #ResearchTHENpost."

And another added: "Girl... Beyonce did not invent black swimsuits and wet hair bob type look... That's just how Jlo looks in the MV (music video) for that song. Calm down."

Kanye West was temporarily banned by Twitter after he shared a screenshot of a journalist's phone number.

The ban came after Kanye went on a tweeting rampage over the past few days that including a video of himself urinating on a Grammy Award and posting screenshots of his recording contract.

On Wednesday, Kanye shared a screenshot of a phone number belonging to Forbes magazine chief content officer Randall Lane. He wrote: "If any of my fans want to call a white supremacist... this is the editor of Forbes."

Kanye was temporarily banned from the social media platform until he logged in and deleted the tweet.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the offending tweet had not been deleted, but Twitter has hidden the tweet from public view.

Earlier in the day, the 43-year-old mega producer tweeted a video that showed him urinating on one of his 21 Grammy Awards submerged in a toilet bowl.

"Trust me... I WONT STOP," Kanye wrote alongside the video clip.

The father of four also complained about his recording contract.

"90% of the record contracts on the planet are still on a royalty A standard record deal is a trap to NEVER have you recoup, and there’s all these hidden costs like the ‘distribution fees’ many labels put in their contracts to make even more money off our work without even trying."

According to Showbiz411, Kanye received a $12 million advance in 2012 for his 2013 album Yeezus - that went on to sell just 609,000 copies in 7 years.

Pop singer Taylor Swift, who won 10 Grammy Awards in the past, skipped this year's live telecast from the Staples Center because The Recording Academy wouldn't guarantee she'd win Song of the Year.

A source told Page Six: "Her team called and wanted to be assured that she would win the Grammy. And while it wasn't an explicit demand, they certainly were fishing to find out if Taylor was a winner."

"It was understood in the conversation that if she's not winning she's not coming to the Grammys," the insider said.

Another source added: "It's widely known in the industry that [Taylor's team] called to find out if she was getting a Grammy, they wouldn't tell her, so she didn't go. It's not uncommon [for an artist] to want to know. And everyone knows Taylor loves to win, win, win."

A rep for Taylor told Page Six, "I am on the record: these statements by anonymous, unidentified 'sources' are absolutely 100 percent false and laughable. She just didn't go to the Grammy's. You guys need to calm down."

Insiders say the Academy wanted to fill inclusivity quotas after being accused of racism and exclusivity in the past.

One-hit wonder Lil Nas X, who is openly homosexual, took home two Grammy Awards for his gimmicky rap single "Old Town Road."

18-year-old mumble singer Billie Ellish, who is rumored to be bisexual, won 5 Grammy Awards, including the coveted Song of the Year.

Pastor Troy has something to say about the ongoing Hollywood liberals campaign to emasculate Black men by promoting homosexual males like Lil Nas X.

Troy, who is best known for his 2002 album Universal Soldier, took to social media to express his opinion about the agenda after Lil Nas X wore a hot pink Versace outfit to the Grammy Awards on Sunday.

Nas X won 2 Grammys for his 2019 hit "Old Town Road."

"Welp, Guess I won't be winning a GRAMMY if this what I gotta wear," Troy wrote. He then shared a bonding moment with his 14-year-old son at an Applebee's restaurant.

"They love to push this shit on Our Kids!! The other day @applebees had some punks kissing and laughing eating mozzarella sticks. First Thing My 14 yr old Son said was, 'F*** Applebee's' And it Brought Joy to My Heart!! He sees it... their agenda to take the masculinity from Men, Black Men Especially. Some may say, 'He Making Money!!' Rupaul do too, but I ain't bumping his CD!!! Integrity is Priceless. Y'all Better open that 3rd Eye and let your sons Know What is Real... Or They Ass Gone Be Headed Down That Old Town Road Foreal!!~P.T."

Lil Nas X responded to Troy's comment, tweeting "damn I look good in that pic on god."

A reporter shared a funny incident that took place at the 2020 Grammy Awards on Sunday. Apparently a female celebrity's dress was so hideous that someone made a loud comment about it.

According to Blind Gossip, a famous actress clapped back when a rude guest made a comment about her ill-fitting dress.

"Our reporter was getting ready to interview the celebrity. Her husband was a few feet away talking to someone else. It was so noisy that you really couldn't hear jack unless you were close to someone and even then you practically had to shout.

"We were about to do the countdown wen we heard this woman nearby commenting on celebrity's outfit. She obviously didn't like the dress. She was yelling to the person next to her. 'Oh my god! Look at that! What the hell is se wearing? It's hideous! It doesn't make any sense!"

It was noisy, but apparently not noisy enough. The celebrity heard her and turned around to address the woman directly.

"I know, it's gorgeous, isn't it? Who designed YOUR outfit?"

That shut the woman up. The celebrity began the interview as if nothing happened.

Can you guess the name of the female celebrity?
