Football players parody pop music in Pepsi commercial

James Franco and Seth Rogen have some competition in the form of Shannon Sharpe and Nick Mangold. The two football players also spoofed Kanye’s now-infamous “Bound 2” music video in Pepsi’s Grammys commercial promoting the Super Bowl halftime show. In the commercial, football players ask why the forever-long Grammys don’t get a halftime show and then take it upon themselves to provide one. Deion Sanders breaks into autotuned song, Terry Bradshaw gives a boot-stompin’ number, and Mike Ditka rides a football-shaped wrecking ball. Maybe a halftime show performed by football stars isn’t a bad idea after all. Check out the commercial below: READ FULL STORY

Miley Cyrus shreds a mean guitar in her big Grammy night performance -- VIDEO

Wait, what’s that you say? Miley Cyrus didn’t even attend the Grammys, much play a song there?

In this, you are correct; though Cyrus did perform a few tunes at Clive Davis’s annual pre-Grammys party, she opted not to show up for the awards ceremony itself. (Getting totally shut out of the nominations can have that effect; see also Gaga, Lady.) The Bangerz singer did, however, spend the night making music — at least in some capacity:

Grammys misspell Cory Monteith's name during In Memoriam montage

cory-monteith-01

The late Glee star Cory Monteith was honored by the 2014 Grammys during the In Memoriam montage. The montage featured a rather unfortunate hiccup: Onscreen, his name was spelled “Cory Montieth.” Admittedly, no other names were misspelled, but generally speaking, the goal of the In Memoriam montage is have zero gaffes. All in all, this was not a shining moment in the history of Garmmy Awards. READ FULL STORY

Grammys: J. Lo saves Adele from hydrangea huckster with a quick disco jerk of the thumb

Adele-Grammy-Crasher

Crisis averted! As if oozing Angelina Leg in a stunning Hefty Sack wasn’t heroic enough, Jennifer Lopez ended up saving Adele from a sure-to-be-obnoxious encounter with Grammys crasher Vitalii Seduik — the same Ukranian TV personality who tried to make out with Will Smith on the red carpet of Men in Black III‘s Moscow premiere and gifted Madonna those absolutely loathsome hydrangeas! Seduik somehow got onstage as Adele came up to accept the Grammy for Best Solo Pop Performance, but luckily J. Lo was there to throw him a scathing “Set Fire to This Pain in the Ass” glare and then shoo him away with a quick jerk of her thumb. Behold an international hero at work in the short clip below.

Rihanna, Jay-Z, and Frank Ocean dominate Twitter conversation on Grammys night

The 2013 Grammy Awards didn’t inspire a record number of tweets — but events like the award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, Rihanna’s scorching solo performance, and fun.’s Best New Artist prize did move plenty of Twitter users to turn to their keyboards.

Twitter reports that Jay-Z, Kanye West, Frank Ocean, and The-Dream’s Best Rap/Sung Collaboration win drove more micro-blogging conversation than any other moment at the Grammys. More than 116,000 tweets per minute were sent as the “No Church in the Wild” team accepted their golden gramophone (and a natty Jay-Z poked fun at Dream for wearing a Boyz N the Hood hat on top of a “Parental Advisory” cap).

Grammys 2013: The night's most 'What Memo?' outfits

So, now that the 55th Annual Grammys have officially ended, it’s time to ask the most important question of the night: Were all of the televised buttocks and female breasts adequately covered?

This year, CBS issued a memo outlining their preferred list of dos and dont’s regarding Grammy outfits. In addition to banning inadequately covered buns and boobs, the pearls-clutching network also advised against such scandalous sartorial cues as “thong type costumes,” “bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack,” “female breast nipples,” and other similarly steamy phrases.

And, of course, the Grammy guests didn’t listen to any of that noise. Below, check out our list of stars who dared to bare at this year’s Grammys: READ FULL STORY
