So The Grammys Were Handed Out Last Night …

Standard
The 57th Grammy Awards Winners

Look, I’ll be honest here: I actually have an entire screed I want to
tack on here, but before I do that, let’s get to the list of last
night’s Grammy award winners because hey–good for them–am I right?

You get the gist of things. Anyway, now for my bit: Remember how last night, Kanye West almost went up onstage because Morning Phase won album of the year? And then he went on that big bitch-and-moan fest
about REAL ARTISTS and how they should be respected? And then Twitter
jumped in with the “WHO’S THIS BECK PERSON?” stuff? Well, here’s my
piece: None of this actually matters, so relax. Seriously, celebrities
are basically just imaginary friends for adults. And I should know! I
write about them! All that happened last night was that your imaginary
friend didn’t get their pudding. Maybe you like Beyoncé
more than Beck–or vice versa. Either way, it doesn’t matter, because
both parties will still have long, fulfilling, happy lives with or
without the aforementioned pudding, and slinging personal attacks at
someone over pudding is just childish.
