Grammy Awards '12

Grammy Awards 2012
Gwyneth Paltrow
Best look of the night.

This year's awards show sucked.
Okay, okay. It didn't suck. But it was very long. And very tiresome. And at one point, I actually wanted to go to sleep. I was super excited for the Grammys and then my excitement started dwindling after each hour of watching the show. This is always the case with me. Get super excited....*next scene*...I'm let down. Gotta remember to always be neutral. Don't expect too much. Ah well.

Anywho, there were some good moments. Like performances by Bruno Mars, Jennifer Hudson's tribute to Whitney Houston (R.I.P.), and Adele. Also, Adele sweeping all of her categories. I'm truly happy for her. A little part of me would've liked for her to have received this adoration and recognition for 19. But that's just me. Still kinda of miffed that My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was snubbed from Best Album of the Year category. He should have won that. But that's just me.

Fashion Time!

There were some high points but there were definitely some low points, too. I mean, loooowwww. Like, bottom dweller low. Like, sadness personified low. As the lovable Laura Bennett of Project Runway: Season 4 once said, "There was a lot of ugly going on..." At one point, I felt embarrassed for this show. Like, why and how did some of these randoms appear on the red carpet? My friend explained that some folks actually pay tickets to attend the show. Then it all made sense to me.

Other Favorite Looks:
Corrine Bailey Rae in Christian Siriano

Kimberly Perry in Moshcino

Kelly Price
Beautiful dress. Not feeling the hairdo.

Taylor Swift in Zuhair Murad
Another case of loving the dress but not the hair.


Not So Favorite Looks:

Fergie in Jean Paul Gaultier
Say one nice thing about this look? Um...I like that it's orange. 

Sasha Gradiva
What. In. The. Hell?

Nicki Minaj in Versace
I feel like her career took a huge hit tonight with that horrible, useless, tacky performance.
And her costume was just pointless.
It tried way too hard to be something.
And it just was not.
