Boycott the Grammys

I wonder how Kanye West is doing today after being upset by Herbie Hancock — yes, Herbie Hancock (pictured) — to lose the album of the year award at last night’s Grammys. The Grammys have a long list of snubs and slip-ups (thanks Polly for the link), but this one takes the cake. Especially on a night when Kanye stole the show with his back-to-back performance of “Stronger” (with his neon, sample-happy buddies Daft Punk) and an emotional reworking of “Hey Mama,” a tribute to his recently deceased mother. Unless Stars are invited to perform, I refuse to watch the Grammys again. I should have stopped watching a long time ago.
