I've mentioned before how much I like awards season. I like to see the winners accept their award - and I am always hopeful that they speak from the heart and not from some folded up piece of paper.
Well, the Grammy Awards came and went, but not w/out a few incidents:
- Aretha Franklin is peeved w/Beyonce because Beyonce referred to Tina Turner as "The Queen"
- I got a kick out of this. Especially when I read on Bossip that Beyonce's father said that Beyonce did not say "The Queen of Soul" or whatever ...
- Natalie Cole publicly stating that she did not think that Amy Winehouse should have won any awards (Winehouse won five of six nominations). Cole was referring to Winehouse's battle w/drug and alcohol addiction. It's unfortunate that Cole has her Grammy already along w/having had some of the same issues that Winehouse is dealing with; furthermore, I am glad the Winehouse did win - the awards are for her music and not the struggles in her life.
- Oh, and can someone tell Kanye West to 'get off of himself!' I like his music, but his arrogance is indigestible.
