UPDATE: The Grammys 2015 is the awards show that just keeps on giving. Further to Shirley Manson’s brilliant open letter to Kanye West, Beck’s continued graciousness both on and off stage in the wake of getting Kanye’d and Sam Smith celebrating his four Grammy win by eschewing all the big celeb parties and having burgers with the family instead, there’s yet more for you to catch up on.
TAYLOR SWIFT LOOKS DAGGERS AT REPORTER ON GRAMMYS RED CARPET
Entertainment Tonight host Nancy O'Dell nearly got herself into hot water with Taylor Swift on the Grammys red carpet on Sunday night. In a video interview that since has emerged out of the Grammys melee, the pair are seen talking about Taylor’s ombre Elie Saab gown that showed off the singer’s enviably long legs, O’Dell then segues into an attempt at a joke about how good Taylor looked, saying: 'You're going to walk away with more than a trophy tonight, I think, lots of men.' A momentary silence then ensues where Taylor shoots the reporter what many have dubbed a ‘death stare’ before shaking it off and playfully retorting that she’s only going home to her cats. Go, Taylor.
Watch it for yourself below.
KIM KARDASHIAN GOES TO THE AIRPORT IN GRAMMYS DRESS
You’ve got to hand it to Kim Kardashian who made – arguably – one of the most glamorous appearances ever seen at an airport on early Monday morning when she arrived at LAX in full Grammys get-up, including that Jean Paul Gaultier dress and full make-up. (We've actually done the whole catching a flight after a night out thing and, FYI, it wasn't pretty, so props to Kim for styling this out like a pro.)
10th February 2015: After the red carpet moments, awards and dresses (oh, and did we mention the music?) of Sunday night’s Grammys came the morning after - otherwise known as The Fall Out.
So, following another headline-grabbing year from the biggest night in the musical calendar, where are we at now?
SHIRLEY MANSON’S OPEN LETTER TO KANYE WEST
Much has been made of Kanye West’s second stage invasion of Beck on Sunday night as the latter collected the Album Of The Year award, but no-one has expressed their opinion on the matter quite as succinctly as Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson, who penned an open letter to the rapper on her Facebook page. It reads…
Dear Kanye West
It is YOU who is so busy disrespecting artistry.
You disrespect your own remarkable talents and more importantly you disrespect the talent, hard work and tenacity of all artists when you go so rudely and savagely after such an accomplished and humble artist like BECK.
You make yourself look small and petty and spoilt.
In attempting to reduce the importance of one great talent over another, you make a mockery of all musicians and music from every genre, including your own.
Grow up and stop throwing your toys around.
You are making yourself look like a complete twat.
Ps.I am pretty certain Beyoncé doesn't need you fighting any battles on her account. Seems like she's got everything covered perfectly well on her own.
Manson 1, West 0.
SAM SMITH CELEBRATES HIS FOUR GRAMMY WIN
…By going to In ‘n’ Out Burger. Speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Stay With Me hitmaker revealed that he shunned the post-event celeb parties after scooping four gongs and instead, hung out with his family and a little fast-food. ‘I didn’t want to go to any of the celebrity parties,' he said. 'I went to my label’s house in the hills… And I flew my mum and my dad and my little sisters out and we all had some In-N-Out burgers and that’s what we did.' Sam, we like your style.
BECK STILL LOVES KANYE WEST
Of course, the majority of the post-Grammys news is to do with the Kanye-Beck incident. Whilst Kanye later told E! at an after-party that ‘Beck needs to respect artistry and he should've given his award to Beyoncé’, Beck meanwhile, kept it classy. Speaking to People about getting Kanye’d at the Grammys, he said: 'I was so excited he was coming up! He deserves to be on that stage… You can't please everybody. I still love him and think he's genius.’ He added: ‘I aspire to what he does. How many great records has he put out in the last five years, right?’
That’s right Beck; kill ‘em with kindness.
TAYLOR SWIFT & DIPLO BURY THE HATCHET
Diplo may have recently branded Taylor Swift’s fans ‘evil’ in an interview with an American men’s magazine, but he managed to put his irritation behind him - for the Grammys. at least. The DJ uploaded a photo of the two of them together to his Instagram account at an after party. For the uninitiated, Diplo – a former flame of Katy Perry’s – and Taylor’s feud began last November, shortly after Perry and Swift famously locked horns. But with Perry now reportedly back together with ex John Mayer, could this reconcilation be a coincidence? (We think not.)
So, there you have it. Until next year, folks.
