Underdeveloped Fetus James Blunt Gets Nominated for Five Grammys

I've lost all faith in the Grammy's judgement in talent. A Grammy award is nothing but a publicity stunt. There is no actual merit in a Grammy award anymore, because hacks like James Blunt and Ludacris get nominated (and most likely win) them.

What a joke! Follow the link to the article at the Grammy site below.


I mean, just look at Blunt. How is he even popular? He honestly sounds like a castrated sheep.

About this entry


Paul McCartney's Jenny Wren got nominated! This is a Good Thing, as it's honest-to-god one of the best songs he's written in years and years and years. Nonetheless, he's up against You're Beautiful and Bad Day, both of which are inestimably offal, and thus will win. Let's see what else I've even heard. One of the riffs in Crazy Bitch by Buckcherry is a complete and shameless rip of Aerosmith's Sweet Emotion. Steady as She Goes by The Raconteurs is pretty catchy. Oh, and I fucking hate The Fray's How to Save a Life.

I didn't even finish reading the list. There are 108 categories for Grammy's? Dear god, you'd have to lie through your teeth to even say it was an honor to be nominated with that many categories. It looks like the Grammy's don't take the Grammy's seriously.

Preachin' to the choir here, man. I personally lost all faith in the Grammys when they nominated George Harrison for Brainwashed (either the whole album or just a track off it, I don't recall) but gave the award to Justin "Look, I posed for this picture with a guitar; that makes me a musician!" Timberlake.

Just for the sake of clarification: George Harrison was a musician, and a great one. Justin Timberlake poses well for teen magazine photo shoots.

Speaking of Harrison and Timberlake, I remember watching a documentary about The Beatles on ABC awhile back. Justin Timberlake was interviewed, for whatever reason (he's a musician, right? ...right?), and he cited his favorite Beatles song as "I Wanna Hold Your Hand." And then he proceeded to sing the chorus. He sang it so poorly, he sounded like a severely brain-damaged toddler.

I suppose the documentary was saved when they interviewed Salman Rushdie, who was extremely well-spoken and didn't try to sing any of their songs. But still. It had Justin Timberlake in it.

>But still. It had Justin Timberlake in it.

Yeah, that is hard to forgive in a Beatles doco. I'm guessing he was interviewed 'cos he says the Beatles were an "influence" on him, right? I mean, he coulda fooled me, but that doesn't stop him from saying so. And Austin: There are brain-damaged toddlers everywhere who don't deserve to be tarred with the same brush as Justin Timberlake =P .

Yeah, it's ALL to do with promotion. Although Blunt with 5 nominations just proves how MOR he really is.
