THE GRAMMYS

In total, I watched about 7-8 minutes of last night’s Grammy award show. In that time I learned several things: -I learned that the “black dress to make a point” movement does not extend to the music industry; -I learned that Alecia Moore (who, for some reason, calls herself “Pink”) can really sing -And I learned that the guy they sent out to sing “Ain’t...
