Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar win big at Grammys

Jaden Smith didn't do himself any favors and Ice-T's better half, big booty model "pioneer" Coco Austin had on an outfit better suited for an intimate night with hubby instead of an award show. Most of the information in this article comes from a report by Variety. In the former category, included on the telecast, her fellow nominees included Kelly Clarkson, Lady Gaga and Pink - all women who have sung about sexual assault or worked with Dr. Luke, the songwriter and producer accused by Kesha of abuse - as well as Ed Sheeran. Not only was #Bruno Mars the biggest victor at the 60th Annual Grammys with six Grammys, he even had one of the night's best-received performances with newcomer rapper Cardi B. Nearly immediately Twitter devolved into an even bigger sh*t show than it already is, with some people criticizing the awards for going political and including Hillary Clinton, with others lauding the move as if it were some sort of revolutionary act. He is himself partially Puerto Rican and also has Jewish, Filipino and Spanish ancestry.

Kendrick Lamar played the Lincoln arena 11 days after Mars.

There was an audible reaction, seemingly of surprise, from the audience when Mars was announced as the victor. It is shocking that people are complaining, because Lamar was the second biggest victor with five Grammys, just one less than Bruno.

The 24K Magic singer won all six awards he was nominated for, while Lamar went home with five and Jay-Z, who had the most nominations of any performer with eight, was left empty-handed.

Ozcelik said it was the first time in the association's history that all its executive members had been ordered detained. The TTB ended its statement on Wednesday with the words: "No to war, peace right now".

His wife Beyonce has 20.

Even with a steep loss in viewers, the Grammys are likely to remain the most second-most-viewed awards program. Mars cleaned up in four other categories as well: Best R&B Performance, Best R&B Album, Best R&B Song, Best R&B Performance and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical, making him the year's most decorated artist. He opened the Grammys with a hard-hitting medley that depicted black dancers falling to the floor to symbolize being shot, and won the night's first televised award. Jay-Z went 0 for 8 in his nominations, despite being feted with the Recording Academy's Industry Icons award at Clive Davis' party the night before. He also has three Guinness World Records surrounding the 2015 Super Bowl halftime performance.

He may have to get used it. Moniz had already won a Grammy for record of the year in 2016 for Mark Ronson's Uptown Funk featuring Mars.

That's the nature of the entertainment business, he says - you get the glitz of a red carpet, but also intense, hard work for people working behind the scenes on a performance. Thank you to my band watching.
