We don’t know about you guys, but we are SUPER stoked for this weekend’s 2012 Grammy Awards! Adele will be singing for the first time since her surgery, Katy Perry will be singing for the first time since her split and Bon Iver will be singing for the first time period… wait no, they’re not performing because they’re whiny little you-know-whats.
In an explitive-laced interview with Billboard Magazine, Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon says that he isn’t willing to share the stage and perform with another artists at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards Ceremony.
We wanted to play our music, but were told that we couldn’t play,” Vernon said in the expletive-filled interview. “We had to do a collaboration with someone else… We kind of said ‘f— you’ a little bit and they sort of acted like they wanted us to play, but I don’t think they wanted us to play…
While the indie rocker did concede that they were asked to play with some “awesome people”, he couldn’t bring himself to bow down to “the man” and collaborate.
F—–n’ rock ‘n’ roll should not be decided by people that have that job. Rock ‘n’ roll should be the f—–n’ people with guitars around their backs.
Yes. Rock ‘n’ roll should be decided by the people who actually play the music, but the Grammys are decided by the people who run, guess what… THE GRAMMYS! If you’re too cool to play the show, maybe you should be too cool to take home any little gilded gramophones…
Just an idea.
We adore your music Justin, but your high horse is like so tooootally unappealing. Take the Grammys for what they are – a fun night to honor the world of music – and you never know, you might just enjoy yourself.
