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.

Katy Perry absolutely ROCKED it while attending her first red carpet since splitting with husband Russell Brand just last month.
The 27-year-old looked beyond fabulous in a bright blue bob and a body-hugging teensy black dress by McQ. The Firework singer also had her pal and jewelry designer Markus Molinari in tow for a little added support as she helped raise money for his GiveLove Foundation, which aims “to provide temporary housing solutions and sanitation systems in earthquake-stricken Haiti.”
According to an insider Katy was “very bubbly and happy looking” as she hob-nobbed with party-goers and apparently tried to free her mind of her back-stabbing, SOB of an ex-husband.
Too harsh? I think not.

Nothing screams “lover scorned” like an international pop star in the midst of a very public divorce. Enter Katy Perry and her dirtbag of a husband, Russell Brand (sorry, did I just say that? I mean this divorce has to be his fault, right? Maybe it’s not – okay, I take back the “dirtbag” remark) who’ve now taken their disdain for each other to the cyber level.
According to Twitter.com, Katy has unsubscribed from Russell’s Twitter feed, which is not all that surprising considering the pair don’t even speak face-to-face anymore. A source close to the 27-year-old Perry says that,
She’s limiting those interactions… He’s being so atrocious that she feels like she never really knew him.
While Brand continues to follow Perry in the Twitterverse, he may just be doing it to dig up more dirt for his forthcoming tell-all book about his 14-month marriage to the “Firework” singer.
Oh by the way, I un-take back the previously retracted “dirtbag” comment.
Will you read Russell’s “tell-all” book? Sound off below!

Talk about a power couple!
Since splitting with her “Shagger of the Year” husband, Russell Brand last week, pop star Katy Perry is already rumored to have moved on to greener, slightly “purer” pastures – namely Denver Bronco’s quarterback, Tim Tebow.
According to sources, the “Teenaged Dream” singer’s parents (who’ve voiced their understandably low opinions about Russell, since the split) are trying to set their 27-year-old daughter up with the former University of Florida star by inviting him to be a guest speaker at their Huntington Beach, California church.
Sounds like a pretty good strategy to me!
[Katy's] mentioned on more than one occasion how much she likes Tim… Katy’s mom firmly believes the best cure for heartache is to quickly fall in love again… In her mind, Tebow is the perfect guy for her daughter. He’s handsome, charming, intelligent and above all, a good Christian.

After formally announcing their divorce last month, A-list couple Katy Perry and Russell Brand have had to combat an onslaught of vicious rumors regarding the reason for their split.
For the most part, the couple has chosen to keep quiet about their reasons for ending their year long marriage, but after dealing with tabloid speculation week after week, Perry has finally decided to speak out via her Twitter account saying,
I am so grateful for all the love and support I’ve had from people around the world. You guys have made my heart happy again.
Concerning the gossip, I want to be clear that NO ONE speaks for me. Not a blog, magazine, “close sources” or my family.
I hear ya girl, but ummm, just between you and me – what really happened???

Funny man Russell Brand has filed for divorce from singer Katy Perry, his wife of just over a year. According to court documents, Russell cites “Irreconcilable differences” as his reason for ending the marriage. Can you really have “irreconcilable difference” after being married just 14 months? What – was she not preparing the tea and crumpets just right Russell old boy?
And weren’t we just talking about these two taking time off to start a family like… a minute ago?
Earlier today, Brand released a statement regarding the divorce, which read:
Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.
I don’t get it. If you still adore her and want to “remain friends” – why are you breaking up? I just don’t get these flash-in-the-pan celebrity romances and I guess I never will.

Pop star Katy Perry is known for keeping us guessing in the fashion department, and whaddya know – she’s gone and surprised us again!
The singer recently chopped off her flowing lavender locks and opted for a fresh blonde bob, courtesy of stylist Rita Hazen. According to Hazen,
[Katy] wanted to do something different — an easy, effortless honey blonde… She’s having fun with her hair color now, which I love.
Of course, this isn’t your standard blonde “bob”. Katy wanted something edgier to complement her personality and to achieve this look Hazen kept the ends of Katy’s “a little bit darker” to give it some dimension.
We didn’t want it too solid or boxy… She has to work something that’s cool.
What do you think of Katy’s new look? Do you miss her lavender mane or are you glad she’s shaking things up?

Pop star Selena Gomez may be BFF’s with Taylor Swift, but that doesn’t mean she can’t have a few other A-list gal pals!
At the 2011 KIIS FM Jingle Ball Concert last night, the 20-year-old singer dedicated her song “The One That Got Away” to one of her biggest musical influences, Katy Perry.
One of my inspirations is Katy Perry. She’s been really wonderful and just really good as a person to me I think, she’s given me like two songs of hers and she’s been great so in honor of Katy we wanted to do this song for her.
Check out a video of Selena’s super sweet dedication below!

Grammy nominated artists Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry can now add immortality to their list of 2011 accomplishments – not bad for two gals with pink hair…
Minaj and Perry are slated to become the newest additions to the Mattel family. Production on the plastic likenesses of these two successful songstresses has already begun and sources say that they will be as realistic as possible.
Right, just like how the original Barbie is a “realistic” version of the typical woman? Aaaand I’m getting off my soapbox.
Apparently the NIcki Minaj doll will have, “every signature detail, right down to the tattoo on Nicki’s left arm.” No word yet regarding whether or not the Katy Perry version will have all the Teenaged Dream star’s tats in place.
According to sources, Mattel is only going to make one of each doll and will auction each of them off on December 7th to benefit the Project Angel Food organization.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… Awards Season!!!
That’s right ladies and gentlemen, the 2012 Grammy nominations are in and we’ve got them for you, along with our predictions of who will be taking home the gilded gramophones!
Album Of The Year:
Foo Fighters, “Wasting Light”
Lady Gaga, “Born This Way”
Bruno Mars, “Doo-Wops and Hooligans”
GossipTeen Pick: Adele should get the nod on this one, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Gaga will be walking away the winner of AOY.
Record Of The Year:
Adele, “Rolling in the Deep”
Bon Iver, “Holocene”
Bruno Mars, “Grenade”
Mumford & Sons, “The Cave”
Katy Perry, “Firework”
GossipTeen Pick: SUCH a tough call. For me, it’s a toss up between Bon Iver’s “Holocene” and Mumford & Sons’ ”The Cave”, but with “Rolling in the Deep’s” huge radio success, Adele will most likely be the victor for ROY.
Song Of The Year:
“All Of The Lights” — Jeff Bhasker, Malik Jones, Warren Trotter & Kanye West, songwriters. (Kanye West, Rihanna, Kid Cudi & Fergie)
“The Cave” — Ted Dwane, Ben Lovett, Marcus Mumford & Country Winston, songwriters (Mumford & Sons)
“Grenade” — Brody Brown, Claude Kelly, Philip Lawrence, Ari Levine, Bruno Mars & Andrew Wyatt, songwriters (Bruno Mars)
“Holocene” — Justin Vernon, songwriter (Bon Iver)
“Rolling In The Deep” — Adele Adkins & Paul Epworth, songwriters (Adele)
GossipTeen Pick: Again, a tough call here, but I think “All of the Lights” will emerge victorious.
Best New Artist:
The Band Perry
GossipTeen Pick: If we’re going on outright success, this award should go to Nicki Minaj. The girl is everywhere and has created an incredible brand for herself.
Pop Vocal Album:
“The Lady Killer,” Cee Lo Green
“Born This Way,” Lady Gaga
“Doo-Wops & Hooligans,” Bruno Mars
GossipTeen Pick: Personally, I love ALL of these albums and if it were up to me, I’d give the award to Bruno Mars, just because I love, love, love his sound, BUT my prediction is that the gramophone will go to “Born This Way”.
“Rock ‘n’ Roll Party Honoring Les Paul,” Jeff Beck
“Wasting Light,” Foo Fighters
“Come Around Sundown,” Kings of Leon
“I’m With You,” Red Hot Chili Peppers
“The Whole Love,” Wilco.
GossipTeen Pick: I’m not overwhelmed by the rock category this year. If I had to choose, which I do for the sake of this post, I’d go with Jeff Beck’s ”Rock ‘n’ Roll Party Honoring Les Paul”, just because he’s reDICULOUSLY talented – but truthfully, none of the nominees blew me away this go-around.
“F.A.M.E.,” Chris Brown
“Second Chance,” El DeBarge
“Love Letter,” R. Kelly
“Pieces of Me,” Ledisi
“Kelly,” Kelly Price.
GossipTeen Pick: All I can say, is that if Chris Brown wins, I quit life. But seriously, the nod should go to Kelly Price for “Kelly”.
“Watch the Throne,” Jay-Z and Kanye West
“Tha Carter IV,” Lil Wayne
“Lasers,” Lupe Fiasco
“Pink Friday,” Nicki Minaj
“My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” Kanye West.
GossipTeen Pick: It’s either going to be “Watch the Throne” or “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”. Either way Kanye West comes out a winner, so his ego should be about the size of mainland China by the end of the night.
“My Kinda Party,” Jason Aldean
“Chief,” Eric Church
“Own the Night,” Lady Antebellum
“Red River Blue,” Blake Shelton
“Here for a Good Time,” George Strait
“Speak Now,” Taylor Swift.
GossipTeen Pick: Again, totally underwhelmed by the nominees this year for Country Album of the Year. The safe pick would be to go with Taylor Swift, but hopefully Lady Antebellum’s “Own the Night” will walk away a winner.
The 2012 Grammy Awards air on CBS on February 12, 2012.
