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.

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.

Death Cab for Cutie has just scored a nice bit of publicity and been added to the soundtrack for The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Their song ‘Meet Me on the Equinox’ has been chosen to be the first single released from the upcoming CD and it will get it’s debut on MTV.com on September 19th – coinciding with MTV’s VMA’s.
“I think that a lot of our songs in general concern a lot of the things the main characters in the books are going through: There’s a lot of stuff about relationships beginning and ending, and the questioning that happens around being in love and falling out of love,” bassist Nick Harmer told MTV News in a recent interview.
In addition to Death Cab, Thom Yorke of Radiohead and Muse have been announced for the movie soundtrack which is out October 20th. The official cover art (we’ve seen this before…) is above.
I just want to say thank god I don’t have to sit through hours of another lame MTV awards show crap to hear the song. So happy it will premiere on the web.
