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.

After dominating the music world in 2009, Taylor Swift is branching out in a decidedly unconventional way – by launching a greeting card line with American Greetings. Swift, who recently won four Grammy Awards, is heading for new venues in 2010 and the quirky-cute line of cards is just the beginning.
Says Swift: “My idea of a great song is a song that says how I feel better than I could,” she says. “I feel the same way about greeting cards. I’ve always been fascinated by feelings and how we express them to each other. Getting to write and design these cards is a wonderful experience.”
Check out a preview of her upcoming cards here and tell us what you think of them.

The 52nd Annual Grammy Awards had all three Jonas Brothers together again on Sunday, January 31st. Joe Jonas, sporting glasses, wore a D & G suit while brothers Nick and Kevin wore Gucci and Lanvin respectively. Gotta say – I like Joe’s look – very retro cool.

Newlyweds Kevin Jonas and Danielle Deleasa attended Clive Davis‘ Pre-Grammys party in Beverly Hills on Saturday (1/30) along with brother (in-law) Joe Jonas. Joe bumped into his ex, Taylor Swift at the event and the two finally hugged it out.
Speaking of Swift, she was spotted sitting with Glee star Cory Monteith and confesses to being a big fan of the show (and perhaps Monteith himself.)

Rihanna stepped out to music mogul Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy’s party in Beverly Hills on Saturday (1/30) night. The singer, who always chooses something interesting to wear, was the focus of attention in Viktor & Rolf.

Looking back on 2009, Taylor Swift has some great memories. Rolling Stone magazine caught up with the Fearless singer/songwriter and asked her about her very successful year and what she’s looking forward to coming up. Here is an excerpt that isn’t in the magazine:
Can you tell me about any of the influences we might hear on your next record?
I’m always going to love Keith Urban, I’m always going to love John Mayer. I’m always going to love people like that, who I feel are truly authentic, and that’s not to say that my music will ever sound like theirs, but I’m inspired by people who I feel know exactly who they are, and that inspires me to continue to figure out and inform who I am as an artist.
What I was getting at was when are you going to start rapping? I thought T-Sweezy was one of the highlights of 2009.
Did you really? [Laughs] The CMT Awards asked me, “Do you want to be a part of our intro?” and one of the first things that came to my mind was that I really, really want some excuse to be able to rap and go to the mall and go to those kiosk things and go buy bling and experience rapping in front of a car with spinners for the first time. T-Pain agreed to it and flew to Nashville and we were in a sweltering hot, 95-degree parking garage for an entire day shooting — I will never, ever forget that memory.
Check out the rest of RS’s catch up questions with Taylor in the current issue of Rolling Stone (John Mayer is the cover boy) on newsstands now.
