Amy Winehouse, 6
Fall Out Boy, 0
For sure Amy and Kanye deserve it. I mean, who doesn't get excited when the DJ starts spinning out Rehab or any one of Kanye's raps off his album Graduation.
But, so does Fall Out Boy! Pete Wentz and the band should be upset! They were asked to play at the nominations and then didn't get anything! I would be pissed if I was on tour with TOP single releases and then get nothing, while Taylor Swift grabs a nom! seriously?
I went to the FOB concert at MSG and they were unbelievable! The Plain White T's who are also great got a nom and they opened for FOB!
"got bitterness?" he blogged. I would!
What Pete said,
the first reaction is jealousy mixed with a slight sense of entitlement. we just want to be a part of your club...other than the fact that we play the events for you and the right parties all the time...its kind of like being invited to a birthday party and then not allowed to eat the cake.- it shouldnt mean much. (almost) noone in this industry has vision beyond the fear that this week is their last paycheck. we want our songs to be immortal and a statue doesnt do anything to help them live forever...a fifty year old white man shouldnt decide whether we are relevant or not- and he doesn't. we wanted to thank you for making us feel relevant- for sitting up all night to get into our shows and for buying our music...this is not a disappointment, rather a revelation on what is truly important.
Pete, you are so right. So be upset! Keep blogging! and maybe the grammy committee will wake up!
For this time, the grammy's are not Fashionably Right!
