Okay, I was wrong about a few of the winners, but I was right about Adele! Hopefully these correct predictions will earn me some street cred. Anywho, here are my most memorable/WTF moments of the 54th annual Grammy awards.
5. Nicki Minaj’s ensemble
While I always appreciate a good religious tribute…and by religious tribute, I mean something similar to “Like a Prayer,” However, I was a little confused as to what Minaj was trying to do. Was this even Nicki or was it her alter-ego Roman?
Minaj called into Ryan Seacrest’s radio show today to explain. “Well, [that religious character I walked the carpet with] is a major part of the story and the movie that I’m writing about one of my alter egos; his name is Roman,” she said.
“Basically, the religious figure is there because he was called on by Roman’s mom [Martha] to rehabilitate him.”
I have a few questions. Was that a real bishop? If so, when will the church be excommunicating him? Can I have an alter ego and commit crimes? Will my alter ego go to jail or will we both go?

4. Chris Brown continues to ruin lives
I’m not happy about this one bit. Who approved not one, but two musical numbers staring the spokesperson for domestic violence Chris Brown?
Along with that, who voted in favor of the spokesperson for domestic violence Chris Brown getting the Grammy for Best R & B album?
This was probably the worst part of the Grammys. I wish Jay-Z was there to beat his ass. No one hurts Rihanna…she’s a national treasure!
3. Katy Perry does a solid for the bitter ladies
As we all know, Katy Perry is going through a divorce. Since us ladies have to stick together, I support Katy in whatever she does…even the blue hair ugh.
Anywho, Katy performed “E.T.” and a new jam titled “Part of Me” while wearing a futuristic latex jumpsuit. Many are saying that “Part of Me” is a huge dig at her ex, Russell Brand.
Here are some lyrics that can help you decide:
“So you can keep the diamond ring/It don’t mean nothing anyway/In fact you can keep everything yeah yeah/Except for me”
Two things: I think Kelly Clarkson may have some competition and o0o0o0oo burn!
2. J Hud’s tribute to Whitney Houston
At first I was hoping for Mariah, Beyonce or even Xtina to be tasked with singing the Whitney Houston tribute.
When I found out it was Jennifer Hudson, I was less than pumped. But I stand corrected. After watching the performance, I was pleasantly surprised at how well J Hud did.
So I must say something…Dear J Hud, I’m sorry for doubting you. Love, Kari.
I thought the performance was simple and classy…just they way it should have been. I also have to give it up to J Hud for preparing so quickly.
Obviously the leading lady of the evening was the “Rolling in the Deep” singer. She swept the Grammys winning a total of six awards and delivered an outstanding performance. How pissed do you think her ex-boyfriend is?
