OK, so I must admit I've been remiss as of late in posting but it's so dang frustratin' to write a post in Typepad only to have the system log-in time out and lose everything you've written. I usually find the Grammys a beyond-boring affair but this year was a little better than usual.
They even tried their best to use some integrated brand marketing, asking viewers to go to the Grammy Web site to vote on various polls during the commercial breaks. Lame -- but a valiant effort nonetheless to get people "experiencing" the Grammys rather than just watching them. Half a gold star*
Below, find some exclusive photos of Grammy winner Kelly "Since U Been Gone" Clarkson, Maroon 5's Adam Levine, and freaky-deaky-tressed Fiona Apple at the Sony BMG Grammy party which took place at the Hotel Roosevelt's Tropicana Club in LA (click each picture to get a larger-than-life version).
- Kelly Clarkson cascades down the red carpet in black. Knock 'em dead Hazel Eyes. I dig her...I admit it.
- Maroon 5 fronter Adam Levine has bigger problems than dodging Jess Simpson romance rumors. Most will want to know why he stole one of Bea Arthur's jacket-frocks from the set of The Golden Girls and wore it to the Grammys!
- Fiona's Apple was rotten on Grammy night. Quick, someone hide the steak knives!
- Lastly, what would the Grammys be without Touched by an Angel's Roma Downey. WTF!#$%^&*. It must have been one of those cheeky cherubs that gave Roma the upper brow-lift and botox injections just in time for the big night. Oddly (or perhaps not so oddly), she's currently dating reality TV maven Mark "Survivor/Apprentice" Burnett. How about a new show called Attack of the Killer White Shirt Cuff?
