I’m sure the 1.8% of the population that cares about this stuff can keep the entire Music industry flush with cash [/s]
Is that why Moochelle showed up?
No wonder Moochie was such a hit there.
Didn’t have to bother trying to tuck her penis
“Also honored were Irish folk artists Michael FitzPatrick and Patrick FitzMichael for their record breaking single - i got yer back, laddie”
So this is supposed to be some giant step forward for “gay rights”??? Is that what they are trying to say??
Well played sir!
All 5 people that watched it were completely thrilled.
Yes, yes they did.
Why do women always get celebrated and awards for doing actions that men have been doing for millennia?
Not coincidentally, Michelle Obama put in an appearance to raucous celebration. Ba’al is pleased.
Ain’t Affirmative Action wonderful.
Does Alicia Keys have cancer, or is that just her “look”?
I saw a pic of her at the gayrammies. I swear to God, Moochie is looking more and more like a dude every Day.
And if you think this is the first time a sexually confused alphabet person has won a Grammy, I have a bridge to sell you.
Little Richard won a lifetime achievement Grammy in 1993.
Barry Manilow won a Grammy in 1978.
David Bowie has won 5 Grammys.
Melissa Etheridge won one in 1993.
I could go on, but you get the idea. The only difference is that today they are a deviant first, and an artist second.
