    If you’re a dedicated country music fan, just hearing the names Joey and Rory Feek is probably enough to produce tears streaming down your face. But if, like many others, those names don’t yet ring a bell, you might want to grab some tissues before reading on — or before watching Monday night’s Grammys. You’re going to hear a lot about the couple over the next few days.

    Viewers of the Grammy Awards Sunday night will see a video featuring President Obama, according to White House officials, in which he urges Americans to take responsibility for stopping sexual violence, saying, "Its not okay and it has to stop." The public service announcement represents the latest installment in the White House's ongoing "It's On Us," campaign, which aims to end sexual assaults on college campuses. The administration began the effort in September, with the support of major college sports leagues and prominent celebrities.

    I have to claim responsibility for the newest parody thats now starring as president of the United States on TVs everywhere. If ever there were a Steven Colbert character assigned to play a faux president, Obama would get the nod. You see: hes been nominated for an Emmy now. In a comedy, playing himself, in a tragedy. Seriously. His own incompetence has led to an Emmy nomination. And its my fault. When Obama visited Cooperstowns Baseball Hall of Fame in May, ostensibly to promote tourism, I suggested with mock fawning that they should induct him into the HOF as the...

    It is often pleasant to wish ourselves to a magical world where all is good. It's our "happy place" and I'm sure we all have one. Mine used to include music and I would anticipate "music's biggest night" as a high point in the year. At one time the Grammys was about music. But like MTV, it is not about music anymore, but rather theatrics and agenda. There is a controversy over this year's broadcast about whether it was offensive to Christians. Not that anyone in the Academy of Recording Arts or the industry cares about offending anyone. Christians were...

    LOS ANGELES, January 28, 2014 ( Sunday nights Grammy Awards show was all about shock value. Scantily-clad singers, same-sex marriages set to anti-Christian lyrics, simulated sex acts and a performance full of demonic imagery by pop star Katy Perry who used to be Christian artist Katy Hudson were just a few of the on-stage stunts that seemed custom-designed to offend Christian believers. While most of the industry insiders in attendance cheered the provocative displays, at least a few decided theyd had enough, as one Christian nominee walked out in the middle of the show, and one Grammy...

    At the Grammys last night Queen Latifah officiated a mass wedding ceremonywith some couples heterosexual, some gayfollowed by a surprise song from Madonna. Was it satire? I am a big fan of satirical mockery, even satirical mockery of important things such as marriage. Such satire helps expose self-importance can even help check things such as corrupt or sloppy thinking. But satire is only satire when it comes from a position of weakness or involves self-mockery. Satire from strength is not funny and more akin to propaganda. Hollywood, of course, is neither weak in terms of cultural influence nor particularly noted...

    The 55th Annual Grammy Awards air tonight on CBS. Very much to its credit, the network has struck a blow this year for family viewing by issuing a wardrobe advisory to female attendees encouraging them to dress more like ladies not named Gaga and less like wannabe porn stars. Please be sure, the advisory stated, that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack. And this: Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic. Please avoid sheer see-through...

    Everyone's buzzing about Frank Ocean, Taylor Swift, and Mumford & Sons, but did you know that Michelle Obama and Bill Clinton are also nominated for Grammys this year. They're nominated in the often-overlooked Spoken Word category, which honors poetry, audio books, and other forms of audio storytelling. Michelle Obama, along with producers Scott Crewell and Dan Zitt, are nominated for the audio recording of her first audio book, American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America. "With one nomination," points out the Huffington Post's Julie Miller, "the First Lady has already out-Grammy-ied Justin Bieber...

    Introduction this week of the new video game "The Beatles: Rock Band" reminds us of an odd fact about these music artists who were once widely considered to be the definition of avant garde: the Beatles have often been, really, one beat behind. Believe it or not, up until now music by the Beatles has not been available for sale on the Internet. With "The Beatles: Rock Band," players will be able to download up to 45 songs that they can perform with the Fab Four in such reproduced settings as "The Ed Sullivan Show," Shea Stadium and the Abbey...

    LONDON (Reuters) - Troubled British soul singer Amy Winehouse was arrested on Tuesday as part of an investigation into perverting the course of justice, London police and her publicist said. The 24-year-old, whose husband Blake Fielder-Civil is being held on remand accused of inflicting grievous bodily harm and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, went to a London police station to be arrested in agreement with police. "It was voluntary and pre-arranged," a representative at her publicity agency said, asking not to be quoted by name.

    Those boobs Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake could be back on the air tonight . . . if they make nice. The two culprits in the Super Bowl breast imbroglio have been invited to return to the Grammy Awards ceremony tonight, Fox News reported yesterday. The only proviso is that the singers apologize on screen for their half-time slip-up last Sunday. The former *NSYNC star tore off half of Jackson's black leather bustier and exposed her right breast while they sang a duet during the halftime show a week ago. Neither the Grammy production company nor CBS would comment on...

    After glimpsing more of Janet Jackson than they bargained for during a notorious Super Bowl halftime show, television viewers may miss the singer altogether on the upcoming Grammy Awards broadcast. Jackson, whose breast-baring Super Bowl performance sparked a public furor and federal regulatory investigation, will not be appearing as a Grammy Awards presenter as previously planned, according to reports Wednesday on syndicated TV shows "Entertainment Tonight" and "Access Hollywood." "Access Hollywood" added that the CBS network, which carried the Super Bowl telecast and is broadcasting the Grammys this coming Sunday, retracted its invitation for Jackson to introduce a planned Grammy...
