The victorious Bieber and Carter

I've written two posts on Facebook today:

"Justin Bieber has won a Grammy! In all fairness to the Bieber, he does perhaps deserve it: He is, after all, one of the few people who has made a song that Skrillex has had anything to do with actually sound like music and not a chaotic cacophony of commotion."

The Grammy was for the song "Where Are Ü Now", on which Justin Bieber collaborated with Skrillex and Diplo. I don't really know who Diplo is but Skrillex is someone who, in my estimation, makes music that utterly sucks. While "sucks" isn't language I usually utilize on my blog, "sucks" is the best word that I can use to describe any music I've heard by Skrillex.

In that same Facebook post, I then wrote:

"(And from what I understand, at the Grammys Lady Gaga gave another awesome high-profile performance!)"

Lady Gaga's tribute to David Bowie was well-received. The other "awesome high-profile performance" I was referring to was Gaga's rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner at the recent Super Bowl, which was also well-received.

My other post was:

"Turns out that President Jimmy Carter won a Grammy Award, too - his second Grammy, at that. His being 91 must also list him among the oldest people to have won a Grammy. His wins are impressive; more so, I think, than the "major" categories of awards at the ceremony."

President Jimmy Carter won his second Grammy, in the Best Spoken Word Album category. Carter continues to astound me; I think he's an amazing human being and is fully deserving of any positive awards he receives.

I'll wrap this post up by saying that I never expected to write about Justin Bieber and Jimmy Carter together in the same blog post. It's almost as bizarre as the time I wrote about Mary Landrieu and Pixie Lott.


  1. The Carter thing is a little surprising, just like learning about Bernie Sander's music album

    1. I had heard about Sanders' album somewhere and thought it was a joke of sorts. Now that you've mentioned it, I must look it up!

  2. Where are U now is a JAM. I feel like Diplo is the ONLY reason Justin Bieber is making a comeback.

    1. Any sort of Bieber comeback is impressive, given that people thought his career was finished after all his past antics, ha ha.
