Drunk in (same) love: 2014 Grammys open thread

I’m still feeling some type of way about the Grammys since they gave a platform to a known perpetrator of domestic violence. But I do think they’re worth interrogating as a cultural touchstone reflecting the most popular and commercially successful music of today. That’s a long way of saying: here’s an open thread for your Monday morning! What do you think about last night’s Grammy Awards?

    Speaking of domestic violence and the grammys…Drunk in Love has lyrics that mock the abuse of Tina Turner.

    Agree with the first comment. The fact there has not been widespread outrage over the “Eat the cake, Anna Mae” lyrics is baffling…the two biggest names in music, one of whom is getting a lot of recognition and money by talking about feminism, should not be making joking sexy talk about the horrors that Tina Turner went through.

    Also, Mackelmore is a terrible rapper. Like, he really is just not good at it. I’m confused by that choice too.
