Wasn't the biggest fan of his new album, but given the overall reception it's baffling how he got snubbed. Especially considering these events take popularity into account above a lot of other aspects and Bowie isn't just some unknown.

I see the Grammys have jumped on the Beyonce fan cub. Seriously, what is everybody's obsession with her lately? Its completely unjustified if you ask me. Serriously, they have her nominated for the "Rock performance of the year" award. What kind of shit is that?

I also laughed pretty hard when I saw 25 as a nomination for album of the year. That pretty much proves that being critically acclaimed in music doesn't mean shit.
After I got done laughing, I saw that Justin Bieber's newest album was nominated for a Grammy and I wanted to cry.
