Let’s face it: there was more cool shit that happened on Grammy Day that didn’t necessarily happen at the Grammys. 1. Whatever Kanye West was up to. 2. The other cool things I saw on Instagram tonight.
Some of it did though. First above: Macklemore, winner of Best Rap Album Grammy, texts Kendrick Lamar that he robbed him of Best Rap Album Grammy, sans emojis unfortunately. Social media tends to agree (about the robbery, not the emojis), amidst many unfair shade tweets against Macklemore.
Anyway, there are lots of Grammy footnotes and other hilarious, random stuff below so let’s get on with it…
