I enjoy award shows; I like the fashion and the star gazing. I DVR them and fast forward through all the yada-yada-yada. The Grammys are especially entertaining since there are so many musical performances. I always find a new artist I'm interested in.
LL Cool J did a fine job as host. He pushed open the curtain of tension with the way he spoke of Whitney Houston - "there's been a death in the family"
He's so handsome. And solid!
The highlight of the award presentations was Adele - my girl was nominated for 6 and took home 6.
She sounded wonderful and looked divine.
Rhianna gave an exciting performance. She reminds me of a young Whitney. I hope Rhianna stays away from men like her ex Chris Brown. Heaven knows Bobby Brown did nothing but drag Whitney down into his mania.
Then there was all the "old guys" - Bruce, Sir Paul, Beach Boys, Glen Campbell.
Bruce can still jump and his butt looks tight, Paul is a force of nature, and the Beach Boys appear to have been preserved. Perhaps it's all the weed.
Glen Campbell is slowly slipping into the haze of Alzheimers. He's touring with his daughter Ashley at his side. It's touching to see how she looks out for him.
I was struck by how many artists thrive through the years while others are gone too soon.

I'd like to hug Whitney's daughter Bobbi Christina.
Peaceful Journey Whitney
