Week in Review: Social Media Roundup – GRAMMY Apologies, Guitar Hero and Dance Parties
It’s been another eventful week in social media, so in case you missed anything, we’ve gathered up some of the most notable tweets and Instagram photos to get you all caught up!
Pharrell’s Hat Wins the GRAMMYs
Lorde may have been the most-tweeted about celeb from this year’s GRAMMYs, but it was Pharrell’s choice of head wear that was the true breakout star of the show.
Macklemore Apologizes to Kendrick Lamar
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis cleaned house at this year’s GRAMMY Awards, winning Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song.
The duo beat up-and-coming rapper Kendrick Lamar in every category with their wins and Macklemore apparently didn’t agree with the results. To rectify the situation, he texted Lamar an apology and posted it on Instagram, writing, “You got robbed. I wanted you to win. It’s weird and sucks that I robbed you.”
My text to Kendrick after the show. He deserved best rap album… I'm honored and completely blown away to win anything much less 4 Grammys. But in that category, he should have won IMO. And that's taking nothing away from The Heist. Just giving GKMC it's proper respect.. With that being said, thank you to the fans. You're the reason we were on that stage tonight. And to play Same Love on that platform was a career highlight. The greatest honor of all. That's what this is about. Progress and art. Thank you. #grammys

Vin Diesel Busts a Move
