Get the story behind Pharrell’s now famous Smokey the Bear-inspired hat from the Grammys!
In our Inside Album of the Year mini-documentary on Random Access Memories, we made a case for not only Daft Punk’s win last night, but also acknowledged the influential role they’ve played in music across numerous genres throughout their comparatively brief history.
Two-and-a-half minutes into the track, Lamar enters rapping about martians, tater tots and wanting to be the first rapper on Mars.
“You got robbed. I wanted you to win. It’s weird and sucks that I robbed you.”
I see where the hip hop community has a point. I don’t think it’s a black or white thing. Eminem has won in the past and nobody was in a frenzy about that.
Behind the Scenes at the 2014 GRAMMYS with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Daft Punk, Kacey Musgraves & More
What goes on behind the scenes at the GRAMMYs? Hear what winners such as Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Nile Rodgers, Kacey Musgraves, Darius Rucker & more had to say, and find out which artist brought the press room to tears.
This year it seemed like the words “And the GRAMMY goes too” were hardly uttered during the night’s live broadcast, leaving plenty of room for the performances, which there were 20 of. All of which we ranked.
“The GRAMMYs actually heard the song and they stepped up right beside me, saying, ‘Hey, we hear you. We get it. We’re with you.”
33 couples made it to the ceremony, officiated by Queen Latifah (a certified minister in California), who pronounced the couples married after a very short ceremony, prefaced by the performance.
Kudos to Kacey Musgraves & Taylor Swift; what were you thinkings to Macklemore, Ryan Lewis & Pharrell’s hat.
