So Much Classier Than Drug Whore Chic

posted by on February 11 at 16:06 PM

You think that if they were throwing out nods to Joni Mitchell they might have also chosen to appreciate a modern artist who shares her modest sensibilities. Nope, Feist lost all her categories to Winehouse. Even the presenter of one of Winehouse’s awards was pissed they were condoning her tabloid lifestyle. When it boils down to it the Grammy award is not about how many drugs you do or the resulting press but about the music you make. That in mind, Feist still should have won. So much classier.

Yeah, I wanted the set to burst with confetti and colors and dancers and jumpsuits and during Feist's song. Alas, nothing...

It was still charming, though. She is classier than the drug whore chic.

I loved the Winehouse dancers, though.

What the fuck ever. Was the award for best sober artist? Feist didn't win anything? Waaah. Who fucking cares? It's a stupid award. Fuck Natalie Cole too. Why doesn't she just go do another classy duet with her dead father?

See, I liked that her performance was stripped down and didn't rely on any of the colors of choreography that her video did. It put the focus on the song, which is where the focus is supposed to be. It was classy.

I did like Winehouse's dancers. Other than the people paid to move around her there really wasn't much going on for her performance though. Feist is a much better songwriter.

Everyone needs to remember that aside from D.C. in the 80's, all of your favourite music was made while on drugs.

Huh? It's not about how classy you are except when it is?

Feist may write some decent music, but she is painfully boring.

Let's not give any more credence to an organization that nominates "Achy Breaky Heart" for something like 6 Grammys including Record of the Year.

The Grammys have long since abandoned the idea of awarding for merit (at least in the major categories). They vote on who puts the most money in the pockets of the voters.

I love Feist's live performances. But that was pretty subdued. Usually she manages to inject a lot more verve while still avoiding over-the-top stage antics.

Feist = Talented but boring as hell.

Boring? You've obviously never been to one of her concerts then. And I'm guessing you don't like Joni either...
