The Morning Mix: The Grammys Liked It And Put A Ring On It
Even though Taylor Swift nabbed the top prize at last night’s Grammy Awards, Beyoncé was the one making history: with her six wins, Bey scored more wins in one night than any other female artist in the fifty-two years of the music awards ceremony. The only person who could steal the show from Beyoncé was her uber-adorable nephew, Juelz, who helped accept “Run This Town” with his uncle Jay-Z. Remember, he’s also the son of the versatile Solange — imagine how talented that kid is going to be when he’s grown up, let’s mix it up:

:: More backstage photo ops for your viewing pleasure. We’re not sure who we desperately want to become BFFs more, Gaga and Elton John or Justin Bieber and Ke$ha. Maybe the four of them can double date once Justin is of age? [Oh No They Didn’t, via Necole Bitchie]
:: Celebrate Lady Gaga’s double Grammy win for Best Dance Recording and Best Dance/Electronica Album with Gaga cupcakes. Or do you little monsters prefer dining on Ms. Germanotta in cookie form? At least the edible version of the Grammy winner doesn’t have ash all over it like the real thing. [The Daily What]

VIDEO REWIND OF THE DAY: It’s too bad Pink didn’t win any Grammys this year, despite giving the bravest (and splashiest) performance of the night with “Glitter in the Air” while literally in the air. So let’s look back to a more triumphant time for the pop star, when she won Best Female Rock Vocal Performance in 2004 for her spunky pop-rock song “Trouble.” In the vid for the song, Pink plays a fiesty, trouble-seeking barmaid—think a kick-ass Coyote Ugly in the Old West. Maybe next year will be your year, babe. Or you could always join a traveling circus. (Who are we kidding? With her aerial skills, she could start her own damn circus to rival Ringling Bros.)
Have a great day, everyone!
