An Absent Katy Perry Wins 5 People’s Choice Awards Proving People Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Have Choices or Awards

Edited by

Let’s get this over with. Well, the People’s Choice Awards – or as I like to call it, “Wait, who’s that on the stage?” –  were last night and Katy Perry cleaned house, winning five of the coveted (?) awards, including Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Song of the Year for “E.T.”, Favorite Music Video for “Last Night (T.G.I.F.)” and interestingly enough, Favorite TV Guest Star for her stint on How I Met Your Mother. Too bad she didn’t bother to show up. But as we all know, the People’s Choice Awards are on par with the Grammys in terms of relevance and on par with a moderately lavish bar mitzvah in terms of its ability to draw celebrities. Other big winners included Emma Stone, who was actually present to accept her awards for  Favorite Movie Actress and Favorite Comedic Movie Actress and Demi Lovato who beat out pop heavyweights Beyoncé, Lady GagaRihanna and Perry to win Favorite Pop Artist. Full, unnecessarily long list of winners after the jump.

Forbes’ 30 Under 30: Or, Why You Should Probably Step Your Game Up

And just after I had finished going through my quarter-life crisis — looks like I (once again!) picked the wrong day to stop huffing glue.

Queen Adele and King Kanye Reign Over 54th Annual Grammy Nominations

Edited by

The Grammys are perhaps the biggest joke in the echelon of awards shows — only a step above in relevance from the People’s Choice Awards and battling it out with MTV’s Video Music Awards in terms of red carpet atrocities. Purporting to recognize the best of the year in music, the Grammys more often than not turn into a popularity contest where album sales, or career seniority, determine the winner. There have been many egregious mistakes in the past that do not even merit discussion and next year’s ceremony will doubtfully be any different. The 54th Grammy Awards nominations were announced Wednesday night with Kanye West leading the pack with seven and Adele nipping at his Louis Vuitton heels with six.
