Grammys 2023 Brings Out the Best in Journalism

by Kidman J. Williams

Every year the Grammy’s seem to usually fail us. Whether it is in music, presenters, or the journalists reporting it. This year… the journalists have taught us a hard lesson in neglect and dishonor that started with the absolute disrespect of a rock icon and legend; the great and always fabulous Bonnie Raitt who won Song of the Year. I’ll get to that a little further down in this article. It will be addressed. I promise you.

I wasn’t going to personally write anything about the Grammy Awards this year. It just isn’t something I think that our readers care about. I’m sure some of our readership watched it, some didn’t, and the ones that did view it… they don’t need a recap of the over bloated affair. Year after year the Grammy Awards seem to be one enormous dick sucking train of who’s who and who was. In this situation, it really was no different.

Numerous publications are all challenging one another to be the first to get their Grammy CONTENT up before the others cash in on the SEO and Google rankings curve. In doing so they have contrived a number of idiotic titles, moronic statements, blasphemous theosophical trends, and made-up stories based on facial expressions in order to best the next.

I may be late getting this up, but at least I feel like I put out something of merit and worth.

These cantankerous cunts really pulled out all the stops when challenging one another’s idiotic content. Let’s start with the Daily Mail. Have you ever heard of the female blues artist Bonnie Raitt? Yeah, we have too! This legendary blues and rock artist took home the Grammy for Song of the Year beating out some of modern music’s heaviest hitters.

Raitt’s song “Just Like That” beat Kendrick Lamar’s “The Heart Part 5,” Beyoncé’s “Break My Soul,” Adele’s “Easy On Me,” Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well,” Gayle’s “Abcdefu,” DJ Khaled’s “God Did,” Harry Styles’ “As It Was,” Steve Lacy’s “Bad Habit,” and Lizzo’s “About Damn Time.”

Was it a surprise? Sure it was. Even the 73 year old Raitt found it shocking. Did the Daily Mail have the right to pose an idiotic and frankly insulting question as to who Raitt was? They headlined a picture stating,

“Shock as unknown blues singer beats Beyonce, Adele and Taylor Swift to win Song of the Year award at Grammy’s.”

I think we all get it by now. They wanted to spark that dirty little buzzword that has made it through our already diluted lexicon; they wanted clicks. It is clickbait. They need it. What you shouldn’t do is dishonor a legend in the music industry in order to get some goldfish sitting in the bathroom during work hours to click your piece.

Raitt isn’t some has been nobody. This is a woman (not a man, a woman) who’s career has not just spanned one or two decades, but five decades worth of hits and memorable moments in the industry. She may have been shocked to have beaten The Queen B and the always beautiful and mediocre music of Tay Tay (Taylor Swift), but it wasn’t an impossible possibility. The probability for a legend to win were good odds.

The odds were so good that she beat them! She took home the Grammy!

Many of the headlines have been shaming the always iconic Madonna whose surgeries can only be described as a botch job from Dr. Moreau’s Island. Trust me, I’m not sticking up for her, I will not deny that she is now crossed with a blowfish and one of the many faces of Lon Chaney.

She fucked her face for the chance to stay young. The genie in the bottle twisted her wish.

We know she messed her face up. Yes, she is unrecognizable. Do we have to dilute what she had to say about trailblazing just because her face could now scare a booger on a hot summer day? We shouldn’t. Madonna has been there, done that, and now she is the elder leader of her pride of lionesses.

Madonna said,

“IF they call you shocking, scandalous, troublesome, problematic, provocative, or… dangerous. You are DEFINITELY onto something.”

People were so taken aback by her appearance that Madonna had to provoke the crowd to cheer when she felt they were supposed to.

Some are now calling the social media frenzy “blatant ageism.” Is it really ageism if the person messes themselves up to the point that legions of fans can’t recognize them? She was still old before the surgeries and there was no backlash. Gracefully allowing age and wisdom is not a bad thing.

You could make an argument about Dolly Parton. Dolly has been forthright and upfront about her many, many surgeries, yet we all still love her. And we love her for it, yet Madonna shows up looking like a cast reject from House of a Thousand Corpses and the world gets turned off of its axis.

The content monsters just keep churning more rancid butter.

The Grammy’s also brought more fabricated religious content whores. These religious zealots of course had to go after Sam Smith and trans artist Kim Petras. Petras became the first transgender to win the award for best pop duo alongside of Sam Smith. Well, you knew that wasn’t going to go unnoticed.

People like (somehow popular) Mark Dice attacked Smith and Petras in his video entitled, “The Grammys: Satanism, Queers, and Uplifting Black People! – 2023 Award Show Analysis By Mark Dice.”

This pious cunt rode the path of Christ right into Hell. He went on to rock the content belittling the family of Brandi Carlile as her wife and family cutely introduced her on stage before she performed.

The beginning of his video, he compares the Grammys to Sodom & Gamora. Hates on Bad Bunny and his bisexuality and illegal aliens all in one sentence, attempts to destroys Sam Smith and his gender identity, and whines about body positivity and Lizzo all within the first two minutes of his video.

I’m not going to say that the Grammy Awards 2023 was a great show. It wasn’t. It was like a 4.5 out of 10.

What I’m getting at is that these so-called journalists (content creators) need to report on news and things that really matter. Instead, we get thousands of videos, articles, and Reddit feeds doing nothing but insulting, degrading, and out right hating on every single artist and celebrity that was at the show. Some even took a stab at Ben Affleck because he made a face like he was bored. Guess what? He proba-fuckingly was! How many of these type of shows has he attended over the course of his career? I’d be tired of it too.

Is any of it news worthy? Anything past the winners and performances, not really. Let us be honest. I see and hear it everyday from people; they want better journalism yet they buy a ticket and jump on the content train over and over again while ignoring solid journalism. All you have to do is read a little. It isn’t hard. Takes less time to read than watch some bullshit video that hypnotizes you with their flashy jump cuts and unfortunate edits.

I could have easily taken my picture at the top of this article and churned out a nasty little piece of yellow journalism about the shock and disdane of Madonna’s face. I could have titled this something like, “Celebrities Appauled at Madonna’s New Face,” or “Madonna’s Face Off,” or maybe even “Bonnie Raitt Disgusted at the Sight of Madonna.” I could have, but that wouldn’t have done anyone any good.

Like I stated earlier, was this show great? No, it really wasn’t. Is it worth your time to watch it on your DVR, Hell no. Is it cool that Madonna messed up her whole face, nope. She made a huge professional error while attempting to make it better by calling ageism. Good luck with that one Madonna. You are still an icon and a legend. Now you have to live with your mistake.

All I’m really saying is don’t confuse content for journalism. If you the consumer are tired of it, stop watching it. It will go away if it stops proving to be successful.
