        I figured Barbra would have done this, she released everything lol

        Peaked at 7 in the US, will be interesting to see if Mariahs can make the top 10. I am sure she will with her fanbase.

          You can call Grammy useless award, but it's still the most prestigious award in the world. Same with the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, a lot of people criticize this list. There is nothing that everyone in the world would like.






          The most prestigious award in the world? .. not even close.

          ... Anyways, I always joke about Grammys and that stuff but in reality I actually think winning a grammy is one of the easiest things to achieve in the music business (if you are a mainstream popstar, of course). even the likes of Justin Bieber, Meghan Trainor, Pitbull and a song like “Who let The dogs out” won Grammys
          .

          90% of mainstream commercial popstars will win a Grammy at one point (and some will even get up to 15 to more than 20 trophies), it’s not excluisve or that hard to win at all.

            Not everyone has that. Most MPG release music for people to forget about. Mariah releases music for eternity. <3
            Sorry but Whitney's the Ultimate Collection is the mother of all compilations. IT is at no 38 in the UK this week and has been charting for 338 weeks now.

              I didn't lie. The Rock and Rock Hall of Shame is an elitist white str8 male dominated mess which might have had some prestigious status in the past but that status has been erased as time progressed (just like rock has been erased from the charts)

                None of these lists actually matter in the real world. 99 percent of people have never even heard of the hall of fame or the songwriters thing.

                  • Anyway, give Katy a few spins pop fans. I recommend Cry about it Later and Tucked for your listening pleasure.
                    And of course, don't forget to "Smile"

                    • This 70s tune still remains one of the greatest mainstream songs ever made and crazy to think the song’s message is more relevant than ever today. Such a beautiful and game changing song.



                      Without a doubt one of my Top 10 personal favorite songs of all time.

                                In the world of music? Yes. Like everything in life, sometimes some choices are weird. In the case of the Grammy, mistakes also happen. But it's not like the Grammy is the VMA lol. One of the easiest things? Then why Britney of her peers has the least Grammy? I will answer in a later paragraph.

                                        That’s the point .. they are so easy to win that even someone like Britney won one (I love Brit , but we never saw Cameron Diaz winning an Oscar right?)

                                        Grammys are not like the Oscars ... for actors it is a quite hard award to win, you don’t see actors winning 12 or 15 Oscars, if anything a few will be lucky to get 1 win in their entire life (very rare those actors who won more than once) and once they win it actually feels like they literally joined an elite club or something that separates them from the large majority of actors who never win one , mainstream names like Adam Sandler hasn’t won an Oscar (Pitbull on the other hand has won a Grammy though) ... even acclaimed actresses like Glenn Close or Icons like Tom Cruise haven’t won Oscars ... It’s an exclusive thing.

                                        .. Grammys are not that way in any sense. It’s a popular easy accolade among the commercial popstars circle. Just name any popstar and you’ll find out that 90% of the pop acts you mention are Grammy winners (even Kylie Minogue who wasn’t even famous in USA).

                                        And the Grammys were more decent and credible before but still they were this cheesy adult contemporary award show for the likes of Barbra Streisand / Frank Sinatra and safe artists ... the real artists and rock revolutionaries were rarely awarded or considered. In fact, the Grammys mean a single sh*t and have literal 0 importance among the Rock community.

                                        • The Grammy's live on snubbing certain albums/ artists when they feel like it. Especially females. How many females have they done this to over the years ?
                                          Mariah with Daydream, Ariana, Katy, Rihanna. They all had 6/7 noms for one album and left with nothing. I am sure there are more examples. It seems to be a power thing.

                                            The comparison with the Oscars is misplaced. If the Grammy only had one category for Best Male Singer / Female Singer of the Year, some people wouldn't have 20 Grammys, only 1, maybe 2. Gwyneth Paltrow has Oscar and Glenn Close does not, same with Grammy, sometimes there are big mistakes.
                                            Regarding the last paragraph, they don't bother selling albums either, where everyone in the pop forum gets an orgasm whether the album is platinum or not.

                                              That’s another thing that makes Grammys cheap. They have like 500 categories

                                              You don’t see the Oscars pulling categories such as “Best Actor in a Sci-Fi film”, “Best acting Duo in a horror film”, “Best actress in a comedy film” or stuff like “Best New Actor” .... They just have the essential categories and simply “Best Actor” and “Best Actress” as it should be.

                                              Grammys should have 15-20 categories at most (where every genre from classical to polka competes) only awarding the essential.

                                              And maybe a few more and that’s it.

                                              That would be really exclusive and hard to win. But of course if you add a bunch categories for every minimal thing then everyone will win

                                                Personally I would value a Guinness world record over a Grammy. A world record is the ultimate accolade in life.

                                                Katy has four as well as being Top Global Female Recording Artist of 2013.

                                                  I am in favor of totally minimizing the category to a few.
                                                  If this year 'music artists' such as BTS, Selena Gomez, or other products are nominated for the Grammy, I will officially break my relationship with the Grammy.
                                                  I was once amused by Halsey, who "dissed" the Grammy, saying fans should vote for the songs. This made the VMA a completely worthless prize.

                                                  • And of course, that categories such as song of the year / album of the year are not commercial oriented. It's the same metacritic that judges the artist and not the album content, which is embarrassing. But fortunately, Grammy is not influenced by this.
