49th Grammy Nominations Get Bliged, Peppered & Blunted

We know you don’t give a shit about who actually wins the Grammys. So vote here instead! Cookie Mountain is currently edging out Boys & Girls for Album Of The Year Gummy. Get involved people! And one vote for Yusuf Islam (are they fucking kidding?!). C’mon this is serious stuff!

Oh yeah, the Grammys. Well, here are the noms for some categories you might find interesting. (Full list here.) Mary J. is at the top of the heap with eight nominations, which doesn’t bother us ’cause she can work it out. Red Hot Chili Peppers clock in with six, and there’s a big pile up of John Mayer, Danger Mouse, Prince, Rick Rubin, Dixie Chicks, James Blunt, will.i.am at five. Don’t worry Gnarls fans; they’re in there with four. And Thom Yorke for Alternative Music Album, a sign that someone at The Recording Academy still has a pulse! (Or remembers when their grandkid recommended OK Computer.)
