The 51 St Grammy was over.  the whole 5 days were rained. i mean heavy rain for Los Angeles.  but it was also very exciting and nice to see many artists and my friends in music industry at once.

So, on Feb 8, 2009, at the staple Center in LA. , all the industry celebrities were there..... Music, TV, Movie and all kinds of a fame  were there...   and all artists and managers were wondering there at lobby gathering ..because there were no VIP lounge and every one had to be the same floor.

Among them, some drinking and some eating Mac Donald standing!  (Can you imagine...there were no seats on lobby!!!) ,  other celibates were seeking photographers to be taken..   like Paris..  she was  there for that reason!  with  some well known girls... from TV" girls next door" -playboys girls were waving with smiles..   anyway. it was  so many were there.   So, here is the seen.. among celebrities.. there were real ones and also wanna be ones along with many spectators...  People  were basically wondering who is more famous then others....  

it was just ultimate melting pot..  ZOO!!!!

The Awards show were performed by...   U2  to. Coldplay...Radioheads ,  Jennifer Hudson. Robert Plant and Alison Krauss,Lil Wayne , John Mayer, Adele ,Taylor Swift , Paul McCartney,Jonas Brothers with Stevie Wonder...it was spectacular to witness the many great performances.    And Chris and Rhinnaha didn't performed due to incident the night before after the party.. looks like they had an intense arguments in a car..

Now  the 51st Grammy is over .....

Honestly speaking.. i was quite disappointed ..   first there were bomb threat..   yeah  right ..bomb..   someone want to blow up?   you mean some one were upset?  maybe Chris? cause he couldn't perform? or some other guys who was not nominated?   that's really ridiculous.

SO, there were security issue.. you can imagine a very intense search.  you know some artists  may carry guns...   and  for me. i couldn't bring in the camera  and other belongings ..it was bad like an airport...  Then when the show is over..  we all have to walk back to our limos to 2 blocks..   it wasn't rain, but i was not happy.

Also this Grammy was also  strongly influenced by the industry politics and power structures by the lables.  it was money game was too much to see a showing off  and many were just so pretentious!

I think the Grammy should be scale down and focus for  true musicians and music with an actual music tribute.   . not politics and it power..     I didn't like a smell of a money politics at all.  I am sorry to say ... but this nonsense hype got to be stop!  that is why music labels are dying.  we want to  see more down to the bottom, real music scene and artists....

HELL I DID NOT EVEN LISTEN TO THE POXY SHOW SAT IN FIFTH ROW WITH A PAIR OF HEAD PHONES LISTENING TO AUDIO OF CHECHEN BEHEADINGS TO DROWN OUT THAT AWFUL NOISE THOSE PRIMA DONNAS MAKE ON STAGE...WHAT A NIGHT THE STARS LEFT THE HEAVENS AND ENDED UP IN MY TOILET

hi.. serena.. how are you today? hope you are enjoying weekend<br />
<br />
I loved Los Angeles. it was rained out a whole trip. but i like the city. The Grammy could be more feature musicians and bands.. rather than movie acts for awards hosts.. but coldplay and raidohead , Adele were excellent. Hugs* ^_^

That's way cool that you got to go to the grammy's. I'm sorry you were disappointed with it though.

Typhi Myonis... thank you for a nice comment. i did enjoy the visit though totally rained out all the time.. and very interesting to see how industry is connected to all the artists ... it was a good experience for me. when i visit overseas, i will write the cities and countries.. so, hopefully i can report you more later. Hugs*<br />

hi mytime yes. looks like.. all the good seats ( main floors) are for industry only. I got the tickets from TV network . It is also very expensive to buy too.. I am not sure how to get the tickets without any connection. the whole arena seats are all for the Grammy nominees and their associates.. who got the certificate from the Grammy office. so it is that nature. hope this help. :)

How do people get tickets to those events? Who usually sits way up in the sky scraper seats??? Is that for industry, or the "little people"? I always wanted to know if you could buy tickets to these things and who went aside from the first several rows of big names.

hi flourlady... thanks. Hugs*<br />
