Now that takes some real guts. To come out against sexual assault? On a show featuring rap and hip-hop?

Yeah, doesn't he realize that contributing to a culture that abhors sexual exploitation/intimidation and is based on merit/talent would put most of those Grammy performers out of business?

On the other hand, it might explain this review:

Meanwhile, even if Kanye was having a blast, the rest of the show featured a surprising amount of very serious performances. Everything — from Usher’s tribute to Stevie Wonder to Katy Perry’s song dedicated to a survivor of domestic violence — led to an incredibly somber night. Beyoncé closed out the show with “Take My Hand Precious Lord” (introducing John Legend and Common’s “Glory”) as a group of background performers held up their hands in a “hands up, don’t shoot” image.







It seems like only a year ago that Obama White House guest Beyonce and Katy were carrying on like this at the Grammies...oh, wait -- it WAS only a year ago:

P.S: "You didn't like my lip-synched, auto-tuned matator ripoff? Well, there wouldn't BE a Beyonce, Taylor, or Katy if there hadn't been a Madonna -- so you can kiss my 56-year old ass!"
