10 TWITTER MOMENTS: THE GRAMMY EDITION

2/13/19
10 Twitter Moments

It's during live events like the Grammys that Twitter really comes into its own. I don't think that I would have made it through the four-hour broadcast if it wasn't for viral memes like this one. Our favorite celebrities – some of whom were in attendance, some of who weren't – also had plenty to say about Music's Biggest Night on the social network, so much so that I decided to dedicate this entire column to their reactions. Gold-plated gramophones at the ready, then, as it's time to tune in to this special Grammy Edition of We Are: The Guard's 10 Twitter Moments, featuring Ariana Grande, Kacey Musgraves, Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, Janelle Monáe, and more.

THIS IS WHAT ARIANA GRANDE HAD PLANNED TO WEAR

The REAL loser of the Grammys?! Ariana Grande's Cinderella dress. But while it may not have made it to the ball – aka the Staples Center in Los Angeles – the stunning Zac Posen-designed gown still got its moment in the spotlight thanks to this impromptu photo shoot. P.S. Can we make Ariana a Disney princess, already?!

 

INTRODUCING YOUR GRAMMY QUEEN, KACEY MUSGRAVES

Kacey Musgraves reigned supreme at the Grammys on Sunday, with the queen of country taking home a grand total of four gongs, including the most coveted of the evening, Album of the Year. It's proof that, for all of their mistakes, the Recording Academy CAN get it right on occasion, and that, ultimately, good music will prevail over the bad. Enjoy this golden hour, Kacey <3.

 

YOU NEED TO SEE CARDI B BACKSTAGE

The Grammys is famous for its after-parties, but it looks like the REAL place to be was in Cardi B's dressing room backstage, where the “Money” artist gathered with friends and family to celebrate after becoming the first solo female to win Best Rap Album. Sidenote: Is anyone else so happy to see Cardi and Offset so happy following the whole cheating debacle?!

 

NICKI MINAJ SAYS THAT SHE WAS “BULLIED” BY GRAMMY PRODUCERS

SPILL THAT TEA, GIRL!

 

ANDERSON .PAAK'S KID WON THE RED CARPET

Make no mistake about it: Anderson .Paak's 7-year-old son Soul Rasheed officially won the Grammy red carpet on Sunday! This kid is a star if I've ever seen one! Congratulations to Andy, too, whose We Are: The Guard-approved song “Bubblin'” tied with Jay Rock's “King's Dead” for the coveted Best Rap Performance gong at the weekend!

 

P!NK HAD THE BEST RESPONSE TO LOSING

She may have missed out on a Grammy, but unbothered legend P!nk had a far, far better award waiting for her back home: Her babies! Priorities, people, priorities! Best Mom > Best Pop Vocal Album!

 

Thanks Kids:) my favorite kind of award

ST. VINCENT AND DUA LIPA WERE TOO SEXY FOR TELEVISION

Am I the only one who hasn't stopped thinking about the sexual tension between St. Vincent and Dua Lipa on Sunday?! *Fans self* Everything about their “MasseductionOne Kiss” medley performance was way too hot for public consumption, not that I'm complaining!

 

JANELLE MONÁE. THAT'S IT. THAT'S THE TITLE

It goes without saying that women “stepped up” at this year Grammys, none more so than Janelle Monáe, whose performance of “Make Me Feel” was undoubtedly the highlight of the evening! No, really – give me Janelle playing electric guitar in a latex bodysuit over Post Malone and Red Hot Chili Peppers any day! P.S. Oh, hi, Lady Gaga!

 

J. COLE CONGRATULATES CARDI B AND MORE

What did we do to deserve J. Cole?! Despite missing out on two Grammys, the KOD rapper still took to Twitter to congratulate his fellow hip-hop artists on their wins on Sunday. He also reminded those who lost that awards aren't everything, echoing a similar sentiment to Drake whose acceptance speech got cut off by Grammy producers at the weekend. Be more J. Cole, people!

 

AND FINALLY...

WE MISS YOU!
