Daft Punk and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Were the Big Winners at the Grammys
DAFT PUNK were the big winners at last night's "Grammys", taking home FIVE trophies including Album of the Year.
Of course they didn't make any acceptance speeches because they're, you know, ROBOTS, and they were wearing those silly helmets all night.
Old-school singer-songwriter PAUL WILLIAMS gave the speech for the Album of the Year win, because he wrote a bunch of stuff for the disc. PHARRELL WILLIAMS and NILE RODGERS did the talking the other times.
MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS picked up FOUR Grammys, including Best New Artist, Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song. That's right, they spoiled BOTH of KANYE WEST'S chances to win a Grammy this year.
JAY Z came into the night leading the pack with nine nominations, but he only came away with ONE Grammy, for Best Rap / Sung Collaboration. And that had to be bittersweet, because he won it for "Holy Grail", his track with JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE.
See, he was also nominated in that same category with BEYONCÉ for "Part 2 (On the Run)". So he Grammy-blocked his own wife.

Was Justin Bieber's Arrest Exaggerated? He May Not Have Been Drunk or Drag Racing After All
JUSTIN BIEBER'S DUI arrest last week can't be swept under the rug . . . yet . . . but some of the details may not have been quite as bad as you may have heard.
For starters, some "source" tells CNN that Justin blew .011% and .014% in two Breathalyzer tests at the police station. That's significantly below the general .08% legal limit. Since Justin is under 21 . . . that doesn't even really matter.
But still, even Florida's "zero tolerance" law for underage drivers requires a reading of .02%. So .011% is a barely measurable amount.
So maybe Justin wasn't legally drunk . . . but he did admit to also smoking pot and taking prescription meds . . . and he FAILED a field sobriety test.
So he probably WAS driving under the influence, and he probably WAS too impaired to drive.
Also, even though Justin was not charged with speeding, the arresting officer said that was his reason for stopping Justin and testing his sobriety.
However, the head of the exotic car rental company that owns the yellow Lamborghini Justin was driving told CNN that the GPS tracking system in the car indicated that Justin didn't exceed 55 miles-per-hour in the 15 minutes before the stop.
Justin was stopped in a 30 mile-per-zone . . . so even if he WAS speeding, the notion of it being a "drag race" is being called into question. In fact, the car's GPS said Justin was "steady" at between 27 and 34 miles-per-hour on that road.
Kristen Stewart Plans to Shave Her Head and Tattoo Her Skull
KRISTEN STEWART has an interesting item on her bucket list. She says, quote, "I'm definitely going to shave my head before I die. I will definitely tattoo my head while it’s shaved before my hair grows back.
"I'm not sure which part, probably the bottom quadrant in the back. I don't know what the tattoo would be, yet. Still thinking."
