Quotes from the Grammy’s………

A sampling of quotes from Sunday’s Grammy Awards.


”I just keep thinking back to when you’re in second grade and you sing at your talent show the first time and people joke around and they say, ‘Oh, maybe we’ll see you at the Grammys someday.’ That just seems like an impossible dream. I just feel like I’m standing here accepting an impossible dream right now and I thank you so much for that.” — Taylor Swift, accepting the Grammy for best country album for ”Fearless.”

”You may be the coolest people in the world. This year your industry was saved by a 48-year-old Scottish cat lady in sensible shoes,” said host Stephen Colbert, referring to Susan Boyle.

——

”I love ‘Breathe’ with Taylor (Swift) but I’ve been performing ‘Lucky’ with Jason (MRaz) all over the world in the past year so I’m glad that’s what won.” — Colbie Caillat.

——

”I want to collaborate with Common, who I met yesterday and I freaked out when I met. … he said he wanted to work with me, too, so I’m very excited about that.” — Colbie Caillat on future collaborations.

”If you put this in a machine, you can hear past Grammy winners.” — Jason Mraz commenting on the eco-friendly tuxedo he wore, made from recycled polyester and a tie made from old cassette tapes.

——

”I came to the United States in 1978 with a bag full of dreams, running away from the war in my country, Nicaragua, and here I am. So dreams do come true. I want to dedicate this Grammy to all the people in my country still struggling to make a better life.” — Luis Enrique, winner of the Best Tropical Latin Album.

Michael Jackson’s kids will accept a Grammy for their Father…….

Michael Jackon is receiving a posthumous lifetime achievement award at the Grammys on Sunday.

Michael Jackson might be gone but the awards keep trickling in.

The King of Pop’s two eldest children will take the stage Saturday at the Special Merit Awards ceremony to accept a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for their father, according to CNN.

His daughter, Paris Katherine Jackson, 11, and two sons Prince Michael Jackson II, 7, (also known as Blanket) and Prince Michael Jackson I, 12, (r.) at a memorial service for the singer.

Prince Michael, 12, and Paris, 11, are scheduled to make their first public appearance since the memorial service 12 days after Jackson’s death, according to CNN, which quoted unnamed Jackson family sources.

Jackson’s youngest son, seven-year-old Blanket, is not expected to appear at the awards show.

A video of the presentation will then be shown during Sunday night’s musical tribute to Jackson during the Grammy telecast, according to CNN.

However, not everyone in the Jackson family is happy with the planned presentation.

Katherine Jackson, Michael’s mother, will attend the ceremony, but Joe Jackson, Michael’s father, will not be present due to anger that he was not consulted about having his grandchildren accept the award, according to the report.

Grammy producers and the Jackson estate’s special administrators decided who would take part in the tribute, which doesn’t sit well with all members of the performer’s family, according to CNN.

Despite being left out of his son’s will, Joe Jackson has requested a monthly allowance from his son’s estate, claiming that he depends on his son’s financial support to live.

I still find it hard to believe he’s gone…….What a waste…..
