Ladies Night

It was ladies night at The Grammy Awards last night, with Lady GaGa and some country band we’ve never heard of called Lady Antebellum sweeping the board, winning eight awards between them.

The new Queen of Pop won the Gongs for Best Pop Vocal Album for ‘The Fame Monster’ and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and Best Short Form Video for ‘Bad Romance’, while Lady Antebellum won everything else that mattered, including Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year for ‘Need You Now’. It can be confidently asserted that they will never be famous outside of North America, mind you.

‘I need to say thank you tonight to Whitney Houston,’ said Lady GaGa. ‘I wanted to thank Whitney because when I wrote 'Born This Way,' I imagined she was singing it because I wasn't secure enough in myself to imagine I was a superstar.’
