Behind-the-Scenes Grammys Gossip: Food Fights and Photo Bombs

CelebritiesDirt Bag

With a few notable exceptions, most everything that happened on stage at the Grammys was the most boring thing I’ve ever witnessed. Behind the scenes, though, things were far more interesting.

First and foremost, Taylor Swift definitely thought that she’d won album of the
year (the beginning of “Random Access Memories” sounds as though it
could be “Red”). Watching the Taylor Swift Reaction Face collapse
into a muted supportive look is like watching a sunset in reverse. Heartbreaking. [Deadspin]

Sharon Osbourne had an “explosive confrontation” with Jonah Hill‘s brother, music manager Jordan Feldstein. At the conflict’s height, she threw food at him and dumped a glass of water on his head. Action shot at the link. [E!]

Miley Cyrus photobombed Lorde and then proceeded to go home and play Guitar Hero. She did not watch the Grammys on TV because she was busy with the musical video game. [NY Daily News, Just Jared]

On the subject of photobombs: Did Gandalf Photobomb Taylor Swift? (Evidence for: beard. Evidence against: a wizard always arrives precisely when he means to.) [HuffPo]

Beyoncé could not believe Pharrell’s hat. [Perez Hilton]

Pharrell’s hat has its own Twitter account. [NYDN]

Also, there was so much free shit in the pre-Grammys gift lounge, including metallic trolls (???) clad in shutter shades (???). [ONTD]

On a really somber note, Cory Monteith‘s name was misspelled during the In Memoriam segment, which is sad and pretty disappointing. [Just Jared]

Things have taken a dramatic turn in the land of Bieber: according to the Independent, all charges against the singer will be dropped — save for resisting arrest without violence. Bieber’s lawyers are currently investigating claims that police had “exaggerated” the DUI and speeding allegations; according to TMZ, he was going just 27 mph at the time of his arrest. And so it goes. [Independent, TMZ]

Would you like to see Jennifer Lawrence wear something that isn’t Dior on the red carpet? Well, sorry, too bad — she’s signed a 3-year deal with the fashion house, for between $15 and $20 million. On the plus side, we get to see 3 more years of beautiful J-Law campaigns. [Page Six]

  • Rihanna wore an evening bathrobe to the Grammys pre-show and I wept to not see her on the red carpet. [E!]
  • The singularity approaches: Oprah has taken a SoulCycle class. [NY Daily News]
  • James Van Der Beek and his wife have just given birth to their third child, a daughter. Congratulations to them! [E!]
  • Bachelor Sean Lowe and Bachelor winner Catherine Giudici got married live on television last night. The wedding theme was “grown sexy.” There was a very ugly cake that was built to resemble Sean Lowe’s dogs. [E!]
  • Gisele Bündchen did bikini yoga on a surfboard because of course she did. [E!]
  • Susan Boyle applied for a minimum wage job at her local betting shop after she saw a help-wanted sign in the window. She is worth an estimated $30 million; speculation is that she’d like to be more involved with her community. I think Susan Boyle is my favorite celebrity. [NY Daily News]
  • Britney Spears was photographed wearing a ring on her ring finger; WHAT COULD THIS OMEN MEAN? [Just Jared]
  • Ok, I know I say this a lot, but this time I really mean it — this is the best gossip to ever have existed on the planet Earth: Jeff Koons is a very big fan of The Croods and wrote a letter to someone at DreamWorks saying that it is a “wonderful film” and a “life-changing journey about the first family on Earth.” [Page Six]
  • Rita Ora says there will be an “amazing shock” in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. What could that mean? Are they going to just shoot a life-action The Croods? Here’s hoping. [MTV]
