Everything We Know, We Learned from These Grammys Stars
LESSON ONE: HATERS GONNA HATE
Just think, while you’ve been getting down and out about the liars and the dirty, dirty cheats of the world, been enjoying Hawaiian vacations, VIP birthday parties and lots of cat-related presents – much thanks to the tremendous success of this sick beat. “Shake It Off” earned Swift three nominations – record of the year, song of the year and best pop solo performance – which is one way to show up the players, haters, heartbreakers and fakers she’s singing about.
LESSON TWO: FOMO IS REAL
“Fancy,” Iggy Azalea’s Grammy-nominated nod to jet-setting, gold and the hotel minibars we usually pass up, is the perfect song to listen to while you’re at the office all day. Staring at your computer. On your third cup of coffee. Dreaming of said travels, jewelry and non-caffeinated beverages.
LESSON THREE: HOOKUPS ARE HARD
Sam Smith’s love letter to the Tinderellas/Tinderfellas of the world begs the question, “Won’t you stay with me?” We recommend singing it to your date that is, if your voice sounds exactly like the Grammy nominee’s.
LESSON FOUR: LOVE YOUR BODY
We listen to Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” on repeat when we’re getting ready in the morning because, well, who doesn’t want to hear “every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top” when you’re shimmying into a pencil skirt? The bubblegum anthem could snag honors for record and song of the year, which is something we’re all about.
LESSON FIVE: ROMANCE ISN'T DEAD
BRB, living vicariously through Chrissy Teigen, who inspired husband John Legend to make the love song to end all love songs. We have a feeling they’ll think of a special way to celebrate should Legend take home a Grammy for best pop solo performance.
LESSON SIX: BUT YOU'LL GET THROUGH YOUR BREAKUP
with this song, a collaboration between duo A Great Big World and that perfectly summarizes your search for closure at the end of a relationship. Heartbreak turns to hope in “Say Something” (“I will stumble and fall/I’m still learning to love/Just starting to crawl”) – and it could even turn into Grammy gold if the ballad snags honors for best pop duo/group performance.
LESSON SEVEN: NOTHING BEATS GIRL POWER
We’d expect nothing less from a duet between and , so it’s no surprise their instant anthem, “Somethin’ Bad,” is the soundtrack to our girls’ nights – or that it received a Grammy nod for best country duo/group performance.
