Trent Reznor Tweets Special Message to Grammy Awards
Trent Reznor didn't have the best Grammys night. The NIN frontman first lost out to Vampire Weekend for Best Alternative Album, and then had his epic performance with Dave Grohl, Josh Homme and Lindsey Buckingham cut short due to a curfew issue on CBS. The performance began with NIN and Buckingham running through "Copy of A" from the nominated Hesitation Marks before Homme and Grohl (along with the rest of Queens of the Stone Age) took the stage to perform QOTSA's "My God Is The Sun."
Before the performance had a chance to hit its crescendo, CBS cut to the credits and ads for Delta Airlines and Criminal Minds. Disappointing to say the least for those of us who sat through LL Cool J's dreadful one-liners for three hours. Reznor clearly didn't enjoy it either, and had this NSFW message to send out to the network following the broadcast.
Music's biggest night... to be disrespected. A heartfelt FUCK YOU guys.

Well, at least it was heartfelt.
In other Grammy news, T-Swift needs to work on her "I can't believe I lost Album of the Year to a couple of French robots" face.
Not only did the Grammys bring us yet another great Taylor Swift shocked face moment, but it was also the moment when America looked at two guys in robot masks hugging and collectively went, "awww." Daft Punk not only notched Album of the Year, but the duo also took home Record of the Year for "Get Lucky," Best Pop/Duo Performance for "Get Lucky" as well as Best Dance/Electronica Album and Best Engineered Album for the aforementioned Random Access Memories. Producer Pharrell Williams served as their spokesman throughout the evening.
For those scoring at home, that is five Grammys and zero 2014 tour dates. Let's change that, guys. In the meantime, hug it out.
