Grammys 2019: Five firsts at this year's awards

Grammys 2019: Five firsts at this year's awards

Lady Gaga blessed us all when she arrived to the Grammy Awards in a sparkly Celine by Hedi Slimane dress that made her look like a human disco ball-in a really good way.

He then pointed the microphone he was holding at Lady Gaga, seemingly expecting her to respond. Instead, it was 100 percent Gaga - and singer Gaga, not actress Gaga - up on that stage, back to her old tricks of belting out lyrics amid leg kicks, insane faces and whipping her hair back and forth.

When you get hit with a "per my previous email" you know that person has HAD IT. Gaga marveled. "It's a blessing everyday".

Monáe, who was pictured earlier that evening hand in hand with Lady Gaga, changed the lyrics to the song, which was originally gender neutral.

"So I was like, 'I have to get this album done so we can shoot these videos while I was not showing'".

RM, who learned English by watching Friends, added "We'll be back", before reading out the nominations.

Mark Stoops' brother headed to the XFL
It's believed that TV deals are close to being finalized and they recently announced Jeffrey Pollack as the President & CEO. Stoops will serve as head coach and general manager for the still unnamed, Dallas-based XFL team.

Gaga said the the song is ultimately a "conversation between a man and a woman and I think that represents a lot".

Naturally, the Pusha vs. Drake narrative remained a steady throughline, as it likely marked the first time they stood in each other's vicinity since the beef's vicious peak. "Not [about] the shallow s**t, but the deep [things]".

Squad: The singer, pictured with Anthony Rossomando, Andrew Wyatt and Mark Ronson (from left to right), won an award for Best Pop/Duo Performance for Shallow.

New Grammy winners St Vincent (Annie Clark) and Dua Lipa performed a seductive mash-up of Clark's Masseduction (which won Best Rock Song) and Dua Lipa's One Kiss. The singer accepted the latter award reminding the crowd that the record is actually two re-released EPs: "It's not an album!"

This hurt was remedied, or rather balanced out, by Janelle Monae's performance of her thirst anthem, "Make Me Feel", replete with robotic hip movements, futuristic attire, and pussy trousers! That's the kind of influence I hope to someday hold in this world.
