Grammy Awards & Other Stuff News Pack

Ben Folds Five

Ben Folds Five

The Grammy Awards are tomorrow so I’ve had to put together a few different mini-pieces to help advance that event. These include:

Tegan And Sara accusing their mom of being high.

Melanie Fiona assessing her chances of beating Beyonce.

And the important internet grabber, “what time are the Grammys?”

I did a few other briefs recently, including:

Another SEO-bait story “what time is the Super Bowl?”

And the story of Ben Folds Five encountering characters from Fraggle Rock.

Everything You Need To Know About Tegan And Sara’s Sweatpants

Tegan And Sara

Tegan And Sara

Because music journalism is serious business, I recently spoke to Sara Quin of Tegan And Sara about the U.S. election, gay rights and women’s right.

That wasn’t the only super-serious topic we discussed, however. There was one other vitally important issue we addressed in our conversation — sweatpants.

More specifically, the new Tegan And Sara line of official sweatpants. And whether or not you should wear them in an airport.

The Reasons Why Tegan And Sara Are Pro-Obama (Gay Rights & Women’s Rights)

Tegan and Sara

Tegan and Sara

I recently spoke to the Sara half of Tegan And Sara and when the topic of the U.S. election came up she was quick to explain that she’s on Barack Obama‘s side. This, because, well, the Democrats don’t want to set fire to the gays or enslave the female race. (My words, not hers, for melodramatic interpretation.)

To actually find out what Sara had to say, head over to Huffington Post Music Canada and read the whole story by clicking here.

Also, stay tuned for another investigative T&S story by me soon about… sweatpants. Yep.
