She was robbed for her efforts on “Glitter” and now Mariah Carey is getting revenge with 8 Grammy nominations for “The Emancipation of Mimi.” She is tied with R&B singer John Legend, and general imbecile Kanye West for the lead in this year’s nominations, which were announced this morning in New York.
Carey and Legend were among the presenters who gathered at Gotham Hall to announce the nominees, which included veterans such as U2, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Wonder and other stars such as Sheryl Crow, Coldplay and No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani.
Guess who wasn’t a presenter? You got it, Kanye. The academy would rather have the guy from Nickelback announce the nominees than hear the college dropout opine on his racial injustice cause of the moment. I know if I had the choice over an incoherent Kanye rant and a colonoscopy performed by Muhammad Ali, I would already be shopping for ass pillows.
