Grammy Awards: Eminem gets a best rap album Grammy, Streisand can still make you cry
Comments (5)
February 13, 2011 |  8:30 pm

Eminem's "Recovery" took the award for rap album, and in accepting it Eminem noted the role Rihanna played, as "Love the Way You Lie" brought more attention to the album. "I wanted to thank Rihanna too, to helping propel the record to where it's at now," Eminem said. Then later added: "What up, Detroit? Stand up!"
As for MusiCares honoree Barbra Streisand, my colleague Ann Powers attend her tribute on Friday, and will soon have more to say on her, I imagine, so I'm off the hook. You should be happy with that, as I've always been a fan of Streisand's humor, and I will take Streisand over a bunch of people who pray to her altar (looking at you Manilow), but she sounded good, and if you grew up with "Evergreen (Love Theme from 'A Star Is Born')," then it meant more to you than me.

Eminem is amazing. His Chrysler commercial for Detroit is amazing too. Glad he got the Grammy tonight!

Streisand makes YOU cry maybe...... she makes me sick...every song she sings turns into an ego trip..... if you want to experience true emotion, listen to Patsy Cline....

The Grammy board really needs to look elsewhere.
