Kendrick Lamar leads 2019 Grammy nominations with eight nods

Kendrick Lamar and the team behind the “Black Panther” soundtrack have something else to celebrate this week; they now lead the pack with the most Grammy nominations for the 2019 incarnation of the awards show. On Friday (Dec. 7), Grammy award-winner Alessia Cara, famed Apple Music host Zane Lowe, Shawn Mendes, and 2019 Grammy-nominated Janelle Monáe appeared on CBS This Morning to announce the nominees for several of the awards show’s categories.

Leading the pack with a total of eight nominations is Kendrick Lamar and the team behind Black Panther: The Album. Lamar is nominated for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Song Written for Visual Media, and more for his work on the soundtrack for the record-smashing Marvel film. The list of Grammy nominations for the movie soundtrack come less than a day after the album was nominated for two Golden Globes for Best Original Score – Motion Picture for Ludwig Göransson and Best Original Song – Motion Picture for “All the Stars,” Lamar’s now Grammy-nominated song.

The music-from-movies trend does not end there as Lady Gaga earned a total of four nominations for her work on the “A Star is Born” soundtrack. Like Lamar, Gaga is nominated in the Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Song Written for Visual Media categories for the film’s breakout single “Shallow.” Gaga also received a nomination in the Best Pop Solo Performance category for her song “Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin’?)” off her last studio album, Joanne.

Behind Lamar with a total of seven nominations is Drake while producer Boi-1da and Brandi Carlile earned six apiece. Coming in with five nominations are Cardi B, Childish Gambino, H.E.R., Lady Gaga, Maren Morris, producer Sounwave, and mastering engineer Mike Bozzi.

The 2019 Grammy Awards will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Feb. 10, 2019. The show will air live on CBS beginning at 8 p.m. EST.

Garbage Frontwoman Calls Out Kanye West’s Grammy “Disrespect”

Kanye West’s attempt to re-do his “Imma let you finish” from the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards was at first believed to be a joke, but the rapper soon made people realize that he doesn’t have a single funny bone in his body and did it just to spite the true winner of “Album of the Year.” Because, you know, if Kanye doesn’t like it, everyone else doesn’t like it either.

Do we need anymore proof that he’s “America’s Biggest Douchebag”?

For the most part, the vast majority of people have taken a stance against West and his immature antics, but artists and musicians a like have been rather mum about the attack on artistry and the fact that a man who plays a lot of instruments, sings, and writes his own music is not an artist (as opposed to a guy who just press play and auto-tunes everything).

One musician who definitely went on the defensive, not allowing people to just claim “it’s Kanye just being Kanye,” is Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson.

Manson, who with her group have earned seven Grammy nominations, took to Facebook to publish and open letter directed at West and his lack of a conscience and ego the size of the planet.

“Dear Kanye West,

It is YOU who is so busy disrespecting artistry. You disrespect your own remarkable talents and most importantly you disrespect the talent, hard work and tenacity of all artists when you go so rudely and savagely after such an accomplished and humble artist like BECK.

You make yourself look small and petty and spoilt.

In attempting to reduce the importance of one great talent over another, you make a mockery of all musicians and music from every genre, including your own.

Grow up and stop throwing your toys around. You are making yourself look like a complete twat.

PS I’m pretty certain Beyoncé doesn’t need you fighting any battles on her account. Seems like she’s got everything covered perfectly well on her own.”

And we agree.

Guy Makes Documentary About Sneaking into Music Festivals

documentary_festivalAs music lovers, we can all admit that one of our biggest goals is to attend as many music festival, concerts, and events as possible so we can get a taste for every type of a venue a musician gets the chance to play at.

Sadly, money rules and most of our dreams walk when you realize how much it would be to go to as many music events we would like to.

Money and obstacles is one thing that Marcus Haney laughs at. Haney has allegedly snuck into over 50 music festivals since 2010 including some biggies such as Bonnaroo, Coachella, Glastonbury and according to Haney, even the Grammys.

In his full-length documentary, No Cameras Allowed, he documents the last four years in which he traveled across the United States sneaking into the aforementioned festivals. He reveals how he plots to get in and reveals what he does to get into the festivals which include making replica wristbands and sneaking in by security guards like “he owns the place.”

Takes balls.

In a recent interview, Haney explained the premise of the documentary, “The trailer makes the film out to be about a guy sneaking into festivals, but it’s really a coming of age story set in a music world.”

“It’s a love letter written to these festivals, in a way. And it shows them in such a great light that my goal is that people will see my film and then go and experience live music on their own. there’s no way you can translate the live music experience onto film.”

With that, we will agree. Check out the trailer to No Cameras Allowed.
