Grammys CEO Addresses Marilyn Manson, Louis CK Nominations: “We Won’t Look Back At People’s History”

ABBA and Sun Ra Arkestra were nominated for the first time ever. Taylor Swift and Kanye West are up against each other for Album Of The Year.

In any case, someone went ahead and remade it, and turned it into a jukebox musical, to boot. Best of all, the new Valley Girl has Jessica Rothe, the fan...
