To say the 59th Annual Grammy Awards went off without a hitch would be an alternative fact. The award show included performances from Beyoncé and Lady Gaga with the latter suffering through some sound issues. When artists weren’t struggling through their sets, awards were being given out to everyone but Rihanna and Justin Bieber.
The “Love on the Brain” singer was nominated for eight awards, but left Sunday night’s ceremony with nothing but the flask she brought with her. Both Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande had the right idea by skipping out on Sunday night’s show, both walking away with nothing to show for music’s biggest night.
The two singers were collectively nominated for six awards, but were shut out after Adele snatched every award in the pop categories. Justin’s “Purpose” was also up against Adele and Beyoncé for “Album of the Year,” but was pretty much dead on arrival when the nominations were made.
See who won the big categories below and check out the full list here.
Were Rihanna and Justin’s snubs justified?

Being pregnant with twins didn’t stop Beyoncé from going on to the 59 Annual Grammy Awards stage and giving a performance many artists couldn’t dream of giving. Singing “Sandcastles” and “Love Drought,” the singer looked like a flower queen on Sunday night making everyone’s heart stop when she defied gravity while in a chair.

Music’s biggest night is getting too close for comfort and viewers always look forward to knowing who’s sitting next to whom. The seating chart for the Grammys typically lends way to the night’s shadiest moments caught on camera. This year, the seating chart seems to suggest that quite a few big stars will be missing.
Justin Bieber, who was rumored to not be attending the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, doesn’t appear to have a seat reserved. Spots for Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez also have not been seen. The Weeknd, however, will be seated closely to Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Nick Jonas and Rihanna will be seated near each other while Demi Lovato sits by Bee Gees co-founder Barry Gibb, which is fitting as she will be performing the night’s musical tribute to the band.
See a few snapshots of the Grammy seating chart below and tell us your thoughts.

Beyoncé is getting sued again. This time, the lawsuit is over a couple of samples Beyoncé used in her hit song “Formation.” Beyoncé is being sued by Angel Barre, the sister of Messy Mya, a New Orleans rapper and comedian who Beyoncé sampled in her track.
The lawsuit reportedly alleges that Beyoncé used Messy’s “voice, performance and words from his copyrighted works to create the tone, mood, setting and location of the New Orleans-themed ‘Formation’ video and audio recordings,” but didn’t get permission to do so.
Messy was murdered in 2010. His sister has filed the suit claiming that Beyoncé infringed on his copyright by using his work in the song “Formation,” on the visual album “Lemonade” and during “The Formation World Tour. Angel wants $20 million in damages, royalty payments and credits for Messy as a writer, composer, producer and performer. But it sound like there’s more at stake for Messy’s sister than just that.
According to the suit, the case is also about damages to Messy’s “reputation and credibility as an independent artist who worked alone and did not endorse popular singers.”
Listen to Formation below, and listen for the samples in the Messy Mya video named in the lawsuit.

The hysteria was so powerful, Beyoncé’s post is now the most liked photo on Instagram, shattering a record set by Selena Gomez with a Coca-Cola ad in the summer of 2016. That post clocks in around 6.3 million likes right now, but Beyoncé’s share from Wednesday is already at 8.1 million. All is not lost. Beyoncé is still about 15 million followers behind Selena, whose posts are valued at about half a million dollars each.
It’s easy to get lost in a crowd of 8.1 million, but several celebs shared their excitement about Blue Ivy’s new little siblings. Rihanna, Lauren Jauregui, Rita Ora and DNCE’s JinJoo Lee were among the stars who shared Beyoncé’s good news with their followers.
Check out the latest counts on Beyoncé and Selena’s posts below, plus see what other celebs had to say about Bey’s announcement.
