UPDATED: The Superb Mika Nominated For A Grammy

In addition to being misquoted, my words in this post were taken out of context, chopped to pieces and rearranged to make it sound as if I thought Mika and Shiny Toy Guns weren't decent artists and that I don't like them. This isn't true. I'd let them all scrub my kitchen. Following this, I've entered McRehab and will be back in 30 days a completely changed person. Jingle bells. Paul is dead.

The Grammys -- so relevant! Well, at least they're consistent(ly lame). Kanye West, Amy Winehouse, Justin Timberlake, Fergie... ZZzz.

Here are the wasted Dance category nominations. At least Justice and LCD Soundsystem got nods. And screw Shiny Toy Douchebags -- well, okay, "Rainy Monday" was a jam.
