You get the gist of things. Anyway, now for my bit: Remember how last night, Kanye West almost went up onstage because Morning Phase won album of the year? And then he went on that big bitch-and-moan fest about REAL ARTISTS and how they should be respected? And then Twitter jumped in with the “WHO’S THIS BECK PERSON?” stuff? Well, here’s my piece: None of this actually matters, so relax. Seriously, celebrities are basically just imaginary friends for adults. And I should know! I write about them! All that happened last night was that your imaginary friend didn’t get their pudding. Maybe you like Beyoncé more than Beck–or vice versa. Either way, it doesn’t matter, because both parties will still have long, fulfilling, happy lives with or without the aforementioned pudding, and slinging personal attacks at someone over pudding is just childish.
