Ah yes! Espranza Spalding............. I love her. She is like a Norah Jones. Jazzy. Very relaxing music.

She isn't a mainstream pop icon but she IS extremely talented, can play many different instruments and has an amazing story herself.

I actually feel, THIS year, the Grammies gave the best new artist award to the artist who deserved it. Even if she wasn't popular.

That's just my opinion though, and don't tell my girls!

Two videos to get to know her better.

And BTW, Justin actually did an interview with her after the show and congratulated her. My opinion of him has gone up and now I won't feel so horrible when I spend the ticket money to take Corrine to his show in the fall!

Thank you! I knew I had heard of her before, but couldn't connect it to any of her music. I'm so glad that the Beaver hype machine is beginning to run dry. No Grammy & his movie lost to Adam Sandler (a much better singer, IMO)!!!

They hated on Eminem because he's white. I blame the NAACP.

Admit it, you're just jealous that he can get away with wearing his hair like that.

Seriously though, right now, I think his music is geared more for the teeny bopper set; we'll have to wait and see if he can transition successfully or not as he grows older.

I haven't seen his movie, but he's been on CSI (the original one) playing the part of a white supremacist (I think). He's coming back tomorrow on this Thursday's episode. I think he's doing a great job so far with that character.
