Music exec slams Grammys; Rihanna, Drake and Kanye do NBA All-Star halftime; "Glee" coming to Verizon Center

By David Malitz

eminemIt's about time someone stood up for Eminem!

- "The Grammy Awards have clearly lost touch with contemporary popular culture." That's according to Steve Stoute a longtime music executive and current CEO of the marketing company Translation, who took out a full page ad in the New York Times bashing the Grammys for not giving Eminem, Kanye West and Justin Bieber enough awards.

- Sunday's NBA All-Star game featured a halftime performance by Rihanna, who was joined by Drake for "What's My Name?" and Kanye West for "All of the Lights." The official video for that song was released over the weekend.

- The cast of "Glee" will hit the Verizon Center as part of its summer tour on June 9. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 4 at 10 a.m.

very on point commenet re Eminem, once you realize the extra z's are for Bizarro...

and Stoute is definitely getting his ROI on that profile-raising NYT ad; paging Diddy for a reprise of the CHAM-POW!
