How Will The Manhunt For Cop Killer Christopher Dorner Affect Grammy Security?

Published March 21, 2013 by gossipzoo

The show will go on, but will the Grammys beef up on extra security?

With big names like Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Johnny Depp all expected to attend Sunday’s Grammy Awards, much attention has been diverted to the ongoing search for Christopher Dorner, the ex-LAPD officer accused of killing three people.

The search, which has taken hundreds of cops to the San Bernardino Mountains and several other states, has no doubt reshuffled the staff at the LAPD, but spokespersons from both the Grammys and the LAPD have remained mum on any major changes in security.

“We have a very significant presence at the Grammys each year and will play an important role in event security this year,” Lt. Andy Neiman told the L.A. Times.

Prior to his killing rampage, Dorner, who was fired from the LAPD in 2008, released a manifesto containing information on who he was planning to kill and celebrities he had admired, including Ellen DeGeneres, Larry David and Christoph Waltz.

According to former LAPD bureau chief John Miller, there is an “anxiety factor” among authorities that is “unbelievable.”

“There will be the Grammys Sunday in Los Angeles, where you will have a major police command post,” he told LAist. “I’ve spoken with people there and their problems are very interesting. One problem is, can they get enough cops to police the Grammys, when they have had everyone out deployed on this?”

A reward has since been offered for anyone with information leading to the capture of Dorner, the LAPD announced Sunday morning.

On Saturday, Charlie Sheen, who was also praised in Dorner’s manifesto, released a video message in an effort to “end this thing.”

“I am urging you to call me. Let’s figure out how to end this thing. Call me, I look forward to talking to you.”

The 55th Grammy Awards, hosted by LL Cool J, will be handed out live on Sunday at 8PM ET on CBS.

Do you think the Grammys should have been cancelled in the wake of the manhunt for Christopher Dorner? Weigh in below.

Grammys 2013: Winners We’d Like To See

Published March 11, 2013 by gossipzoo


With the Grammy Awards coming up on Sunday, I’ve done nothing but listen to the nominees in every category for the past week. I ended up with two hours left over to write essays for two of my classes (see how much we love you?), but I came to a few solid conclusions about some of the artists I feel deserved to win.

Note: I’ll be skipping a few categories that I either don’t follow or have much of an opinion on, so if you feel like some are missing: they are.
Record Of The Year:

Somebody That I Used To Know- Gotye Feat. Kimbra

I don’t really like this song at all, but I have a great respect for everything it did. From the somehow catchy tune to the inventive music video, this track was a very well done overall project. The time it spent atop Billboard makes the argument very easy to formulate as well.
Album Of The Year:

Channel Orange- Frank Ocean

If we go off sales here, my pick won’t look too smart. But “Album Of The Year” has never been completely about sales, so I’ll keep going. I’m a huge Frank Ocean fan, and therefore a little biased, but Channel Orange was done so amazingly that this type of consideration is easy to make a case for. Ocean has some of the most original song concepts that this era of music has seen in a long time, and his vocals are top notch. He writes about things that most artists wouldn’t ever touch, and everything he does just comes across as real. I feel like “Babel” by Mumford and Sons will probably win this category, but the case is definitely there for Channel Orange.
Song Of The Year:

Call Me Maybe- Carly Rae Jepsen

Ok. I know what you’re thinking, but hear me out. “Call Me Maybe” was one of the catchiest (even if you didn’t want it to be), most fun (even if you acted like it wasn’t), and most pick-up line inspiring (even if you were smart enough to NEVER use that line) songs that any of us have ever come across. This song divides people around me into two major groups: those who love it, and those who absolutely hate it- but never change the channel when it comes on the radio. No matter how you feel about “Call Me Maybe”, you have to admit that you absolutely follow along when it comes on. Do I think it will win the Grammy? Nope. In fact, I expect “We Are Young” by Fun. to win that honor, but I sure wouldn’t have a problem if Carly Rae Jepsen’s summer jam spectacular did. Also- 400,087,402 views is a big number.

Cher Lloyd Sexes Up The Friends N’ Family Pre-Grammys Party

Published March 10, 2013 by gossipzoo

Hey there stranger!

Cher Lloyd put her breast foot forward Friday night at the Friends ‘N’ Family pre-Grammys party at Paramount Studios.

The former X Factor contestant wasn’t shy about flaunting her assets in a silk and leather peplum dress with a sheer panel that showed off her black push-up bra.

We’re all for showing off the girls, but maybe make it a little less noticeable.

Black ankle-strap heels, a round clutch and glossy chocolate locks rounded out her sexy look.

Carly Rae Jepsen Parties In Pearls Before The Grammys

Published March 10, 2013 by gossipzoo

Carly Rae Jepsen looked as pleased as bunch to be at the Friends ‘N’ Family pre-Grammys party in Hollywood last night.

Channeling Emily the Strange, the Grammy nominee wore a black sleeveless top, pearl studded leather mini skirt, and chunky black ankle-strap heels.

Carly also left her hair down in loose curls, but kept her blunt bangs straight, as usual.

Just once we’d like to see her do something with her hair!

Maybe tomorrow night she actually will.
