Show transcript
00:00
The Grammys were last night and brother,
00:03
let me tell you the tea is hot,
00:06
it is boiling. There were arrests shade and much more lucky
00:12
for us. We are with pop culture writer and Swifty Camila
00:17
de Jesus to give us the rundown.
00:20
Hi, Camila. Yesterday was pretty chaotic.
00:24
It was kind of insane.
00:26
Yeah, I mean,
00:27
so what happened with Jay Z?
00:28
How did you feel about it as a swift?
00:30
OK, so Jay Z won the Dr Dre Global Impact Award
00:35
which is amazing,
00:36
super deserved. And he kind of talked about the history of
00:40
like the neglect that Black and Poc artists have had with
00:44
the Grammys, which is very valid.
00:47
I don't really know why we're bringing Taylor Swift into it,
00:50
to be honest. He didn't mention her like her and
00:54
Beyonce are on really great terms.
00:55
If you're a swifty,
00:56
you would know they've both been to each other's premier.
00:59
It's like super cute.
01:01
But yeah, all over Twitter people are like,
01:03
oh this is about Taylor.
01:04
It's not, not at all.
01:07
Why are they reaching or what?
01:08
Yeah. So, so he did say two things.
01:12
He said the first thing he said he mentions that Beyonce hasn't
01:16
won album of the year,
01:17
which is a fair point.
01:18
She has 32 Grammys.
01:19
That's crazy. She's the person that has the most and hasn't
01:23
had album of the year.
01:24
It's kind of strange.
01:26
And then he also said some of you don't belong in
01:28
the category which I think rubbed people the wrong way,
01:31
I think. Right.
01:32
OK. Right. Like it sounds like a Kanye situation.
01:36
Like, is it the same situation as if like with
01:39
Kanye that one time?
01:40
No, literally not at all.
01:43
Jay Z was winning an award.
01:44
He had every right to talk whereas Kanye was like,
01:47
that was a whole completely different thing.
01:49
He overtook Taylor Swift's Award and then he was shouting out Beyonce
01:52
It was like Jay Z has a right to be like
01:55
hey, my wife should win this and I think people
01:57
just, yeah, I think because Taylor won,
02:00
it just became a whole thing of like,
02:01
oh, well, should she have even won?
02:03
Which is like, leave the girl alone like please,
02:07
this is a Grammys Taylor's version if you ask me.
02:11
I don't even know what that really means.
02:12
I just always hear it.
02:13
But I guess you touched on that a little bit earlier
02:17
but like what Jay Z mentioned,
02:18
do you think that the Grammys are actually representing people of color
02:22
or like we got a lot of work to do or what's
02:23
going on? We got a lot of work to do.
02:25
I think a lot of what he said is,
02:27
I mean, I agree with most of what he said,
02:30
the chairman, I'm pretty sure of the Academy of Awards or
02:33
Records or whatever came out and he made a whole speech and
02:36
he was talking about like,
02:38
you know, we're doing things the first time ever.
02:40
We have like the first this person ever and that person ever
02:43
And it's so impressive,
02:44
but it just felt like he checking boxes.
02:46
Like at this point,
02:47
they're just trying to have like diversity,
02:50
but they're not giving people the actual diversity that they deserve the
02:53
actual credit they deserve.
02:55
Which is what Jay Z was talking about.
02:57
Look, I'm, I'm gonna lie.
02:59
You want me to wrap up the interview?
03:00
But I want, I want to,
03:02
I have a question because I've heard that the NFL scripted,
03:05
right? And they almost got caught,
03:07
they got, they,
03:08
they diverted and it wasn't scripted.
03:10
Ok, cool. However,
03:11
I've heard a new script that the Kansas City Chiefs are going
03:15
to win the Super Bowl.
03:16
And after the game,
03:18
Travis Kelsey at the 50 yard line is going to propose
03:22
to Taylor Swift. Do you think that is,
03:25
why is the f would they ruin it though?
03:27
Like he won the game?
03:32
He gets the girl.
03:33
It's a love story.
03:34
They asked him, what are you gonna do next?
03:36
Instead of saying the Disneyland,
03:37
I'm gonna go to Disneyland.
03:38
He's like, what do you think as a Swift and a
03:42
pop culture? Like professional expert.
03:46
I love Taylor Swift and Travis.
03:49
I do not think they're gonna get engaged.
03:51
I think fans would be livid if they got engaged right after
03:55
they'd fully be like,
03:57
oh my God, she's taking over.
03:58
Oh, that would,
03:59
I always want them to do it just for the anger,
04:01
the NFL? Oh,
04:02
I'll tell you NFL.
04:04
You just grew up.
04:04
But like this way,
04:05
I'm dude, I,
04:06
I love, love,
04:07
you know, who am I to stand in the way of
04:09
these two kids in love.
04:10
