Best New Upset: Best New Artist Grammy Winners Who Beat Out Bigger Acts

Originally posted 02/04/2015 06:20AM

The Best New Artist Grammy is perennial fodder for think pieces, mostly because for every time the award has gone to a new artist who then gains fame and fortune, there's another that's gone to people who – perhaps sadly, perhaps deservedly – had somewhat … truncated careers.

Jimmy Kimmel's "Mean Tweets" segment has become a pillar of his show, offering celebrities a chance to sort-of confront their critics, show the world just how unnecessarily cruel people can be on Twitter and give us all a good laugh in the process.

See Drake Sing Frozen's 'Let It Go' in a Perfect Manny Pacquiao Impression

The Fallon Theory of Virality states that in order to make it big with a musical parody these days, you've got to go high-concept. Just singing a song in a funny voice won't cut it – you've got to introduce at least three disparate elements, ideally from different worlds of pop culture. One of these things should be normal, another should be super-popular and the third should be kind of weird and unexpected.

On Wednesday night at the ESPY Awards, Drake proved he understands these lessons as well as anyone, taking one normal thing (Drake), adding a super-popular thing ("Let It Go") and then throwing in one very random thing (Drake's impression of Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao). The result? Drake sings "Let It Go" as Manny Pacquiao. Does it make any sense? No. Is it hilarious? Yes.

It's Official: Americans Blame Celebs for 'YOLO,' 'Selfie' and 'Twerking'

In times of great distress, it's common for societies to place blame for all their troubles on a group of outsiders. It happened to all sorts of different people through history: members of different ethnicities, followers of minority religions and even those who happen to speak a different language.

Now, it's happening to celebrities.

A new study from coupon website CouponCodesPro.com reveals that Americans are overwhelmingly sick of hearing buzzwords like "YOLO," "selfie" and "twerking," and they know exactly who to blame: famous people.

When asked where they most frequently encountered their aural bugaboos, study respondents were not hesitant to point their fingers towards brunch spots in Beverly Hills, the Lower East Side and Aspen; a whopping 57 percent said they blamed popular musicians and other celebrities for infecting their ear canals with such nonsense.
