As evidenced by the rant of ‘Believe’ beau Justin Bieber‘s manager, it’s pretty safe to say that some camps are still up-in-arms about the 2013 Grammy nominations unveiled last night.
Indeed, every year sees some scorned team or artist supporter feel “cheated” due to an absence from the nominations tally (see: Jill Scott’s rant last year), but this year marks a noted difference in that A) the male domination of categories, B) the absence of hip-hop and R&B from major categories, and C) the glaring, 2011-instated removal of “gender-specific” categories.
With only acts who released material from September 1, 2011 to September 30, 2012 eligible for consideration, the wealth of overlooked talent is earning a collective side-eye from many-a-music lover. Just ask fans of Brandy & Monica‘s ‘It All Belongs To Me’, Mary J. Blige, Lana Del Rey, Madonna, and, of course, Nicki Minaj & Justin Bieber…

Oh to be a fly on the wall at the ‘Chateau Marmont’ this week.
For, in what makes the stuff ‘stan fantasies’ are made off, the hotel reportedly played host to a slumber party thrown by ‘Mean Girls’ actress Lindsay Lohan, attended by Interscope sisters Lady GaGa and Lana Del Rey.
Snapped leaving the hotel yesterday, a considerably ‘tamer’ GaGa hinted at the night’s events through a series of Tweets, which she – quite interestingly- deleted soon after publishing them.

Lana Del Rey took her awkward sensibilities to ‘The Voice (UK)’ last night to perform her new single ‘Blue Jeans’.
As an entertainer, the former ‘Miss Lizzy Grant’ is about as effective as Britney Spears on sleep aids–still, she should be commended for her insistence to sing live no matter how much it goes against one’s better judgement.
Check out how this self-proclaimed “studio singer” fared after the jump and sound-off below.
