The Word: Gossip from the Grammys

Sunday night was so big we’re still talking about it Tuesday (sorry, pope).

The drama surrounds Chris Brown, of course, because it always does. Brown, who already rubbed most people the wrong way after he refused to give a standing ovation to Frank Ocean when he won over Brown for Best Urban Contemporary Album, partied hard at a Hollywood nightclub with Rihanna. TMZ was there to snap pictures of the two of them smoking what appears to be a joint (shocking!) and leaving the club around 3 in the morning.

Taylor Swift used her opening slot at the Grammys to offer a not-so-subtle dig at ex-boyfriend Harry Styles. Before a rousing chorus of “We are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” Swift offered, “So he calls me up and he’s like, ‘I still love you,’” copping a British accent in an obvious nod to the One Direction member. “And I’m like, ‘I’m sorry, I’m busy opening up the Grammys. And we’re never getting back together. Like, ever.’” Burn!

Meanwhile, the ratings for the 2013 Grammy Awards were big, but not big enough to top 2012’s numbers. Why? No dead pop icon. Last year’s record audience was because the awards show was held the day after Whitney Houston’s death. But still, this year’s music-filled awards show delivered 28.37 million viewers.

Missing from Sunday night’s party? Justin Bieber, who sat out the Grammys this year. Instead, the pop star decided to do a livestream Web chat with fans during the awards ceremony, but technical difficulties scuttled those plans. “Livestream is over capacity and not letting me in the room. Give me a second,” Beiber tweeted, letting his frustration show. “Since nothing is working and I’m super-upset, I feel I gotta make it up to you. I should post a new song on Twitter so you can still be excited.” Bieber had decided to forgo the awards show after not receiving a single nomination.
