Grammy Awards: Live coverage and commentary on Ministry of Gossip, Awards Tracker and Pop & Hiss
Here it is, a lovely February afternoon in Los Angeles, and Staples Center has started to receive its annual parade of pop stars, rock royalty, country cads and sirens, hip-hop sensations -- and those who love, dress, record, market or bankroll them, or any other combination therein. For the latest in all things Grammys -- including information on Lady Gaga arriving like some sort of modern day Cleopatra, please check out The Times' Awards Tracker, Ministry of Gossip, and our music blog, Pop & Hiss. Our coverage will include Todd Martens' live coverage of the pre-telecast awards, occurring now, and the ceremony, which starts at 5 p.m.
It's been a busy weekend in tinseltown -- Arcade Fire kept it real at the Ukranian Cultural Center; Bruno Mars delivered featherweight pop to the glamoratti at Bardot -- so we've been running around, keeping tabs on the Grammy shenanigans. Check out the links below for our take on party patrol so far.
