THE BROWN-OCEAN STANDOFF
Chris Brown clapped — but didn’t stand —when Frank Ocean beat him for the urban contemporary album Grammy.
The standing ovation snub between the pair, who brawled last month over a parking space at a West Hollywood studio, was clearly captured in a screenshot posted on Twitter by the site BuzzFeed.
The image shows Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, Adele and several others on their feet while Brown remains seated.
BuzzFeed’s photo of Brown’s diss was retweeted hundreds of times just a few minutes after it was posted.

SKIRTING THE GRAMMY DRESS CODE
Kelly Rowland, in a revealing long black dress, says she just barely skirted this year’s Grammy dress code. Sort of.
"I almost broke the code," the R&B singer joked backstage Sunday.
"If I turn to the side I might," she added to laughter.
Rowland was referring to the memo that CBS, the show’s broadcaster, put out this week asking that participants make sure "buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered."
Rowland’s Georges Chakra dress had portions that are see-through.

ADELE: NO TIME TO BE COOL
Adele says she’s been so busy singing nursery rhymes to her new baby son that "I don’t really remember what’s cool and what’s not."
Still, she was cool enough to add another Grammy to last year’s six-award sweep when she won Sunday night for pop vocal performance for "Set Fire to the Rain (Live)."
That may have to hold her for a while.
She’s set to perform her Golden Globe-winning song from the James Bond film "Skyfall" at the Oscars in a couple weeks, and says she’s been so busy she’s had little time to work on her new album.
"I’m not very far along at all," Adele confessed backstage at the Grammy Awards. "I’ve been out of the loop really."Next Page >
