I think Adele won because she can sing. She doesn't bring all the dancers and props, she can just stand there, and she just stood there and sang the song and that's it, and this is why she wins.

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter

My intention for the film and album was to create a body of work that would give a voice to our pain, our struggles, or darkness, and our history. To confront issues that make us uncomfortable. I feel it is vital that we learn from the past and reco[...]

James Baldwin

I love America more than any other country in the world and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.

Jennifer Lopez

This night is not about dresses or even the awards. It is about the music, the words and the voices. How they move us, inspire us and touch all our lives. At this particular moment in history, our voices are needed more than ever. As Toni Morrison o[...]


George Michael, I love him. He really means a lot to me.

Kyle Anderson - Marie Claire

"Rihanna has such a history of stealing the show with her flawless style at the Grammys,". "The top was perfect, designed around her tattoos. She is confident and knows what looks good on her as well as what will steal the spotlight.". "She looked p[...]

I've sat down with John Legend, I've sat down with Beyoncé, I've sat down with Alicia Keys, I've sat down with Bruce – our conversations go beyond music. It's part of their fabric.

Activists are guys who get out there like Judge Mathis, Jim Brown, Harry Belafonte – people who actually get out there and put their hands on people.

Ken Ehrlich

Whether it's good or bad, the reality is that celebrities happen to fall into this space of the popular culture. Have they earned the right to be influential in that regard? Probably some have and probably some haven't. But we venerate them and list[...]

Bill Withers

There are activists and there are illustrators. Illustrators are people who write about it. Now is a time of shifting the position of somebody's predisposition.

Ken Ehrlich

And the variety of it is so broad. It reaches so many different people who like music. Anybody watching over the course of three-and-a-half hours, you're going to see what's happening in music now and take a look back too.

Ken Ehrlich

There is one reasonably politically charged moment that you'll see in the show tonight. There's at least one moment and maybe more spontaneous moments that come up. It really is a result of how polarized our country has become in the past year and a[...]

Nancy Pelosi

Did you see those photos of President Obama enjoying flight surfing? I think President Obama is the only person who is happy Obama isn't president.

Cameron Strang - Warner Bros. Records

Prince recorded his most influential and popular music during his time with Warner Bros. and we are deeply aware of our responsibility to safeguard and nurture his incredible legacy. Warner Bros. is thrilled to be able to bring Prince's music to his[...]

Kyle Anderson - Marie Claire

Rihanna has such a history of stealing the show with her flawless style at the Grammys. The top was perfect, designed around her tattoos. She is confident and knows what looks good on her as well as what will steal the spotlight. She looked phenomen[...]

Julee Wilson

I think Katy Perry looked awful.

George Kotsiopoulos

There was no 'oh my god' moment.

Rory Feek

My wife's dream was to make a hymns album. She didn't have the chance to do it until she'd been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, so she'd sing in hotel rooms while she did chemotherapy and radiation. It "doesn't mean anything to me if we win or we don[...]

Lang Scott

We've been crying since this project started.

Paris Jackson

Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine, and I just want to say I love him so much. We can really use this kind of excitement at a pipeline protest you guys. Everyone looks so beautiful, especially Beyonce.

Tom Petty

I thank Leon for that advice.

Adele has more fans who are casual music consumers - if they're going to buy one album a year, it'll be hers. Beyonce's audience are more involved, more active and more interested in what she's doing.

James Corden

There are a lot of brilliant singers there, and no one needs to hear me disrupt such beautiful vocals. My show is basically on in the middle of the night where people only really catch it if they wake up and happen to realize they've left the televi[...]

Ken Ehrlich

He's just got a great attitude, he loves music. And the artists like him.

Ken Ehrlich

I heard that song for the first time in the context of loss – not lost love, but in the context of what would I be without you, someone who's gone? There are people that I would put in there, but it's not about me. It's about the music industry as a[...]

Ken Ehrlich

They both sparked to it and said yes. It's not a song that's written by someone who is in the In Memoriam segment, but it's about it, and it really resonates.

Lady Gaga

I want to more than anything create a moment that everybody watching will never forget. Not for me, but for themselves. That's what I remember about great Super Bowl performances in the past: when you really get lost watching with your family. Watch[...]

We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. – The Carters.

Neil Portnow

With expert harmonies, undeniable groove and a personal charisma matching their on-stage persona, the iconic band of brothers defined not just a genre, but a generation.

Mary J. Blige

She was so strong and silent. She never really said a lot, but when she said something it meant something. ... She planted her own food, she killed her own chickens, she killed her own cows. (She) and my grandfather were Hap and Florence. Southern p[...]

Mary J. Blige

Southern people are really all about love, and that's what I took. I'm born and raised in the Bronx in New York, and as a child I went down South every summer so I saw my grandmother give love. I was raised with 'yes ma'am' and 'no ma'am..

Donald J. Trump

We don't need Jay Z or Beyoncé. We don't need Jon Bon Jovi. We don't need Lady Gaga. All we need is great ideas to make America great again.

Neil Portnow

I think this is beyond sort of the sympathy vote, because sometimes you'll see those kinds of things happen just 'cause people feel sorry about it. But listen to (his) album -- it's quite extraordinary.

Neil Portnow

Artists are feeling emboldened and courageous and just wanting to step out of the predictable boundaries of what they have done. Of course, (Beyonce) is the poster child for that.

Zane Lowe

When you go to browse, you know that there's an album out, but there's also an interview that's just been done that there's attached to that, and there's a playlist to that.

Neil Portnow

Thanks to 'Carpool Karaoke,' we've all been on some incredible rides with James, and The Recording Academy couldn't be more excited to welcome his passion and enthusiasm for music, both as an entertainer and a fan, to the Grammy stage.

Kanye Omari West

I am putting my career, my life, my public well-standing at risk, when I talk to y'all like this. Beyoncé, I was hurt, cause I heard that you said you wouldn't perform unless you won [VMA] Video of the Year over me, over Hotline Bling.

Kanye Omari West

Specifically to black people, stop focusing on racism. This world is racist, ok? Let's stop being distracted to focus on that as much. It's just a f*cking fact. We are in a racist country. Period. Not one or the other candidate was going to instantl[...]
