Grammy Committee Bends Over Backward to Appease Lady Gaga

By

If you've ever had trouble figuring out how NARAS determines the silly and seemingly random eligibility rules for the Grammys, it's probably because the committee who forms them doesn't necessarily have to abide by them. Take the case of Lady Gaga, for example. Because she received a nomination last year for her song "Just Dance," she's technically not eligible to be nominated for Best New Artist this year. However, Entertaiment Weekly is reporting that NARAS president Neil Portnow is strongly considering changing the rules so that she would get a shot at winning the prize this year. So much for integrity! [Music Mix/EW]
