I honestly can't decide. Maybe a little from column A and a little from column B?

Buble won't attend Grammy's

Refreshingly honest:

quote:
"They give away our best traditional pop award at a dinner before the Grammys, so I just think that's bullshit. I think it's absolute crap,'' Buble, 31, said in an interview Tuesday with The Canadian Press.

"Our category is now selling way too many records to be given away at a dinner before, so I'm just not going to show up.''

...

Buble also complained about the pre-show hoopla. He said he sometimes feels "like a dirtbag'' when he walks an awards show red carpet and fans don't recognize him "just because I'm not in the tabloids.''

"You just get pukey with it,'' he said. "It's like, `Enough. No.' ''

So what will he do instead of attending the Grammys?

"I'm going to stay home and watch the (Vancouver) Canucks,'' said Buble, who lives in Vancouver with Blunt -- although a check of the Canucks schedule indicates the team is not playing on Grammy night.

Hanging out in private and away from the spotlight is more their style anyway, said Buble, who has been with "The Devil Wears Prada'' co-star for a year and a half.

"We don't live that lifestyle,'' he said. "Never in the tabloids. Look -- I hate Hollywood parties and I hate most other celebrities, to be really honest with you.''


Whiney:

quote:
"Why should I go to the Grammys?'' he said. "Because I'll lose. ... They might as well have already scratched Tony Bennett's name into the damn thing. I'm not going.''

Most of the 100-plus Grammy Awards are presented during an afternoon ceremony before the Feb. 11 televised gala.

Buble is up for best traditional pop vocal album for "Caught in the Act.''

Bennett is nominated in the category for "Duets: An American Classic.'' Ironically, Buble is on Bennett's album, singing "Just in Time.''

"I'm on that record that I'm going to lose to, and it'll be the second year in a row that I've lost,'' he said. "I'm not going to go.''

Have you seen his "tux" wardrobe? He has one federal blue shiny job with velveteen lapels..I think Krusty lent it him. Perhaps that's why he's shying away.

Love his singing, though.

Slut? Okay.

Eh, I think he's a bit of both. But I don't know if I'd go, if I was up for an award. I find award shows, and ceremonies in general, boring. They're kind of like a giant commercial. I don't think there's a whole lot of entertainment value in them.

I find Michael Buble to be refreshingly whiney with just a hint of smarm.

Whiney. Incredibly, pathetically whiny.

We all know that the Grammy's aren't reputable. They chronical the best of top 40 music, and that's about it. But I find it incredibly whiney to go to the press to whine about it. To stage a tiny protest, most likely for the publicity.

I read the story in the paper this morning and thought, "Gee, someone's being a whiny baby." But I've never cared for Buble much at the best of times.

That's a perfect description of this behaviour!

In one way, it's kind of funny to see someone say what a lot of them are probably thinking. But it also makes me cringe in embarrassment for him.
