The Real Injustice of the Grammy Nominations Doesn’t Involve Buju Banton


Using a favorite word of gay rights groups, the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center “condemns” the Best Reggae Album Grammy nomination of Buju Banton, whose lyrics provide sing-a-long anthems for gay murder. But where’s the condemnation for Katy Perry’s “Best Female Pop Vocal Performance” nod for “Hot n Cold”? This is a woman who pretends to be a lesbian to court fans. Nothing is worse! Ahhhhhhh.

And shouldn’t the real condemnation of Grammy voters be aimed at their refusal to nominate Whitney Houston for anything? Injustices all around!
