The French duo of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, better known as Daft Punk, triumphed over Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Rihanna and countless others by taking home some of the night’s biggest awards. They snatched up Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Dance/Electronica Album and the very prestigious Album of the Year. Not bad for a duo who never showed their faces or spoke a single word during the telecast.

Lorde also capped off a remarkable year by winning Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. Given her impressive haul, one would think Best New Artist would’ve been a foregone conclusion. That didn’t happen. The Kiwi singer wasn’t even nominated in that category. Instead, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis snatch that coveted accolade.

Speaking of the Seattle-based rap duo, they gave the most memorable performance of the evening. They were joined by Mary Lambert and Madonna during a special rendition of “Same Love” that incorporated Madge’s classic tune, “Open Your Heart.” In the middle of the epic collaboration, Queen Latifah officiated 33 couples getting married. The newlyweds included all creeds, colors and sexualities. It was so moving, it made Keith Urban and other audience members cry. Props to the Grammys for taking a very public and very televised stand for marriage equality.

Other notable performances include Miranda Lambert teaming up with Billie Joe Armstrong, Sara Bareilles with Carole King, Katy Perry, Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Hunter Hayes and Taylor Swift. Even though we’ve all seen P!nk suspended in mid-air, twirling around in ropes before I enjoyed her medley of “Try” and “Just Give Me A Reason.” Beyonce and Jay-Z kicked off the marathon telecast with a sexy live performance of “Drunk In Love.” It was captivatingly simple. Check it out below along with other performances and the list of winners.

Attention Walmart shoppers. Beyonce is in the HOUSE!!! In another brilliant publicity stunt, Beyonce visited one of the retailer’s stores in Tewksbury, Massachusetts to buy a physical copy of her self-titled hit album. December 20th marked the first day actual CDs were available to purchase.

In addition to buying her latest LP, she purchased toys for Blue Ivy and $50 gift card for everyone in the store. According to reports, Beyonce paid for 750 gift cards for her fellow Walmart shoppers — totaling $37,500. I wonder if Target is regretting their decision not to carry Beyonce. This is fantastic and free promotion for Walmart.

Bey’s unexpected Walmart visit came on the heels of her album release party at Dave & Busters in New York the previous night. Earlier that evening, the 32-year-old superstar performed her Mrs. Carter Show in Brooklyn. One of those in attendance was none other than Madonna and her daugther Mercy James. “Mrs. Carter crushes the BK with her bad a** show! Girls run the world!,” Madge posted on Instagram. She also shared an adorable pic of Bey kissing Madge’s daughter on her forehead. Check it out below.

Apparently, dancing is all the rage in fashion these days. Instead of models just doing their signature walks, girls are now being asked to shimmy, shake it and grind it on the runway. First Rick Owens showed off his entire collection at Paris Fashion Week using stepping teams, and now Jean Paul Gaultier is getting his groove on. The French designer is best known for creating Madonna’s iconic cone bra back in the 90s during her voguing days.

Speaking of vogue, JPG enlisted Karlie Kloss to show off her skills. While Scissor Sisters’ “Let’s Have A Kiki” played in the background, girlfriend busted out more angles than a protractor. Kloss was facilitating a master class in geometry, for real. Fierce doesn’t even begin to describe the unforgettable moment.

Also busting out in dance was Canadian supermodel Coca Rocha. The former professional Irish jigger (is that a word?) channeled her inner John Travolta for a Grease-inspired segment. From the pompadour to the iconic dance moves, Coco served major Danny Zuko realness. Watch both epic moments below, along with the entire Gaultier fashion show.

Madonna Finally Unveils Her #SecretProject

In: Donovan, Music

I never thought Madonna would ever unveil her #SecretProject. She’s been teasing this mysterious piece of work for months now. Some thought it might be a concert DVD. There was even speculation it had something to do with promoting her boyfriend’s clothing line. Turns out the film is a part of Art For Freedom, the launch of a global initiative to further freedom of expression. The project is in conjunction with VICE and BitTorrent who curated and distributing it respectively.

“My goal is to show by the example of secretprojectrevolution my creative commitment to inspire change in the world through artistic expression,” the Material Mom elaborated. “I hope my film and other submissions to Art for Freedom will be a call to action and give people a place to voice their own creative expression to help fight oppression, intolerance and complacency.” – Madonna

Madonna unveiled the black and white Steven Klein-directed visual guerrilla style, projecting the film on building walls in select cities including New York, Toronto, Berlin and Los Angeles. It’s everything you’d expect from Madge- gorgeously shot, provocative, full of shirtless men, and a tad pretentious. Check out the short film below.

Selena Gomez Banned From Entering Russia

In: Donovan, Music

In the wake of Madonna and Lady Gaga openly defying Russia’s anti-gay law on their soil, the government is making entry into the country more difficult for foreign performers according to the Moscow Times. Russian conservatives tried to file lawsuits against them in the spirit of the controversial law banning the promotion of “nontraditional sexual relationships” to minors that came into effect this summer.

The first one affected by the tougher restrictions is Selena Gomez. The powers that be obviously perceive her as pro-gay, which I assume is probably true. The “Slow Down” singer is forced to cancel two scheduled shows in St. Petersburg and Moscow on September 23 and 25 respectively due to her visa being declined. As someone’s who’s seen her Stars Dance World Tour, they’re missing out. At least from what I can remember ;)
