Diddy Accuser Started Lawsuit GFM Weeks Ago ... No Mention Of SA Claims 🤔

IT'S BEEN A NIGHTMARE
Instagram / @lilrodmadeit

Diddy's former producer -- and latest accuser -- filed a lawsuit with damning sexual misconduct allegations ... but just a few weeks ago, he fundraised for this same suit, and made no mention of the alleged sexual assault he detailed in his complaint.

Back on February 7 ... Rodney Jones -- aka, Lil Rodmadeit -- posted an IG confessional that flew under the radar before his very public lawsuit hit the press Monday, and the video is an attempt to raise money from his followers to pay for a suit against Diddy.

In the video, Jones lamented over not being able to revel in Diddy's 'LOVE' album's Grammy nominations -- because he claimed he'd been screwed in royalties and publishing ... and alleged that Diddy had refused to pay him what he says was owed.

He goes on to indicate that he plans to launch a legal battle against Puff, and notes that he'll need funds to fight him in court -- and that's where his GoFundMe comes into play.

Two days before this video went up, Rodney had started a GFM campaign -- the title of which reads ... "Help Me Sue Sean 'Diddy' Combs" and it had a $50k goal. In both the description of his GoFundMe and in his clip, he makes no mention of the alleged sexual assault he claims he endured at the hands of Diddy/his associates while working for him.

It's all interesting in hindsight ... ya gotta wonder why he might not have addressed these claims of his a few weeks ago ... when he was literally trying to raise cash for this lawsuit.

As we reported ... Rodney claims Diddy forced him to sleep with sex workers and watch gay porn -- and even floats the possibility that he was drugged at one point ... but the bulk of the complaints online earlier this month were geared towards his business dealings with Diddy.

At the time of this writing, his GFM has only raised $1,500 of his $50,000 goal.

Unclear how Jones was able to pay for his legal counsel but obviously -- the suit was filed.

Diddy has denied all of Rodney's allegations ... as have some others who were named.

Flavor Flav Miley me dio una cachetada por llamarla Gwen... Todo en buena onda

Flavor Flav fue corregido rápidamente por Miley Cyrus cuando accidentalmente la llamó Gwen Stefani y recibió una bofetada en la cara, pero todo en buena onda, dice.

El rapero de Public Enemy habló sobre el incidente en un reciente episodio de "Just B con Bethenny Frankel", donde reveló que se encontró con Miley hace varios años, cuando ella y Gwen aparentemente tenían cortes de pelo similares.

Flav dijo que estaba muy emocionado de conocer a Gwen y corrió hacia ella, pero en realidad terminó hablando accidentalmente con Miley en su lugar.

Él dice que Miley Cyrus actuó super cool y le siguió la corriente durante la conversación, mientras él alababa todo el trabajo de Gwen Stefani. Fue embarazoso para Flavor Flav cuando su amigo le dijo más tarde que en realidad era Miley.

Flavor Flav dice que fue directamente a disculparse con ella, añadiendo, por supuesto, que la conocía y también a su padre Billy Ray, y ahí fue cuando recibió la bofetada en la cara.

Él dice que el momento no creó ninguna animosidad, en cambio, él y Miley se rieron e incluso se reunieron en el backstage de los Premios Grammy de este año.

Pero, Miley no pudo resistirse a darle a Flav un poco de reproche por el error en su identidad.

Se hizo viral un video de su encuentro donde los dos aparecen abrazándose mientras Miley bromea que solía llamarla siempre Gwen, una señal de que esto aún está en su mente.

Flavor Flav Miley Slapped Me For Calling Her Gwen ... All in Good Fun!!!

Flavor Flav got corrected quickly by Miley Cyrus when he accidentally called her Gwen Stefani ... getting a swift slap to the face -- but one all in good fun he says.

The Public Enemy rapper talked about the incident on a recent episode of "Just B with Bethenny Frankel" ... where he revealed he ran into her several years ago when she and Gwen apparently had similar haircuts.

Flav said he got super excited to meet Gwen and ran up to her ... only to find himself accidentally speaking to Miley instead.

He says MC played it super cool, just going along with it during the convo as he lauded her for all of GS' work ... an embarrassing moment for FF when his friend later told her it was actually Miley.

Flavor Flav says he went right up to Miley to apologize, adding of course he knew her and her dad Billy Ray ... which is when he got the smack right across his face.

He says the moment didn't create any animosity ... instead, he and Miley laughed off the moment, and the two even met up backstage of the Grammy Awards this year.

But, Miley couldn't resist giving Flav a little bit of guff over the past mistaken identity.

A video went viral from their meetup which showed the two hugging it out while Miley joked he always used to call him Gwen ... so, clearly this is still stuck in her mind.

Glad to see things are good between Flav and Miley ... but, he may want to take his signature shades off to avoid future mix-ups.

DARIUS RUCKER LA MUSICA COUNTRY DE BEYONCÉ ES GENIAL ¡Espero que gane el AOTY!

"bien por ella"
BACKGRID

Darius Rucker es un gran fan de que Beyoncé pruebe otros géneros, dice que le encanta su nueva música country y espera que finalmente le consiga el codiciado Grammy al Álbum del Año.

El legendario cantautor -que es uno de los pocos artistas negros que ha irrumpido con éxito en el country- estaba en el aeropuerto de Los Ángeles el miércoles cuando un fotógrafo le preguntó acerca de la última oferta de Beyoncé, "Texas Hold 'Em".

Darius es bastante breve y preciso en sus comentarios. Dice que le gusta el nuevo giro de la Diva.

Dice que "THE" es una gran canción e incluso le desea buena suerte a su manera sobre la perspectiva de la incursión de Beyoncé en la música country finalmente le gana un premio Grammy por Álbum del Año, algo que todavía falta dentro de los logros de Bey.

"ella merece mucho más"
CBS

Recordemos que Jay-Z hizo un gran alboroto sobre la ausencia de Beyoncé durante su discurso en los Grammys de este mes, por lo que mucha gente se pregunta si un álbum de country podría cambiar las cosas.

Por supuesto, Beyoncé va a tener que vencer a Taylor Swift -entre otros- para ganar el gran premio (Artista del Año). Taylor también tiene un nuevo álbum y Darius se refirió a ella.

El camarógrafo le pregunta a Darius si cree que Taylor debe volver al country. A lo que responde que Tay Tay debería sacar el tipo de música que quiera, lo mismo para Beyoncé.

Una última cosa que Darius abordó aquí sobre Bey y el country, son los comentarios feos de John Schneider de la semana pasada, cuando hizo comparaciones con un perro que marca su territorio.

TIENEN QUE DEJAR SU HUELLA

Al igual que muchas personas, está de acuerdo en que las palabras de John estaban impregnadas de un trasfondo racista, y dice que la música country no pertenece a un grupo pequeño. Sobre la cuestión de si Beyoncé es un "pararrayos", Darius se burla de esa idea también en esta entrevista.

Resumiendo, Darius está apoyando los deseos de Beyoncé de entrar en la música country.

Aquí está la esperanza de que su consigna calme a los haters, porque parece que hay un montón de ellos, y a los ojos de Darius, están haciendo un gran alboroto por nada.

Darius Rucker Beyoncé's Country Music Is Great ... I Hope She Wins AOTY!!!

GOOD FOR HER !!!
BACKGRID

Darius Rucker is a big fan of Beyoncé joining his genre ... saying he's loving her new country music, and hopes it finally lands her a coveted Album of the Year Grammy.

The legendary singer-songwriter -- who's one of the few Black artists who's broken through into country successfully -- was at LAX Wednesday when a photog asked him about Beyoncé's latest offering, "Texas Hold 'Em."

Darius is fairly brief and succinct in his review -- but he's clear ... he's digging Bey's twang.

He says 'THE' is a great song and even throws good luck her way over the prospect of Beyoncé's foray into country music finally earns her a Grammy award for Album of The Year ... something that's still missing from Bey's mantle.

SHE DESERVES MUCH MORE
CBS

Remember ... Jay-Z made a big stink about Beyoncé's lack of an AOTY award during a speech at this month's Grammys, so lots of folks are wondering if a country album will get Bey over the hump ... Darius included.

Of course, Beyoncé's going to have to beat out Taylor Swift -- and others -- to win AOTY ... Taylor's got a new album coming out too, and Darius actually addresses Taylor too here.

The cameraman asks Darius if he thinks Taylor should go back to country -- something that another bystander next to DR actually weighs in on before has a chance to. As for Darius, he says Tay Tay should crank out whatever type of music she wants ... ditto for Beyoncé.

One last thing Darius addressed here about Bey and country ... namely, John Schneider's ugly remarks about her last week -- when he likened her to a dog marking its territory.

2/17/24
HAVE TO MAKE THEIR MARK
OAN

Like many people ... he agrees that John's words were laced with a racist undertone -- and he says gatekeeping country music is absolutely silly. On the question of whether Beyoncé is a "lightning rod" ... Darius scoffs at that notion as well in this interview.

Long story short ... Darius is all for Beyoncé getting into country music -- he's definitely a fan.

Here's hoping his cosign quiets down the haters who are riled up ... 'cause there seems to be a lot of 'em, and in Darius' eyes -- they're making a big fat fuss over a whole lotta nothing.

Joe Budden Travis Scott & Playboi Carti's Bozo Behavior ... Was Beneath Grammys!!!

What Are They Doing?
The Joe Budden Podcast

Joe Budden thinks Travis Scott and Playboi Carti stunk it up at the Grammys big time -- 'cause their rock star shtick failed to read the room ... and made 'em seem like brats.

ICYMY, Travis and Carti performed their explosive collab "FE!N" mid-show -- complete with the rager-style, flame infernos that made his 'Circus Maximus' tour such a big deal. They were throwing around chairs and smashing stuff onstage ... mostly Travis though.

Feinin' For Recognition
CBS

Some might argue it gave the Grammys a little flair when the room can be known to be a bit stuffy -- but there are many who feel like TS was lashing out for losing at the show after Killer Mike swept all the Rap Grammys this year, leaving his "Utopia" album in the dust.

Regardless of the reason for the tantrum, JB doesn't wanna hear any of it ... on his episode "Business Decisions," he argued that Trav and Carti were nothing but a pair of "bozos" who made fools of themselves in the presence of beautiful women and buttoned-up men.

He also roasted Carti like a marshmallow for hitting the stage in a mask and then wondering why fans didn't go crazy ... "Playboi Carti looked confused. Like, ‘Y’all don’t know who I am?’ No, n**** You got a f***ing mask on! Who the f*** are you under there? You are not at SXSW anymore!!!"

Joe added, "We can’t recognize you bozos by the stocking mask you’re wearing. I hate these n*****, man ... all of ’em!!!”

Both Travis and Carti were exposed without the "little white kids" going apes*** in the crowd,  Joe argues -- saying their act was better suited for the muddy stomping grounds of Coachella.

Killer Mike Won Fair & Square

BTW, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's Layzie and Flesh-n-Bone recently told us similar ... there was no reason not to expect an OG like Killer Mike not to win the awards. Joe agrees.

Tough criticism, no doubt -- but considering how seemingly out of pocket their set was ... perhaps JB has a point here. FWIW, Trav and PC haven't addressed the whole thing.

Taylor Swift Si no ganaba un Grammy... ¡¡¡Tenía un plan B para anunciar el nuevo disco!!!

Tenía un plan B

Taylor Swift está siguiendo los pasos de Donna Kelce en el departamento de las cuenteras, pues le dijo a sus fans que tenía un plan B para anunciar su álbum si no ganaba un premio en los Grammy ... OK, Tay Tay. 🙄

La cantante transmitió este sentimiento a sus fans de Tokio el miércoles por la primera de sus cuatro actuaciones en la ciudad, y afirma que habría guardado la noticia para Japón si las cosas no hubieran funcionado en la entrega de premios el pasado fin de semana.

2/4/24
Una nueva era
CBS

Taylor explica que solo le había dicho a unas pocas personas sobre su álbum, incluyendo a su productor, Jack Antonoff, y luego dijo: "OK, si tengo la suerte de llegar hasta allá y ganar algo esta noche, voy a hacerlo. Voy a anunciar mi nuevo álbum".

Ella bien podría estar diciendo la verdad aquí, pero si somos honestos, suena poco sincero pensar que su victoria en los Grammy no era segura, porque la verdad sea dicha, absolutamente lo era y T-Swift probablemente lo sabía.

2/4/24
¿Celine cuánto?
CBS

En otras palabras, Taylor está jugando la carta de la modestia, que en realidad canalizó la noche del domingo cuando ganó el premio al Álbum del Año por "Midnights", aparentemente fingiendo sorpresa.

De todos modos, Swift continuó con la modestia durante el show del miércoles, diciéndole a la audiencia: "Y por suerte, eso terminó sucediendo, gracias a ustedes y su apoyo, tuve la suerte de ganar un Grammy y contarles sobre el escenario de los Grammy. Y ahora podemos hablar de ello después, podemos hacer como un debrief esta noche".

Por supuesto, sus fans se lo creyeron y la animaron, pero de nuevo, esto es muy parecido a lo que Donna sugirió justo antes, que ella no sabía donde se sentaría en el Super Bowl y que no pensaba que estaría en una suite privada.

Por cierto, el propio Travis parece estar en este tren también, pues hizo parecer que no sabía en qué país estaba actuando Taylor, antes de decir correctamente que estaba en Tokio.

En pocas palabras, jugar a hacerse el tonto parece ser el plan de juego para todos en la órbita de Taylor en este momento. Más poder para ellos, pero, francamente, todo el mundo está leyendo entre líneas. ¡Solo lo digo!

Taylor Swift If I Didn't Win at Grammys I Had Backup Plan for Album News!!!

BACKUP PLAN

Taylor Swift is pulling a Donna Kelce in the BS department -- telling her fans that she had a backup plan to announce her album if she didn't win at the Grammys ... OK, Tay Tay. 🙄

The singer relayed this sentiment to her Tokyo fans Wednesday night during performance #1 of her 4-show slate -- and yes, she claims she would've saved the news for Japan if things hadn't worked out for her at the award show this past weekend.

2/4/24
A NEW ERA
CBS

Taylor explains she'd only told a select few people about her album at that point -- including her producer, Jack Antonoff -- and then said ... "OK, if I’m lucky enough to get up there and win one thing tonight, I’m just gonna do it. I’m just gonna announce my new album."

She may well be telling the truth here ... but if we're being honest, it sounds like she's being a little insincere in the sense that she makes it seem like her winning at the Grammys wasn't a sure thing ... 'cause truth be told, it absolutely was, and T-Swift probably knew it.

2/4/24
CELINE WHO???
CBS

In other words, Taylor is overplaying the modesty card -- which she actually channeled on Sunday night when she won Album of the Year for "Midnights" ... seemingly feigning surprise.

Anyway, TS continued to lay it on thick during Wednesday night's show ... telling the audience, "And luckily enough, that ended up happening ... thanks to you and your support, I was lucky enough to win a Grammy and tell you about it onstage at the Grammys. And now we can talk about it afterward, we can do like a debrief tonight."

Of course, her fans ate it up and cheered her on -- but again, this is very much so in the same vein as what Donna suggested just earlier in the day ... that she didn't know where she'd be sitting at the Super Bowl, and that she didn't think she'd be in a private suite.

BTW, Travis himself seems to be on this train too ... he made it seem like he didn't know what country Taylor was performing in ... before correctly saying it was in Tokyo.

Bottom line ... playing dumb appears to be the game plan for everyone in Taylor's orbit right now. More power to 'em -- but frankly, everyone's seeing right through it. Just sayin'!

Howard Stern Mocks Trevor Noah's Hosting ... All Positive at Grammys

Trevor Noah's Grammy Awards hosting performance has received widespread praise -- but Howard Stern's not hopping on that bandwagon, instead criticizing the comedian's gushing positivity.

NOBODY'S OFF LIMITS
The Howard Stern Show / Sirius XM

The radio icon offered his review of the Grammys while on his SiriusXM show ... taking the comedian to task for approaching the award ceremony with zero edge ... calling him more "cheerleader" than roastmaster.

HS played a few clips from TN's monologue ... where Trevor called Mark Ronson a "legend" and heaped praise on Grammy winner 21 Savage.

Stern went to town on that part, imagining Noah continuing to talk about Savage's detail-oriented financial nature and even his "great ass" ... before adding, "No one is safe, no one is off limits from my admiration, and you will hear it tonight!“

Howard did cut Noah some slack, acknowledging hosting a major awards show's an impossible job -- and pointed to Jo Koy's disastrous Golden Globes monologue as a prime example of a host trying "to make a few jokes and they almost f***ing killed the guy."

Howard's seemingly in the minority here BTW ... with Noah getting 2 thumbs up from a whole bunch of people including Taylor Swift who said he did a "beautiful job" in a sweet backstage moment.

Not exactly a surprise there ... as we previously reported, Noah got a little revenge on the NFL for Taylor during his opening monologue -- promising to cut to former NFL linebacker Terry Crews after every Taylor reference.

It didn't sound like Howard was throwing his hat in the ring to be the next host ... but imagine how edgy that would be! The Grammys would never.

Howard Stern Se burla de Noah Trevor como presentador... Demasiado positivo en los Grammys

La actuación de Trevor Noah como anfitrión de los Premios Grammy ha recibido elogios generalizados, pero Howard Stern no se está subiendo a ese carro y en su lugar está criticando la efusiva positividad del comediante.

Nadie está fuera de los límites
The Howard Stern Show / Sirius XM

El icono de la radio hizo una revisión de los Grammys en su programa de SiriusXM, en donde criticó al comediante por parecer más un cheerleader que un cómico.

Howard Stern reprodujo algunos clips del monólogo de Trevor Noah donde llamó a Mark Ronson una "leyenda" y elogió al ganador del Grammy 21 Savage.

Stern se refirió a esa parte, imaginando a Noah luego hablando de lo detallista que era Savage con sus finanzas e incluso de su "gran culo", antes de añadir: "Nadie está a salvo, nadie está fuera de los límites de mi admiración, ¡y lo escucharás esta noche!"

Howard le dio un respiro a Noah, reconociendo que ser anfitrión de una entrega de premios es un trabajo imposible, y señaló el desastroso monólogo de Jo Koy en los Globos de Oro, quien intentó "hacer algunas bromas" y luego "casi lo matan".

Aparentemente, Howard está entre la minoría aquí. Noah consiguió pulgares hacia arriba de un montón de gente, incluyendo Taylor Swift, quien le dijo que hizo un "trabajo hermoso" en un momento dulce del backstage.

No es exactamente una sorpresa, como informamos anteriormente, Noah se vengó un poco de la NFL por Taylor durante su monólogo de apertura, prometiendo cortar al ex linebacker de la NFL Terry Crews después de cada referencia a Taylor.

No pareciera que Howard se estuviera ofreciendo para ser el próximo anfitrión, ¡pero imagínense lo nervioso que sería! Los Grammy nunca lo harían.

CELINE DION SINGING BACKSTAGE AT GRAMMYS!!!

GRAMMY FUN

Here's an uplifting sign of just how good Celine Dion's feeling these days -- not only did she make a surprise appearance onstage at the Grammys, but backstage she gave an impromptu performance!

The icon showed off her famous vocal chops alongside Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Sonyaé in a clip filmed backstage Sunday night at L.A.'s Crypto.com Arena -- proving she's still got it amid her battle with Stiff-Person Syndrome, which makes performing difficult due to painful muscle stiffness and spasms.

Celine was effortlessly smooth in her delivery while groovin' along with Sonyaé ... this marking the first time she's sung publicly in 4 years, making the moment all the more special.

Sonyaé shared the IG clip ... rightly captioning it as one of her most iconic moments from the evening, which went down a treat with her followers.

It was a big night for Celine ... who was met with a standing O while presenting the Album of the Year Award -- her industry peers were clearly thrilled to see the hitmaker out, who has mostly been staying out of the spotlight since announcing her rare neurological syndrome.

Although she looked and sounded amazing, sources with direct knowledge tell us the sad reality for Celine is that she still struggles physically many days. In December, her sister said Celine remained focused on her desire to return to the stage.

Of course, that heartwarming moment turned awkward moments later when Taylor Swift bizarrely ignored her as she rushed onstage to collect her award.

However, no one dares disrespect the Queen of power ballads, not even Tay Tay herself.

Swift's team seemed to quickly catch wind of the public backlash, and made sure to shift focus on a backstage pic of the singers embracing.

Celine Dion ¡¡¡Canta tras bambalinas en los Grammys!!!

Diversión en los Grammys

Estas sí que son alentadoras señales de lo que bien que se está sintiendo Celine Dion por estos días: no solo hizo una aparición sorpresa en el escenario de los Grammy, sino que también ofreció una improvisada actuación tras bambalinas.

El icono musical mostró sus habilidades vocales junto a la compositora nominada al Grammy Sonyaé en un clip filmado el domingo en el Crypto.com Arena de Los Ángeles, demostrando que aún lo tiene en medio de su batalla contra el Síndrome de Persona Rígida, que hace que la actuación sea difícil debido a la dolorosa rigidez muscular y sus espasmos.

Celine cantó de manera relajada y casi sin esfuerzo junto a Sonyaé, en la primera vez que la vemos cantar en público en 4 años, haciendo aún más especial el momento.

Sonyaé compartió el clip en Instagram, el que subtituló como uno de sus momentos más emblemáticos de la noche, lo que le encantó a sus seguidores.

Fue una gran noche para Celine, quien fue recibida con una ovación de pie al presentar el Premio al Álbum del Año. Sus compañeros de la industria estaban claramente encantados de ver a la estrella, quien se ha mantenido principalmente fuera de los focos desde que anunció su inusual síndrome neurológico.

Aunque parecía y sonaba increíble, fuentes con conocimiento directo nos dicen que la triste realidad para Celine es que aún lucha físicamente muchos días. En diciembre, su hermana dijo que la cantante seguía centrada en su deseo de volver a los escenarios.

Eso explica la alegría en la cara de Celine el domingo. Antes de presentar el Álbum del Año, esta dijo: "Cuando digo que estoy feliz de estar aquí, lo digo en serio. De corazón".

Por supuesto, el conmovedor momento se volvió algo incómodo momentos más tarde, cuando Taylor Swift bizarramente la ignoró mientras recogía su premio.

Sin embargo, nadie se atreve a faltarle el respeto a la reina de las baladas, ni siquiera la propia Tay Tay.

El equipo de Swift pareció darse cuenta rápidamente de la reacción del público, y se aseguró de cambiar el foco de atención a una foto entre bastidores de las cantantes abrazándose.

SZA definitivamente es de las artistas que ve el "vaso medio lleno", pues dice que ya ha superado el haber perdido el Álbum del Año en la 66ª edición de los Premios Grammy.

La rapera y cantante de R&B se sentó con The Hollywood Reporter el lunes, un día después de que su álbum "SOS" perdiera frente a "Midnights" de Taylor Swift por el premio más importante de la noche, y dijo que no le importaban tanto los trofeos como simplemente "sobrevivir a la noche".

Por si se lo perdieron, SZA también actuó en los Grammys este domingo y llegó tarde a recibir uno de los tres Grammys que ganó debido a ello, por lo que parece que la artista de 34 años tenía asuntos mucho más urgentes en su mente.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Básicamente, SZA dijo que está feliz de haber ganado 3 premios, sin importar cuán grandes o pequeños sean a los ojos del resto del mundo, agregando que no estuvo "bombardeando en televisión", por lo que todo funcionó muy bien para ella.

Y si creen que perder una de sus nominaciones frente a T-Swift está molestando a SZA, piénsalo dos veces porque le dijo a The Hollywood Reporter que llegó a hablar un montón con Taylor en el evento y la encontró "divertidísima".

Suena como el comienzo de una hermosa amistad entre celebridades.

Es importante señalar que SZA también ha estado recibiendo una tonelada de amor de otras celebridades, como por ejemplo Beyoncé, quien parece haberle enviado una nota escrita que ella volvió a publicar en Instagram. Definitivamente, hace que sea difícil obsesionarse con un Grammy más cuando la Reina se contacta contigo.

Así que, Sza claramente se mantiene positiva y oye, ¡¡¡siempre hay un próximo año!!!

SZA AOTY Loss Not Getting to Me ... Still Got My Grammys Bag!!!

SZA's definitely a "glass half full" kinda artist ... because she says she's already moved on from losing Album of the Year at the 66th Grammy Awards.

The rapper/R&B singer sat down with The Hollywood Reporter Monday -- one day after her album "SOS" lost out to Taylor Swift's "Midnights" for the evening's biggest award -- and, she said she didn't care as much about the trophies as simply "surviving the night."

ICYMI ... SZA also performed on Grammys Sunday -- and was late receiving one of the three Grammys she did win because of it -- so, it seems the 34-year-old had much more pressing issues on her mind.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Basically, SZA said she's happy to have won 3 awards, no matter how big or small they are in the rest of the world's eyes ... adding she didn't "bomb on live television" so the whole thing worked out great for her.

And, if you think losing on one of her nominations to T-Swift's buggin' SZA, then think again -- 'cause she told THR she got to talk with Taylor a ton at the event and called her "funny as hell."

Sounds like the beginning of a beautiful celeb friendship.

FWIW ... SZA's been getting a ton of love from other celebs -- like Beyoncé, who seems to have sent her a handwritten note that she reposted to IG. Definitely makes it hard to obsess over one more Grammy when the Queen reaches out.

Honorable C.N.O.T.E. tells us he spoke to KM moments after the run-in with a security guard, and he says Mike called it "the third best thing" that happened to him on Sunday -- in other words, the whole drama was already rain down the drain for Mike.

His self-titled album dominated this year's hip hop categories -- including Best Rap Album award, for which C.N.O.T.E. produced the track "Spaceship Views."

It’s the exact sentiment KXNG Crooked shared with us when railing against the industry last year.

So, if a billionaire like Jay is complaining, higher powers must be at work.

While you can’t make everyone happy, Lay and Flesh did have some grace for the Grammys for honoring their late mentor Eazy-E’s trailblazing group N.W.A with a 2024 Lifetime Achievement award -- which, they say, will go a long way in educating Gen Z on rap history.

They blame the internet for scrambling kids’ brains … as seen with the knee-jerk reactions after Killer Mike swept the Rap Grammy categories on Sunday and many younger fans — like Kai Cenat -- claimed they'd never heard of him until now.

WHO IS THIS ???

KM’s been stampeding through rap for decades  … the Bone brothers say there was never an excuse not to know the Run The Jewels rapper, but with his new round of accomplishments, anyone speaking out will just look like a big ‘ol hater!!!
