It seems that every year the Grammy’s leads to a great new tumblr. Last year it was the turn of the Arcade Fire, as thousands upon thousands of people – including celebrities such as Rosie O’Donnell and Dog the Bounty Hunter – questioned just who the hell they were and how they hand managed to win a Grammy. This year it’s the turn of Bon Iver who it again seems as though nobody in the world has ever heard of. Some guy got smart to it ahead of time this year though and actually PREDICTED the backlash that Bon Iver would receive at the grammy’s and set his tumblr up way ahead of time. As such, there’s a veritable mountain of classic quotes regarding Bon Iver and who he is to laugh at. I think my favourite is the people that call him Bonnie Bear instead of Bon Iver. It also perplexes me how people can get so angry about awards shows. I mean, sure maybe if you’re actually nominated for an award but because someone you wanted to win didn’t win the award for best new artist you’re going to lose your shit and go crazy? Why!?
Here’s a selection of some of the best comments, but if you want to check out the rest (there are a LOT) then head on over to Who is Bon Iver?
