Jeezus guys, can we chill? Katy's been in the spotlight since when, end of '08? So that's just about 5 years of being "famous". She's released 3 albums, one of which is not even close to being halfway done promoted, and she's about to kick off her second worldwide arena tour. She's had 10 number one singles (11 next week), and god knows how many more. She's matched feats only the King of Pop has. And she's been around for FIVE YEARS.
Did you guys know that Led Zeppelin won their first ever Grammy (other than Grammy Hall of Fame) yesterday? They released their first album in 1969. They are widely regarded as the creators of modern rock and metal music. Yet, it took them 45 years to win a Grammy. Well I'll be damned if Katy's in her 60s when she wins her first, but I'm just trying to put things in perspective for you. As far as pop culture goes, she's somewhat of a new artist. Look how long Beyonce or Pink has been around compared to Katy.
She didn't win a Grammy for one song on a relatively brand new album. Literally, one song was nominated out of a possible one. Dark Horse hasn't hit its prime yet, not to mention the at least 4 more singles she's going to release over the course of the year. Prism should be up for album of the year next year.
The point is, we complain she hasn't won a Grammy yet, when in all fairness, she hasn't hit her prime. The future's bright, and unless she decides she's quitting after Prism, there will be plenty of Grammy's in her future. And we'll all look back and laugh at how concerne and upset we were when she got snubbed a few times.
