CBS says they didn’t fail to protect viewers from a Jack White f-bomb during Sunday night’s Grammy telecast. According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” many viewers hit the web after the show to talk about White’s apparent use of the four-letter word during his performance of his single “Love Interruption.” But CBS claims he was actually singing the word “fight.” Executive VP Martin Franks tells “The Hollywood Reporter” that the network’s editors have listened to the performance multiple times and found nothing that needed to be bleeped. Those editors, however, did have to go to work during Mumford and Sons’ Album of the Year acceptance speech. Frontman Marcus Mumford joked that they didn’t win any Grammys last year because the award’s presenter, Adele, was nominated for “f***ing everything” at the 2012 ceremony. But thanks to the ten-second delay, Grammy editors were able to remove the profanity in time.
Beyonce is sitting down with Oprah. The talk show host announced the special one-on-one interview on Twitter on Monday. “Queen Bey” will be appearing on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” on OWN this Saturday, which is the same night as the premiere of her HBO documentary “Life is But a Dream.” But the two television events won’t be conflicting. The OWN interview is scheduled to air at 8 p.m. Eastern, so that fans can click over to HBO at 9 p.m. to watch the singer’s self-directed documentary. The last time Oprah sat down with Beyonce was back in 2008 shortly after tying the knot with Jay-Z.
Viewers may not have noticed, but a man who is now identified as Ukrainian TV presenter Vitalli Sediuk, stormed the Grammy stage Sunday night. According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” Sediuk, who is known for being a prankster, was detained by event security and placed under arrest for trespassing. He spent the night in jail. Sediuk somehow managed to get onstage and tried to intercept Adele as she made her way up to accept the first award of the night for Best Pop Solo Performance. The CBS broadcast actually picked up just a few seconds of the prank. Presenter Jennifer Lopez was shown giving Seduik a stern look and motioning for him to exit, as Adele went to accept the award from Pitbull. Apparently, the presenter got onstage by filling the seat of Maroon 5′s Adam Levine, who he knew would be a latecomer. He was released from jail on Monday. A court date is scheduled for March. Sediuk made headlines last May when he attempted to kiss Will Smith on the red carpet of the Moscow premiere of “Men in Black 3.” For that, he only earned a quick shove and slap from the star.
Ted Nugent will be front and center for President Obama’s State Of Union speech tonight. The rocker, who got acquainted with the Secret Service after making caustic comments about the President last year, will be attending the address as the guest of Texas GOP Representative Steve Stockman. Nugent will reportedly be making statements to reporters after the President’s remarks. In a statement, Stockman called Nugent a “patriot” adding that he was excited to have the rocker join him in the House chamber to hear from President Obama. Stockman and Nugent have a common bond in their support of the Second Amendment. Last month Stockman suggested impeaching the President over gun control. Nugent made headlines last year when he said he would either be dead or in jail this year if President Obama was re-elected to the White House.
Bon Jovi’s Jon Bon Jovi says he’s concerned for young music fans. The singer tells the UK’s “Star” magazine that “this generation isn’t paying that much attention to music.” He admits that “the young boy band thing has its place.” But Jon says “you can’t compare One Direction to the likes of Adele or Mumford And Sons,” adding that “their talent is invigorating.” Given his attitude, Bon Jovi was likely satisfied with the results at last weekend’s Grammy Awards. Adele and Mumford And Sons were among the winners at the event, while One Direction wasn’t even a nominee.
