Fans watching at home also joined in on the conversation by starting the #GrammysSoMale hashtag on social media, slamming the Grammys for the overwhelming about of male nominees and winners from this years' event - so it was totally the wrong moment for Grammys president Neil Portnow to put his foot in his mouth.

While it's hard to argue with the idea that more women in all levels of power of the entertainment industry would result in a more level playing field for artists of all genders, it might have been prudent for Portnow to rephrase portions of his response - particularly when he said that the women in question need to "step up". "[They need] to step up", the executive told Variety backstage after the show at Madison Square Garden in New York City as #GrammysSoMale trended on Twitter.

Alessia Cara won Best New Artist at the Grammys last night. "Grammy producer says 'there's no way we can really deal with everybody.' Oh".

Kabul attack linked to US Pak heat
Earlier, Kabul resident Mohammad Ehsan said the explosions began at around 5:00am (local time) and lasted for at least an hour. It also seeks Afghanistan to be on the driving seat for any peace talks with the Afghan Taliban and other insurgent groups.

It comes after Recording Academy President Neil Portnow and Grammys executive producer Ken Elrich explained why the two-time Grammy victor was not offered a solo spot. "We have to create [a show] that has balance. and what you saw was our best judgment on how to do that". "Sometimes people get left out that shouldn't, but on the other hand, we did the best we can to make sure that it's a representative and balanced show".

The quotes come on the heels of Variety's earlier report that Lorde, the only female nominee for album of the year, declined to perform after producers only asked her to be part of a Tom Petty tribute - while the male artists in the category (Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino and Jay-Z) were all offered solo performance slots. She had a great album.

Next year's show, for which Taylor Swift's reputation will be eligible, might be different.
