Grammy Wrap: Blink-182 Reunite, Rihanna Calls In ‘Sick’
The best news that the 2009 Grammy Awards brought last night was that Blink-182’s “indefinite hiatus” has definitely come to an end. Some had suspected that their appearance on stage at the awards show was a tease, but they released a statement saying that they’re writing a record and then touring the world!

Oh, and Katy Perry was there, looking all dolled up and being… weird? Funny? You be the judge…
The biggest WTF of the night was Chris Brown turning himself in to the cops and Rihanna calling in sick. Can you even do that? Call in sick to the Grammys? Anyway, all signs point to something foul on C. Brown’s part. Completely unacceptable. I hope Rihanna is ok.
