I feel like this Grammys had a sort of low turnout — and some of that feeling stems from the fact that some people chose not to walk the red carpet, perhaps because the Kobe Bryant news just had a lot of folks feeling somewhat stunned, I think. But also I wonder if some people decided to give this year a pass given the current roiling scandal that the Grammys are possibly fixed and riddled with what the New York Times called “malfeasance and rot.”

How do you segue from “malfeasance and rot” into outfits? I have no idea!
