What we’re talking about: Grammy Awards, Bruce Jenner and Valentine’s Day


It’s what everyone’s talking about this morning…

The 57th annual Grammy Awards had it all — heartbreak, humor and high notes.

Glimmery gowns, studly suits and bouncy bobs ruled the red carpet. There were other looks, like a cupcake dress worn by Rihanna and Madonna looking like a matador.

On music’s biggest night, it wasn’t “all about the bass,” but instead the theme was heartbreak, with Sam Smith winning four Grammys for best new artist, best vocal album for “In the Lonely Hour,” and both record and song of the year for “Stay With Me.”

Beyonce added three to her trophy case — best surround sound album, and best R&B performance and R&B song — making her the second most honored woman in Grammy history.

Some other big moments — Jamie Foxx’s impression of Ray Charles, Kanye West kidding around, Pharrell’s still “happy,” and Kristin Wiig’s interpretive dance to Sia’s “chandelier.”

Another big story this past weekend…

Olympic gold medalist and reality TV star Bruce Jenner was involved in a four-vehicle crash in California that killed a motorist and injured several others on Saturday. Investigators say Jenner told authorities he was being followed by paparazzi.

The Kardashian family patriarch issued a statement, saying that his “heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones” and that this weekend’s crash was “a devastating tragedy.”

The investigation continues, with police now asking all drivers involved in the accident to voluntarily provide their phones so they can be checked for call and text data.

And just a reminder… Valentine’s Day is this Saturday, and for all you lovebirds planning a weekend full of romance, we have some great news. The financial website WalletHub has named Honolulu the 11th best city in the country to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

We ranked high for fun and romantic activities, and for “gift accessibility,” which means no excuses for late presents.

We also have one of the highest numbers of jewelry stores per capita (hint, hint), but for some reason, we scored poorly on the weather forecast, maybe because it might rain this weekend.

San Francisco was named the best city for Valentine’s Day and Detroit was named the worst.
