This year’s Grammy awards were dominated by
politics more than music, with movements against sexual harassment, among others, taking center
stage. Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance
on-screen in Sunday’s ceremony, joining a host of singers to read passages from Michael
Wolff’s bestseller on President Trump’s administration, “Fire and Fury.” This was not taken too kindly by Washington,
with Trump and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley taking to Twitter to criticize the clip. Several stars also wore white roses as an
act of solidarity against sexual harassment and gender inequality. But there still was room for music to be celebrated. Bruno Mars won a total of six awards, including
song, record and album of the year for 24k Magic. Kendrick Lamar managed to scoop up five awards.
