CeeLo Is Now Internet's Newest Meme After Showing Up To The Grammys Dipped In Gold

Award shows are held to a really high standard nowadays. Having a handful of the greatest entertainers the world has to offer perform just doesn't cut it anymore.

Evidently, CeeLo Green was on the same wavelength as the rest of us. He showed up dressed in gold from head to toe, and set the bar high for anyone else hoping to be turned into a meme before the Grammys were over.

In case you missed it, this was the red meat thrown into the cage that housed everyone on the internet.

Once everyone got a look at his costume, things went from 0-100 real quick.

Other people showed up in over the top outfits, but they may as well have come in with jeans and a hoodie. For example, Girl Crush, who I just learned was a person because my fingers aren't as close to society's pulse as they once were, came in dressed as a ball pit. At the very least, she deserves an honorable mention.

But even though he didn't win any awards, he definitely won fans' attention and will forever be immortalized online in a plethora of dank memes.

68-Year-Old Hardcore Singer Known As 'The Grindmother' Is The Internet's Latest Crush

Grindcore is a pretty extreme genre of music that surfaced in the mid-1980s. If you took hardcore punk, thrash metal, crust punk, industrial, and noise rock, and threw them all in the oldest, rattly blender you had, you’d get grindcore. It’s definitely an acquired taste, and not one that you would think a 68-year-old grandma would not only rock out to, but thrive in.

When you take age gap into consideration, music is one of the first major differences that come to mind. If I turn the radio on nowadays, I often catch myself turning the steering wheel into the opposing lane at the same time just to make it stop. Grindmother has definitely bridged that gap and then some.

It all started when she went to her son’s recording studio to provide backup vocals (read: screams) for his band, Corrupt Leaders. It became clear that she had a knack for it, which led to her starting her own band with her son and releasing the single History Repeats that has been seen millions of times worldwide, earning her fans all over the world, which includes a huge following in Japan.

Check out their live rehearsal video below:

She caught the attention of many celebrities, one of which was Ozzy Osbourne, who tweeted her video last year.

Her popularity has risen steadily, and she and her band are now preparing to go on tour. Her friends don’t quite appreciate the music as much as she does, but it sounds like they’re supportive of her rise to fame.

She even did an interview recently on Canadian television. When she’s not screaming her lungs out, she sounds like any other grandma does. Who knows what hidden talents they’re all hiding from us.

The appreciation isn’t one way, either. She’s very thankful that her fans have accepted and encouraged her music.
