HERE'S TODAY'S BONUS STORY:
Rev. Jesse Jackson is reportedly asking to meet with the president of The Recording Academy, the organization that actually puts on the Grammys. Why? Because of the cuts to it's Grammy categories. Word is, Rev has also raised the possibility of protests and with the awards less than two weeks away.....that's probably gonna be a problem.
The Rev. sent a letter to president and CEO Neil Portnow, and basically expressed his dismay over the Academy's decision last April to cut it's categories from 109 to 78. Rev. Jackson's letter stated that he's been speaking to several members in the entertainment community and who asked that his organization "meet with you urgently to express our concerns and to see if we might help resolve this conflict and allow the Grammy to do what they do best".
So, you'll know of some of the categories dropped was Zydeco and Cajun music. In addition to that, men and women compete against one another now instead of being put in same sex categories. The Academy maintains that the changes were necessary to make the awards more competitive.
