7 Glorious Times Celebrities Went To The Grammys And Gave No F--ks

We're looking at you, ODB. And you, Nicki Minaj. And you over there in the angel wings, Kanye.

Unless you're Beyonce and Jay Z performing "Drunk In Love," the Grammys are usually a pretty sober event. Stars sit in their seats, wait patiently for their names to be called, try to act polite when their their name isn't called, and, if they're Taylor Swift, dance like everyone in Hollywood is watching at every opportunity.

But, there are also times when they just don't give a f--k. When they eschew convention and throw caution to the wind and just flat-out stunt. Or they can't be bothered to play nice, fake smile and toe the line like every publicist's dream client. (Recall, if you will, the late, great ODB.) Don't remember those times? We are here to remind you of those times.

So, with the 2015 Grammys just days away, we give you the 7 times celebs ripped up the playbook, went rogue and did whatever the f--k they wanted to at the Grammys.

Reminder: Wu Tang Is For The Children


When it comes to giving nary a single solitary f--k, the late-great Ol' Dirty Bastard is the all-time Grammy smasher. When Shawn Colvin was accepting her Song of the Year award in 1998 for "Sunny Came Home," ODB took the opportunity to hop up on stage and inform the room that "Wu Tang is for the children."

Kanye West does what Kanye wants. And at the 47th Grammy Awards that included wearing a white suit and giant white angel wings while singing "Jesus Walks." We're pretty sure he won't be recycling that look when he performs twice at the 2015 Grammys.
