Did you happen to watch the Grammys last night? If not, let me just give you a quick rundown: everyone was really sad about Whitney Houston, and Adele won all the awards. But since I assaulted you with Whitney Houston news yesterday, I’m going to give you a break right now and just tell you about Adele.

This lady was nominated for six awards, and she won six awards, including Album of the Year. She completed dominated the awards, beating out the likes of Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna and restoring my faith in the human race. Oh, and speaking of Lady Gaga and Katy Perry? Neither of those ladies won a single award. So suck on that.
