by

Last night, during the 55th Grammy Awards, we trudged through the bile and self-loating of angry would-be comedians and critics who took to Twitter to tell Jack White he looks like Edward Scissorhands and Johnny Depp he looks like the butt baby of Jack Sparrow and Steve Tyler and Adele she was dressed like a bowl of old potpourri and Wiz Khalifia he looks like Beetlejuice to extract some actual useful, unique and entertaining tidbits. This is what we found. (Warning: Katy Perry’s boobs probably NSFW.)
