Hillary, Celebs Read ‘Fire And Fury’ At Grammys
Things turned political Sunday night at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards with an appearance of Hillary Clinton via a video, and she read “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”
“Now, some people don’t know this, but you don’t always need to be a musician to win a Grammy. In fact, every year, the recording academy has honored the best spoken word album. And over the years, this award has gone to some of the world’s most inspiring voices,” James Corden explained. “Bill Clinton’s has won a Grammy. Barack Obama has won a Grammy. Hillary Clinton, Jimmy Carter, and Al Gore, they all have Grammys. We know that our current president does love winning awards and the good news for him is he may just be the subject of next year’s winner.”
“The question I’ve got is, who will be the narrator. ‘Fire And Furry’ spoken word auditions take one,” he added, as he lead into a video with Cher, John Legend, Cardi B, Snoop Dogg, Khalid and Clinton, each taking turns reading passages of the book by author Michael Wolff that reportedly details the chaos of the early days of Donald Trump’s presidency.
“Trump won’t read anything. He gets up halfway through meetings with world leaders because he is bored,” Legend shared.
“His comb-over: The color was a product called ‘Just for Men,'” Cher explained. “The longer it was left on, the darker it got. Impatience resulted in Trump’s orange-blond hair color.”
“Trump did not enjoy his own inauguration. He started to get angry and hurt that stars were determined to embarrass him. I definitely wasn’t there,” Snoop Dogg said.
“He had a long time fear of being poisoned,” Clinton read. “One reason why he likes to eat at McDonald’s, nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely pre-made.”
“That’s it. We’ve got it. That is the one,” Corden responded to the former Democratic presidential nominee.
“You think so. The grammy is in the bag?” Clinton asked.
“In the bag,” the host responded.
