No good thing goes without drama, why would the Grammys be any different?

The biggest buzz being what has been called an "awkward" moment between Jay-Z and Rihanna as she won her Grammy for Best Rap Collaboration. From Jay-Z pulling his hand from her, to looking back at Beyonce, to Solonge giving the evil eye.

Now my inside spy who attended the show did say that their was more than the eye can see between the two...
If you don't think Ri Ri and Jay are doing it, u got another thing coming! Lotta weird stuff happening off camera he had no control over. She's real touchy feely.
Hmmm... I still think the acceptance speech thing is being over-analyzed, I didn't see anything that people are talking about. It seems to get less awkward the more times I look at it, they even embrace as they leave the stage. I don't know, I really get the feeling that they have a big bro/lil sis relationship. You can decide for yourself, check out the actual footage.

Unfortunately, the drama didn't end there for Rihanna, as she ended her Grammy night in a car accident after leaving a post-show party. No injuries, just a bit shaken up.

To top off the Grammy drama, Natalie Cole felt compelled to rain on Amy Winehouse's parade saying that she didn't' deserve to perform and win due to her recent drug troubles, since so many other talented sober ladies were out there...

"I'm sorry. I think the girl is talented, gifted, but it's not right for her to be able to have her cake and eat it too.

"She needs to get herself together ... this is about discipline and hard work, and you don't get to just do your drugs and go onstage and get rewarded."

Cole had no complaints with Winehouse's Grammys performance, which was beamed to Los Angeles via satellite from London.

"Her performance was fine," Cole said.

"I don't take anything away from her talent, but I just feel like she's stepping into a place that she hasn't earned yet."

Winehouse was the star of Sunday's show, scooping five awards -- including the coveted record of the year, song of the year and best new artist.

Cole however said she would have preferred to see R'n'B stars Beyonce or Rihanna rewarded instead of Winehouse.

"I just feel like they're ready to go the long haul. You can tell how hard they work, they're great people, their heart is in the right place.

"These are the people we should be praising, these are the people we should be encouraging."

This is slightly hypocritical if you ask me, because Natalie has battled her own demons. Plus, if anything, I think Amy's performance was a testament of her struggle to get sober. I mean you could actually understand 92% of her words and she was able to make it through the whole performance without falling down. That is progress, people!

On top of that, I can guarantee that Amy isn't the only crack connoisseur at the Grammys...
