It wouldn't be surprising if you assumed the monster success behind Fun.'s "We Are Young" with Janelle Monáe was the calculated work of a studio, but that's not the case.
"It wasn’t about a record label putting two hot artists together," Fun. member Andrew Dost told CNN on the red carpet. "Janelle’s an artist and just wanted to be a part of the song."
Indeed, Monáe told us on Sunday that she "didn’t know it was going to be such a big song, I just knew I loved it."
To Monáe, "We Are Young" is "cross-generational," but for Dost, Nate Ruess and Jack Antonoff the song "was a little more negative, and suddenly it just had this positive anthemic effect on people."
The band, which is one of the lead nominees at the 55th ceremony, is made up of "great guys," Monáe said. "[They] deserve every accoalade."
CBS handed down pretty strict guidelines for fashion tonight at the Grammy Awards, but two-time nominee Carly Rae Jepsen had no problem complying.
The network's standards department sent out an email to Grammys contacts on Tuesday, telling them to keep their breasts, butts and genitals well-covered. Jepsen, who's going to present during tonight's show, followed suit in a blue floor-length gown that offered only a hint of cleavage.
