Clinton reads from 'Fire and Fury' at Grammys

Clinton reads from 'Fire and Fury' at Grammys

This year's actual Best Spoken Word Grammy went to the late Carrie Fisher for The Princess Diarist.

John Legend kicks off the skit reciting: "Trump won't read anything". They read excerpts from the deeply critical book about President Donald Trump's first year in office, ostensibly as contenders for a spoken word Grammy prize.

The Turn Back Time singer discusses the President's famous blond barnet, claming: "The colour is a product called Just For Men".

Pop star Camila Cabello made an impassioned defence of immigrants - in particular the "dreamers" who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children - as she introduced a performance by U2.

Cardi B, however, interrupted her passage, about a cheeseburger, with a bit of editorializing. "One reason why he likes to eat at McDonald's", Clinton read.

I didn't know this before, but now I know I would pay $24.99 for Cardi B reading the entirety of this book in her incredible NY accent.

"He had a longtime fear of being poisoned", she said.

We've got it! That's the one'.

"You think so?" Clinton asked, as the audience continued applauding.

Corden then praised her, saying "The Grammy is in the bag". "Don't ruin great music with trash", she tweeted, adding that it "ruined" the show.

But not everyone enjoyed the exciting moment, and Nikki Haley, United Nations Ambassador, was among those who took to Twitter to express discontent. We're certainly not one of those "stick to music" people, mostly because music and politics and everything else are all interwoven in their own unique ways.
