SHOW BITS: Dealing and dissing at the Grammys
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Show Bits brings you the 55th annual Grammy Awards through the eyes of Associated Press journalists. Follow them on Twitter where available with the handles listed after each item.
RICK ROSS WORKS IT
Rick Ross is a businessman as much as he is a rapper.
“There’s a lot of networking to be done here,” he said on the red carpet at Sunday’s Grammy Awards, adding he had already done “three or four deals.”
Ross likes how his genre has taken what he sees as its rightful place at the annual ceremony.
“I feel like hip hop is most definitely more present at the Grammys,” he said, noting the presence of what he called such “underground legends” as Nas.

THE BROWN-OCEAN STANDOFF
The standing ovation snub between the pair, who brawled last month over a parking space at a West Hollywood studio, was clearly captured in a screenshot posted on Twitter by the site BuzzFeed.
The image shows Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, Adele and several others on their feet while Brown remains seated.
BuzzFeed’s photo of Brown’s diss was retweeted hundreds of times just a few minutes after it was posted.
