SHOW BITS: Still more rules at the Grammys
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.
GRAMMYS DON’T WAIT FOR ANYONE
The Grammy Awards show started at 8 p.m. EST. Not at 8:05 or 8:07 or 8:10
The late-arriving celebrity crowd quickly learned that fact when they were kept in a vestibule with all the regular folks until the first commercial break. Only then were they allowed to take their seats.
That meant Drake, Jenna Jameson and Tito Ortiz had to cool their heels while Taylor Swift opened the show with her exuberant performance of “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.”
The waiting continued as host LL Cool J greeted the audience and on through Ed Sheeran and Elton John’s performance.
The stars’ handlers did manage to move them to the front of the line that was waiting to get in.

TAYLOR SETS TWEETERS ATWITTER
Did Taylor Swift just launch World War III?
After Swift broke into a faux British accent during her Grammy-opening performance, several One Direction fans took to Twitter to voice their disdain at the apparent dig at one of the singer’s former flames, One Direction member (and native Brit) Harry Styles.
The English-accented flourish came when Swift started speaking in the middle of an “Alice in Wonderland”-like performance of her Grammy-nominated song “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.”
Reaction was swift.
