BIRTHDAY PRESENT FOR TYE TRIBBETT: 2 GRAMMY AWARDS

Gospel singer Tye Tribbett got something special for his birthday Sunday: two Grammy awards.

Tribbett won best gospel album and best gospel song, letting out a long and loud “Woooooooo” after each win.

Tribbett turned 38, but said “I’m 22 on stage.”

As he listed off his thank yous, he thanked his producer, then realized he’d made a mistake since he served as his own: “It just sounds like something you’re supposed to say.”

WILLIE NELSON ON BIEBER: LET HIM GROW UP

Country star Willie Nelson is known for his outlaw image, and he got a bit philosophical when asked about Justin Bieber’s recent arrest.

“He’ll be all right,” said Nelson of the 19-year-old pop star. “Let him grow up and then we’ll talk about him.”

Nelson has been arrested several times for marijuana possession.

He appeared on the red carpet before the Grammys Sunday with his buddies Kris Kristofferson and Merle Haggard. The three country legends are making another album together.
