1. Harry Styles faces backlash after saying his Grammy win 'doesn't happen to people like me very often'

Harry Styles did some late night talking, and Twitter is pretty mad. The "As It Was" singer unexpectedly won Album of the Year for Harry's House at Sunday's Grammys, shocking pundits who widely expected Beyoncé's Renaissance to prevail. Beyoncé did take home enough awards to break the record for most wins ever, but she has still never won Album of the Year, nor has any Black woman won it since 1999. With that in mind, Styles was mocked for saying in his acceptance speech that "this doesn't happen to people like me very often," leading one tweet to declare, "I gotta be honest I can't think of a type of people this happens for more." Vulture's Sam Sanders also called this the "most white privilege-iest thing to ever be uttered at an awards show." But the win came down to the fact that for Grammy voters, their favorite thing about Styles' album was that it feels like an album.
