Mean Jean’s BOLD 2016 GRAMMY Predictions

We’re a little over four months away from “music’s biggest night.” The show is on the move from Sunday to Monday, February 15, 2016 and it will be interesting to see how the change impacts viewership.

Every summer I lay out some BOLD predictions on the show based on how things have gone musically thus far. Last year, I did really well after getting four out of five right, but one was conditional. Let’s see how I do for 2016. Warning: one pick will shock you, but it WILL happen.

Survey Ranks Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, Worst Role Models. Ed Sheeran, Kate Middleton Best

My view on celebrity role models is they shouldn’t exist, personally I think parents should be role models who their kids look up to, but a survey was done with parents of children under 10 in England. They were asked who they thought the best and worst male, female role models for kids were. Miley Cyrus took the most votes overall with Nicki Minaj, Kanye West and Justin Bieber not too far behind.
