    I can’t believe people are claiming he’s fully consenting to all of this when the man literally has late-stage dementia… like that’s the definition of not being able to fully consent 😭 I mean it’s not the end of the world, but why are people acting like Tony is genuinely steering the ship here

    I… what is with some of you just flat-out making stuff up lol? Literally no one said Tony Bennett is steering the ship. He’s not, his wife and son are. They’re the ones he put in charge and they’re the ones who’ve been helping him since his diagnosis. The argument here is that Tony Bennett’s wife and son know a hell of a lot more when it comes to what Tony wants than Gaga haters on Gold Derby do.

    The reason Ariana never makes the R&B field is because she only submits album tracks there, unlike Justin who submitted a #1 hit featuring two prominent R&B males.

    because you are “ashamed” with the L4S campaign, it’s just an elderly person singing on TV saying goodbye to his audience, something that has a doctor’s recommendation. Tony, Gaga and their team are doing what they need to do and what they need and can do to win the award. there’s nothing wrong with wanting to win a grammy.

    Just bury this thread. It’s a mess all around. The takes are literally pathetic. As someone else put it wisely, if LFS was not nominated in AOTY, none of you would’ve given a fuck about whether Tony consented to singing on his bday. Apparently because he has dementia he shouldn’t have been allowed to sing on his bday, something he clearly loved and enjoyed doing. The delusion. Maybe go watch the 60minutes and hear from his own doctor before you spew out such nonsense.

    Like you’re going this far with some disgusting cynicism just to try to taint a potential Gaga win. But I doubt she even cares about whatever Grammy’s she wins this year. She has bigger fish to fry, starting with a Best Actress nomination at the Satellite Awards tomorrow, right after she had the biggest adult drama debut at the box office since 2019. Some people appreciate and admire success. Others choose to spend their days hating and manufacturing conspiracy theories.

    manufacturing conspiracy theories.

    Not sure you’re aware of what a conspiracy theory is. An example of a conspiracy theory would be saying that MJs victims are actors who deserve emmys.

    Give Ariana DeBose an oscar

    Ariana has never made the R&B field because she’s never submitted anything there.

    This was Tony’s idea for an album and he comes alive when singing jazz. If he wins a Grammy for it, so be it. I’m sure his son and wife know what’s in his best interest as opposed to gold derby user chem_x, who had no interest in Tony Bennett whatsoever until he was a threat to win a Grammy. Y’all are really psychotic.

    Chile, 2 months away from Grammys and people are still mad at L4S  nominations writing pointless essays in here and it seems for the next 2 months is gonna be this way, the desperation is real… Go touch grass or something.

    Anyway… the second hand embarrassment I got from reading all of that was a little too much to handle, but moving on cause I got a question hoping you guys will know. Does anyone know when the Grammy pages will be updated or when the 1st time nominees will get their pages? I remember the past couple of years it was almost immediately after the nominations came out because that’s how we figured out the Billie, Lizzo, and Lil Nas X we’re getting nominated a couple years ago because their pages were already made they just weren’t made public yet so does anyone know when those are gonna go up?

    People suddenly pretending to be concerned or know peoperly Tony health conditions is hilarious.

    Doctors actually encouraged Tony since his diagnosis to keep doing music, it helped his condition, he always remembred lyrics of songs without problems, they gave him permission to do those 2 concerts and then doctors said stop, he was even supposed to go on tour (and no with Lady Gaga), he has an entire equipe of doctors following him everyday, he’s not the last arrived, it was all well explained in the 60 minutes special but of course none of you gave a damn since they weren’t a threat 2 months ago.

    The people here really lack nuance. Just a bunch of stans stanning blindly. I don’t think you guys here give a f about Tony Bennett too but the principle of using somebody’s deteriorating health to spearhead an awards show campaign and get sympathy votes is definitely problematic. No amount of essays or “shady” gifs is going to change that. You can take Gaga out of the situation and most people’s stance would remain the same.

    And lol at the lms trynna make it about racism. Gaga is a privileged white woman. She’s not won in the general field because voters didn’t wanna award. Her situation isn’t at all comparable to The Weeknd or Beyoncé. Stop this bs.

    I’m not a close fan of gaga but what you guys are doing is ridiculous. Tony is just saying goodbye to his fans to enter a well-deserved retirement and vacation after nearly 70 years of career. obviously a 95 year old can no longer have an extremely active and troubled life with shows and tours, regardless of what illness he has. it’s just a special for the end of a career not a life. the grammy is a consequence and an opportunity of all of this. It’s a celebration of life and not a warning of death, Tony is saveable and won’t die in December plss.

    Majority of you until 2 months ago didn’t even bother to comment this project, y’all were acting like it was a not event, now suddenly y’all using every excuse inlcuding his health condition to bring down this project because now it’s a threat.

    Tony had already this condition when he made the Diana Krall album, got nominations and even attended the Grammys that time, it was 3 years ago and he was already diagnosed, period in which she recorded also L4S, the album was ready since years, but of course this is an issue when this project got in AOTY and Lady Gaga is attached to it, before y’all weren’t giving a fuck.

    Just a bunch of haters hating blindly.

    We had a concrete idea about the promo sometime towards the end of the first round voting period and if you want, you can check the threads back then. Plenty of people were pointing out the same. So no, this is not recent and I have no idea what you wanted us to comment on two months ago when we weren’t even sure if Gaga would prepone the release to be eligible or not.

    Are we bringing down this project or is the narrative slightly uncomfortable for you too which is why you guys are flailing so much when people express their opinions? This is a forum. We discuss things here. I suggest you create a Gaga circlejerk thread if you only want to see praise for her.
