The 66th GRAMMYs: Performances, Acceptance Speeches — and Killer Mike’s Arrest

The 66th GRAMMYs: Performances, Acceptance Speeches — and Killer Mike’s Arrest

Backstage at the 66th Grammys, Atlanta rapper Killer Mike took questions after he won three Grammys, including Best Rap Album for ‘Michael.’ Just moments later, Mike became the talk of the event as he was escorted out of Crypto.com Arena and arrested after a misdemeanor altercation with a security guard.

Shortly before his surprise arrest, DMN asked Grammy-winner Killer Mike whether he consciously set out to make an album that people are calling ‘refreshing, and back to true, real hip-hop.’

Mike answered that he ‘consciously set out to make the best album in the world,’ adding, ‘I consciously set out to sell the story of a young black boy growing up in the west side of Atlanta, so that the world can see that our narrative isn’t just victimization and losing but we can win, we can thrive, and we’ll prosper, and I’m confident in saying that we’re gonna be right back at your ass and do it again next year.”

The event kicked off with a fantastic performance by Dua Lipa. Luke Combs and Tracy Chapman struck an emotional chord with ‘Fast Car.’ SZA performed her Grammy-winning hits, and Miley Cyrus rocked the house with her Grammy-winning Record Of The Year, ‘Flowers.’

Lainey Wilson, winning her first Grammy for Best Country Album, ‘Bellbottom Country,’ spoke humbly during her acceptance speech, highlighting the incredible journey of her success. “I am from a farming community in Northeast Louisiana, a little town of 200.”

Victoria Monet won Best New Artist, and Billie Eilish took home the Grammy for Song of the Year, writing ‘What Was I Made For,’ for the Barbie Soundtrack. Speaking about what appears to have been the year of the woman at the Grammys, Eilish said, “As a woman, it feels a lot of the time like you’re not being seen, and I feel that this makes me feel very seen.”

And no big surprise, Taylor Swift won the night, taking home her fourth Album of the Year Grammy — this time, for ‘Midnights.’

“I would love to tell you that this is the best moment of my life,” Swift said during her acceptance speech. “But I feel this happy when I finish a song, or when I crack the code to a bridge that I love, or when I’m shot listing a music video, or when I’m rehearsing with my dancers, or my band, or getting ready to go to Tokyo to play a show.

“For me, the award is the work, and all I want to do is keep being able to do this. I love it so much! It makes me so happy. It makes me unbelievably blown away that it makes some people happy who voted for this award, too. All I want to do is keep doing this. So, thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to do what I love so much. Mind blown!” Swift said.
