THE POP FIX predicts…Grammy Winners

“Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends,” Coldplay
“Tha Carter III,” Lil Wayne
“Year of the Gentleman,” Ne-Yo
“Raising Sand,” Robert Plant and Alison Krauss
“In Rainbows,” Radiohead

This is exactly what just happened to Michael Phelps and Subway…minus the sex part. After he was dropped from cereal juggernaut, Kellogg’s, fellow-endorser, Subway, finally decided to speak out as well. However, instead of a slap in the face, and the whole “You don’t deserve me!” spiel, Subway happily opened its arms and accepted Phelps’ apology for the recent photos that feature him taking a bong rip.
