Bon Iver's Justin Vernon Wearing That Dope-Ass Tweed Suit While Accepting the Grammy for Best New Artist
After his (perfectly reasonable) rant about telling the people at the Grammys to fuck off for asking that they perform with some other artist rather than on their own, Bon Iver's Justin Vernon handled himself about as gracefully as anyone could have hoped when he was summoned to the stage to accept the award for Best New Artist. He thanked his hometown, he name-checked Jagjaguwar, he said the words "sweet hookup" in reference to the people who voted for him, and he closed with a heartfelt but drama-free nod to his parents. And he did all of it while decked out in brown tweed and a tie with birds on it. This round definitely went to us.
