Jazmine Sullivan finally won not one but two Grammy Awards
[Heaux Tales ended up being] “a safe space for Black women to tell their stories, for us to learn from each other, laugh with each other, and not be exploited … shout out to all Black women who are just living their lives and being beautiful.” – Jazmine Sullivan at the #GRAMMYs pic.twitter.com/n2oVPzd2gL

Doja Cat and SZA won Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their song, Kiss Me More.
According to Pop Sugar, “During their acceptance speech, Doja Cat got emotional about her first-ever Grammy win. After the award was announced, SZA made her way to the stage on crutches (with some help from Lady Gaga), but Doja still made it to the mic after her. It turns out, Doja had decided to go to the bathroom right before the award was announced and had to hurry back to accept it. ‘I have never taken such a fast piss in my whole life,’ she said as she fixed her dress, a little out of breath.”
