Swift, 23, cited Underwood’s lack of manners the reason for the issue, while no official comment has been made from Underwood’s camp, people at US weekly have confirmed that the crooners hate each other and this is not just a Grammy night fight. Underwood, 29, will steer clear of Swift, but I wonder how Carrie will feel during Taylor’s performance of a song off her latest album (RED) on Music’s Biggest Night. Hit the jump for more.

Matthew Aaron Llaneza, 28, of San Jose, California was trying to start the next “civil war” by detonating a car bomb at an Oakland Bank Of America branch. Llaneza was a Taliban sympathizer who unbeknownst to him was working hand in hand with an undercover FBI agent to his effective demise. His plan to set of a bomb near the Oakland FDIC insured location was supposed to spark a government crack down, one Llaneza felt would be fought hard by right wing America, enough so that it would cause civil unrest and possibly civil war. The bomb was fashioned by Mr. Llaneza and his undercover FBI agent counterpart, and was later rendered “inoperable” by FBI officials. THe FBI didn’t want to deal with a real threat so they made sure the bomb was inactive before they allowed Mr. Llaneza to legally hang himself. Hit the jump for more.
Justin Timberlake will be opening the Grammy awards by performing his new smash, “Suit & Tie” featuring Jay-Z.

It’s very smart of the Grammys to nab Justin as a performer although I would place him in the middle or end of the show to ensure more of an audience. Read what Ken said below.
