    The Grammy Awards are making some nips and tucks to their current rules and parameters after a technicality rendered Lady Gaga ineligible to compete in the Best New Artist category at this year's awards. What an injustice, and no, I am not trying to be snarky. Gaga is the biggest meteor to shower to rain down on pop culture, popular music and society as we know it since Madonna, so it's pretty heinous that LG was ineligible for Grammy consideration and contention because of some silly rule. And when you're Lady Gaga, rules are made to be broken.

    Gaga's 2008 Best Dance Recording nomination for her hit single 'Just Dance' prevented her from being nominated as a Best New Artist at this January's show and tragically, the award ended up going to the Zac Brown Band, who are good, but they are not Gaga. The Associated Press reports that the Recording Academy made the changes to provide eligibility to previous Grammy nominees who have not released a full-length album and who have not won a Grammy.

    Did the Grammys cater to Gaga or does this rule change make sense? Should she receive an honorary Grammy?
