Michelle Obama Wins Grammy For Reading Her Ghostwritten Memoir

Former first lady Michelle Obama won a Grammy award on Sunday for reading aloud a memoir that President Obama reportedly revealed was written for her by a ghostwriter.

From CNN:
Former first lady Michelle Obama has snagged her first Grammy win for the audiobook version of her best-selling memoir "Becoming." It's the third Grammy win for the Obama household.

Obama's husband won for the audiobook recordings of his memoirs "Dreams of My Father" and "The Audacity of Hope" in 2006 and 2008.

Obama's win for best spoken word album beat out nominees John Waters and the Beastie Boys, among others. She did not attend the ceremonies.
The Atlantic reported last year that Barack Obama has revealed in private repeatedly that "Michelle used a ghostwriter."

In related news, the newly-ousted CEO of the Recording Academy said last week that the organization is deeply corrupt and filled with Weinstein-style predators.

From NPR:
Deborah Dugan, the suspended head of the Recording Academy, made many stunning allegations in her discrimination complaint filed Tuesday with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

Among Dugan's extraordinarily serious accusations about the public, not-for-profit organization that gives out the Grammy Awards: the rape of an unnamed female artist by her predecessor, Neil Portnow; her own sexual harassment by Academy general counsel and former board chair Joel Katz; "exorbitant" financial mismanagement; and myriad conflict of interests and self-dealing among members of the Academy board. (Both Portnow and Katz have denied Dugan's allegations.)
Dugan also says that she was dismissed in retaliation for her efforts to bring these concerns to light, frequently battling what she calls the "boys' club" she encountered before and during her five-month tenure at the Academy and especially now, just days before the glitzy annual Grammy Awards telecast, which will air this Sunday night.

As far as artists, music industry creators and fans are concerned, among the most threatening allegations to the Grammys' public image are her claims that the awards themselves are "ripe with corruption." Those accusations threaten to tarnish the credibility of the prizes that tout themselves as a vaunted and prestigious symbol of peer recognition.
Remember how the Obama's daughter got an internship with Harvey Weinstein?

Amazing how that works.
