My personal song for this morning is "I'm So Tired," but before I go into any post-GRAMMY debriefing, rehabbing hibernation, I wanted to share my special celebratory GRAMMY playlist for all the winning women this GRAMMY night. So if all those GRAMMYs weren't enough for you — Beyoncé, Taylor, Gaga — here are some songs to honor this moment and to have your head spinning like Pink was last night.
Congrats to all the amazing women who won, who performed and who just made the red carpet infinitely more red hot. As for the gentlemen of the GRAMMYs, thanks so much for being such excellent "plus ones."
