By the way, there was a nightmare-inducing clown on the Grammys red carpet last night
If you watched the Grammys pre-show (and why wouldn’t you have), you may have caught a glimpse of a frightening human being wearing a scaryass clown mask rolling on the red carpet. So, uh, what was up with that?

Turns out, as many speculated, it was one of the members of Slipknot, Shawn Crahan AKA Clown Number 6, to be precise. And really, once you saw him you could have just turned to the Pro Bowl or the Royal Rumble because you could have assumed that no one was going to top that moment the rest of the night and have been 100% correct. (Though Taylor Swift tried.)
I think Vanity Fair put it best.
Until the Oscars red carpet features an evil clown, it will never quite compare to that of the #Grammys.
