Bob Marley tribute at 2013 Grammys features Rihanna, Bruno Mars and Sting, video below. The Grammys paid tribute to Bob Marley on Sunday with a segment featuring Rihanna,Sting, Bruno Mars, and the late reggae icon’s sons Ziggy and Damian. Mars opened with his own “Locked Out Of Heaven,” which gave way to The Police’s “Walking On The Moon,” and then a Rihanna-led group performance of Marley’s “Could You Be Loved.”
“I grew up listening to the Police. I grew up performing in bars, singing Police songs,” Bruno told MTV News in 2012. “I remember performing a song like ‘Roxanne,’ and you play those first couple of chords, and you hit that first note, and you watch the whole bar ignite.” Bruno went bigger than just blowing up a bar at the Grammys on Sunday night (February 10). He lit up the entire Staples Center, diving head-first into an electrifying version of “Locked Out of Heaven” during a retro performance worthy of a “Soul Train” special.

File this under WTF??? Sting’s 17 year old daughter Coco Sumner has developed a friendship with idiot crackhead Pete Doherty, 29. Pete’s the male version of Amy Winehouse, (also her pal) and is coker/model Kate Moss’ ex. The UK Daily Mail says Coco and Pete’s “friendship” began after they met at a Soho jazz bar in London, and Pete has been helping her “develop her songwriting and guitar skills”. Uh, the only skill that Pete has in abundance is the ability to skirt doing time for drug charges. Like, more times than Snarkista can count. Besides, doesn’t Sting have a few musical skills himself?
Coco and Pete were together at the Glastonbury festival, where Pete played a solo set. An onlooker said:
I was standing next to Coco’s tent after Pete had played his set, and one of her friends went to check on her. She unzipped the door, and Pete was lying outstretched in her tent. He looked very comfortable and was smoking something – the tent was full of smoke but it was impossible to tell what it was. He seemed pretty out of it, though. Coco’s father isn’t too happy about her hanging around Pete because of his reputation, and hit the roof when he heard he had stayed in her tent. Coco has definitely inherited her dad’s vocal skills and Pete has been raving about her talent. It’s pretty clear he has the hots for her too, which will only worry her dad more.
Hello? Anybody home? Snarkista guarantees whatever Pete was smoking was NOT legal. Sting and Mama Trudy better lock their baby up quick, and take a hard look at the trainwreck that is Amy Winehouse. Ring daddy Mitch up and ask him what HE thinks. Anyone who would let their little girl hang out with Pete needs to have a LOUD wakeup call! Sting always seemed more sensible than that. I guess you never know with celeb parents. Here’s hoping we don’t hear about Coco running through London hammered, in filthy ballet slippers, with a toxic rat’s nest on her head.
