HIGH: U2 and Alex Ebert Repping for Rock & Roll
Rock & roll was better represented at the Globes this year than 12 Years a Slave. Alex Ebert won Best Original Score, Motion Picture — perhaps you know him better as the leader of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. When the bearded, bewildered musician took the stage, he and presenter Diddy reminisced about meeting under different circumstances: "He was on a boat with me partying in St. Barths," Puffy exclaimed. "He came up from behind me and unbuttoned my jacket and said, 'Let it flow!'" Ebert added. (Oh sure, that cleared it up). Chris Martin was in the house as a Best Original Song, Motion Picture nominee for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire track "Atlas," as was Taylor Swift for her "Sweeter Than Fiction" collaboration with Fun.'s Jack Antonoff, but that prize went to U2 and Danger Mouse for "Ordinary Love" from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. "Larry, say something," Bono encouraged Mullen Jr. (and he did!). Adam Clayton thanked Chris Martin for helping "us work this song out." "We're good at the dysfunctional love stories," Bono added.
