So – a friend of mine just posted on Facebook that some “chick just beat out Justin Bieber and Drake for the Best New Artist at the Grammy’s tonight. So I did some investigating, and checked her Wikipedia page – apparently her name is Esperanza Spalding and she’s a jazz bassist.
Anyways, having JUST won the Grammy her Wikipedia page was being updated pretty constantly and I think that some disgruntled Justin Bieber fan wanted to make a statement – see below.
I showed my friend minutes later, but he said it was gone. Lucky for me I snagged a screenshot of it!
Luckily for Esperanza Spalding, the whole world has heard of her now.
**UPDATE: Esperanza’s page has been changed a few more times before/after I captured this version.
This one is at the bottom. “HaHA Justin Bieber, you’re just a little boy with no Grammy for Best New Artist”
“JUSTIN BIEBER DESERVED IT GO DIE IN A HOLE. WHO THE HECK ARE YOU ANYWAY?”
And her name has been changed to “Esperanza Quesadilla Spalding”
