Justin Bieber relaxing in Panama

PANAMA CITY (AP) - Justin Bieber - you've just been arrested on DUI charges and have had a bunch of bad publicity lately. What are you going to do next? For the teenage pop star and sometimes teen scoundrel the answer is: go to Panama. A Panamanian radio and television host says The Beeb has been relaxing on a beach at a resort city on the Pacific Coast of Panama - as part of a vacation from the United States. Last week, police in Miami Beach, Florida said they arrested Bieber smelling of alcohol after officers saw him drag-racing before dawn on Thursday, his yellow Lamborghini traveling at nearly twice the speed limit.

Ozzy Osbourne a Taylor Swift fan?

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Don't be surprised if Taylor Swift writes a song about Ozzy Osbourne. No, they aren't dating or anything - but he did tell a joke at her expense backstage at the Grammys. When he came back to speak with reporters, he was asked about his comment that he was a fan of Taylor Swift. Ozzy said he certainly was - then deadpanned: Who the (expletive) is Taylor Swift. Of course, Ozzy being Ozzie there weren't many people who even understood what he was saying, so maybe she won't be upset.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Justin Timberlake had the top-selling album of last year. But of his seven nominations, he could only come up with one as a solo act. He won best R&B song for "Pusher Lover Girl."

And Snarky Puppy teamed up with Lalah Hathaway to win best-R&B performance with "Something." Rihanna also won a Grammy - taking the Urban Contemporary Album honors for "Unapologetic."

Kacey Musgraves makes a Grammy impact

LOS ANGELES (AP) - When Kacey Musgraves says she couldn't believe her ears when she learned she won a Grammy - she wasn't speaking metaphorically. She says she was sitting with her mom when the winner for best country album was announced. And she says while she heard the presenter say "Same Trailer, Different Park," it didn't register. She says she thought she had lost - until her mom poked her and told her to go up there and claim her award. Darius Rucker also won a Grammy in the country field. His was for Wagon Wheel. And the Civil Wars won for best duo/group performance.

Daft Punk Pharrell Williams "Punk" Grammys

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The mass wedding at the Staples Center may have been the social moment of this year's Grammys. But the real musical moments were produced by Daft Punk. Without uttering a word, they spoke the loudest, winning in every category they were nominated for last night. Among their trophies: album of the year and record of the year for "Get Lucky." The French duo - famed for their ever-present space-age helmets - picked up a total of four awards. And the group rewrote the books in that they did something that the Grammy producers try to do with their on-stage mashups - bring together people of different genres to create memories. In this case, Daft Punk teamed up with Pharrell Williams on the album "Random Access Memories." The collaboration also included music veterans Niles Rodgers, Giorgio Moroder and Paul Williams.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - They held a Grammys - and a mass wedding broke out. The music ceremony became a civil marriage ceremony for 33 couples who tied the knot - with Queen Latifah doing the vows. It was part of the impact of the Macklemore and Ryan Lewis song, "Same Love." The tune has become a gay rights anthem - and its call for diversity in same-sex unions was echoed by the Grammy show. The Seattle based rap duo performed their hit, along with Mary Lambert, the openly gay singer who did the hook for the song. They were joined on stage by Madonna, who sang "Open Your Heart," as the couples - some straight, some gay - said their "I Do's." Queen Latifah said she wasn't ordained to do the ceremonies - but did have the required "authority vested in her by the State of California." The rapper and actress says two of her friends were among those married. And Ryan Lewis says his sister was among those who was hitched.
