Ms. Grey’s GRAMMY performance has also gained the attention of several celebrities, including praise from Kelly Clarkson and Shirley Manson from Garbage.

Kelly Clarkson (via Facebook) ::
“I have been so tired of music lately….Finally, Dr. Dre comes out with something so great. His new song “I Need A Doctor” feat Eminem and Skylar Grey is a fresh taste of what music has the capability of being….I’m inspired and loving every second of this song.”

Shirley Manson (via Facebook) ::
“Why didn’t they ever show ….Skylar Grey’s…. face during my darling angel Eminem and Dre’s slot?!?!? It was very weird….especially as she is incredibly beautiful AND (more importantly) responsible for writing two of the most killer choruses in POP this last year or so. Talented AND gorgeous? Why sit on that?!??!?!”

Skylar Grey XXXVIII :: GRAMMYs Blog

Ms. Grey (who has been nominated for 2 GRAMMY awards) just debuted an official blog on GRAMMY.com. It adds some detail to her recent past, including her first working with Alex Da Kid, writing “Love The Way You Lie”, and starting her career. You can read a preview of the blog below, and read the entire blog here.

Here’s a excerpt from the blog ::
“When I wrote the chorus to Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie” featuring Rihanna, I was living alone in a cabin in the woods, with my home studio. I was taking a step away from the industry in an effort to nurture my muses, which had been seriously damaged. I certainly wasn’t attempting to write a hit song, but rather channeling what naturally came to me, with no expectations. It was the first time I had ever collaborated with Alex Da Kid, the song’s co-producer. Though I had never met him in person, musically we connected instantly over e-mail. The minute I found out Eminem was going to put it on his album my life became surreal. What a way to get sucked back into the industry. I was ready for it, though. After reflecting on the past and soul-searching in the woods, I realized I had grown into a completely different person. I was stronger than ever before and was prepared to deal with anything that was thrown at me without letting it compromise my creativity.”

Actress Pauley Perrette also tweeted a photo of herself in where the GRAMMY nominees will be sitting tomorrow, which includes where Ms. Grey will be seated.
