Interviewer:You were a feature performer on Kanye West's latest record and now you find yourself up against him at the Grammys... he kind of has a reputation for being competitive at award shows...
Interviewer:First of all, if you win, do you think he'll let you finish your acceptance speech?
Justin:Yeah, maybe... he will. Well what's funny is, I have to defend Kanye for a real quick sec here, because I really like him and he's been so good to me.

so when i went to coachella last weekend, i went in through the vip/production entrance because i was working, it was stop and go traffic and while driving, we saw justin vernon in his car and threw him laffy taffy from our car to his. it was pure magic.
holy shit stop it. are you kidding me with this? is “throwing him your laffy taffy” some kind of metaphor because
You will cry. Just face the facts. When I went to the Bon Iver concert I was like "Chill out, it's only a concert, you'll be fine' .... Then Perth began and I was like "SOMEONE HAND ME THE FREAKING TISSUES"
oh without a doubt. I will be shocked if I don’t have the same reaction you did. did they open with Perth? because that’s just game over from the start… you don’t come back from that…
