Looks like the 2013 Grammy Awards will be Ocean-sized. That's right: Frank Ocean, who is up for an armload of honors at this year's Grammys, has been added to the list of performers confirmed for the 55th annual ceremony, which CBS will broadcast live on Sunday, Feb. 10 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Frank Ocean may have had a bang-up year in 2012, thanks to his critically lauded and universally adored 'Channel Orange' album, but his New Year's Eve and first few days of 2013 started off on a sour note. As TMZ reports, the singer was pulled over for speeding and busted for having pot on his person.
This year has turned out to be a big one for so-called urban music in the world of indie rock, with hip-hop artist Kendrick Lamar's 'good kid, m.A.A.d city' album beating out Frank Ocean's 'Channel Orange' to top hipster bible Pitchfork's Top 50 Albums of 2012 list. The rest of the Top 10, listed below, is rounded out by albums from several Pitchfork regulars, including Grimes, Beach House and Grizzly Bear.
