What are friends for, right?

DETAILS: Meet Grammy Best New Artist Nominee: Bon Iver 

Yesterday, Ed Droste was noticeably bummed after realizing that his band, Grizzly Bear, wasn’t nominated for any Grammys. 

He took it hard, and he went to Twitter to vent:


Feeling sorry for himself, Ed then tweeted to fellow indie star Justin Vernon, who is the lead singer of Bon Iver, a band that won a Grammy last year for Best New Artist.

He tweeted:

Justin, being a good chap, tweeted some inspirational words to him:

These words aren’t just Justin trying to be a good friend, either. Even though he has a Grammy on his shelf, Justin has sh*ted on the awards in the past. In an interview with the NY Times last year, Justin said this:

“I don’t think the Bon Iver record is the kind of record that would get nominated for a Grammy. I would get up there and be like, ‘This is for my parents, because they supported me,’ because I know they would think it would be stupid of me not to go up there. But I kinda felt like going up there and being like: ‘Everyone should go home, this is ridiculous. You should not be doing this. We should not be gathering in a big room and looking at each other and pretending this is important.

And who is that award given by? It’s like they think it’s literally handed down by the musical-history gods. And I don’t know who the voters are. Like, I have a friend who’s a voter who was like, ‘I had to be a voter because I don’t trust the other voters.’ And I was like, ‘Me either!’ And it’s just not important and people spend too much time thinking about it.”

We always got to show mad respect to a dude who isn’t scared to bite his tongue!
