File under "Oh, for fuck's sake": The Grammys are no longer just a mostly meaningless awards program. Starting this week, Grammy is also a brand. That's right–come Thursday, you can get Grammy hoodies, tees, leather jackets, belts, blazers, and more. Um, did they forget Grammy sweat socks and Grammy leg-warmers? For shame!
