Congrats To Arcade Fire!

I just want to give a shout out to Arcade Fire for their big win at the Grammy Awards: Album of the Year for 'The Suburbs.' Well done, especially considering they beat out Eminem and Lady Gaga. Oh, and by the way, after Justin Bieber lost out for Best New Artist to Esperanza Spalding, some of his fans went nuts. And there's nothing more vicious than a group of 13 year-old girls. Apparently, Bieber fans went on Esperanza's Wikipedia page and started adding random facts, misstatements and insults such as...

- Recently, she won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist at the 53rd Grammy Awards by stealing it from Justin Bieber.

- B**** PLEASE DIE!

- WHO THE FUDGE ARE YOU?

- JUSTIN BIEBER DESERVED IT, GO DIE IN A HOLE.

At least Bieber's fans are polite, replacing the "f word" with "fudge" and saying "please" when asking her to die. But shouldn't they be mad at the Grammy voters? All of the posts have been removed from Wikipedia, but if you'd like to see the history of what was going on online last night, click here and keep clicking next edit.
