> Hell hath no fury like a Belieber scorned
> Justin Beiber's legions of followers were shaking their heads in
> dis-Belieb last night after jazz artist Esperanza Spalding beat the teen
> idol as the Grammy awards' best new artist. Shortly afterward, they took

> "Wow... #bieberwasrobbed. He so should have won best new artist!! No one
> even knows who this spalding chick is," wrote @victoryapl, and
> @mattdgren echoed her sentiment: "I've never heard of Esperanza Fever."
> @sarajoallocco noted, "Best New Artist should now be called Artist
> You'll Never Hear From Again," while @EugeneRamirez perhaps summed it up
> best: "The Grammy judges better watch their backs! A bunch of tween
> girls are out to get you now!"
> But the disses didn't stop there. Some fans also went to Spalding's
> Wikipedia page and added entries that were considerably more irate,
> including this sentiment: "She now has the 2011 Grammy for being the
> Best new Artist! Even though no one has ever heard of her! Yay!" (At the
> time of this post, Spalding's Wiki page - which had been down for a bit
> - was back up, and reflected a more reasonable tone. "On Thursday 2
> December 2010, Spalding became a Grammy nominee for 'Best New Artist,'"
> the page reads under "Critical Reception. "On February 13, Esperanza won
> the Grammy for Best New Artist.")
> If people didn't know who Spalding was last night, they certainly do
> today. As of this morning, her name was a trending topic on Twitter and
> reaction has been a bit more kind.
> "Her name is Esperanza Spalding. That's like... a Disney Princess and a
> basketball," wrote @kingsleyyy. "But congrats to her."
