Hairstylist Ursula Stephen says that Rihanna's 'do "typically changes depending on what’s on our agenda, what she’s wearing, or how she’s feeling."

Today's Grammy Awards in LA gave music's biggest names a chance to mingle inside the show once the red carpet wrapped up. Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart laughed it up with Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban in the audience. Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres got goofy with Katy Perry, who also hung out with pal Allison Williams in the crowd. Ellen met up with Adele backstage and Lena Dunham shared a moment with Taylor Swift. Click through for more fun moments from the Grammys!
The red carpet at the Grammy Awards was filled with beautiful, talented ladies including Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Katy Perry, but there were some high-profile women who opted to skip the media wall and headed straight inside. Why would Carey Mulligan, Jessica Biel and Lena Dunham miss another photo opportunity? Perhaps because the actresses were simply there to support their musical beaus, who were either nominated or performed, or both. Jessica had a front row seat next to Jay-Z to watch her husband, JT, perform two songs from his upcoming album The 20/20 Experience, and Carey was in the audience when her husband Marcus Mumford sang with his group Mumford & Sons. Lena was thrilled when her guitarist boyfriend Jack Antonoff, from the band fun., won an award, and just weeks after she thanked him in her Golden Globes speech he returned the favour.

The Grammy Awards took over the The Staples Center in downtown LA today with some of the hottest names in music stepping out to celebrate the year's achievements. Our US editors were on the red carpet capturing all the fun while stars like Alicia Keys, Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake and Guy Sebastian, who performed at a pre-Grammys event with Lupe Fiasco and was there to support his "Battle Scars" collaborator, kept fans updated on the festivities by posting pics to their social media accounts.
Gotye has won all three Grammy Award categories he was nominated in! Earlier in the day, during the Grammy’s pre-show telecast, his album Making Mirrors won best alternative music album and his song "Somebody That I Used to Know," featuring Kimbra, took the award for best pop performance by a duo or group. And then, just moments ago, the Australian singer received the record of the year honour for the same song, beating "Lonely Boy" by The Black Keys, "Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson, "We Are Young" by fun., "Thinkin Bout You" by Frank Ocean, and "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" by Taylor Swift.
The award was presented by the one and only Prince, who said just before announcing the winner, "I love this song." Kimbra was beside herself as they accepted their award as earlier in the day she had tweeted, "Prince will be at @TheGRAMMYs presenting an award tonight. Breathe, breathe," and she thanked him briefly in her speech.
The honours mean Gotye (real name Wally De Backer) is the first Australian artist in history to win multiple Grammys on one night. Congratulations to Gotye and Kimbra!
