Before the big awards show took place Sunday night, we hit the official backstage gifting lounge at the GRAMMYs to check out all the cool gear that the stars get hooked up with. We saw everything from interesting PEPSI concoctions (coffee and cola, we do not recommend) to delicate truffles prepared by the same chef who treated the yummy treats to guests of the royal wedding—oh yeah, we’re quite classy. We watched artists like Skyler Grey, Chris Brown, LL Cool J, Wiz Khalifa and Nicki Minaj try on some sweet shades at the Solstice Sunglass Boutique and even saw stars receive a 24-karat gold nail polish manicure by Red Carpet Manicure; a tiny bottle that's worth up to five thousand dollars—insane, right? Along with checking out all the cool gear, we sent our report Vanessa Mujica to get the 411 on how super-producer/recording artist, Timbaland, spins on the 1’s and 2’s by the help from our friends over at Gibson Pro Audio.
