Justin Bieber laughed off his bout of indigestion at a recent concert, but his Grammy lockout might be an even tougher swallow. He's one of the biggest stars in pop, and his new album "Believe" was universally acclaimed for its vocal virtuosity and sonic maturation. But the academy didn't agree, and shut him out of every major category. If there were a year to welcome the Biebs into the rare air of Grammy acclaim, this was it - but the voters were like "Bieber, Bieber, Bieber -- no."
