Metallica’s James Hetfield discussed the Grammy snafu recently. Hetfield said that it started with the lack of introduction and then the mic not working, he said he felt embarrassed and then really angry. He also said that while they enjoyed doing the song with Lady Gaga, he doesn’t have any plans to work with her or any pop singers in the future. He went on to say that working with her was cool because she likes to push boundaries like they do.
