Last weekend, a formerly-unknown jazz musician became a worldwide Twitter trend: Esperanza Spalding.
… I know.
I had never heard of her either prior to the Grammys. It was only after I'd caught up with all my celebrity gossip (university life can delay certain priorities) that I realized Justin Bieber, for once, actually got overthrown in the Twitterverse post-red carpet. Of course, there are quite a few 'Beliebers' running around saying some nasty things about Esperanza. Which makes me think: do underdogs ever truly win?
