The nominees for Album of the Year at the 2014 Grammy Awards come from multiple genres, including pop, rap and country. The contenders are Sara Bareilles' 'The Blessed Unrest,' Daft Punk's 'Random Access Memories,' Kendrick Lamar's 'Good Kid, m.A.A.d.

Bareilles didn't care, since she and Perry are pals and her song, with its poignant message about coming out, got more attention due to the association.
