Congressmen fitted with grills for Grammys recording session

(Brendan Hoffman/WireImage)
Bad news if you just got yourself a grill. Looks like they’re totally over. Our evidence: Congressmen are now wearing grills. Witness the newly bedazzled mouth of Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.), left. An off-hours singer and guitar-player, Crowley was part of a group of musically-inclined lawmakers (Ted Deutch, Tom Rooney, Linda Sanchez) tapped Monday to record a track that will be debuted next week at the annual GRAMMYs on the Hill awards, part of a regular music-industry lobbying push. Their producer, D.C.-based James McKinney, right, presented each of them with their own Lil Wayne-style jaw jewelry. (Not real gold, so calm down.)


Let you see my what? After the jump, a flashback to the apex of grill culture, circa 2005, with Nelly’s “Grillz.”
