1. Wild hairstyles, barely-there outfits and a well-timed flash of Madonna's butt appear to be dominating the mainstream entertainment coverage of 2015's Grammy Awards red carpet.

    Because it's never not news when a very famous 57-year-old woman reveals her thong-clad posterior for the cameras, Twitter was also buzzing about these things during tonight's pre-show.

    It was an awkward moment between Kanye West and Ryan Seacrest, however, that really got people talking (about more than who wore the most outrageous dress, anyway.)

  3. The clip above was broadcast live during E!'s annual red carpet special and quickly uploaded to Vine by New York Times culture reporter David Itzkoff. It has since been viewed more than 300,000 times on Vine alone in just under two hours.

    The contentious six seconds captured in the video show the tail-end of E! host Ryan Seacrest's short interview with West and his wife, Kim Kardashian, ahead of the Grammy Awards.

    Seacrest had asked the 21-time Grammy winner how he continues to innovate in terms of producing new sounds and music.

    “I just get bored with things really easily and try to find something that excites me,” said West, to which Seacrest replied "So that Attention-deficit disorder is a good thing...”

    In typical Kanye West fashion, the artist — who's never publicly stated that he's been diagnosed with attention-deficit disorder — shot back with a subtle, yet intentionally pointed quip: "Oh most definitely... it's also just called thinking."

    Then, he smiled and Kanye shrugged.
  4. The burn did not go unnoticed.
  5. Attention-deficit disorder and Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are two of the most common mental health conditions in children, according to Statistics Canada.

    Rates of both adults and kids diagnosed with these conditions have been climbing steeply since the early 2000's, and while there is much debate over whether or not the population is being over-diagnosed, the detrimental effects of living with ADD and ADHD have been well-documented — and well-circulated over the past decade.

    Conversations about the misuse of mental health terms by non-medical professionals, often in the context of describing character traits (ie; "OCD," "schizophrenic," or even simply "crazy,") have been ongoing in recent years.

    Whether Seacrest was simply using the term "ADD" to describe West's admitted proclivity towards becoming "bored" easily or if West had previously informed his wife's fellow E! star of a medical diagnosis is not known.

    Either way, some Twitter users were offended that Seacrest had used the term at all.
  6. Others were pleased that the disorder had been mentioned, specifically so that West could address it (to their liking) in front of a national audience.
  7. For those interested, Seacrest also asked West why he wasn't smiling in a recent photo of himself with Kardashian, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen at a Waffle House.
