Pope Benedict XVI has reacted to this year’s Grammys results by announcing that he will be stepping down from the papacy at the end of the month.
It is understood that the Pope’s position as leader of the Catholic Church became untenable following the awarding of the Best Album Grammy to Mumford & Sons’ Babel.
The 85 year-old pontiff has repeatedly spoken out about the perils of Babel this year, urging the world to turn their ears instead to the word of God.
“The Grammys was the final straw,” said papal blogger, Anton Zogno.
“The Pope is no fool. When people actually believe that Babel is a better album than Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange, you know Satan has won.”
Sources within the Vatican have denied that the Pope’s decision had anything to do with being snubbed once again in each of the Grammys’ Latin categories.
