The Weeknd calls the Recording Academy "Grammupt" due to Grammy's snub
The weeknd has a word or two about being scolded by the Grammys.
The biggest shock of the 2021 Grammy nominations, announced on Tuesday, November 24th, was the complete absence of The Weeknd and its massive album After Hours. Obviously the artist himself was not pleased.
"The Grammys remain corrupt," the 30-year-old actor tweeted later that day. "You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency …"
He was certainly not the only artist to question the nomination process. Teyana Taylor released the all-male list of five nominees for this year's best R&B album and tweeted, "Y & # 39; all was better off saying only the best MALE R&B ALBUM because all I see is d – k in that category. "
Harvey Mason Jr., Interim President and CEO of The Recording Academy, Variety said shortly after the nominations were announced that he didn't believe the lack of nominations for The Weeknd implied a flawed voting process. He explained that the decision on the nominations for the four best "core" awards – best album, song, record and new artist – was due to the tastes of an electoral body of around 20 people.
