How The Weeknd Dominated the BBMAs After Shocking Grammys Snub
“The Grammys remain corrupt,” he tweeted after the nominations were revealed in November, taking the first shot at the Recording Academy’s voting process. “You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency…”
His tweet opened the floodgates for artists to voice their frustrations.
Teyana Taylor called out that the Best R&B Album category had no female nominees, while Zayn Malik tweeted, “F–k the grammys and everyone associated. Unless you shake hands and send gifts, there’s no nomination considerations. Next year I’ll send you a basket of confectionary.”
Halsey, who’s been nominated twice as a featured artist, spoke out in the wake of her snub about alleged “bribes” and other business dealings being a part of the nomination game.
