The Weeknd Called Out Grammy “Corrupt” For Snubbing Him
The Weeknd has openly voiced his disappointments with the Recording Academy following the news that After Hours got zero nominations for the 2021 Grammy Awards.
Taking to social media to end his quiet, the craftsman marked the Recording Academy “degenerate” and required its trustworthiness. “The Grammys stay degenerate,” The Weeknd composed. “You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency… ”
The XO Records head’s concise assertion shows up subsequent to Recording Academy interval president and CEO Harvey Mason Jr. “clarified” why After Hours returned home without any gestures. “Y’know, it truly comes down to the democratic body that chooses,” Mason Jr. said in a meeting. “We have eight selection spaces to fill in [the “Huge Four” classes: Best Album, Song, Record and New Artist], five in others, and the citizens vote in favor of their top choices. It’s truly fascinating, however.”
The Recording Academy boss kept on asserting that “all the records get the most attractive of reasonable deals” and that the board tunes in to all the music, yet reminds everybody that the panel isn’t permitted to decide on a task that is excluded from the best 20 (casted a ballot by the overall democratic field). Mason Jr. at that point declined to uncover if The Weeknd made the waitlist.
The Grammys remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency…
