As crazy of a year 2020 has been with the pandemic, protests around the world and a president that is trying his darndest not to move out of the White House for The Weeknd musically it has been a smokin hot year. Jay-Z gave The Weeknd the nod to be the Super Bowl halftime show entertainment, he then was nominated for 8 American Music Award’s walking away with 3, Male Artist, Album, Song Soul/R&B, of the year. So one would think that he would have stock piled just as many 2021 Grammy nominations. Well the Academy released it’s list of nominations for 2021 and The Weeknd got none. And The Grammy snub has sent The Weeknd to The Hills.
I only call you when it’s half-past five, The only time that I’ll be by your side,I only love it when you touch me, not feel me, When I’m f****d up, that’s the real me
The Weeknd took to his social media to blast The Grammy’s saying that they are corrupt and they owe him and his fans transparency.
Word on the street is that the Grammy’s gave The Weeknd a light weight ultimatum he could either perform for The Super Bowl or the Super Bowl of music The Grammy’s but not both.
The good news from the 2021 Grammy nomination list is that the Bey Hive is all a buzz with Queen Bey, Beyonce’, being the leader of the nomination pack with 9. Kanye West that literally took a wiz on the Grammy’s in an IG video was nominated for one in The Christian Category. [see complete list here]
The Grammy’s will air January 31, 2021 on CBS.
