A-List Musicians Are Boycotting the Grammys This Year
What do Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Drake, and Frank Ocean all have in common?
Theyâ€™re all allegedly skipping the Grammys this year.
Bieber and Drake arenâ€™t coming because they think the Grammys arenâ€™t â€œrelevant or representative especially when it comes to young singers,â€ according to a TMZ source.
Kanye just thinks the Grammys are racist.
â€œLetâ€™s put it this way,â€ a source to Kanye told TMZ. â€œHeâ€™s received 21 Grammys, but when he was head-to-head against a white singer, he never won.â€
Granted this year heâ€™s not nominated in any categories where heâ€™s head-to-head with a white singer but who can argue with calling an old-school award show racist?
Last year Kanye tweeted to the Recording Academy president, â€œYou like your black people a certain way also. I feel the Grammy awarding system is way off and completely out of touch.â€
And Frank Ocean thinks Frank Ocean thinks the Grammys are both over and racist, so he didnâ€™t even bother to submit Blonde to be considered for a golden gramophone.
Honestly, they all have a point.
Who even uses gramophones anymore anyway besides old people who may or may not be holding onto some deep-seated racism?
When you have millions of followers, why do you really need a Grammy?
Itâ€™s fun to take shots out of, but does it really matter?
And honestly, if more A-listers decide to skip it, the people at home watching will skip it too.
Why else would you tune into a boring awards show if not for the celebrities?
You can find out who wins on Twitter.
Watch out, Grammys.
You’re on thin ice right now.
