News Nuggets: Kanye West plans to snub the Grammys

Kanye West criticizes the Grammys for continued snubs, refuses to attend: “How many Grammys do we have? … Eighteen Grammys. All in the black categories, though. But nonetheless, 18. I love Maroon 5, but when I lost Best New Artist to Maroon 5 … you know what I mean? Or when ‘Watch the Throne‘ and ‘Dark Fantasy,’ neither of them got nominated for Album of the Year, you know what I mean? Or when ‘N—-s in Paris’ didn’t get nominated for Record of the Year, you know what I mean? So don’t expect to see me at the Grammys this year, you know what I mean?!” HUFFINGTON POST

  1. He’s right. Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was easily the best album of last year. Sure, Adele’s cultural success and relevance made her a suitable winner. But that doesn’t change how Kanye didn’t even get a nomination. Yuck.

  2. Kanye West criticizes the Grammys for continued I love Maroon 5, but when I lost Best New Artist to Maroon 5 … you know what I mean? Or when ‘Watch the Throne’ and ‘Dark Fantasy,’ neither of them got nominated for Album of the Year, you know what I mean? Or when ‘N—-s in Paris’ didn’t get nominated for Record of the Year, you know what I mean? So don’t expect to see me at the Grammys this year, you know what I mean? after reading this article this is what I say to all of that, who care, you know what I mean. so much more trouble in the world than to let Mr. cry baby West fuck with my mind. I don’t like his music anyway. just because someone told you that he was great and you fell for it . I don’t care how many awards he has. YOU ALL BEEN TRICKED

  3. I want to personally THANK Kanye for not attending the Grammys. It has always been a source of aggravation in the past years just even seeing that SOB and especially when he is on stage and tries to sing (if that’s what he calls it). I can relax and actually enjoy the Grammys from beginning to end this year. Thank you Kanye.
