Get real! Folklore is NOT an Alternative album. It’s bland Pop. Delusional Swifties tell themselves anything. YUCK!December 8, 2020 at 5:57 pm #1203904441
Everyone saying a Folklore win will be a universally loved thing sounds dumb. However, I do feel like it’s the least controversial pick.
Jacob HAIM and Black Pumas are unknown. Dua and Jhenés albums weren’t big enough. Coldplays nom is TRASH. Post isn’t particularly respected outside of people who like his music. Taylor’s got a nice middle ground of having a pretty well liked album that’s also known. There’ll definitely be some backlash when (let’s be real, it’s not even an if at this point) Folklore wins, but that’ll be more residual anger over the 1989 win if anything
! The claim in this post is disputedDecember 8, 2020 at 5:59 pm #1203904445
All of the Grammy backlash that actually matters has been (rightfully) directed at the Abel snub. From what I’ve been seeing, a lot of commentators have already accepted Swift’s win as something of an inevitability.
The real bloodbath is next year, with Beyoncé and Adele (and maybe even Kendrick) releases all on the horizon.December 8, 2020 at 6:22 pm #1203904464
To be honest, since Taylor is nominated for AOTY again, there will be a split winner this 63rd Grammys.
AOTY – folklore
ROTY – Don’t Start Now
SOTY – everything i wanted
BNA – Phoebe Bridgers
P.S.: I will be repeat of 2010 Grammys.December 8, 2020 at 6:34 pm #1203904476
black pumas def isn’t winning, but I was surprised with how much I liked their album! Great duoDecember 8, 2020 at 7:07 pm #1203904504

Exactly. Everyone I’ve seen has predicted her as a leading contender to win and, if they didn’t pick her as their first choice, said that she would be a deserving winner who made a quality album. Of course there will be backlash but it’s not as though this is an album like reputation or Lover that had mixed reception.

Honey, I realize Taylor Swift’s fans are white people. But, my goodness! There is no fucking way to justify Swift winning AOTY 3 times, while Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, etc. have NEVER won. The racism is real!December 8, 2020 at 7:45 pm #1203904536
Plus add to the fact that it tells a lot that the Grammys are potentially choosing her to give the honor to. They’ve literally avoided giving Aretha (who was never nominated in GF), Joni, Beyoncé, Madonna, Bjork and Janet even one . All of these women were far more deserving especially during their prime. It’s not a shot at Taylor but at the entire Recording Academy. They purposely kicked out The Weeknd (not even a fan of his but it’s undeniable), Fiona and Harry just to make it all the more easier. And people actually call this nonsense “prestigious”?December 8, 2020 at 7:52 pm #1203904551
For the last time, they did not purposely kick out The Weeknd. It’s highly unlikely that he made the top 20, for whatever reason. That’s not corruption or them purposely kicking him out. Maybe it shows low participation and that the voting system is flawed but it’s not like they intentionally gave him zero noms.

The Weekend and his high horse deserved that zero nominationDecember 8, 2020 at 8:10 pm #1203904571
Honey, even Stevie Wonder can see that The Weeknd was intentionally blocked in the General Field and purposely removed from the Pop Field. The Grammys are rigga morris. The excuses white people come up with to defend their precious Taylor Swift. BARF!December 8, 2020 at 8:17 pm #1203904577
And it’s so funny to me how you guys resort to calling her fans white unprovoked when most of us are Asians. Most of her fan base on twt is literally Asian. The world doesn’t revolve around America, please grow up.
