There are still a few updates coming with this:
In A Leaked Memo, The Recording Academy Says It’s Investigating Sexual Harassment & Corruption Claims
Recording Academy in Mediation with Ousted CEO Deborah Dugan
I’m wondering if might she end up getting a nice payout (perhaps tied into some sort of consulting role) where she can’t speak due to an NDA and all the accusations get swept under the carpet. Then business as usual for the 2021 awards show.March 15, 2020 at 12:34 am #1203381736
Deborah Dugan Fires Back at Recording Academy, Cites Evidence of Alleged Attempts to ‘Influence’ Grammy Noms
But who is the “superstar” they are talking about here?
“I think there’s a case to be made to [superstar] that a performance of [song] from [album] on our show, should it be nominated,’” it continues, “‘and that a blowout performance of that song, which IS a Grammy song, might . . . So, should there be some discussion in a certain room at your meetings next week for Record, Album and Song, and if it involves making a choice between [one album] vs. [a second album], my thought from knowing [superstar] since [superstar] was a child, is that [superstar] might see the wisdom of a [ ] performance [of a song from the second album] . . . I’m jus sayin. Ken.’ Mason responded, ‘Gotcha. Thanks Ken.’”
They appear to be saying that Ken Ehrlich attempted to influence the nominations, so that an artist he knows, could perform a certain song that he wanted on the show. Was that for the awards show we just saw in January 2020, or could it have been earlier?March 15, 2020 at 2:35 pm #1203382237
“On October 24, 2019,” the document reads, “Mr. Ehrlich, the Producer of the Grammys, sent an email to Ms. Dugan and Mr. Mason and outrageously attempted to use his position to influence nomination votes.
that was this year.
the artist/song in question was likely “Lover” by Taylor Swift.
