The Weeknd: The Grammys are corrupt | Recording Academy responds

Another, more likely, possibility is one that Variety nodded to in an article earlier this year: whether The Weeknd is considered a pop or R&B act. While that factor would have played little role in him being left off of the three main categories for which he is eligible (Album, Song and Record of the Year), it’s entirely possible that the screening committees, which determine which releases are appropriate for their respective categories, may have decided that he didn’t fit their categories: In other words, the Pop committee may have considered him R&B and the R&B committee considered him Pop.

So getting backlash for fusing genres :rlynow_britney_really_clasped_um_ok_seriously:. How non-progressive of the Grammys to ignore an artist who is creative/inventive enough to make multi genre hits :well_cookie_monster_point_blue_black:. It's rather anti evolution, musically speaking :beyfedup_beyonce_sunglasses_fed_up_annoyed_ok_wow_smh:

His label refused to pay for his grammy.  Say what it really is. 

What a stupid explanation. Then how come ‘Yummy’, which is not pop nor R&B, but utter trash, gets nominated?

I was over the Grammys after they snubbed Blackout .....    the fact that Britney, Mariah, Madonna etc hardly have any but a song like YUMMY is nominated still blows my mind .

his tweet definitely made me cringe, it felt entitled. Like, just because you have a song that's a hit doesn't mean it's worthy of a grammy. They're supposed to be about quality, not commercial success.

Screw the grammy's tho. They definitely are corrupt. I just think rich celebrities whining about not getting nominated for a gold trophy is cringey and makes them look desperate for validation.

When taylor swift didnt get nominated for AOTY she said “I’ll make a better álbum”. Male artists claim it’s corruption. Effing double standards, if lana, lorde,taylor,whoever, made a claim like that everyone would be like “cancel party time pals”.
