Mariah Carey Drags The Grammys: I Don’t Give A Damn About Them

Mariah Carey covers the latest issue of V magazine.

I am so happy she did, because the interview she gave is already a classic.

In her new sit-down chat with the mag, Mimi trolls the Grammys. It’s worth mentioning Mariah felt the Recording Academy snubbed her in years’ past when she either lost in categories or was snubbed for Album of the Year and Best New Artist in 1991, Best Pop Vocal Album & Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in 1996 and
Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in 1998 (my opinion). Now, she doesn’t give a damn, dahling.

“In the music business, if you care about the Grammys and submitting your stuff before a certain time frame, you want a single out in the summer, and then you want your record [out] before the Grammy [consideration] deadline, which has changed,” she says.

“Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn. I mean. I have five Grammys. That’s cute. There’s people that have been doing this half the time that have twice as many [Grammys]. I won two Grammys the first year that I started, but after that, [the Grammys] are like, ‘We don’t go with the people that are selling a lot records and are popular; we’re gonna go the opposite way.’ So I got screwed out of certain years. I wasn’t bitter about it. I was just like, okay, well, I guess I’m not standing here barefoot onstage and trying to be a certain way. I’m just me.”

Mariah also opens up about being a business woman, innovating pop-rap crossovers and more. Read the full interview here and check out the entire shoot below:
