What other celebrity slammed the Grammys?
The Weeknd, along with Zayn Malik, criticized the Academy for not nominating his album, After Hours for an award.
The singer tweeted back in November 2020: "The Grammys remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency…"
But after the Blinding Lights singer's rant, Mason Jr denied there was a conspiracy to keep him from being nominated.
After stating it's hard to predict the voters’ decisions, Mason Jr told the Associated Press: “You know, there’s so many nominations and there’s only so many slots, it’s really tough to predict what the voters are going to vote for in any given year. I try not to be too surprised.”
He also released a statement after the musician slammed the academy, explaining some that “unfortunately, every year, there are fewer nominations than the number of deserving artists.”
He continued: “We understand that The Weeknd is disappointed at not being nominated. I was surprised and can empathize with what he’s feeling."
