XXXTentacion, who was shot to death in June 2018, was rejected from the Grammys' in memoriam segment on Sunday night. According to a source, representatives for the late rapper requested repeatedly that the Recording Academy recognize the artist, whose "Sad!" was one of the most consumed songs of 2018. But because of the rapper's history […]
As if that Beyonce/ Taylor Swift/ VMAs incident from 2009 wasn’t enough evidence, Kanye West has proven once again that he is pretty loyal when it comes to supporting artists that he feels have been snubbed. This time around, swap Beyonce for Frank Ocean and the VMAs for the Grammys and you have yourself Kanye’s latest rant. Yes, Yeezy has threatened to boycott the prestigious Grammy Awards because he is absolutely fuming that Frank Ocean’s albums ‘Blonde’ and 'Endless’ were not submitted for consideration for the ceremony.
Chrissy Teigen has weighed in on the feud between Taylor Swift and Kanye West, admitting that she found Swift’s Grammy acceptance speech “awkward”. During her impassioned speech, she subtly directed a dig towards West, saying: “I want to say to all the young women out there—there are going to be people along the way who are going to try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. In fact, Teigen – who is good friends with Kanye West and his family, and has worked out with Swift at NYC’s Body By Simone – was left feeling uncomfortable by the whole situation.
Adele has revealed that she cried “all day” after experiencing sound issues during her highly anticipated performance at the Grammy Awards. The Hello hitmaker later explained to fans what had gone wrong, writing on Twitter: “The piano mics fell on to the piano strings, that’s what the guitar sound was.
Selena Gomez was on-hand to congratulate Taylor Swift at last night’s Grammys, where she picked up not one, not two, but three huge awards. Selena also tweeted: “I got to be in my best friends first Grammy award winning music video!!!!!!?!”, sharing a link to Taylor’s video. Elsewhere on the night, Taylor and her ‘1989′ album also picked up the gongs for Best Pop Vocal Album and Album of the Year, an award she’s now won twice.
It was a huge night for Taylor Swift at last night’s Grammys, as she picked up the gongs for Best Video (for ‘Bad Blood’), Best Pop Vocal Album for ‘1989′ and Album of the Year for the second time (this time for her ‘1989′ album). During her acceptance speech for Album of the Year, Taylor took the opportunity to encourage young women to focus on themselves and their work and ignore anyone who tries to undercut their success. The speech also seemingly served as a response to Kanye West, after he revealed those not-so-great ‘Famous’ lyrics: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.
Kanye West has been his truest Kanye West self this last week or so and he has arguably peaked by claiming that he will boycott the Grammy Awards if he doesn’t win Album of the Year. Although the rapper himself isn’t nominated, Kanye is credited as a producer on one track on The Weeknd’s album, so maybe he’ll be able to live vicariously through that. Over the years the 38-year-old has nabbed himself a whopping 21 Grammy awards, including Best Rap Album in 2012, but that doesn’t seem to be enough for Yeezus, who vows to win at least 100 throughout his career.
It would be somewhat of a surprise if Taylor Swift went to Katy Perry’s party this weekend.
