Halsey Speaks Out After Lack Of GRAMMY Nominations: “It’s Not Always About the Music”

Published: Monday 30th Nov 2020 by Ryan

Halsey is getting some things off of her chest.

The ‘Without Me’ singer took to her Instagram Stories on November 28 to speak out about her lack of nominations for her album ‘Manic’ and its subsequent singles at the 2021 GRAMMY Awards.

Her words below:

“I’ve been thinking and wanted to choose my words carefully because a lot of people have extended sympathy and apology to me since the Grammy nominations.”

“The Grammys are an elusive process. It can often be about behind the scenes private performances, knowing the right people, campaigning through the grapevine, with the right handshake and ‘bribes’ that can be just ambiguous enough to pass as ‘not bribes.”

“It’s not always about the music or quality or culture. While I am THRILLED for my talented friends who were recognized this year, I am hoping for more transparency or reform. But I’m sure this post will blacklist me anyway.”

While Halsey may not have received any nominations at this year’s ceremony, she is no stranger to nominations. Previously, she racked up two nominations. One was for best pop duo/group performance for her smash hit ‘Closer’ with The Chainsmokers, and the other was for Album of the Year as a featured artist on Justin Bieber‘s ‘Purpose’ album.

With that, what are…

    No truer words have been stated, however, I feel as though some of these artists need to realize that the Grammy awards do not hold as much clout and prestige as they once did. Halsey has the distinction of being able to add “Grammy nominated artist” in front of her name, which is actually more than a lot of artists. Some of the greats have been nominated but never received an actual Grammy. At the end of the day, it’s better to be recognized for your body of work by a committee that actually means something, as opposed to play politics and sell your soul for accolades that aren’t as important as they once were. She’s been recognized by many other award shows, and sometimes, that should be enough.

    Thank you Halsey! ✅ The SCAMMYS are a joke lol…and no disrespect to the nominees! If there ever was a time I’d like Kanye to storm the stage and say that The Weeknd had one of the best albums of ALL TIME, now would be the time lol 😂 After Hours is Do The Right Thing! Snubbed now but will be talked about 30 years from now…whoever wins this year is Driving Miss Daisy lmao…need I say more? 👀🤳🏽

    It’s also not about the music when the play your song 6 times an hours on the radio.

  7. November 30, 2020

    I agree with her, it’s not all about the music as some might think, you have to brown-nose sometimes people who you know sometimes.. all maneuvers of politics. and more and more people and people with power are starting to notice.

  8. November 30, 2020

    she has good music too.

  9. XYZ November 30, 2020

    While I dont think that her Album was that good (you should be sad is great though), at least she doesnt come over as bitter. Her post is mature and is stating facts, unlike other artists who behave like little brats, just because they werent nominated.

  10. Paulo November 30, 2020

    Shut up you entitled untalented brat. You don’t deliver quality music and that’s that. Non singing ass ho

  11. Blah November 30, 2020

    Tacky tacky tacky.. in other words you are saying you are more deserving than those nominated. Which is an opinion take the L and keep making your generic music. Definitely confirmed her lack of authenticity, you doing it for artistic expression or clout? 🤷🏽‍♂️

    • XYZ December 1, 2020

      As if Megan is Grammy worthy. She is a twerking Ghetto b****, who is successful, but her music is tacky and Lyrics Like “Body-ody-ody-ody-ody-ody-ody-ody
      Ody-ody-ody-ody-ody-ody-ody (Mwah)
      Body crazy, curvy, wavy, big titties, lil’ waist” are not Grammy worthy….

      • Blah December 1, 2020

        I suppose the word “ opinion” which was used in my statement, is not a word you understand. And you clearly misunderstood the point , but I understand that there are people like you that just want to argue due to having nothing else going on. Be blessed 😂😜

  12. DC November 30, 2020

    Clearly jay z used these fake tactics to get Megan all those nominations it’s clear

    • Thee Stallion Hottie December 1, 2020

      Not Meg having you heated and pressed 24/7 sis. Please hold tight to your wig because come next year, Meg will be scalping you h*** bald and she will become a Grammy winner and you may proceed to cry about it.
