The Weeknd Opens Up About GRAMMYs Snub: “We Did Everything Right”

Published: Friday 29th Jan 2021 by Ryan

When the 2021 GRAMMY nominations were announced for the upcoming ceremony, The Weeknd caused quite the stir when he and his album ‘After Hours’ were notably absent from the list.

Now, he opened up to Billboard about his lack of nominations and the fall out that occurred between him and the GRAMMYs after.

His words below…

“I use a sucker punch as an analogy. Because it just kind of hit me out of nowhere. I definitely felt…I felt things. I don’t know if it was sadness or anger. I think it was just confusion. I just wanted answers.”

“Like, ‘What happened?’ We did everything right, I think. I’m not a cocky person. I’m not arrogant. People told me I was going to get nominated. The world told me. Like, ‘This is it; this is your year.’ We were all very confused.”

He then went on to say that the GRAMMYs “mean nothing” to him now and that his main focus right now is delivering a stellar performance at the Super Bowl.

    He did have a really great year. Grammy nominations aren’t a guaranteed but he should’ve been nominated for various awards!

    He needs to get over it. Now they mean nothing to him? Is that because HE didn’t anything because some of his peers actually got nominations. Quit whining. The Grammys are about substance. Not streaming sales.

  10. bllaac n whyt bitchzz January 29, 2021

    The party agrees with the snub

  11. King+Khia January 29, 2021

    He should’ve consulted with Beyoncé on how to buy awards.

  12. JT January 29, 2021

    Dude needs to get over it. He has a few Grammys and there are artists more talented and influential who’ve never even won one (Queen, 2Pac, Janis Joplin, The Who, Guns N Roses. Run DMC, Diana Ross, etc. etc. etc. etc.). Mariah Carey has been screwed by the Grammys for years. Boo-f*king-, hoo.

    If taylor and ariana get noms than he should

  14. J January 30, 2021

    Y’all still watch the Grammys? I think the last one I went up for was when Rihanna took Whitney’s soul while performing “We Found Love”
