GRAMMY Chief Apologizes To Tiffany Haddish After Actress Detailed Pay Dispute

Published: Thursday 10th Dec 2020 by Sam

GRAMMY head Harvey Mason Jr. has issued a public apology to Tiffany Haddish.

Find out why below…

In an interview with Variety, the actress opened up about a unique development in the run-up to the hotly anticipated show.

The comic shared that she was asked to host 2021 GRAMMY premiere show, which is live-streamed, precedes the main ceremony, and features the awards not handed out on the telecast.

However, she says she declined the unpaid gig after it was suggested that she pay for her own way for hair, make-up, and wardrobe.

Now, Mason is speaking up and out so as to do right by Haddish, who he also says he’s spoken to personally.

“It’s just been brought to my attention that the Recording Academy invited Tiffany Haddish to host this year’s Premiere ceremony. Unfortunately and without my knowing, the talent booker working for the Academy told Ms. Haddish that we wouldn’t even cover her costs while she hosted this event for us.

To me that was wrong. I’m frustrated by that decision. It was a lapse in judgment, it was in poor taste, and it was disrespectful to the creative community — I’m part of the creative community and I know what that feels like, and it’s not right,” added Mason, who is a veteran songwriter, producer and musician.

Thankfully, Ms. Haddish was gracious enough to allow me to have a conversation with her. I apologized to her personally, I apologized from the Academy, and I expressed to her my regret and my displeasure about how this went down and how it was handled. And I will say, Tiffany, we are sorry and thank you for allowing me to speak on it.”

Well said!

    The same ish Mo’nique has spent a decade speaking on.

    THey want YOU to pay out of pocket just to add ‘hosted the Grammy’s’ on your portfolio?

    Your compensation is merely hosting The Grammy Awards?!

    I would’ve said No too. F that. 🤷🏾‍♂️🚶🏽‍♂️

    On another site it was stated that the PRE-Grammy’s ceremony is NOT sponsored by CBS but by the GRAMMY’s a not-for-profit organization and that previous PRE-Grammy hosts cover their own costs because its a not-for-profit sponsored affair. I noticed that he did NOT state that it WAS covered so I will go by the information on the other site that I read.

      It doesn’t matter.

      No one is working for free unless they already have major coin.

      A hosting gig pre Grammy or post show, deserves some kind of compensation

      It is a job like any other.

      • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) December 10, 2020

        Boy bye. The only thing pressed here is the panini I’m having for dinner. This is my one and only account Dear Danzou 💋. What I look like…you?? Stop with the clownery Danzou …it’s unbecoming. LMAO 🤡🤡🤡🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻😂😂💁🏼‍♂️💁🏼‍♂️

      • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) December 10, 2020

        And this “coco the clown” thing you’ve been doing is NOT the business. Try a little creativity. Or perhaps you’re simply regulated to saying “messy bottom” or “meet me in the streets” or “give me your Instagram/Facebook.” If that’s the case, you’re a sad clown indeed! 🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻💋💋😂😂

      • Fancy BISH December 10, 2020

        I love how scared you are of my COCO the CLOWN, I say what I want and take what I want. You know you have multiple accounts COCO the CLOWN, enjoy your panini from the reduced section as you can’t afford to eat rich people food on your H&M wage 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

      • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) December 10, 2020

        🥱 you’re boring Danzou. Start using your Misty Knight account please. She’s more interesting. I’m glad you retired that “Latina Chick” account though…she was a racist b****. LMAO 🤡🤡🤡💁🏼‍♂️💁🏼‍♂️💋

    This isn’t the first time the Academy has been accused of bias, corruption and unfair practices. He clearly needs to do a better job vetting the people who work under him, and that includes taking a second look at the voting board.

    No one will be watching, anyway. There’s the same music and dance acts for much cheaper: @ strip clubs.
