The Weeknd to continue not submitting music to Grammys

To you

 

but not to the 20,000 artists submitting their music every year.

It's good publicity, their label wants them to get nominated. It's not artistic merit, its all politics. Industry favorites & plants have been sweeping left and right. 

The sooner these awards shows are gone the better. I give it a few more years before the views and public interest get so low that they don't even do televized events anymore.

That certain fanbase talking about Abel being a sore loser like their fave doesn't meltdown each time she doesn't get nominated for a Grammy

I don’t believe he was cheated out of the Big 3 categories.  Big acts get snubbed from those categories all the time.  Look at Ed Sheeran 
The biggest issue is that he was snubbed from the pop categories, that already don’t have committees.  The Grammys never know how to categorize black artists that make pop music.  They always want to throw them in the RnB categories.  Blinding Lights is a pop song and After Hours is pop album, I’m glad that his team stood up for themselves and submitted them in the pop categories 

 

The Grammys have done nothing to stop their racial bias in the pop categories.  Yes Lizzo won best pop song recently, but many artists like The Weekend are being excluded from that category because of their skin color.  Abel should continue to speak out about it since the Grammys continue to do nothing to stop this problem.  

You know what, in his case it was the opposite. He did submit his music to R&B field but relegated to pop field. :bibliahh:

It’s hard to fully support his stance when we all know for a fact that he would’ve been sitting front row at the show if After Hours / Blinding Lights had been nominated :rip:

y'all are crazy he has every right to speak up about the injustice and unfair treatment

Exactly. I like that he’s sticking by his word, but also glad that he forced their hand.

We’ll see if anything actually changes though (most likely not) :matty:

I mean he has every right to feel the way he does.

 

Atleast, he's sticking to his guns. :clap3:

Just tag me Lmao

 

My fave has indeed been acting embarrassingly in the past and is just as guilty of having been a sore loser, and I’ll be the first to admit that. Is that what y’all wanted me to say?:)

 

Not y’all calling being anti-Grammys for “activism”:toofunny2:
