According to TMZ, Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Frank Ocean, and Drake all intend to skip the 2017 Grammy Awards.
It all started with Frank Ocean, who didn’t even both submitting his album for Grammy consideration. Many think his album, Blonde, would be considered Best Album of the Year, but he thinks the Grammys are a dinosaur that doesn’t represent young, black artists.
Justin Bieber, who’s nominated for four Grammys, plans to be elsewhere as he doesn’t think the Grammys are relevant or representative when it comes to young singers.
Drake doesn’t plan on being there either, but he’ll be on tour in Europe (he’s nominated for 8 awards).
21-time Grammy winner, Kanye West, has 8 nominations for 2017 but doesn’t plan to be there.
TMZ says it’s not like the Oscars, there’s no real anger, the younger singers just find the Grammys are out of touch and arguably irrelevant.
