Despite his EIGHT nominations – and having won 21 Grammys in his career thus far – Kanye West is boycotting the awards. If you recall, back in the Fall of 2016, Mr. West was vocal about Frank Ocean’s album not being nominated. Ye’s response? “If Frank’s album is not nominated in no categories, I’m not showing up to the Grammys.” As for Drake, his absence is due to his current location, as he is overseas for his “Boy Meets World” Tour. Justin Bieber, on the other hand, who is nominated for “Album of the Year,” will also be a MIA because he feels the Grammys are “out of touch and arguably irrelevant.”
If you’re not boycotting the Grammys and want to watch, it airs February 12th! Maybe they’ll change their mind(s) by then.
