Drake almost finds humor in the Grammys which inexplicably snubbed The Weeknd, essentially saying those little trophies really don’t mean crap.
Drake said Wednesday night, “I think we should stop allowing ourselves to be shocked every year by the disconnect between impactful music and these awards and just accept that what once was the highest form of recognition may no longer matter to the artists that exist now and the ones that come after.”
And, then the zinger … “It’s like a relative you keep expecting to fix up but they just can’t change their ways.”
As we reported, on the surface it made no sense The Weeknd ended up with goose eggs when the noms were announced … given the success of “After Hours” and especially “Blinding Lights.” The Weeknd, who calls the Grammys “corrupt,” believes he was snubbed because the Grammys did not want him to dilute his Grammy performance with a Super Bowl performance — a ridiculous ask and one The Weeknd rejected. He thinks he was overlooked because of spite.
