Kanye West may be one of many largest names within the music business, however he made the choice to skip the 2019 Grammys for a collection of fairly attention-grabbing causes.
For anybody who's been sleeping on popular culture for the previous 10 years, Ye has had an advanced and fractious relationship with the occasion since time started, along with his current album failing to safe nominations in any classes.
Still, he did handle to bag a nomination for Producer of the Year, so why not throw on a swimsuit and trigger a little bit of chaos once more?
Interestingly sufficient, Ye hasn't attended the Grammys since again in 2015 when he and Taylor Swift briefly known as off their feud and posed for a couple of photos collectively.
Just a 12 months beforehand, he had spoken out in opposition to the committee for snubbing him on the Album of the Year nomination.
At the time, he made his emotions very clear: "Since when was making artwork about getting wealthy? ... Remind me once more why we on this shit? Remind me once more why the Grammys [can] suck my dick," he stated throughout a live performance.
He later advised E! News: "The Grammys, if they need actual artists to maintain coming again, they should cease taking part in with us. We aren't going to play with them no extra. Beck must respect artistry, he ought to have given his award to Beyoncé."
All in all, it seems like Kanye does not at all times agree with among the choices made on the Grammys and has lately made the choice to steer clear from the controversy altogether.
Probably an excellent transfer.
