I actually am. I’m truly surprised that Justin Bieber was not nominated for one single Grammy. If you’ll remember, he won several big awards at the American Music Awards this year, including Artist of the Year. I was all set to hear about his Grammy nominations as well, but it turns out that they actually chose to give awards to some people who actually made good music: Mumford and Sons, Florence and the Machine, The Black Keys. I think that’s nice, don’t you?
You know who doesn’t think it’s so nice? Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter. Scooter is not pleased, not even a little bit. He was even displeased enough to discuss it on Twitter:
first…congrats to @carlyraejepsen . thought u deserved a best new artist nom, but proud Call Me Maybe got u 2 noms. so proud of u.
second….this time there wont be any wise words, no excuses, I just plain DISAGREE. The kid deserved it. Grammy board u blew it on this one
the hardest thing to do is transition, keep the train moving. the kid delivered. Huge succesful album, sold out tour, and won people over…
…this time he deserved to be recognized and I dont really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision i dont agree with.
so to all those nominated…you do deserve it. You worked hard and u earned it. Just feel like so did JB.
To his fans…looks like we get to stay the underdog a little longer. #BRINGIT
I got a lot more I can say but for now….Im gonna leave it at that. Congrats to all those who got nominated including our own CRJ
life is long, with many ups and downs, but we get to keep going, everyday brings a new opportunity. NOTHING GREAT EVER CAME EASY.
Oh man, do I ever disagree with Scooter’s disagreement. First of all, of course he had a successful album, and of course his tour sold out. But great popularity doesn’t always equal great talent, and I’m disappointed that I feel like I have to point this out. Just because some preteens feel weird feelings when they hear Justin Bieber sing does not mean that his music deserves any awards. Is that really difficult to understand? “The kid” released a single about “chillin’ by the fire while we eatin’ fondue.” Let’s just be real here.
Second of all, in what universe is Justin Bieber the underdog? I don’t have any commentary or anything to go along with that question, I’m just genuinely curious how anyone could think that.
Third of all, if Carly Rae Jepsen wins a Grammy, then I’m going to relocate to another planet where such travesties don’t occur.
Are you guys looking forward to the awards this year?
