The 55th Annual Grammy Award Nominations were released yesterday covering the spectrum of artists from Mumford & Sons to Frank Ocean to Carly Rae Jepsen.
A name not to be found anywhere along it? Pint-sized mega-sales monster Justin Bieber and of course rumors swirled that he felt snubbed from the missing mention…but was he really?
“Absolutely not,” a rep for Justin told our sister site Hollyscoop. “There is no truth to that.”
What most likely happened is that readers mistook his manager Scooter Braun’s disappointment for Justin’s own feelings. Scooter didn’t hide his infuriated feelings, throwing shade at Grammy voters, writing:
“I just plain DISAGREE. The kid [Bieber] 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 successful album, sold out tour, and won people over…this time he deserved to be recognized and I don’t really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision I don’t agree with.”
Justin’s remaining silent. He has a huge fan base of loyal fans who won’t be going away any time soon. He’s also only 18 years old, so it seems there’ll be a lot of other Grammy award shows for him the future. Shrug.
