Twitter Would Like to Have a Word With the Grammys About SZA's Snub
A travesty occurred on Monday at the Grammys. No, it wasn't Joy Villa's dress (or should I say, it wasn't only her dress) — it was the Recording Academy's across-the-board snub of SZA. The R&B star had one of the best albums of 2017, a legion of die-hard fans, and a sense of style as gorgeous as her voice . . . oh, and she also nabbed five Grammy nominations, making her the most-nominated woman at the 60th annual award show. But did she win any of those five? No, which has many fans up in arms.
The most infuriating of the snubs was in the best new artist category, which went to Alessia Cara. Although Cara is an incredibly talented vocalist, her first album came out in 2015. Shouldn't the best new artist trophy honour a musician who's actually . . . new? Twitter definitely thought so, and didn't hold back in ripping the Grammys several new ones.
