Rihanna Got Eight Grammy Noms, But Fans Are a Little Upset

Rihanna landed eight Grammy nominations this morning, but her fans are upset that she was not recognized in some of the major categories.

The 28-year-old singer received a Record of the Year nomination for her song “Work,” but she was snubbed for Song of the Year and did not received an Album of the Year nomination for Anti.

Rihanna actually still is an Album of the Year nominee for Drake‘s “Views” as a featured artist.

Some fans think that Rihanna didn’t get more nominations so that the Recording Academy could keep Beyonce in the lead with nine nods. One fan posted a theory on Instagram and Ri actually liked it!

    Well ANTI should have an AOTY nom. It was a great album. Her best to date for sure.

    For the record, Rihanna cleared up the bs that the social media likes to run with. Stop trying to paint her as this awful person. And yes, Anti was better than Lemonade–MY personal opinion.

    the fact that in 8 albums she only received that nomination once for Loud is crazy, clearly the grammy’s have a way of putting the ones they like first like taylor swift, gaga, beyonce …. it was her year like I didn’t even like her last album but obviously it was her year she was everywhere, movies, most anticipated album of the year, most sold shoes, one of the biggest tour, biggest single of the year, most streamed song of the year, most sold dance collab, singing the soundtrack of startreck …. how do you mean to tell me that views and purpose deserved it more ? it just seems extremely weird like if only one black female could be on top and that one is beyonce and beyonce only, it’s like they cancel each other somehow in those award shows
