Kanye West, Drake & Justin Bieber Plan to Skip Grammys 2017

News just broke that Kanye West, Drake, and Justin Bieber are all planning to skip the 2017 Grammys this year.

It all started with Frank Ocean, who didn’t even submit his album for consideration this year (though there are reports that it was not even eligible). Frank reportedly believes that the Grammys do not represent “young, black artists,” TMZ reports. Drake and Justin apparently have similar thoughts, and plans to skip the Grammys because he doesn’t believe the show is “relevant or representative.”

A source says of Kanye, who has 8 nominations, “Let’s put it this way. He’s received 21 Grammys, but when he was head-to-head against a white singer, he never won.”

TMZ points out that there’s no anger about the lack of representation, but many just believe the show is out of touch.

See the full list of Grammys nominees if you missed it. The show is set to air on Sunday (February 12).

    The white / black thing sucked the life out of these award shows for me. Sorry I slowly stopped watching them. I agree Bieber and Drake need to stay home ( in Canada) and take untalented Kanbaby with them.

    Am I mistaken or didnt black artists like the Weeknd, D’Angelo, Kendrick Lamar, Alabama Shakes, Christian McBride, Cécile McLorin Salvant, Mavis Staples, Morgan Heritage, cast of Hamilton and others all win Grammy’s last year? Frank Ocean needs to stop being extra and believe in his music (because its really good) but because his record sales were low he has to make a weak statement like this. I guarantee Drake will show and slay the Grammys but we all know Bieber & Kanye are all about who can be the biggest drama queen so this coming from them.was expected.

    ….no big loss. A girl, a man-whore and a crazy person. Show should be better with out all of them!

  • Amber

    Yes, because Justin Bieber is absolutely a young black artist.
