    Actually her album is just okay. But keep on attacking and soon people are going to tune out this #MeToo/TimesUp movement.

    i’ve already tuned out. i’m a woman and i feel terrible for women who were raped and/or abused. but these decades old accusations are ridiculous and this constant whining and complaining from women is ridiculous.

    Grammys has turn into a let down. It was very noticable the fewer # of female nominees and esp in the big categories like album of the the year where no females were nominated. HOw’s that possible? Its weird how all the sexual allegations are in the movie industry but I’m sure its just as rampant in the music industry but ppl are staying mum about it … hmm . If I were an artist I wouldnt even want a grammys what’s it even for? This step up statement by the Grammy’s guy should make every female artist angry. Theres so many amazing female artist that remain relatively unknown for who knows what reason

    I hope that every time some female artist will win Grammy, all male ones and their fans will attack her. Maybe then they see how childish their behavior is.

    LOL, ok that was a funny tweet.

    she just needs to step on over to a weight watchers

    Please even the public did not think women did that a great job.There were that many songs/albums by females in the top 10. There wasn’t whining last year because Beyonce and Adele rule music. So step up women other than Beyonce and Adele (most likely Taylor too) and stop whining.

    Grammys award are not given based on popularity or billboard numbers. It’s supposed to be an award that looks past how commerically successful an artist is. But instead looks at the music itself, the production.. idk how they can say what makes a meaningful album and whats not. So it doesn’t matter if there werent many females in the top 10. IF you look back at grammys 2017 the year where Adele won for best album , the nominees were Adele, Beyonce, Justin BIeber, Drake ,and Sturgill Simpson. There was a mix you could say ,thats why there was no whining. If it were all females nominated that’d be weird as well. Keshas album off the top of my head should have been nominated. She has had some rough years w the lawsuit and to come back and make an album that is actually a reflection of who she is and whats shes gone though– that uplifts women. shit give her something. But no we have JAy z getting nominated smdh
