SZA Says She's Not Mad At All About Not Winning Best New Artist at the Grammys in 2018

SZA Says She's Not Mad At All About Not Winning Best New Artist at the Grammys in 2018

SZA is opening up about being snubbed by the Recording Academy during the 2018 Grammy Awards, where she was up for Best New Artist.

The 30-year-old rapper chatted with Cosmopolitan in their February 2020 issue about how she feels about it.

“I’m just a girl from the ’burbs. I never had dreams of being nominated for a Grammy,” she shared. “I thought I was going to be a gymnast and a f***ing business accountant somewhere. Or working at Nike corporate or some s*** in Portland. Who knows, but something that involved a power suit.”

SZA says she’s not actually mad about losing the award, which ultimately went to Dua Lipa.

“…It’s not a heavy burden,” she says. “Once you’ve been nominated and lost, you’re very much free because you’re not concerned. I passed that threshold years ago—it’s an old energy to me. Why would I be mad?”

If you missed it, some major news about the upcoming 2021 Grammy Awards was just announced today.

Just recently, SZA reacted to fans finding out that she used to date fellow rapper Drake. See what happened here…
