Frank Ocean Calls Taylor Swift's Grammy Win Over Kendrick Lamar 'Faulty' In New Open Letter

Frank Ocean is calling out Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich and show writer David Wild in a new open letter posted to his Tumblr account.

The 29-year-old singer, who will not be attending tonight’s ceremony, cites Taylor Swift‘s 2016 win over Kendrick Lamar for Album of the Year as “hands down one of the most ‘faulty’ TV moments I’ve seen.”

This was in response to Ken telling Rolling Stone about Frank‘s 2013 performance, “We executed his vision knowing that it was faulty. And we tried to tell him that, we tried to tell his management that, we tried to tell the record label that. So, his feelings about the Grammys right now, I would imagine, probably go back to that in one way. But honestly, it wasn’t us.”

“Yea yea, my 2013 performance at the Grammys was absolute sh-t,” Frank wrote. Technical difficulties, blah blah. Thanks for the reminder. Very much appreciated. F-ck that performance, though. You think that’s why I kept my work out of the Grammys process this year? Don’t you think I would’ve wanted to play the show to ‘redeem’ myself if I felt that way?”

I played him songs, the Starboy theme of course, which he incorporated into his verse. He would just walk around. We had food. He’s writing his verse in his head. He would go into his phone, look at it a few and then put it back and start walking around. He then at one point he went into the studio booth and I closed the door and I could hear him yelling his verse in his head.”

He continued, “He was really committed, you can tell he put his all into. It wasn’t just a random Kendrick Lamar verse, it was something special because again, I don’t like to say this all the time, but we’ve known each other for a while and it’s crazy how we started connecting on this record.”
