Fiona Apple Reveals Why She Won't Go To The Grammys

Fiona Apple might have won at the 2021 Grammys during the pre-ceremony already, but fans won’t see her attend the award show this year, or ever.

The 43-year-old shared a video of her reasons why she won’t attend.

“It’s not because I’m trying to protest, even though I have problems with the Grammys, it’s not because of that,” she shared in the video. “It’s really because I don’t want to be on national television — I’m just not made for that kind of stuff anymore. I want to stay sober and I can’t do that sober — it doesn’t feel safe to me to be under exposure, scrutiny, comparison to people. I can’t. I don’t wanna do it. So I’m not gonna do it.”

Fiona also explained that there is favoritism in the selection of the winners, which is something that’s been pointed out many times since the 2021 nominations were announced.

“There’s been lots of questions about the transparency of the Grammys,” she shared, saying that the “people who you wanna win, win.”

“I feel like that’s important, but it’s not important,” Fiona added. “What really really is undeniably important is the transparency in actual court rooms.”

Fiona is hoping to keep court rooms virtually open to the public for a fair trial for all accused: “They’re trying to shut us out, and you gotta question it, like why are you trying to shut us out? What don’t you want us to see?”

During the premiere ceremony, Fiona won the Grammy for Best Rock Performance for “Shameika”.

Fiona Apple Calls Out Grammys for Nominating Dr. Luke After Kesha's Allegations

Fiona Apple is calling out the Grammys.

The Fetch the Bolt Cutters singer-songwriter spoke out against the Recording Academy in an interview with The Guardian regarding its treatment of ousted president Deborah Dugan and nomination of Dr. Luke at the 2021 Grammys.

“I’m waiting to hear more about what Deborah Dugan has to say because that all reeks to me. When you hire somebody and they raise questions and then they get fired? There’s a lot of things that she brought up that make it so that I can’t vet that situation and I don’t really wanna go there and support it,” she said of Deborah Dugan, who alleged sexual harassment and a “boy’s club” culture in her legal complaint of the Grammys’ nomination process before being ousted.

Fiona also called out the organization for nominating Dr. Luke, or Lukas Gottwald, who is nominated for his work with Doja Cat (“Say So”) under the new pseudonym Tyson Trax as well.

Although he has defeated several Kesha-related lawsuits against him regarding allegations of abuse, he has ongoing defamation and breach of contract cases against Kesha, and her allegations led him to work under different names.

“They had [Kesha] up there singing ‘Praying’ and now they’re gonna go: ‘Oh, but it’s Tyson Trax!’” Fiona said of the organization.

“I keep going back to them putting Kesha on stage like, ‘We believe you’ — and I believe her — then two years later, f–king Tyson Trax…not to go back to that word, but it’s bulls–t,” she continued.

“I don’t know if anybody who’s nominated can help having the thought: What would I do If I won? My vision was that I would just get up there with a sledgehammer and I wouldn’t say anything, I would take the Grammy and smash it into enough pieces to share and I would invite all the ladies up. My second thought was I wonder if I can get all these ladies to boycott this s–t because of Dr. Luke.”

“I can’t tell you what a comfort Fiona Apple has been during this time,” she revealed during the interview, explaining that she’s listened to it all the time.

Apple’s latest, Fetch the Bolt Cutters, has been Gaga’s constant soundtrack — when she’s cooking, when she’s alone — and it has provided her with another kind of artistic compass. She’s been moved by the way it feels like there’s no distance between Apple’s music and her life,” Billboard explains.

“I just reveled in the way that girl is so herself. Anybody that’s going to tell me somebody is more relevant than Fiona Apple right now because they’ve got more followers on Instagram — I don’t have their number. That right there? That’s culture,” Gaga went on to say.

She also recently opened up about which song on Chromatica was inspired by the trans community.
