It’s time to buckle TF up because the 2021 Grammy Award nominations are officially out, and everyone and their mother has something to say about their [insert fave] who got snubbed by the Recording Academy for [insert specific category(ies) here]. And to make things even ~juicier~, celeb musicians are chiming in on Twitter to tell their fans/the academy how they feel about being “robbed.” What a time to be alive!
The biggest snub by far has to go to The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye), who despite selling 3.1 million units of his critically acclaimed album, After Hours, spending several successful weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and being so dedicated to his art that he sported literal bloody noses and face bandages during performances and public appearances, didn’t earn a single nomination. Not even in the pop categories, where he should have been a definite shoe-in.
Imagine releasing the most streamed R&B album of all time and receiving ZERO Grammy nominations. The Weeknd got #ROBBED pic.twitter.com/Nij2fDuZYX
This is enough evidence that being nominated for the Grammys doesn’t validate how good an artist, song or album is. At the end of the day we know how talented the weeknd is and how much of a masterpiece After Hours is. pic.twitter.com/VYjmFXQGe9
So The Weeknd has 0 nominations from Grammy’s and they chose Yummy instead?
Aight bet. pic.twitter.com/b5WpiXGDwD

Abel was robbed man this shits weak
Fans of Abel’s suggested that one of his After Hours tracks should have been nominated in the Best Pop Solo Performance category instead of Justin Bieber’s “Yummy.” But hilariously enough, Justin had a problem with the nom, stating that he disagreed with earning nominations in two of the pop categories.
On Instagram, Justin wrote:

Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj took a moment after hearing the nominations to reflect on how she was #robbed for Best New Artist seven years ago, despite experiencing major success at the time. “Never forget the Grammys didn’t give me my best new artist award when I had 7 songs simultaneously charting on billboard & bigger first week than any female rapper in the last decade- went on to inspire a generation. They gave it to the white man Bon Iver. #PinkFriday,” she wrote.

Teyana Taylor also hopped on Twitter to rightfully point out that only men were nominated in the Best R&B Album category, when TBH, her recent album (titled The Album) had massive bops.
Y’all was better off just saying best MALE R&B ALBUM cause all I see is dick in this category. https://t.co/LlL769FbTR
After fans stated they believed that both Hayley Williams (of Paramore) and Rina Sawayama got robbed of a Grammy nom, both women shared that they weren’t phased by the snub—they’re just happy they they get to make music and see their peers excel.
