The Weeknd doesn’t care about the Grammys

Even though The Weeknd has garnered several Grammy wins over the years, the Blinding Lights artist doesn’t seem to be fond of the award ceremony. The Weeknd previously called out the award show after his album After Hours and hit single Blinding Lights were snubbed from nominations.

Many big celebrities, including Drake and Halsey, jumped into The Weeknd’s defense after the injustice. The Recording Academy’s interim chief executive responded to the artist’s complaints and apologized for upsetting anyone and stressed that they are still evolving to improve their award process. However, the Binding Lights artist doesn’t seem to care about the Award show anymore, as he stated that his previous wins don’t mean anything. He stated,

“I have three Grammys, which means nothing to me now. It’s not like, ‘Oh, I want the Grammy!’ It’s just that this happened, and I’m down to get in front of the fire, as long as it never happens again,”

Although it seems that the singer has moved forward from his Grammy snub and doesn’t seem to care about award ceremonies anymore, the singer did outperform the Grammys’ viewership last Sunday night. Now fans have been blasting the award ceremony after The Weeknd surpassed it.
