Ciara, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Kelly Rowland, Chris Brown, Jonae Monae – Were they forgotten?
The 56th Annual Grammy Award nomination list is out and our own Femi Kuti made it …again! But there are some top Hollywood stars who shockingly couldn’t escaped the famous list.
Ciara’s “Body Party” made Top 5 on the R&B Itunes Chart even before the song and video hit radio airwaves. The media praised the track as, sultry, seductive and slow jam banger. It stemmed from her novel album, “Ciara” formerly “One Woman Army” yet was sidelined from the Grammy Award. The singer took to Instagram over the weekend to calm down her millions of fans with a valid explanation for the snug,
2 All My Fans Upset About Body Party Not being nominated:
Body Party Going number 1 this year was a blessing within itself and for that I am thankful! Unfortunately it couldn’t be eligible because of the -My Boo- sample in it. I discovered this before the songs allowed for nomination were set…However this year has been incredible considering the journey a few years prior and it is JUST the beginning So, I’za Happy Happy Happy Girl, and Thankful to have a Grammy already!! Let’s keep all this good stuff going! Love CC!
Not only Ciara had tears to hold back, Wrecking Ball singer Miley Cyrus also got snubbed. It’s no more news that the former Disney child has grown musically and she has other awards to prove to that effect. But, seems the 'nudity' and 'smoking' scenes in her videos didn’t sink well with the Grammy crew.
Like Ciara, Wale’s “Bad” with Tiara Thomas also had nothing, and K. Michelle who also got ditched wrote:
Wow major Grammy snub. I guess a little black girl who truly speaks her mind was a little 2much huh? Gotta work harder next year.
Another shocking snubs are Lady Gaga, Chris Brown and Kelly Rowland. All stars have been incredible with their arts this year. All of them also released new successful tracks which were widely accepted but none could get any of them into the ‘prestigious’ Grammy list of nods.
However, Jay Z led the pack with nine nominations for his new LP Magna Carta Holy Grail. New rules! Followed by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who snagged seven nominations after dominating the radio all year long with hits like “Thrift Shop,” “Same Love” and “Can’t Hold Us.” Tying them with seven nominations was newcomer Kendrick Lamar, super producer Pharrell Williams, and Justin Timberlake who all had seven nods each.
Closely following J.T is Drake with five, and newcomer Lordes' Royals track helped her gain four. Singer Chrisette Michele will go up against Faith Evans, Alicia Keys, John Legend, and TGT [Tank,Genuwine,Tyrese]for Best R&B Album, and after taking a break from acting to focus on his music career, Mack Wilds has snagged his first Grammy ever in the Best Urban Contemporary Album category
Thank God the Grammys didn't snub Kanye West like the Louis Vuitton boss because Yeezus album nabbed him two spots in Best Rap Song and Best Rap Album, while Rihanna got three, as well as Fantasia and Tamar Braxton, who immediately reacted on Twitter;
#lookatgod. Tamartianfriends we are going to the TheGRAMMYs_ ! Thank you so much 4 riding for me!! Whatever happens NEXT.. It is WELL with my SOUL!
