Chris Brown Blames ‘Politics & Asskissing’ on Grammy Loss
Chris Brown isn’t happy about losing in all three of his nominated categories at last night’s Grammy Awards. Before the official televised ceremony began, the Grammy association named the victors for Breezy’s categories, prompting the R&B star to fume on his Twitter account about how industry politics played against him.
“To all the fans!! I love y’all. Don’t be upset!! This industry is based on politics and asskissing! My only concern is team breezy! F— everybody else!” he tweeted. “Im just happy to be able to make music!! #teambreezyrocks !!!”
Brown was honored with a nod in Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, where Jay-Z and Alicia Keys‘ ‘Empire State of Mind’ bested his and Tyga‘s chart-topping ‘Deuces.’ Breezy’s other collaboration, ‘Take My Time’ with Tank, lost to Sade‘s ‘Soldier of Love’ in Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocals, and his third solo LP ‘Graffiti’ failed to secure enough votes to beat Usher‘s ‘Raymond v. Raymond’ for Best Contemporary R&B Album.
Despite his losses, the ‘No BS’ singer is hot on the comeback trail, having brought down the house during his performance on this weekend’s ‘Saturday Night Live.’ Brown is currently prepping the release of his upcoming fourth studio album ‘F.A.M.E.,’ led by the singles ‘Yeah 3X’ and ‘Look at Me Now.’
