JAY-Z’s Snub at the Grammys Has Fans Upset: ‘JAY-Z Was Robbed’
Fans were not feeling the Grammys decision to award Mars with the AOTY honor over JAY-Z's stellar 4:44 and went on Twitter to express their disappointment. Not only that, the Roc Nation mogul was nominated for eight awards in total and didn’t win a single trophy. WTF?
"Jay-Z really wrote a whole album about cheating on Beyoncé just to get nominated for Grammys and not win one. It’s what he deserves for cheating. Bey wins yet again," tweeted one fan.
Another commenter wrote, "Jay-Z was robbed. Kendrick was robbed. And Childish was robbed. No way 24K Magic was better than all of those albums."
There is a silver lining in all of this. Although JAY-Z went home empty-handed, he's still tied with Kanye West and Vince Gill for the 11th most Grammy wins of all time with 21 awards.
Plus, Hov received the GRAMMY Salute to Industry Icons Award at Clive Davis's Pre-Grammy party on Saturday night (Jan. 27).
Nevertheless, fans are very angry at the Recording Academy for snubbing JAY-Z.
