India Arie Slams Grammys After Kendrick Lamar Snub
If Kendrick Lamar is upset about being snubbed of Grammy Award wins Sunday Night (Jan. 26), he doesn’t have to speak on it because his music peers are. Singer India Arie, who has also been robbed of gramophones in the past, broke her Twitter hiatus to speak on the Grammys.
“I’ve been on a month long writing retreat social network hiatus, I have to break it today to comment on last nights #GRAMMYs” the songwriter tweeted.
She then posted a lengthy open letter to the Academy on her Tumblr.
“@Kendricklamar WAS robbed, BUT he was not the only one who was robbed,” she wrote. ”Though it’s called “Music industries biggest night” the #Grammys are NOT about the music, it’s a popularity contest.”
