Justin Bieber’s Manager Believes He Was Snubbed At The Grammys
Billboard reports that Justin Bieber’s manager and Schoolboy Records boss Scooter Braun went on a rant on Twitter after it was revealed that Justin Bieber wasn’t nominated for any Grammys at last night’s Grammy Awards nomination special.
His third album, Believe was released in June and had two top ten singles (“Boyfriend” and “As Long As You Love Me”). Bieber performed one of those singles (“As Long As You Love Me”) on The X Factor earlier in the night. He has another, “Beauty and the Beat” (ft. Nicki Minaj) on the way. Bieber also swept the American Music Awards, winning artist of the year, favorite rock/pop male artist and favorite pop/rock album. However, the ABC show that aired last month is a fan-voted event. The Grammy Awards, which airs February 10 on CBS, is decided by committees of industry peers.
While Braun did rant that Bieber wasn’t nominated, he did congratulate the other nominees, including Carly Rae Jepsen, who is on his label.
He wrote: “first…congrats to @carlyraejepsen . thought u deserved a best new artist nom, but proud Call Me Maybe got u 2 noms. so proud of u. second….this time there wont be any wise words, no excuses, I just plain DISAGREE. The kid deserved it. Grammy board u blew it on this one. the hardest thing to do is transition, keep the train moving. the kid delivered. Huge succesful album, sold out tour, and won people over…this time he deserved to be recognized and I dont really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision i dont agree with. so to all those nominated…you do deserve it. You worked hard and u earned it. Just feel like so did JB. To his fans…looks like we get to stay the underdog a little longer. #BRINGIT. I got a lot more I can say but for now….Im gonna leave it at that. Congrats to all those who got nominated including our own CRJ.“
