The Grammy award nominations are out for 2018 and they are terrible like they usually are every year. Taylor Swift snubbed again in major award categories when she just put out a new album titled, Reputation. I am noticing more and more that music award shows are trying their best to shut out Taylor Swift. The Grammy’s didn’t shut out Taylor Swift completely; however, they did give her a nomination for something. They gave her a nomination for “Best Country Song” category, but it’s a song she didn’t perform herself. She wrote a song for Little Big Town called, “Better Man” and Taylor will probably end up winning that award too.
Check out the nominations here…
Why are the Grammy’s trying to ignore Taylor Swift? Why are they snubbing her from major awards like “Record of the Year” and “Album of the Year”? I think the obvious answer to that is politics. Are award shows upset that Taylor continues to stay apolitical in her career? Ya know, Taylor keeping quiet about her political views. Are they upset that she refuses to be a loudmouth about liberal politics and she won’t bash Donald Trump? Those are probably the reasons.
Another reason is that race could be a big part of it too. Have you noticed each year in the Grammy’s there have been more black artists getting nominated than white artists? This year there are mostly black artists nominated. Pretty much all artists nominated for “Record of the Year” and “Album of the Year” are black artists except for Lorde.
Yeah, no doubt the Grammy’s are doing all they can to keep Al Sharpton and all the race baiters out there happy. All of this have got to do something with race, absolutely. The Grammy’s are looking to be more like the BET awards nowadays.
Look… don’t get me wrong… I have nothing against black artists because I happen to like some rap/hip hop and R&B myself. It’s just that it’s unfair for these award shows to ram these rap and pop artists down our throats when there are many other talented artists that deserve these opportunities. I think it’s because some don’t want Taylor Swift hogging the award show spotlight and that’s what they’re afraid of.
I love Taylor Swift. I just think the music industry just stopped caring for her. Now they’re trying to ram Beyonce, Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar down our throats… artists that I don’t care for at all. Award shows are getting worse every year. Fed up with them all. I stopped watching all award shows and you should too.
Speaking of Taylor Swift, I haven’t bought her new album Reputation but I’m gonna get it pretty soon. I love her previous album 1989. Yeah, I’m mostly into rock n’ roll and metal music but sometimes I have to listen to a little bit of everything else that’s out there.
