It seems that the Grammy Awards are not having a good year, not only did they have to delay the delivery due to the pandemic, but they have also been the target of criticism from both fans and artists. First, it was The Weeknd who at the end of last year launched against the ceremony because he was not nominated. Now Zayn Malik joined him and launched his own attack.
Khai Malik’s proud dad used his Twitter account to express his disagreement with the nominations. “Fuck the Grammys and all the associates,” he wrote. “Unless you shake hands and send gifts, there is no consideration for a nomination. Next year I will send you a basket of cakes. ”
Fuck the grammys and everyone associated. Unless you shake hands and send gifts, there’s no nomination considerations. Next year I’ll send you a basket of confectionary.

The message of the former One Direction was similar to what the Canadian singer had mentioned a few months ago, when his album After Hours, which swept the music charts in 2020, was completely ignored. On that occasion Abel limited himself to calling them ” corrupt “, gaining the support of Drake.
Other artists against the Grammys
This is not the first time that various artists have come out against the Academy of Music. Last year Diddy showed his anger at the awards for their long history of ignoring rap and R&B artists in the main categories, giving a loudspeaker during the pre-Grammy gala.
On the other hand, in 2019 several artists of the urban genre joined to attack the Latin Recording Academy for the lack of reggaeton in the nominations of its 20th edition. Daddy Yankee and Anuel AA were the ones who led a protest in networks called “ Without reggaeton, there is no Latin Grammy ”.
