Nicki Minaj has called out Grammy Recording Academy shortly after the announcement of the 2021 Grammy Award nominations. The rapper decided to take to Twitter and reflect on her journey with the annual award show. In particular, the 37-year-old looked back on a specific year when she felt snubbed by voters.

“Never forget the Grammys didn’t give me my best new artist award when I had 7 songs simultaneously charting on Billboard & bigger first week than any female rapper in the last decade went on to inspire a generation. They gave it to the white man Bon Iver. #PinkFriday.” She wrote to her 21 million followers.

During the 2012 Grammys, Bon Iver beat out Nicki and other nominees including Skrillex, J. Cole, and The Band Perry for the highly coveted award. Even after receiving nine nominations, Nicki is yet to walk away with a Grammy.


Justin Bieber also spoke his mind on his Instagram page. While he wasn’t nearly as critical of the Recording Academy as Nicki has been, the singer questioned his recent nominations.

“To the Grammys, I am flattered to be acknowledged and appreciated for my artistry. I am very meticulous and intentional about my music. With that being said, I set out to make an R&B album. Changes was and is an R&B album. It is not being acknowledged as an R&B album which is very strange to me.” He wrote.
