Hause of Blu — Proving that the grammy’s no longer hold stature to some artists. 😧
Keenan — Oh yeah more people seemingly are speaking out against awards and or shows in general, but it tends to be people who no longer want to kiss the industry’s ass and or new acts who never think they will win so what better way than to get ahead of it and claim you don’t want it 🤔
AbbyKauz — Am from the future I didn’t saw GRAMMY in there it gone end in December 22 believe my words 😶
Carolyn Carpenter— Because @Drake knows the Grammy awards suck so why would you even bother to have name entered they give grammys to same people all the time even if what they released didn’t do as well as those being bought and streamed time for the grammys to go just stick to fan voted awards
