Kanye West, who’s up for best rap album, vowed to boycott the Grammys if Frank Ocean wasn’t nominated. We’ll have to wait and see if he keeps his word.
Among the other major stars, Justin Bieber is allegedly skipping the show because he “doesn’t think the Grammys are relevant or representative, especially when it comes to young singers” (according to TMZ, anyway).
And Drake isn’t going to make it to LA, because he’s playing a show in Manchester… But that might not be such a bad decision. The show’s ratings dropped to a seven-year low in 2016, meaning the star will make more money from a single concert than he would from three minutes’ TV exposure.
