Kanye may be able to make bitches famous, but he can’t get them to win Grammys.
No matter how hard he tries.
In the newest installment of “Yeezus Tries To Fix The System By Complaining,” Kanye has told a packed crowd in Oakland that if Frank Ocean isn’t grammy-nominated for his albums “Blond” and “Endless” then he simply wont show up.
“I’ll tell you this right now, if his album is not nominated in no categories, I’m not showing up to the Grammys,” West proclaimed. “As artists, we’ve got to come together to fight the bullshit.”
Look I love Frankie Ocean as much as the next person…but Kanye, there’s an issue here…
Frank Ocean didn’t submit in time.
Apparently, Ocean’s decision to keep his album out of the running may have been intentional, but in any case, it wasn’t in by the September 30th deadline. And there’s nothing anyone can do about it, Ye as my witness.
But I guess Kanye still thinks its possible, since Lady Gaga once performed for Best New Artist even though she wasn’t nominated. It’s not exactly clear what he means here (which shouldn’t be a huge surprise, the man can only articulate in verse.)
“She wasn’t nominated for best new artist, right?” he said. “But they wanted her to perform at the show, they wanted her to open. So the Grammys secretly changed something about the nominations in order to nominate her in order for her to perform in the show.”
