Chris Brown Calls Out The Grammys on Twitter: 'The Awards Used to Mean Something'
"Too many people kiss ass and work less," Brown tweeted.
Chris Brown is not happy with the nominations for this year’s Grammy Awards.
The 26-year-old singer took to Twitter on Friday, airing his frustrations in a round of tweets about the award show.
“#GRAMMY? This is probably the main reason I love being free to create any kind of music I want,” he wrote the first tweet. “Too many people kiss ass and work less.”
Following his initial thoughts with three more messages, Brown tweeted, “If u turn on ya radio right now I promise within the hour you will hear CHRIS BROWN on damn near half the songs or I’ve co-written. The awards used to mean something. Now it’s about likes, and memes.”
“I’m thankful to my fans, I am able to be the best artist I can without having to conform to the ways of my peers. I also need my commission.”
Grammy nominations were announced in early December and although Brown was nominated for his collaboration with Lil’ Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Drake for the song “Only,” he did not receive a nod for anything on his latest album Royality.
Brown took home the Grammy for best R&B album in 2012, and has been nominated 15 times.
