Grammys: Kanye, Drake, Bieber plan to skip the award show
Reportedly find the awards “irrelevant.”
The 2017 Grammy Awards line-up is shaping up to be a promising one with both Anderson .Paak and A Tribe Called Quest, and Daft Punk and The Weeknd, briefly forming supergroups for the stage, and plans for Bruno Mars, Adele, and more to perform, as well.
But there are a handful of artists that reportedly won’t be making an appearance. According to TMZ, Kanye West, Drake, and Justin Bieber are joining the likes of Frank Ocean–who earlier this year announced he was withholding his albums from being considered for nominations–and planning to skip the show. Sources say they believe the awards are not “representative” and are “out of touch and arguably irrelevant.”
We’ve argued the same.
Both Drake and Kanye have received eight nods, while Bieber has nabbed four.
