Chris Brown is the latest artist who doesn’t seem happy with this year’s nominations at the Grammys.
He took to Twitter to express his displeasure for the awards show, stating that it used to hold weight, but now it’s about “likes and memes.”
Brown has won Best R&B Album in 2012 for his fourth studio album, F.A.M.E. Throughout his career, he’s been nominated over a dozen times. Last year, he was up for Best Urban Contemporary Album (X) and Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song for “New Flame.”
It’s odd that Brown would be voicing his concerns for the Grammys just two weeks before the Feb. 15 show. Maybe there’s something we don’t know? Read his series of tweets, below.
