Nicki Minaj’s Manager Calls Grammy Snub ‘Bullshit’

Nicki Minaj

Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun is not the only one upset that his client didn’t get nominated for a Grammy. Cortez Bryant, who co-manages Nicki Minaj, has called out the Recording Academy for snubbing the Young Money rapper.

“Congrats to @LilTunechi and @Drake and @Hit_Boy on their Grammy Noms butttt they was on some bullshit for not nominating @NICKIMINAJ,” tweeted Bryant, whose company The Blueprint Group also reps Lil Wayne and Drake.

Despite releasing her album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded and chart-topping single “Starships” within the eligibility period (October 1, 2011 – September 30, 2012), the hip-hop diva was not included in any of the categories when nominations for the 55th annual awards were announced on Wednesday.

At last year’s ceremony, Nicki received three nominations including Best New Artist and Best Rap Album and closed out the show with a controversial performance of “Roman Holiday.” However, she did not go home with any awards.

The usually outspoken rapper did not address the snub on Twitter, but her fans were clearly upset. “Nicki Is A Gorgeous; Talented Woman With Major Determination… Umm @Grammys How ?,” tweeted one member of Team Minaj, while others were not as nice. “Let me get this right, Nicki has no Grammy nominations? F**k off.”

Meanwhile, her Young Money labelmate Drake scored three, while boss Lil Wayne picked up two nominations.

    Maybe she will revamp her cloned image now. She damaged her own career. She blatantly and constantly dissed women in her genre, she didn’t realize her music was becoming more and more disliked by her original audience, she never took a break to notice and reinvent a lane of her own, she claimed Queen without being properly crowned (ego)…and the list goes on. Nicki allowed popularity and money to control Onika.

    @Luxury, It’s QUALITY over QUANTITY. But I agree Starships could of been nominated for a grammy because the production on it is amazing! but then again… The persona and attitude nicki portrays to critics is probably the reason she received no nominations.

    The grammy’s should of nominated her for the rap performance for “Roman Holiday” since they’re the ones of wanted her to perform the song at last year’s Grammys.

    2013- Nicki Minaj please. PLEASE. get your shit together and be classy.

    [Reply]

    JustWow Reply:

    @Jay, everything is not about record sales. thats why you young fans are so mislead on what real talent is about. beyonce wasnt nominated alot last year and she had the best selling R&B album which actually SCANNED (NOT SHIPPED) 1 million. the world does not revolve around nicki minaj and maybe this is the period in her career where she can learn to humble herself and be grateful for some of the accomplishments she has made. She wants to win win win but when she loses she always reacts so sorely about it. Thats not the attitude of a winner. Her and her team need to get themselves together. Do u know how many legendary artists have been snubbed by the Grammys? She isnt even a legend yet. that diva attitude is what is costing her career now.

    @Jay, Her crap album was not hip-hop. I don’t care if that’s what she calls it, but she’s obviously gone pop. Her best record was starships, which sounds like a David Guetta track. If she were to be nominated for anything, it should be in the pop category, and since there are way better pop artists, I’m glad she didn’t get any noms. The moral of the story? Don’t sell out.

  12. The Truth

    After looking at the list of nominees I do not think she was snubbed. I think her fans just expected her to be nominated because of her popularity. But one thing fans and others have to realize is that the Grammys dont base nominations or wins solely on billboard charts, how many records you have sold, or your popularity. If you read the Grammy nomination guidelines and voting process on their website it should help you understand some things. Everything isnt about who has had the most chart entries or #1 singles. The Grammy committe consists of well trained industry elites. This isnt an award show base on votes from fans where im sure she may have been nominated. These are trained professionals who are knowledgeable about their perspective genres and they are not encouraged to nominate artists based on their likability. Its about the TALENT AND CONTENT of the music.

    @The Truth, soooooo true. Also when u think about it Nicki hasnt found her balance or target audience. I think she is so busy trying to remain popular amongst mainstream audience that she abandons the audience she continues to run back to when she runs low on steam- the Hip Hop audience. She seems to be confused as to who her target audience is. At the very beginning of her promo audience she was trying to reach that hip hop fan base who said she had left them dry and then when they didnt approve of her single Roman in Moscow she tried to go for the Stupid Hoe approach which was shunned by both the pop audience she caters too and the hip hop audience she tries to seperate herself from. Then after her much rediculed Grammy performance she decides to try to reach out the crossover audience by releasing Starships. I think people were confused about the direction she was trying to go because she was all over the place. She has to figure out WHO HER TARGET AUDIENCE IS and sadly she has does not know if she wants to be a POP ARTIST or noticed as a RAPPER.

    @The Truth, very well said… the Grammys are a different award show. this isnt some fan based poll where the fans get to decide the winners and nominees. if that were the case im sure her dear barbz would have got her the recognition. the choice was not up to them this time… maybe if other award shows would nominate artists based on talent alone then they could be recognized and be held to great prestige. but the other award shows arent like that. How dare her and her team try to pull this publicity stunt to rain on other artists parades just so she can be recognized. she’s going to be on american idol in Jan 2013… she might not even have time to attend the grammys…her and her entire team are self centered spoiled brats.

    I’m convinced Nicki and her team or either delusional or full of themselves. I knew after that Grammy performance last year and after Stupid Hoe hit the web she wasn’t going to get any Grammys. Her music is TRASH now. Also she burned bridges with people in the Grammy committee so she really isn’t going to get any nods anytime soon.

    @NOLA Navy, I so agree. Nicki Minaj and her “MANAGER” are so conceited and full of themselves. What gets me is that so many great female rappers get shunned by the industry and have been these past 2 years while Nicki has been dominating and the minute she isnt receiving accolades they throw tantrums and block their fans. Her album under performed, her perfume not doing so well sales wise in stores, and now she is being snubbed by the Grammys. I dont think Nicki Minaj likes being told NO and so this is the result. All this means is that she needs to go back to the lab. Humble herself. Produce the best quality music she can. Stay grateful and LEARN SOME RESPECT FOR OTHERS. She isnt the only artist in the industry who works hard. So many artists who were nominated this year were over looked by the Grammys in previous years. NOW IS JUST NOT HER TIME. Maybe next year will be. But she sure isnt going to solve the problem by acting snobby about it.

    Why is he even talking? Stay in ur position. The industry are not here for the gimmicks. Last year she deserved her nominations because it was quality music. This year she didn’t. You can’t win them all. Maybe Nicki should get back into the studio and put pressure on herself too make a quality album that has depth. Like pink Friday.
    People don’t like criticism anymore. If your music isn’t good enough to make the list, it isn’t good enough to make the list. Simple. Next topic please.

    I believe there are several reasons why Nicki Minaj didn’t get any Grammy Award nominations at the 2013 Grammy Awards. Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded album got mixed reviews from unbiased music critics and unbiased music fans. Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded album only got 60 percent on Metacritic which indicates mixed or average reviews. Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded album was certified platinum in the U.S., and other countries, but struggled to go certified gold for a long time. Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded album barely sold over 700,000 copies in the U.S. That means there are more mainstream pop music fans buying Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded album then it is mainstream hip hop fans and underground hip hop fans buying her album.

    I understand Nicki Minaj is a mainstream hip hop artist who makes mainstream hip hop music and mainstream pop music. At the 2012 Grammy Awards, Nicki Minaj gave the worst Grammy Awards music performance of all-time, and that is one of the main reasons why Nicki Minaj didn’t get any Grammy Award nominations at the 2013 Grammy Awards. Nicki Minaj received a lot of backlash for the Stupid Hoe music video from unbiased mainstream hip hop fans, unbiased underground hip hop fans, unbiased mainstream pop music fans, and unbiased music critics. Hip Hop radio stations started playing less Nicki Minaj music this year. Nicki Minaj lost all respect in the hip hop community. That’s why Nicki Minaj’s music peers on the Grammy committee gave her the middle finger and voted against her this year.

    Even at the 2012 Grammy Awards, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Lil Wayne, and Young Money/Cash Money Records had gotten 17 Grammy Award nominations, but lost all the Grammy Awards to Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Bon Iver. The Grammy Awards don’t have any respect for Nicki Minaj at all. The Grammy Awards don’t have respect for Drake at all, even though I feel Drake is the only artist in that group that deserves to win a Grammy Award one day. The only way Nicki Minaj will ever win a Grammy Award, is if the hip hop community and Grammy committee chooses to forgive her for burning bridges this year.

    Ugh, Nicki and her team have such stank entitled attitudes it’s just absolutely rediculous and so off-putting. Why couldn’t he just congratulate the other YMCMB artists? Nicki isn’t entitled to anything but everyone she surrounds herself with make her think that she is. This is why she is who she is today because she obviously has a business team, family, and fans who basically tell her that she is god and that she can do no wrong. When you have a strong healthy foundation of people underneath and around you, you tend to do good things and they’ll smack you down quick when you get out of hand and that helps you grow. It’s becoming more and more obvious that Nicki doesn’t have that. She is surrounded by a bunch of yes-men who tell her that everything she is and does is perfect. This is why when she DOES get criticism from someone who refuses to kiss her ass, she can’t take it and goes on the defense so quick. As her manager, instead of calling the academy “bullshit” you need to sit her down, admit what went wrong this time around, and figure out a plan to fix it for next year. Blaming everyone else BUT your artist is not doing them any good.

    You could tell on that 3 part E! series that she did that her team is scared of her and just constantly kisses her ass and in turn she isn’t too nice to them. “Tough love” my ass. Nicki is a bitch and not in a cute way. She’s 30 years old and has almost no sense of reality. I can’t believe her fans thought she’d be around for like 10 years. Did they really think she could keep doing what she’s doing until she’s 40?! Hip hop or pop, she can barely stay afloat on the charts nowadays unless she’s providing a 30 second feature on someone else’s track (Alicia and Justin). The Re-Up JUST came out and is BURIED hundreds of spots down the charts on iTunes. Her highest charting single off of it is in the 700′s. Hopefully next year she gets a reality check and a better lacefront because people are noticing now more than ever that Nicki is just not much of a quality artist and kind of a shitty person.

    I don’t think PFRR was her best work at all, overall is was just a fun album, not very lyrical. If it was about diversity and freedom, PFRR would’ve taken it. I’m glad she put out the re-up, because it is AMAZING and she showed where she is lyrically at now.
    I still think she should’ve been nominated. At least ONE nomination for starships. That record was HUGE.
    But I hope that whatever inspired her for the re-up inspires her again for her third album because if it does, it’ll be an amazing body of work.

    @Kaylaa, You say she’s amazing lyrically in the Re-Up? Then compare her to other lyricists. Kendrick Lamar. Common. Real rappers, who don’t sell out doing pop shit to get more money but make everyone lose respect for them. And you can’t say she just had “one fun album” because it’s her first album! She’s a sell-out, a conformist, and not in the top 50 in either rap or pop. Even starships isn’t a great record compared to similar pop stuff like David Guetta and Calvin Harris. What you and many Nicki fans don’t understand is that the Grammys (THANKFULLY!!) aren’t like the VMAs or BETs. They’re not a popularity contest where the people with the most record/album sales win every time. It’s about quality music. And Nicki simply doesn’t make that.Where does she belong? In the trash, with the rest of her music.

    @Kaylaa, It’s not her singing that makes her “pop”. it’s the type of music she release’s that makes her POP!

    A “diverse artist” is someone who can do multiple types of music and still remain themself.

    Lil Kim, Missy, Eve, Queen Latifah, etc have all been featured on “Pop” songs but NOT ONCE did the people have to question their role in the music industry.

    And maybe if she didn’t make STUPID music then the people could focus on her songs with “substance”. And there’s a difference between being a “hater” and speaking the truth.

    I’m not familiar with Nicki Minaj’s work so my comment is based solely on what I see on tv. Anytime people get into heated arguments about the genre in which the record should be classified in, as an artist you will always have a problem. This formula only works in award shows that are driven by the voting public.

    2 chainz should not have been nominated.

    Nicki did outsell all her peers in rap. No female love I see.

    I do think it makes sense that they couldn’t place it in a proper category but the album was not her best neither is reup. Again Nicki needs to go back to pink fridays formula. She is way more likable and versatile that way. why did she go so far left.

    Grammys are just a much a joke as any other award shows. I don’t take them serious anymore. Beyonce always wins. when she dies shell have about 100. Jay z bytched and moaned before they gave him one and then they never stopped. jay was nominated even when he aint put songs out.

    and you cant win them all. U wont win them all. Its some artist who really put in work and are seriously talented that got overlooked by the grammys for years. Nicki needs to suck it up and make a better more well defined structured album. I know she is capable. Stupid hoes and all those silly songs will not give you grammys. Plus her team was very disorganized with handling her material this time around. They did everything just right with her first album but was just throwing songs and videos and rereleases out all over the place this time.

    I did feel that she kinda got gypped. I mean if 2 Chainz was nominated… I think she deserved a nod as well. HOWEVER, Nicki already has an image of being outspoken and being that black audiences (^^YALL^^) are already hyper critical of everything OUR artists do and say, it doesn’t fare well that her manager is on Twitter calling out the Academy. They need to be trying to re-brand Nicki personally. I feel that she’s misunderstood personally because of all the “extra” she has going on. The show with wigs and costumes can be ostentatious and annoying so people assume that’s how her personality is. THEN she’s outspoken and assertive on top of the outfits and hair so it’s kinda like a double negative. People aren’t listening to her music really because she’s become such a caricature. But listening to “The Re-Up” her musical quality hasn’t changed any from the mixtapes. Even “Reloaded” had good quality to it (in comparison to what other very popular rappers are releasing) I think “Freedom” is the closest we have been to seeing who she is in a balanced light. There are still wigs, color and braggadocio, but it’s still likable in that video. She needs to do more of that… Anywho back to the matter at hand, when it comes to the work ethic and quality of music she’s released I think she AND Bieber kinda got shafted. But it’s hard to put Bieber in a category with fun. and Gotye and have it be a fair fight when it comes to GOOD, quality, music from the heart… I’m rambling again. smh

    I’m a fan of Nicki, but it really doesn’t surprise me that she didn’t get a nomination. While PF:RR had several good songs on it (Champion, Marilyn Monroe, Fire Burns, Gun SHot, Masquerade & Roman Holiday), it wasn’t really grammy worthy. It definitely couldn’t be thrown in the rap category because of all the dance/euro pop songs included on it. Had the album consisted of the songs from the Re-Up and about half of the tracks from Roman Reloaded, she may have stood a chance. She definitely has the ability to put together good tracks, but sometimes it seems like her workload interferes with the quality of the music she puts out. Hopefully she takes this into consideration when she starts recording The Pink Print

Even as a fan I never will understand how she has the courage too do things even Wear things, that will cause black lash.. Most Importantly, Her Last Album wasn’t Hip-Hop orientated what so ever, Roman Reloaded was experiment inside & out.. The Pop portion of the album went hard, but the Hip-Hop side lacked Nicki’s Rap Skills.. The Re-Up was dope.. The Pink Print Will Win A Grammy..

    @Boom, Nicki’s last album had a way better chance of being grammy nominated. It was more hip hop oriented than starships. The only real poppy song was superbass and wasn’t it on the deluxe or something.

    your love,moment for life, save me, blazin with kanye, fly, right thru me, dear old nicki, even did it on em, and romans revenge were way better songs than anything on roman reloaded.

    Thats why its album sales stayed consistent because the album was not bad. plus she took her time to promote and market her singles with performances. Roman reloaded was thrown together. even champion failed in comparison than the other songs like it she had on her first album. In my opinion if it aint broke dont fix it

  82. Charko

    Everybody losing their shit so much on here, lets just lay it out nice and neatly:

    What Grammy or Grammys specifically should Nicki have been nominated for? Points:

    -She weren’t gonna get pop album or hip hop album cause the album was too mixed soundwise.

    -She flat out DIDNT have a song that was on the level of the other nominees for Song of the Year or Record of the Year. Starships was a smash for sure but that clubby euro sound is too lowbrow to get the nod in that categor. Even We Found Love didn’t get a nod and that was probably the most well writ shit in that genre all year.

    -She didnt do any features that were crazy enough to get nommed because she was busy doing her thing, not hating but the last totally dope feature she did was the A$$ remix.

    -So as far as I can see the only categories where she can feel legitimately dissed are Rap Song and Rap Performance. I’m willing to say that I woulda probably nominated Come on a Cone, I Am Your Leader or Beez in the Trap ahead of a couple the songs in those rap categors but those songs made such a minimal splash commercially they would be going out on a limb nominating her there.

    Whether its political or not, the snub is pretty minimal.

    [Reply]

  83. crazy kat

    Its always good to have something to be motivated about in this industry. I hate when people win grammy’s too fast. On the other hand, Nicki needs to earn a grammy and it would mean so much more. Go back in the studio and work on making a grammy qualified album.

    i feel with the tours and endorsements and stuff she got distracted. She hardly promoted her urban records. I saw no performances of the songs she released on the urban side.

    Start back doing club performances and make a more balanced album without all those ratchet stupid ignorant songs.

    Honestly I think pink friday was more grammy appropriate and the better album than the second album. Songs like fly, moment for life, right through me, your love, were reasons nicki got nominated in so many cateogories last year. Plus she had way better features. kanye, drake, and eminem! Next album work with dre, lupe, kanye, jayz, kendrick lamar, or

    She’s 30 years old now, and she needs to stop responding to high school negativity, and believing she has split personalities (i.e Roman). If Minaj would just sit back and listen to the world, not her Barbz, the world, maybe she can understand what’s missing in her career.
    Once she gets some depth and meaning in her music, and stop having albums and song associated with these 3 words: PINK, FRIDAY, ROMAN, she can go somewhere.
    She isn’t talented, neither is half these “musicians” in the industry, but I think the own reason she’s “popular” is becomes she sparks controversy where ever she goes. She needs to just grow up, be a woman, not a little girl, do her own thing, even though it’s not appealing, and start being more humble. At this rate, if she keeps this attitude up, her goal for longevity will be washed up in about 3-5 years. Of course people are going to be mad, her Barbz, and team believe everything she touches is gold, which is sad if she believes the crap they fed her. I think a reality check is the first thing she needs to get if she wants to remain in the game, if so called she’s the only female in the rap female lane. That’s what Lil Kim thought, see where her career is currently located at, thats right the toilet, where we all shit in.

    @Evan, F**k Off. We Love Pink and Roman because Roman is the voice of all gay people. Telling her to stop promoting Roman that what will her gay fans have to relate to? He’s gonna speak for us when the world speaks over us? Unlike you she’s not close minded and ignorant. We love Nicki Minaj all shapes and form and you can’t change that.

    @AllAmerykhanBoy, Fuck outta here with that Roman speak the gay community crap, the fuck it doesn’t. Where in the hell does Roman speak for the gay community? Just because Nicki said he was an angry gay boy trapped in her body? No fucking way. Lada Gaga speaks more for gay people than Nicki and that is not saying much. Don’t you dare lump all of us together.

    @Evan, Her stopping Roman is disrespect to her homosexual fan base. Roman is who we all have inside of us. A voice that needs to be heard when the world speaks over us. We need that influence to give us hope and self purpose. We love Nicki minaj in all shapes and forms and you can’t change that. Atleast she’s not close minded and ignorant.

    @msteefromdc, That’s still not a valid answer. So she speaks up when people disrespect her and you guys call it playing victim and being disrespectful for her but if it was you it’ll be alright? Sit down. Mariah carey had nothing to do with the Grammy’s because last time I checked mariah carey’s career been going on for 20+ years and she’s only won 5

    I’m not going to lie the grammys are losing credability for what artist and albums are selected for nomination. However, I do feel the grammys got this one right for not nominating Nicki for a grammy. This year has been the year were the singles are only credible and count as a great song if the WHOLE album is worth listening to and not just a record being overplayed. but that’s just me, i’m only one opinion

    I can’t wait until this plastic, fake and devoid of all talent puppet just vanishes from the scene, we will no longer have to put up with her pathetic excuse for music and her horrible voice, stupid outfits and unwarranted narcissism.

    The streets will have this nasty hood rat back in no time, and the Grammy snub was a sign of the times, people are getting sick of this no talent ruining Hip Hop and music.

    Nicki does not deserve to be nominated for anything. She jocks other Artist Style, She disrespects Legends who have paved the way in many different genres, I once was okay with Nicki but since her Debut on American Idol, i just cant stand her anymore. Her fake Accent, Ridiculous Outfits, and Petty Little Nick names, and not to mention her Sexual intentions with the contestants… Just recently she Disrespected one of Music’s Biggest Iconic Legend “Mariah Carey” Best Selling Female Artist Of All Time, Active Artist With The Most #1 Hits, Female Artist With The Most Platinum Singles, Artist Of The Decade (90′s & 00′s) Song Of The Decade (90′s One Sweet Day) & (00′s We Belong Together) Artist With Most Weeks At #1 on Billboards Hot 100′s “One Sweet Day” (16weeks) Second Longest Running #1 On Billboards Hot 100′s “We Belong Together” (14weeks) Only Artist To Have A #1 Hit Every Year Of The 90′s. WHEN NICKI CAN PASS MARIAH’S ACHIEVEMENTS, THEN SHE CAN DEMAND SOME RESPECT. [Fun Fact] Mariah Carey’ Single “All I Want For Christmas Is You” (NOTE) just that one Song, has sold way more then all of Nicki’s Singles. For the non believers you all can “Wiki” it cuz i use FACTS for my argument.
