J. Holiday Blasts Beyoncé, SZA, & Cardi B Over Grammy Nominations
J. Holiday is bashing women for singing about their pain. The “Bed” singer, who lost his only Grammy nomination to Mary J. Blige’s Growing Pains in 2009, targets Beyoncé, SZA, and Cardi B in a new video that claims the music industry does not reward talent.
“So apparently the black men still losing to the women,” he says in the clip. “I get it.”
He then starts calling artists out by name. “Beyoncé, Cardi B, SZA, all y’all motherfuckers, stop using that fucking pain to make it OK to say some bullshit on your record, and get nominated for a Grammy for going through some bullshit, because so have I, as a black motherfucking [man].”
The R&B crooner insisted that this was meant with “no disrespect.” “I have absolute all respect for black women, but with that being said, understand this, man, black men, African-American men, men from the hood, we go through everything to make sure that who we care about are taken care of,” he added, before going on a tangent about male R&B singers.
“We don’t swing our dicks around,” he added. “We don’t do all this bullshit to be seen. I could be that ni**a over here, fuckin’ ni**as up. I know a whole bunch of little bitch-ass ni**as that sing, that I can call they ass the fuck out, but I don’t.”
His caption revealed that he is “salty” that he lost to Blige, who earned two Academy Award nominations earlier today, back in 2009. However, he also contradicted this and said that he is “over it” and added a series of other insults towards women in hashtags.
“#asablackmutherfuckingman,” he wrote. “Yes salty I lost to MJB I’m over it! #painwins not talent! #dontsupportjunkiemusic #theweekendchick #watermelonswallowing #forgeignpussy what are U doing to help? Bc my daughters love ya’ll but are not allowed to listen. That’s a problem.”
SZA’s Ctrl earned her five Grammy nominations this year, the most among women. Cardi B received two nominations and Beyoncé obtained one. JAY-Z and Kendrick Lamar were the year’s leading nominees with eight and seven, respectively.
