Nicki Minaj simply referred to as up the Grammys eight years after her greatest new artist, Snub
Nicki Minaj is ready to stay calm.
Shortly after the 2021 Grammy Award nominations were announced on Tuesday, November 24, the rapper decided to take to Twitter and ponder her journey with the annual awards show. The 37-year-old in particular looked back on a certain year in which she felt abused by voters.
“Never forget the Grammys didn’t give me my Best New Artist award when I chartered 7 songs at once on Billboard in the first week and was taller than any other rapper in the last decade – it inspired a generation,” she wrote to her 21 million followers. “You gave it to the white man Bon Iver. #Pink Friday. “
During the 2012 Grammys, Bon Iver beat Nicki and other nominees, including Skrillex, J. Cole and The band Perry for the coveted award. And although she was nominated nine more times, Nicki still has to pick up a trophy.
