Last night at the 2012 Grammy Nominations at Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles many artists old and new celebrated the organization recognizing their work. Kanye West had the biggest night with 7 nominations, Adele and newcomer Bruno Mars snagged 6 each while Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and Beyonce all snagged nominations. Jill Scott who landed her first number one album with ‘Light of the Sun’ was noticeably missing. Scott’s fans weren’t the only ones who noticed the ‘snub’, Jill Scott herself had a few choice words for the Grammy organizers via Twitter:
“0 nominations. I’m speechless. Cover of Billboard, #1 cd in the country, tied/broke the record for Urban radio. Ok…so…ok. Wow…..
I don’t need a Grammy. I deserve it & I’m clear on that. The Light of the Sun was/is magical . We were lifted & filled w/ truth. I â¤ it.
No Miguel?!?!? Huh!!!? Again appalled.
excuse me?!?!? No “Love on Top”? This can’t be right…”
After her surprising rant, Jill received encouragement from her true fans to keep moving forward. Soon after Jill focused on giving thanks for the things that are truly important:
“My head is up. My son is healthy, my family is loving & so are my fans. God is real. Disappointments too still I come thru like a Kung foo.
Thank you all for ur kind words of encouragement. It’s fine. I had a moment of wtf…”
Are you surprised Jill blasted the 2012 Grammy nominations and was it well deserved?
