It was a bit awkward, little doubt — as a result of he principally articulated a gripe Beyoncé followers have lengthy aired out about her constantly being snubbed on the Grammys … together with as lately as final yr, when Harry Styles took ATOY over ‘Renaissance.’
Her loyal base has been outraged earlier than, however now … it is apparent that it bothers Jay — and, presumably, Bey herself as effectively. Jigga wasn’t carried out airing his grievances simply but although.
Jay went on to say that some individuals there within the constructing will go residence feelin robbed — and in some circumstances, he stated they could be proper … however in others, not a lot. In truth, Jay stated among the artists that had been nominated did not even need to be within the class.
