Justin Bieber Failed to Receive a Grammy Nomination, Manager Lashed Out at Organizers
Someone is upset. Scooter Braun, Justin Bieber's manager, expressed his anger with the Grammy Awards organizers who failed to give even a single nomination this year to the young Canadian pop superstar.
"The kid deserved it. Grammy board u blew it on this one, (sic)" Braun reportedly posted on his Twitter account after the prestigious Recording Academy snubbed a Justin Bieber nomination in any of the 81 awards to be given.
"The kid delivered. Huge successful album, sold out tour, and won people over. This time he deserved to be recognized and I don't really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision I don't agree with. To his fans, looks like we get to stay the underdog a little longer," Braum added.
It appears that Scooter Braum was not the only one shocked that the 18-year-old singer was not nominated this year. British music mogul Simon Cowell sided with the disappointed manager.
"You know what? He deserved one nomination, I think," the "X-Factor" judge told TMZ. "But they can get a bit snobby sometimes," Cowell further stated describing the Grammy Awards board.
During the interview with Z-100 on Friday night, singer Justin Bieber assured his thousands of fans that he is doing just fine. Looking straight into the camera, he said, "Thank you to all my beautiful fans out there. You know, I don't need a Grammy to have your love. You guys are still incredible and I love you," Bieber said as he looked directly to the camera.
Moreover, Justin Bieber posted the video link for details about his interview with Z-100 on his Twitter account @justinbieber. "And I meant what I said at the end. Finally answered about the Grammys. I got you guys. That is all I need. I'm all good," Bieber also posted on Twitter.
The 55th Annual Grammy Awards will be held on February 10, 2013 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
