Nicki Minaj Slams Grammy’s For Not Winning Best New Artist in 2012: They Gave It to the White Man

Nicki Minaj is another artist in a long line of celebrities who have put the Grammy’s on blast for historically snubbing more deserving artists.

She says in 2012, she should have taken home a Grammy, but the academy decided to give it to Bon Iver instead.

“Never forget the Grammys didn’t give me my best new artist award when I had 7 songs simultaneously charting on billboard & bigger first week than any female rapper in the last decade- went on to inspire a generation. They gave it to the white man Bon Iver. #PinkFriday,” she tweeted.

Fans were stunned that several artists — especially Lil Baby, did not receive even a single nod. Lil Baby has been one of 2020’s most prolific artists.

Drake spoke out about this year’s nominations — he says it’s time to move on from the Grammy’s and start something of our own.


“I think we should stop allowing ourselves to be shocked every year by the disconnect between impactful music and these awards,” he wrote. “This is a great time for somebody to start something new that we can build up over time and pass on to the generations to come.”
