This year’s Grammys had MAJOR controversy, but above it all, there’s 3 honest reactions from artists that won something more than a Grammy.
1. Lady Gaga
The Gaga monster was brought to tears for winning Best Pop Duo/Pop Group Performance with Shallow. The hit song starred in the Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga movie A Star Is Born. Once she hit the stage, Lady Gaga dedicated her speech to mental health issues.
“If I don’t get another chance to say this, I just want to say I’m so proud to be part of a movie that addresses mental health issues. They’re so important. A lot of artists deal with that, and we gotta take care of each other, so if you see somebody that’s hurting don’t look away.”
2. Cardi B
This year’s Best Rap Album nominees were ABSOLUTELY stacked. Rappers Cardi B, Travis Scott, Pusha T, Nipsey Hussle and the late Mac Miller were on the Grammy ballot. The majority of people thought Travis Scott’s Astroworld or Mac Miller’s Swimming would’ve won. Then, Cardi B being Cardi B said one of the funniest and touching speeches.
“Maybe I need to start smoking weed…” said a nervous Cardi B. She ended it off dedicating the Grammy to her daughter. “I’m not just saying thank you because she’s my daughter, it’s because you know, when I found out I was pregnant my album was not complete.” Then, lastly, ending how hard it was being pregnant, making new music and being on a tight schedule.
“Chapagne Papi” Drake had a MAJOR surprise for the Recording Academy at the Grammys. Drake snubbed the Recording Academy’s recognition with his acceptance speech.
“You’ve already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word, if you’re a hero in your hometown. Look, if there’s people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain in the snow spending their hard earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows, you don’t need this right here I promise you-you already won,” said Drake.
Needless to say, all three of these music giants brought the water works with their Grammy speeches. I’m not crying you’re crying..
