Music has been a topic of debate since the first hunched human repeatedly struck a hollow log with a rock. His mate complained she liked synchronized grunting better. Now, modern music is only slightly more civilized. The industry has evolved into mostly leftist crapsicles who agree burning Trump voodoo dolls on the Grammys stage would be totally #woke (see WATCH: Bill Eichner Brags About Snubbing Sean Spicer at Emmys and OF COURSE: Beyoncé Loses Grammy Awards. Whiny Liberals Cry ‘RACISM!’).
Speaking of which, along with this year’s Grammy nominations comes plenty of racism. Not the imaginary kind bitter losers create to explain their suckery. Real racism.
Well, roll over, white guys, and tell Beethoven the news.
Jay-Z’s “4:44,” Kendrick Lamar’s “Damn,” Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic,” Lorde’s “Melodrama” and Childish Gambino’s “Awaken, My Love!” will compete for the music industry’s most prestigious prize on Jan. 28 in New York.
For record of the year, singles by Jay-Z, Lamar, Mars and Gambino are up against “Despacito,” the chart-topping hit by Puerto Rico’s Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee. Nominees for song of the year include tunes by Logic and Julia Michaels.
And best new artist? That coveted trophy will go to either a woman (Michaels, Sza or Alessia Cara) or an African American man (Khalid or Lil Uzi Vert).
You can look at these nods as a determined effort to repair the Grammys’ reputation, which in recent years has been badly damaged by case after case of important black artists being overlooked in favor of less-significant white acts.
Or Beyoncé losing album of the year — again — to Adele, who in her acceptance speech at this year’s ceremony basically tried to correct the academy, saying she couldn’t take the award from the singer responsible for “Lemonade.”
Oh boy. In case you haven’t already guessed, this article was written by a self-loathing porcelain male.
Goodie, no white males were nominated. Let’s take a dump on everyone from Adele to Beethoven’s grave because of course. Look, the Grammy’s should be based off of talent. Not skin color. But perhaps neither skin color nor talent are being taken into account here. Instead, the Grammy’s have long been based off ass kissery and who knows who. Like every other pompous awards ceremony in the entertainment industry. Now they’re just shifting that unfairness into ticking off diversity boxes. Hence leftist celebration.
This is why we can’t have nice things.
