The announcement of the 55th Annual Grammy nominees should have been a time for hardworking talent throughout the industry to recognize that the rest of us are appreciative of their work, but apparently that was not the case with Justin Bieber’s manager. Scooter Braun, who is also known for working with other pop acts like Carly Rae Jepsen, took to Twitter following this morning’s announcement to complain (at length) about Justin being snubbed. You can read his complete rant below:
“”first…congrats to @carlyraejepsen . thought u deserved a best new artist nom, but proud Call Me Maybe got u 2 noms. so proud of u. second….this time there wont be any wise words, no excuses, I just plain DISAGREE. The kid deserved it. Grammy board u blew it on this one
the hardest thing to do is transition, keep the train moving. the kid delivered. Huge succesful album, sold out tour, and won people over…
…this time he deserved to be recognized and I dont really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision i dont agree with.
so to all those nominated…you do deserve it. You worked hard and u earned it. Just feel like so did JB.
To his fans…looks like we get to stay the underdog a little longer. #BRINGIT
I got a lot more I can say but for now….Im gonna leave it at that. Congrats to all those who got nominated including our own CRJ
life is long, with many ups and downs, but we get to keep going, everyday brings a new opportunity. NOTHING GREAT EVER CAME EASY.”
Braun clearly feels more passionately about Believe than just about everyone else in the continental United States. Biebs himself has yet to comment on the situation, but I highly doubt we’ll see anything negative from the young singer regarding the snub. If that changes however, we’ll let you now as fast as our fingers can type.
