The biggest names in music are set to be MIA for this years Grammy ceremony.
According to TMZ, Drake, Justin Bieber, Frank Ocean, and Kanye West are just some of the artists who have confirmed that they will not be in attendance.
This comes as a bit of a surprise, considering the Grammys is one of the biggest award shows in music, it’s considered to be the Oscar’s of the music industry.
Singer Frank Ocean said that he will not attend because he feels the award show is antiquated and doesn’t fairly represent young black artists. Bieber plans to be elsewhere during the award show and shared similar sentiments Ocean did about the Grammy’s not fairly representing young artists. Bieber is up for 8 nominations this year.
Drake is also up for 8 nominations and will not be there for the same reason as Frank and Justin.
Kanye West is no real surprise, considering his antics over the past few years. He’s also lost to other artists in the past couple of years.
