The Weeknd calls Grammys ‘corrupt’ after being snubbed in all categories

 - Music - Nov 25 SHARE ON:

Albeit being potentially one of the most influential artists of this generation, The Weeknd has been snubbed from all Grammy nominations this year and took to Twitter to call the organisation ‘corrupt.’ 

The artist had engaged in heated debate with the Grammys over the idea of performing at both the awards and the Super Bowl, an iconic performance usually given by high-profile artists and bands.

His single ‘Blinding Lights’ is the longest-running top 10 single in Billboard Hot 100 history with his last album ‘After Hours’ receiving acclaim across the board, which begs the question, why was The Weeknd snubbed?

 - International - Nov 25 SHARE ON:

Today marks the beginning of a 16-day activism campaign which creates awareness and addresses the trauma stemming from violence against women.

The United Nations revealed the theme to be ‘Orange the World: Fund, Respond, Prevent, Collect’ and addresses the increase in violence against women, an issue which has increased significantly since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic due to restrictive measures keeping people at home. 

A report published by The Group of Experts on Action Against Violence against Women and Domestic Violence (GREVIO) also reveals that while Malta chose to opt for “gender-based violence” rather than “violence against women” which GREVIO points out that, while inclusive, must focus primarily on violence against women.
