Drake turns down his 2022 Grammy Nominations and no one knows why

Drake turns down his 2022 Grammy Nominations and no one knows why
Dec 7 2021 Share

Despite there being no clear motivation, Drake’s management team have asked the Recording Academy to remove his 2022 Grammy nomination. The ‘6 God’ was one of the five nominees for Best Rap Album, for Certified Lover Boy and for Best Rap Performance for his song ‘Way 2 Sexy’. 

Drizzy only won four Grammys, despite being the most streamed artist of the decade. His relationship with the Grammys has always been a sketchy and weird connection as the rapper was famously cut off at the 2019 awards during his acceptance speech.

The speech cut off to an advert abruptly, with the Grammys telling Variety that they thought his speech was over. Drake, real name Aubrey Graham, delivered quite a big chunk of his speech in 2019, but said that despite being cut off, he still said what he intended. 

It remains to be seen why Drake gave up his nominations, but his previous criticisms of previous nominations and wins might give some hints as to why.

Molotov cocktail attack on Belgian MEP condemned by Metsola

Molotov cocktail attack on Belgian MEP condemned by Metsola

After a Belgian MEP’s home became the target of a violent Molotov cocktail attack, Nationalist MEP Roberta Metsola condemned the assault on his family. Metsola, a European Parliament President hopeful, tweeted out her solidarity and support to Pascal Arimont and his family. The explosive was thrown under the family’s children’s bedroom. 

‘It is shocking and horrific. We must be united against hate and extremism. I hope the culprits are brought swiftly to justice.’ Arimont expressed suspicions that the attack was the work of anti-vaxxers retaliating to a Facebook post in which he highlighted his trust in science as to the efficacy and safety of the COVID vaccines.

He said that despite handling people criticising his work, what happened went too far. He also expressed how he has always spoken out against a general mandatory vaccination. ‘They call me a coward. But how cowardly is it to want to start an arson in a house where children are sleeping’ he rhetorically asked. 

With Belgium experiencing a large amount of protests against the increasing restrictions, cases have also seen a rise all across the continent. Despite big parts of the protest being peaceful, a group of demonstrators resorted to throwing stones and fireworks at police, instigating a response of teargas and water cannons. Malta’s Health Minister Chris Fearne also condemned the attack and expressed solidarity with Pascal’s family. The Belgian MEP expressed his fear as he protects his loved ones following the attack.

Apologising for any inconveniences, Transport Malta said that it will be closely monitoring the situation and will inform the public when services will be returning to normal.

Rihanna fans might be in for a bit of a shock as the artist has stated that her ninth album will be completely different to her usual style. ‘Whatever you know of Rihanna’s not gonna be what you hear’ the 33-year-old singer teased, with her latest release ‘Anti’ coming out in 2016 and winning Favourite Soul/R&B Album. 

Fans may have waited for a long time before getting anything Rihanna, despite the singer having been a national hero for Barbados. So she wasn’t exactly wasting time. At her latest Savage X Fenty show, Rihanna said that music is like fashion, and that one should be able to play. ‘I should be able to wear whatever I want and I treat music the same way.’

Fans have expressed doubt over the very existence of the album however. Many asked when the album will drop, with others simply asking whether or not we should believe her.
