Is Nicki Minaj planning to protest against the Grammys over snub? Nicki Minaj can be very vocal when it comes to people dissing her, a part of her personality that lands her in hot water from time to time. And even though she has lots of fans, some fellow artists in the industry are not too sold on the image that the rapper portrays. Despite her critics’ views of her, Nicki has continued to keep at it with her music, releasing Pink Friday: Roman’s Reloaded The Re-Up, a re-release of her debut album with a few additional tracks on it. With all the success that the first one brought, this particular album hasn’t been pulling in large numbers, yet Nicki still continues to find other ways to bring in the dough, dabbling in cosmetics. As bringing in money is always something that puts a smile on artists’ faces, the biggest prize that they all have their hearts set on is taking home a Grammy.
Receiving awards for her work before, Nicki Minaj is most used to if not winning, being nominated for an award. But much to her supporters’ surprise, Nicki is not listed for any Grammy nominations at all this year, a piece of news that sent her die hard fans into an uproar. The outrage didn’t stop with her fans as Nicki’s manager Cortez Bryant had something to say about it too. As her fans were not happy about Nicki getting snubbed, word has it that Nicki herself is planning to boycott The Grammys over it:
Nicki Minaj is said to be furious over not getting any Grammy nominations this year. At this same time last year, Nicki was the Grammy golden girl, making a huge grand entrance with a priest in a red Versace robe, performing “Roman Holiday” and being nominated for three awards, including Best New Artist. But things are completely different this year, with Nicki not scoring any nominations for her album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. According to an industry insider, the Barb is said to be so upset over the snub, that she is considering “boycotting the show altogether in protest.”
Nicki Minaj hasn’t officially made any statements pertaining to the Grammy snub. But she has blocked a few of her fans on Twitter for voicing their opinions about the situation to her:
Guys, Nicki blocked me because I tweeted that I thought it was ‘somewhat understandable’ that she didn’t get any noms.
