The Weeknd says the Grammys just can't be trusted despite some recent changes to their rules.
233.6K Recording Academy chair and interim president/CEO Harvey Mason Jr. later responded to The Weeknds comments and said he was surprised he wasnt recognized, as he blamed the lack of nominations on there being fewer to hand out than the number of deserving artists. The Weeknds decision to boycott the Grammys came after Zayn Malik also accused them of being rigged. He tweeted: F### the grammys and everyone associated. Unless you shake hands and send gifts, theres no nomination considerations. Next year Ill send you a basket of confectionary. The former One Direction star later insisted his criticism wasnt about his own album. He added: My tweet was not personal or about eligibility but was about the need for inclusion and the lack of transparency of the nomination process and the space that creates and allows favouritism, racism, and networking politics to influence the voting process.
