Spike Lee Calls Grammys After Beyonce Loses Album Of The Year: “It’s Straight-Up Shenanigans”

Spike Lee is weighing in on Beyoncé, who lost out at the Grammys for album of the night, album of the year.

“I’m not the male president of the Bay Hive, but I love and support Beyoncé. His album is amazing. I know he’s won multiple Grammys, but been nominated for album of the year four times and lost every time? No disrespect to artists who have won, like Adele or Harry Styles. It’s not their fault, but it’s some straight-up bulls**t,” Lee said guardian In an interview

Despite Beyoncé being the most awarded artist in Grammy history, she has never won Album of the Year. She lost the trophy to Adele in 2017 LemonadeHis self-titled album was beaten by Beck in 2015 and in 2010 I’m… Sasha Fierce Taylor Swift was bested by it fearless.

“There’s a history of great black artists who come up for these awards and don’t win,” Lee added. “We all know their work is great because the art speaks for itself. But then it always comes down to this tricky area of ​​legality. Do black artists say: ‘F**k it’ – or want to chase white validation and rewards? I just want to give a shout out to my sister Beyonce. We know what the deal is. It’s straight-up shenanigans, scholasticism, subterfuge. Or as the Brits say: it’s some poppycock!”

Beyoncé lost out to Harry Styles this year, but she made history with her 32nd win at the Grammys. The “Break My Soul” hitmaker took home the award in the Best R&B Song category for “Cuff It” and was recognized in the Best Dance/Electronic Music Album category.
