If Chris Brown was invited to the upcoming 58th Grammy Awards ceremony, he may soon find his invitation withdrawn.
The 26-year-old singer took to Twitter Friday evening to share his thoughts on his sparse nominations at the 2016 Grammys and he didn’t mince words.
“#GRAMMY?,” Brown wrote. “This is probably the main reason i love being free to create any kind of music I want. Too many people kiss a– And work less.”
The “Fine By Me” singer’s latest album, Royalty, garnered no nominations from the Grammy committee and the only nomination he did receive was for singing the hook on Nicki Minaj’s Drake and Lil Wayne assisted “Only,” which got a Best Rap/Song Collaboration nod. According to Breezy, the Grammys just don’t mean what they used to mean.
“If u turn on ya radio right now I promise within the hour you will hear CHRIS BROWN on damn near half the songs or I’ve cowritten,” Brown continued. ”The awards used to mean something. Now it’s about likes, and memes.”
“A lot of y’all favorites are my Children!” he went on to boast.
For all his chest-thumping, Breezy decided to end the rant on a positive note by thanking his fans.
“I’m thankful to my fans, I am able to be the best artist I can without having to conform to the ways of my peers. I also need my commission,” he added before deleting the entire rant.
Brown has been nominated for a total of 15 Grammys throughout his career but thus far has only won one – Best R&B Album for 2012’s F.A.M.E.
The 58th annual Grammy Awards are scheduled to air live on CBS on February 15 at 8 p.m. EST.
