Frank Ocean announced that one of the reasons he won’t be attending is Taylor Swift‘s victory for Album of the Year last year.
Frank said he believed Kendrick Lamar‘s album should have been the Album of the Year winner, and Taylor‘s win was “hands down of the of most faulty TV moments I’ve seen.”
That despite Taylor has been nominated for 26 Grammys and won 10 (see which ones here.)
Meanwhile, the lack of even one nomination for Frank‘s two 2016 albums, Blonde and Endless, is the reason Kanye is sitting out the show this year. Back in October, Kanyemade the announcement he would not attend if Frank didn’t get nominated.
However, Frank‘s albums were deemed ineligible for this year’s Grammys, because they were not submitted by the deadline, according to the Grammys.

Could Justin Bieber and Rita Ora be planning a musical collaboration sometime soon? This video is sparking some rumors!
The pair were caught on Rita‘s Snapchat over the weekend performing together! Justin was on the piano, playing “All My Life,” originally by K-Ci and JoJo, and Rita is reportedly taking on vocals, though she can’t be seen.
Justin and Rita have spent time together in the past, so this could just be a fun hang – or perhaps, they’re working on some music together!

Apparently, the 22-year-old entertainer, who is up for 4 awards that night, doesn’t believe the show is “relevant or representative,” especially with concern to young artists.
This thinking got started with Frank Ocean, who didn’t even submit his album for consideration this year (though there are reports that it was not even eligible). Frank reportedly believes that the Grammys do not represent “young, black artists,” TMZ reports.
Kanye West and Drake apparently both agree with this sentiment, and also won’t be attending the February 12 show.
