Kanye West, Justin Bieber and Drake plan not to be at the Grammy Awards Feb. 12. Kanye is tired of his best songs losing to white artists. Drake will be on tour in Europe, and Justin will be “elsewhere” that night. James Corden will replace LL Cool J as this year’s host.
Kanye has been nominated for eight gongs at this year’s ceremony, but has always lost out when he’s gone head-to-head against a white singer.
Justin, 22, has received four nominations, but intends to be somewhere else on the night of the Grammys as he considers the ceremony to be unrepresentative.
Drake, on the other hand, is set to be on tour in Europe, even though he has received eight nominations.
