When the nominations for the Grammy Awards were announced, missing from the list of potential winners was teen singer Justin Bieber. Apparently this has his manager Scooter Braun in a fury.
Justin just recently dropped his third album, “Believe” and it has reached huge success. The album sold over a million copies and has spawned the number two song, “Boyfriend”. Scooter is ticked off that the album didn’t earn the teenager any nods from the Grammy board.
Scooter took to his Twitter account to say, “I just plain DISAGREE. The kid deserved it. Grammy board u blew it on this one. The hardest thing to do is transition, keep the train moving. The kid delivered. Huge successful album, sold out tour, and won people over…this time he deserved to be recognized and I don’t really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision I don’t agree with.”
He went on to say, “So to all those nominated…you do deserve it. You worked hard and u earned it. Just feel like so did JB.”
It wasn’t all smack talk for the Grammy board from Scooter, however. He did praise his other artist Carly Rae Jepsen for her hit song “Call Me Maybe”. He tweeted, “Congrats to Carly Rae Jepsen. Thought u deserved a Best New Artist nom, but proud Call Me Maybe got u 2 noms. So proud of u.”
