The R&B star decided to boycott the award show himself, after receiving 0 nominations in the 2021 Grammy Awards. It was understandable since he and his album After Hours received huge success, commercially and critically. However, it was completely ignored by the Recording Academy. “The Grammys remain corrupt.”, he said. He also stated that within more than 60 years in the history of it, there were only 10 albums by Black artists winning Album of the Years, implying that the award show is racist and colorist. 

#3. Drake

Nobody hates the Grammys more than Eminem himself. Despite the fact that he won several times and also performed on the show many years, nothing stops Eminem from dissing it for being corrupted, unfair and biased. “Then tell the Grammys to go and f*ck themselves, they suck the blood from all the biggest artists like some leeches”, he said in his song Fall.

Well, Kanye West is the king of being extra in every aspect. And nobody should piss him off, at all cost. Being angry with inequality in the music industry, especially in big award shows like the Grammys, he posted on his Twitter a video of him peeing on his own golden gramophone. He is obviously one of the celebrities who hate Grammys and was straightforward about it. The Grammys also banned him from it after this case.
