Record Exec Criticizes Grammys Over Eminem, Justin Bieber Snubs

In a full-page ad in the New York Times, record executive Steve Stoute criticized the Grammy Awards over the weekend, saying the show has become “a series of hypocrisies and contradictions.” Stoute was particularly critical of Grammy voters snubbing Kanye West, Eminem and Justin Bieber, while those popular artists are invited to perform on the show. A request for comment from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences was not immediately returned.

Of Beiber, who lost the Best New Artist award to jazz singer Esperanza Spalding, Stoute said, “How is it that Justin Bieber, an artist that defines what it means to be a modern artist, did not win Best New Artist?” Millions of Beliebers have asked the same question.
