Halsey - who's received two Grammy nominations to date, but has yet to win the award - begins her Instagram message on the Grammys snub by emphasizing that many individuals had reached out to offer words of support.
"The Grammys are an elusive process", Halsey admitted.
""(The process) can often be about private performances, about meeting the right people and campaigning informally, with handshakes and "bribes" that they can be ambiguous enough not to seem like it", wrote the interpreter of" Without me ".
According to the 26-year-old singer, some artists only "get that far" since they commit themselves to exclusive projects with the Academy.
Halsey further busted the Recording Academy, saying that it does not look at the music, quality, or even culture.
She accused the Grammys of "egregious conflicts of interest, improper self-dealing by Board members and voting irregularities with respect to nominations for Grammy Awards, all made possible by the "boys" club' mentality and approach to governance at the Academy" in her legal complaint. @theweeknd deserves better, and Manic did too perhaps it's unbecoming of me to say so but I can't care anymore. I am hoping for more transparency or reform.
She noted that her post will "blacklist me anyway".
It didn't take long for the shock to set in after this year's nominations.
The Weeknd recently hit out at the event after his album "After Hours" was snubbed. You owe transparency to me, my fans and the industry " Wrote the singer of" Blinding lights "and" Can't feel my face "on Instagram.
Grammy Awards 2020 became controversial after several musicians and singers expressed their reservations over the process. The Weeknd, Lady Gaga, Drake and FKA Twigs are just a few of the artists many believe should've earned nominations this year.
He tweeted, 'Collaboratively planning a performance for weeks to not being invited?'
"For The Weeknd, in every year you only have a certain amount of people you can nominate for each category", Mason said to Billboard.
This comment is particularly noteworthy because some have suggested that The Weeknd's Super Bowl LV halftime show - which is set to take place one week after the 63rd Grammy Awards ceremony - contributed to his receiving zero nominations.
