After scooping up three awards at the Grammys, Megan Thee Stallion was stopped by paparazzi, who asked her about her thoughts on allegations that the awards show is rigged.

After his highly successful album After Hours was snubbed, The Weeknd told The New York Times, “I will no longer allow my label to submit my music to the Grammys.” The album has gone double platinum and its hit single “Blinding Lights” has spent 52 weeks in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. In late 2020, The Weeknd called the Recording Academy “corrupt,” and he demanded more transparency regarding their voting process.
