The Weeknd: Grammys ‘mean nothing to me’ after nominations snub

The Weeknd said he no longer cares about being snubbed by the Grammys, after getting zero nominations this year.

The singer headlined the Super Bowl half-time show on February 7, and was asked by Billboard how he felt about the snub.

He said, “I personally don’t care anymore. I have three Grammys, which mean nothing to me now, obviously. I suck at giving speeches anyways. Forget awards shows.”

The Canadian performer, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, said his focus is now on “dialing in on the fans at home and making performances a cinematic experience.”

Although the Superbowl’s organizers covered all production costs, his manager said the singer put up seven million dollars of his own money to make the ” half-time show be what he envisioned.”

He famously put on attention-grabbing shows when he won at the MTV VMAs, appearing with a bloodied face, and at the American Music Awards, where his face was covered with bandages.
