Ari Lennox’s reaction to not winning a Soul Train Music Award: “I quit”


Eva ZarAri Lennox was nominated for three Soul Train Awards, and when she did not win at the ceremony Sunday night, the “Shea Butter Baby” singer was so frustrated, she announced her career was over.

“No one will have to worry about me complaining after this current complaint,” Lennox wrote in a since deleted series of tweets that was captured by That Grape Juice. ”What I will not do is ever be this depressed again.”

“It’s not just an award. It wasn’t any award show. It was the soul train awards. As you can see I’m big fan of soul music and huge fan of soul train’s history,” she continued.

The 29-year-old singer was up for Best R&B/Soul Female Artist, Album/Mixtape of the Year for Shea Butter Baby, and Best Collaboration for the title tune featuring her mentor, J. Cole.

Obviously, Lennox expected to take home at least one trophy.

“Being snubbed was something I always expected and was definitely prepared for just not by them,” she continued in her Twitter rant. “My intent was to never shade other nominees. I’m hurt and I don’t expect soulless haters to understand that.”

Ari not only deleted her tirade and the comments, she erased her entire account so now her Twitter page is blank.

“I’m not selling out. So I quit,” she wrote. “This sh** ain’t for me… I’ll join the damn army.”

Lennox has thirteen concerts scheduled for Europe beginning December 2 in Oslo, Norway. So far, there is no word on whether she is canceling her tour.
