(NOTE LANGUAGE) The nominations for the 65th annual Grammy Awards were announced Tuesday, prompting reactions from celebrities who either felt celebrated or snubbed.
Among those in celebration mode were first-time nominees GloRilla and Latto. GloRilla’s hit single “F.N.F. (Let’s Go)” received a nod in the category for Best Rap Performance, while Latto was nominated for both Best New Artist and Best Melodic Rap Performance.
“The same song they was clowning me & my friends about saying we was Ugly & Dusty just got nominated for a Grammy!!!!!!!!!” GloRilla wrote on Twitter. “WHEN GOD IS ON YOUR SIDE YOU CANNOT FAIL.”
Latto also credited God in her reaction to the nominations. “I’m crying so bad right now!!!! Never give up on your dreams yall!!! S*** gone get rough… but DONT GIVE UP,” she tweeted. In a follow-up post, she wrote, “ONE THING ABOUT GOD!!!!!”
The rappers exchanged congratulatory messages.
On the flip side, Summer Walker and Halle Bailey questioned why some artists failed to receive recognition from the Recording Academy.
“And for the grammys for a 2nd time, the math is literally not mathing,” Summer wrote on her Instagram Story. Neither she nor her album Still Over It, which was released in November 2021, were nominated for an award. “I was gone post some numbers but it’s ok,” she continued. “At least the streets f*** with me. y’all always pack out every show & support everytime I drop so thanks for the love I do receive.”
Halle congratulated all who were nominated, noting her sister should have been named a nominee. “my angel @ChloeBailey should’ve been nominated too but that’s ok because she will sweep next year!!!” she wrote, to which Chlöe responded, “it’s okay i don’t have a solo project out yet..yes next year for sure…and you too.”
