Nicki Minaj received three Grammy nominations last year, but was surprisingly left out of the award nominations this year. However, she isn’t at all stressed or worried about it. Minaj spoke to The Associated Press about the situation and explained how she cares more about making music and touching her fans’ hearts than winning any awards.
“I’ve gotten tons of awards and I believe when it’s my time to get a Grammy, I’ll get a Grammy. I think that the Grammys had a different reason, that I do not want to discuss … and that’s just between me and them. But I respect their organization and I’ll get a Grammy eventually. I’m not worried about it.
“I understand that artists and critics make a big deal over the Grammys. But when I go to my shows and I’m selling out arenas in London, and when I’m in Australia and Japan, there aren’t any Grammys there. There are human beings who I’ve touched. There are human beings who are inspired by me, who I love dearly. And that’s what my career is based on.”
The 55th Annual Grammy Awards airs live on February 10th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. There’s been no confirmation that Nicki will be attending.
