Jay-Z Criticizes Grammy Awards During Acceptance Speech
While onstage accepting his award, Jigga shaded the Grammys for snubbing Beyoncé for Album of the Year on multiple occasions.
“And obviously, it’s subjective because it’s music,” he shared. “It’s opinion-based. I don’t want to embarrass this young lady, but she has the most Grammys than everyone and never won album of the year. So, even by your own metrics, that doesn’t work. Think about that: The most Grammys. Never won album of the year. That doesn’t work. Some of you gonna go home and feel like you’ve been robbed. Some of you may get robbed. Some of you don’t belong in the category.”
