Here are some controversial moments from the 2024 Grammy Awards.
While the Grammys is a night of celebrating music, it doesn’t go off without its fair share of controversy.
The Grammy goes to Killer Mike.
Killer Mike’s Grammy day was one for the books. He took home three trophies at the Grammy Premiere Ceremony, winning every award he was nominated for.
I want to thank everyone who dares to believe that art can change the world.
But before the broadcast even began, The Hollywood Reporter captured Killer Mike in handcuffs being removed from Crypto.com Arena. According to the LAPD, he was detained for an altercation at the event. Killer Mike was booked for misdemeanor battery and released later that evening. Speaking of rap Grammys, one of Killer Mike’s awards, best rap song, was mistakenly announced as being won by Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice for “Barbie World.” Many Barbz were upset because this would have been Nicki Minaj’s first Grammy after 12 nominations.
When it came time for the actual show, Jay-Z called out the Recording Academy for recognizing Beyoncé’s music, but never given her album of the year.
I don’t want to embarrass this young lady, but she has more Grammys than everyone and never won album of the year, so even by your own metrics, that doesn’t work.
Behind the scenes, Miley Cyrus called out Flavor Flav.
You know it’s me! I’ve made it! You don’ think I’m Gwen Stefani anymore!
But of course it was all in good fun.
