Kanye, Bieber and Drake Bail On The Grammy’s | TMZ Live


CHARLES: ALSO ON CBS, A FEW BIG STARS THAT YOU WILL NOT BE SEEING AT THE GRAMMYS. THAT WOULD BE KANYE, KANYE WEST, JUSTIN BIEBER AND DRAKE, WHO WILL ALL BE SITTING OUT THE GRAMMYS. YOU TOOK MAIN THE THREE BIGGEST MALE STARS THERE AND THEY’VE DECIDED THEY’RE NOT GOING TO THE GRAMMYS BECAUSE THEY EACH HAVE SOME BEACH WITH THE WAY THE GRAMMYS ARE RUN AND THE WAY THE AWARDS ARE HANDED OUT. CHARLIE: DIFFERENT BEEF BUT THIS IS A HUGE DEAL. NUMBER ONE, JUSTIN IS UP FOR FOUR NOMINATION, DRAKE IS UP FOR EIGHT. KANYE IS UP FOR EIGHT BUT WE’RE TOLD THAT A LOT OF ARTISTS FEEL THAT THE GRAMMYS ARE SO OR KAYIC AND OUTDATED AND NOT REALLY REPRESENTATIVE, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO JUNG — YOUNG ARTISTS. WE’RE TOLD THAT’S ONE OF THE REASONS WHY JUSTIN IS NOT GOING BECAUSE THEY FEEL HE THEY DON’T REPRESENT HIM OR ANYTHING ABOUT HIM. CHARLES: ONE OF THE SIGN POSTS FOR THIS WAS THE FACT THAT FRANK OCEAN DIDN’T EVEN SUBMIT HIS ALBUM. EVERYONE SAID IT WAS PHENOMENAL LAST YEAR. HORROR VAY — HARVEY: JUSTIN IS NOT GOING TO SHOW. KANYE SENIOR A — FOR A DIFFERENT REASONS. CHARLES: — CHARLIE: KANYE FEELS THAT THIS IS KIND OF A RACE ISSUE, THAT EVERY TIME HE’S AGAINST A WHITE ARTIST THAT HE DOESN’T WIN IN THAT SITUATION. CHARLIE — CHARLES: I KNOW THAT’S WHAT WE’RE HEARING FROM PEOPLE IN HIS CAMP. I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT. IS THAT POSSIBLE? THAT CAN’T BE. CHARLIE: WE’VE BEEN DOING RESEARCH ABOUT THIS AND WE CANNOT FIND ANYTHING. HARVEY: WELL, HE HAS BEEN UP AGAINST WHITE ARTISTS AND THIS HAS BEEN AN ISSUE. WHETHER THIS IS ROCK SOLID OR NOT, BASED ON WHAT I’M TOLD, IT’S HIS PERCEPTION. I WANT TO STRESS THIS BECAUSE DRAKE IS NOT GOING EITHER. HE’S GOING TO BE IN EUROPE ON TOUR BUT HE COULD MAKE PROVISIONS IF HE WANTED TO. IT’S NOT LIKE PEOPLE ARE ANGRY AT THE EMMYS THE WAY THEY WERE AT THE OSCARS. IT’S THAT THEY JUST DON’T CARE AND THAT IT’S NOT RELEVANT TO THEIR ART, THEIR MUSIC, THEIR SALES, AND IT’S NOT A PRIORITY. CHARLES: THERE’S SOMETHING REFRESHING ON A — ABOUT THAT. WE ALWAYS SAY, THAT WHEN THE AWARDS COME AROUND, IF YOU’VE SOLD 12 MILLION ALBUMS, WHY DO YOU NEED THIS STATUTE TO VALIDATE — HARVEY: YOU COULD SAY THE SAME THING ABOUT MOVIES. CHARLES: WE DO. CALLER: I THINK THE GRAMMYS ARE TOTALLY IRRELEVANT. THEY’RE NOT FUN ANYMORE. YOU MOSTLY WATCH IT TO LOOK AT THE CLOTHES ON THE RED CARPET, LIKE A LOT OF OTHER SHOWS. SO LANGS’S ALBUM WAS AMAZING. I THINK SHE ONLY GOT TWO NOMINATIONS. FRANK OCEAN HAD A WONDERFUL ALBUM AND WHEN YOU HAVE ARTISTS LIKE THAT WHO WANT TO SIT OUT, THAT’S A REALLY LOW BLOW. CHARLES: THE AWARDS ASIDE, TO ME IT’S THE BEST AWARDS SHOW BECAUSE IT’S REALLY A CONCERT. HARVEY: BETTER THAN US THAN THE ARTISTS IN SOME CASES.
