Zayn slammed the Recording Academy on Twitter Tuesday (March 9th).
The former One Direction singer wrote, “F*ck the grammy’s and everyone associated. Unless you shake hands and send gifts, there’s no nomination considerations. Next year I’ll send you a basket of confectionary.”
Zayn, who did not release an album during this year’s eligibility period, clarified in a subsequent tweet that his comments were “not personal or about eligibility but was about the need for inclusion and the lack of transparency of the nomination process and the space that creates and allows favoritism, racism, and networking politics to influence the voting process.”
