There might be someone even more pissed off than Justin Bieber's rabid fans after the singer got a big fat zero in the Grammy nomination department this year: his manager Scooter Braun!
Plenty of people you've never heard of received a nomination for the February 10th show, but Justin wasn't one of them. After the nomination announcements, Scooter took to Twitter to tell the Grammy committee that they "blew it" with their decision. "The hardest thing to do is transition, keep the train moving. the kid delivered," he tweeted. "Huge successful album, sold out tour, and won people over...this time he deserved to be recognized and I dont really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision i dont agree with."
Scooter then spoke directly to the Beliebers by tweeting, "To his fans...looks like we get to stay the underdog a little longer. #BRINGIT." Right. Because selling 15 million albums and earning $55 million in the last 12 months makes Justin such an underdog. Pobrecito.
But hey, this isn't the American Music Awards. The fans don't decide who wins; a committee does, and the Grammys are notorious for skewing slightly older in their musical tastes. They may have nominated him twice last year in the Best Pop Vocal Album and Best New Artist categories, but he lost in both.
The Biebs may never be the critics' darling, but we're pretty sure he'll manage to sleep just fine tonight.
Do you think Justin should have been nominated for a Grammy?
