Prepare For The Wrath Of The Swifties And The Beyhive: Taylor Swift And Beyonce Were Shut Out Of The Major Grammy Categories

December 7, 2018 / Posted by:

Every single Grammy voter better arm themselves with RAID Beyhive spray (yes, they make that) and Katy Purry Purrfume (a cat dies every time I type that), because their Gods, Taylor Swift and Beyonce, were denied a nomination in the major categories. The Grammy nominations were announced this morning, and while Tay Tay and Bey Bey were thrown some nominations (aka PITY NOMS!), they didn’t make it into Album of the Year, Record of the Year or Song of the Year. They also didn’t make the Best New Artist cut, and no, they’re far from new, but I’m sure their fans are screaming, “They reinvent themselves with each album they do so they’re a new artist each time!!!!”

Meanwhile, Post Malone, who I’m convinced is a Shia LaBeouf performance art piece based on his favorite Garbage Pail Kid, got nominations for AOTY and ROTY. The Beyhive better not even try to come for Post Malone, because the mutated gnats always buzzing around him will bite off their heads. They’ve been warned.

Taylor’s album Reputation got one nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album. Everything Is Love, the album that Beyonce did with Mr. Beyonce, got a few nominations but none of the major ones. And even after all that promo and hard work on the Instagram stroll, Ariana Grande was kept in the pop categories. But even though Taylor, Beyonce, Ariana, and Stacey Q (no, I will never forgive the pieces of uncouth trash at the Grammys for never giving Stacey Q a nom) were left out of the major categories, women are ruling those categories. Five out of eight of the AOTY nominees are women.

You can see all of the nominations here, but I’ve copy + pasted a bunch of the categories below. Kendrick Lamar got the most nominations with eight, Drake got seven, Boi-1da and Brandi Carlile got six each, and Cardi B and Childish Gambino each got five. And let’s play a drinking game. Every time you see a name you don’t recognize, do a shot of Milk of Magnesia because you old!
