Some of the music industry’s biggest names were no-shows at tonight’s Grammy Awards.
Taylor Swift skipped the show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, according to Variety. The 10-time Grammy winner is filming the musical adaptation of “Cats” in London.
Childish Gambino, who won record of the year, best rap/sung performance and best music video, didn’t attend the show, even though his hit “This is America” made history by being the first rap tune to win song of the year.
Rapper Kendrick Lamar was also a no-show. His song “King’s dead” tied with Anderson .Paak’s “Bubblin” for best rap performance.
Meanwhile, Ariana Grande was so over the Grammys. She took to Twitter on Thursday to air her grievances after she said Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich stifled her creativity and self-expression.
“It’s just a game y’all.. and i’m sorry but that’s not what music is to me,” she tweeted.
Kelly Clarkson, who was also nominated tonight, didn’t walk the red carpet and go to the show because she’s on tour.
And Lady Gaga and her “A Star is Born” co-star Bradley Cooper split award-show duties tonight. Cooper attended the BAFTAs in London while Gaga performed “Shallow” at the Grammys and won for best pop duo/group performance.
