Drake doesn’t want his latest Grammy Awards

Published

on

Drake doesn’t want his 2017 Grammy Awards because it “feels weird” to accept rap prizes for what he considers a pop song.

The singer won the Best Rap/Sung Performance and Best Rap Song for his track Hotline Bling at the Los Angeles prizegiving on 12 February (17), but Drake isn’t happy with the outcome as he disagrees with the genre the song was placed in.

“I’m apparently a rapper, even though Hotline Bling is not a rap song,” Drake said during the OVO Sound radio show on Beats 1. “The only category they can manage to fit me in is in a rap category, maybe because I’ve rapped in the past or because I’m black. I can’t figure out why.

“I won two awards, but I don’t even want them because it just feels weird for some reason. It just doesn’t feel right to me.”

Drake also said he feels like he is being “purposefully” alienated by Grammys organisers who are “making” him win rap awards or trying to “pacify” him by putting him on the shortlist for rap awards because they don’t know how else to categorise him.

The rapper/singer, who conducted the interview the day after the awards ceremony, added he was proud to have made a pop song that was “one of the biggest songs of the year” and although he loves the rap community, he can’t understand why he gets no credit for his pop achievements.

The 30-year-old, who said he aspires to be like Michael Jackson, also revealed he had been approached to cancel two of his London concerts so he could attend the ceremony but he turned it down.

The European leg of his Boy Meets World tour began at the end of January (17) and is currently in Dublin, Ireland.

Shia LaBeouf’s anti-Trump project is back, in a new location

Shia LaBeouf’s anti-Trump art installation has passersby read the text “He will not divide us” as part of an Internet livestream. Though clearly that’s a sentiment about the new president, it’s also something LaBeouf and his collaborators are saying about the project’s first venue.

The “participatory performance artwork” by LaBeouf and collaborators Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner launched outside New York’s Museum of the Moving Image on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20, but has since been shut down. According to LaBeouf’s site, the New York museum “abandoned the project” on Feb. 10, and the installation relocated to a wall outside the El Rey Theater in Albuquerque, N.M. on Feb. 20.

The Museum of the Moving Image says that it shut down the project, because it “created a serious and ongoing public safety hazard for the Museum, its visitors, staff, local residents and businesses.” It continued: “While the installation began constructively, it deteriorated markedly after one of the artists was arrested on the site of the installation and ultimately necessitated this action.”

The artist the museum is referring to? LaBeouf, who pulled the scarf off an unidentified 25-year-old man.

LaBeouf’s site explained the fallout with the New York museum this way: “From the outset, the museum failed to address our concerns about the misleading framing of our piece as a political rally, rather than as a participatory performance artwork resisting the normalisation (sic) of division ..It is our understanding that the museum bowed to political pressure in ceasing their involvement with our project … As of February 18, 2017, we are proud to be continuing HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US at the El Rey Theater, Albuquerque.”
