The Grammy’s Lack of Cultural Relevancy

Kanye West and other celebs did not attend the 59th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 12, 2017. The obvious note is that Portnow and the Grammy’s responded to Kanye’s official boycott from 2017 Grammy’s, indicating that they will hold a summit in response to Wests’ tweet via Twitter.

Kanye shifting and parroting his focus from The Grammy’s with attendance to New York Fashion Week is a delightful anecdote within replacing one career with the next.




Kanye requested a “sit down” with Neil Portnow, President/CEO National Academy of Recording Arts and Science via Twitter. The issue for music is culture; this is making Kanye pinpoint artists’ relevancy; while utilizing key  fashions which are not highlighted on red carpet during the Grammy Awards. The “show must go on” is a watered down reaction to the detailing of music’s evolution. Adele walked away with 5 Grammys the night of the 59th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, winning the Album of the Year category for “25”, thanking Beyoncé for empowering her and her black friends. The diversity in the music is simply classic and celebratory.
