Is It True That Justin Bieber Will Not Be Attending The Grammy Awards?

Will the Grammys miss Bieber?

Justin Bieber has held a strong grudge against the 2021 Grammy Awards for his album Changes. The Grammys are going to be held on Sunday, 14th March, and according to Page Six, the Monster singer wishes not to be a part of the musical night. Supposedly, Justin isn’t attending the event due to the category change for his nominated album.

Justin Bieber’s was nominated for four awards last November, Best Pop Solo Performance (“Yummy”), Best Pop Duo/Group Performance (“Intentions,” featuring Quavo), Best Pop Vocal Album, and Best Country Duo/Group Performance (for his feature on Dan + Shay’s “10,000 Hours”).

Justin Bieber shows his displeasure to Grammy Awards

But his album Changes was nominated for a Pop category instead of an R&B, which had apparently made Justin Bieber upset from the Grammy Awards. He posted a message on his Instagram account expressing his concern from the nomination board.

“I am flattered to be acknowledged and appreciated for my artistry. I am very meticulous and intentional about my music. With that being said, I set out to make an R&B album,” he wrote on Instagram following the nomination announcement. “‘Changes’ was and is an R&B album. It is not being acknowledged as an R&B album, which is very strange to me.”

Justin Bieber also expressed how this Grammy Award nomination made him feel “weird” as he had grown up to R&B music. He also claimed that it was an “undeniably, unmistakably an R&B album”.

“I grew up admiring R&B music and wished to make a project that would embody that sound. For this not to be put into that category feels weird, considering from the chords to the melodies to the vocal style, all the way down to the hip-hop drums that were chosen, it is undeniably, unmistakably an R&B album!”

Bieber is honored to be nominated

Although later on, Justin Bieber was also grateful for the recognition from Grammy Awards and thanked those who “fought for me to even have any noms”.” To be clear,” he added, “I absolutely love Pop music, it just wasn’t what I set out to make this time around. My gratitude for feeling respected for my work remains and I am honored to be nominated either way.”

There hasn’t been any revert from the Grammys on Bieber’s category change request. Now, time will only tell whether the singer will actually pull the plug to the Grammy Awards or will give a glimpse to his fans on a musical night.
