Did Lorde throw shade at Grammys?

Lorde is nominated for Best Album

"It has to begin with women who have the creativity in their hearts and souls, who want to be musicians, who want to be engineers, producers, and want to be part of the industry on the executive level", he said, according to People. All of her fellow (male) nominees in the Album of the Year category were. She posted a photo and wrote on Instagram, "My version of a white rose - THE APOCALYPSE WILL BLOSSOM - an excerpt from the greatest of all time, jenny holzer". Lorde was the only woman up for Album of the Year this year. These shows are always a matter of choices, and we know we have a box and the box gets full.

Following the awards show at Madison Square Garden in NY, many music fans questioned whether the Time's Up movement was just given lip service when the only woman nominated for album of the year, New Zealand singer Lorde, was also the only artist in that category who wasn't offered a solo performance during the show.

Ehrlich also told Variety, "Hopefully we'll see Taylor Swift next year". The "Bartier Cardi" artist did not receive any GRAMMY nods at the 2018 ceremony, but she performed as a featured collaborator on Bruno Mars' new single "Finesse" during the show. She did get a solo performance spot with "Broken Clocks", though quite a few viewers noted her lack of wins.


This, despite the fact that the show had a strong #MeToo theme, both overall and via Kesha's performance of "Praying" and Janelle Monae's introducing speech.

An industry awards show is nothing if not a snapshot of its time - and this year's Grammy Awards ceremony took place in the midst of a groundswell of discussion about gender equality and sexual misconduct, much of which has rocked the entertainment industry with a series of high-profile scandals. "We come in peace, but we mean business. We say time's up for pay inequality, time's up for discrimination, time's up for harassment of any kind, and time's up for the abuse of power". She shied away from mentioning her award nomination or the drama surrounding her performance snub and focused instead on her introduction to the "Bodak Yellow" rapper. They pointed to a new study from the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, which found that of the 899 people nominated in the last six Grammy awards, only 9.3% were women.
