Justin Bieber's Grammy Snub: Manager Scooter Braun Says "I Disagree"
Justin Bieber may still be a belieber, but his manager Scooter Braun is losing a little bit of faith.
The 55th annual Grammy Awards nominations were announced Thursday, Dec. 6, and Bieber's name was not on the list. The 18-year-old "Baby" singer has been nominated for Grammy Awards before, but has never won.
"First . . . congrats to Carly Rae Jepsen. Thought you deserved a best new artist nom, but proud Call Me Maybe got you 2 noms. So proud of You," Braun, the head of Schoolboy Records which Jepsen is signed to, tweeted Thursday. "Second . . . this time there wont be any wise words, no excuses, I just plain disagree. The kid deserved it. Grammy board you blew it on this one."
"The hardest thing to do is transition, keep the train moving. The kid delivered. Huge successful album, sold out tour, and won people over…" the 31-year-old manager added. ". . . This time he deserved to be recognized and I don't really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision I don't agree with."
"So to all those nominated . . . you do deserve it. You worked hard and you earned it. Just feel like so did JB. "To his fans...looks like we get to stay the underdog a little longer. Bring it."
Bieber himself has yet to comment on his Grammy snub.
