Scooter Braun Slams Grammys for Snubbing Justin Bieber

Why won't the Grammys show Bieber some love?

Do the Grammys have it out for Justin Bieber? Bieber Nation is starting to think so. The first insult was in 2011 when the Grammys named upright bass-playing jazz artist Esperanza Spalding the Best New Artist instead of Bieber. This caused many bewildered Beliebers to ask "Who the hell is Esperanza Spalding?" and "What's jazz"?

And now, this diss—the Grammys failed to nominate the Canadian pop star for even one Grammy next year. That means come February 10, 2013, the heartthrob will have to take consolation amongst his millions of fans/dollars instead of basking in the glory of a new gold statue for his mantelpiece.

Beliebers aren't taking this snub lightly—many took immediate action by attacking Psy on Twitter, whom they mistakenly believed was nominated for a Grammy (he wasn't) instead of Bieber. But why Psy and not Carly Rae Jepsen, for instance, who actually WAS nominated for two Grammys? Well, minorities are always a popular target amongst hysterical, outraged masses ("It's not in English!" one outraged fan tweeted).

Eschewing latent racism and misinformation, Bieber's manager Scooter Braun also tweeted his anger and frustration at the situation. "Grammy board, u blew it on this one," Braun said at the onset of a volley of tweets. Check 'em out below.
