    Halsey Called Out The Grammy Nomination Process On Instagram, And It's Quite Something

    "It's not always about the music or quality or culture."

    After not being nominated for her album Manic, Halsey just went off on her Instagram story about the Grammys.

    "The Grammys are an elusive process. It can be about behind the scenes private performances, knowing the right people, campaigning through the grapevine — with just enough handshakes and 'bribes' that can be just ambiguous enough to pass as 'not-bribes,'" she wrote.

    "If you get that far, it's about committing to exclusive TV performances and making sure you help the Academy make their millions in advertising on the night of the show."

    "While I am THRILLED for my talented friends who were recognized this year, I am hoping for more transparency or reform. But I'm sure this post will blacklist me anyway," she concluded.

    holy fuck @phoebe_bridgers !!!!!!!!!

    This isn't the first time Halsey has spoken about the Grammy process this year — she recently tweeted, “I musta pissed somebody off a long time ago cause I don’t think they fukk wit me.”

    She's not the only celeb to have taken to social media after this year's nominations came out — The Weeknd has been super vocal ever since his record-breaking After Hours wasn't nominated for a single award.

    The Grammys remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency...
