Nicki Minaj Calls Out Grammys For Not Winning Best New Artist In 2012

Following the announcement of the 2021 Grammy Awards nominations, American star rapper, Nicki Minaj slammed the Recording Academy for snubbing her in 2012.

AllNews earlier reported that the nominees' list was announced on Tuesday, November 24, with Nigerian singer Burna Boy making it to the list.

In a series of tweets on her official page, Minaj recalled how she was snubbed and lost in the Best New Artist category of the awards in 2012.

She tweeted "Never forget the Grammys didn't give me my best new artist award when I had 7 songs simultaneously charting on Billboard & bigger first week than any female rapper in the last decade—went on to inspire a generation."

She told her 21 million followers that "They gave it to the white man Bon Iver. #PinkFriday."

During the 2012 Grammys, Bon Iver beat out Nicki and other nominees including Skrillex, J. Cole, and The Band Perry for the highly coveted award.

Even though she has been nominated nine additional times, Minaj is yet to walk away with a trophy.

Recall that the rapper, a year ago, claimed she was mistreated by the Recording Academy and afraid to speak out about her experience.

"I was bullied into staying quiet for 7 years out of fear," she claimed on social media back in February 2019. "Also, CONGRATS to everyone who won last night."
