'Speechless' for being excluded from the nomination list, the 'So in Love' singer tweets, 'I don't need a Grammy. I deserve it and I'm clear on that.'
Jill Scott is one of the artists who are not impressed with the nomination list of the upcoming 54th annual Grammy Awards. The soul singer didn't hide her disappointment upon learning that she's excluded from the list. She also agreed with her Twitter followers who questioned about the absence of fellow singers Beyonce Knowles and Miguel.
"0 nominations. I'm speechless. Cover of Billboard, #1 cd in the country, tied/broke the record for Urban radio. Ok...so...ok. Wow," she wrote. When one of her fans mentioned the Miguel snub, she replied, "No Miguel?!?!? Huh!!!? Again appalled." To another who pointed out the Beyonce exclusion, she answered, "excuse me?!?!? No 'Love on Top'? This can't be right."
When a fan consoled her by saying she didn't need "those Illuminati-driven award shows," Jill noted, "Needing and deserving are 2 different things. I'm not even saying I'd win." She followed it up with another message later, "I don't need a Grammy. I deserve it & I'm clear on that. The Light of the Sun was/is magical . We were lifted & filled w/ truth."
Beyonce herself hasn't said a word about, but Miguel has expressed his resentment for not making into the list. "I'm F**king P***ed Yo. I don't think I'm Gods gift to music but I know the Album or at LEAST Sure Thing should have been Nominated." Though admitting the snub was "really hurt," he wrote, "Congrats to all the nominees."
While Jill and Miguel were absent in all the categories of Grammys, Beyonce managed to score at least two nods. The wife of rapper Jay-Z is up for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration ("Party") and Best Long Form Music Video ("I Am... World Tour").
