Amy Lee remembers her band's big win at the 2004 Grammy Awards when they beat 50 Cent as Best New Artist and notes that the rapper still talks about the snub years later.

AceShowbiz - Amy Lee has confessed 50 Cent "hates her guts." The Evanescence frontwoman has remembered the band winning best new artist over the "In Da Club" hitmaker at the 2004 Grammy Awards following their 2003 debut "Fallen" - which triumphed over the rapper's own first release "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" - after the rapper walked on stage as she delivered their acceptance speech.

"50 Cent hates my guts. It's just one of those thingsā€¦ I mean, truthfully, we thought he was going to win too. It was such a wild night. People are like, 'What was it like to win a Grammy?' and I'm like, 'Stressful!' I mean, it's wonderful now, to have them, but it was surrealā€¦ I just remember thinking, 'I don't even think anybody in this room knows who we are,' " she said to the Daily Beast.

She pointed out that 50 Cent didn't do anything "bad" when he interrupted her speech, but noted he still talks about "how he was robbed." She added, "He didn't do anything, he didn't grab the mic, it wasn't that bad. He just sort of like, made an appearance. No, he never said anything to me, but he likes to talk about me and how he was robbed. I don't want to start a beef with him."

When the rapper was awarded his Hollywood Walk of Fame star in 2020, the hip hop star ranted about the snub 16 years earlier. During his speech, he said, "You got the largest debut hip hop album [but] you don't got no Best New Artist trophy. The Best New Artist, they gave that to Evanescence. Can you find Evanescence? I ain't seen Evanescence since that night. Since that night they gave them the trophy."
