During a new interview, the singer threw some shade at the Grammys! She opened up about the music industry and couldn’t help but speak not so nicely about the awards show.
‘In the music business, if you care about the Grammys and submitting your stuff before a certain time frame, you want a single out in the summer, and then you want to have your record before the deadline, which has changed. Frankly, I do not give a damn.’
But that doesn’t mean Mariah doesn’t have her fair share of trophies.
‘I mean, I have five Grammys. That is cute. There are people that have been doing this half the time that have twice as many. I won two Grammys the first year I started, but after that, are like, ‘We do not go with the people selling a lot of records and are popular; we are gonna go the opposite way.’ So, I got screwed out of certain years,’ she explained.
The reality is that she has managed to stay relevant for a long time in a very competitive field.
In addition to that, we hear that she is back in the recording studio!
‘I am kind of restarting, and I am working with Roc Nation now, so that is great. I had an incredible meeting – just musical, a good meeting of the minds– with Jay Brown, Jay-Z, and Tyran Smith. We just kind of threw some ideas around, so we are starting from the musical place rather than, like, what is the hook? It is gotta be done that way.’
We’re definitely excited to hear some new music from her!
