Justin Bieber has responded to being completely shut out of this year’s Grammy Award nominations, according to Yahoo! News.
Although the Canadian pop star has sold millions of albums and is adored by countless fans around the globe, the governing powers behind the Grammy Awards decided Bieber wasn’t worthy of a single nomination.
His fans were understandably irritated by the lack of recognition their idol received.
“Thank you to all of my beautiful fans out there. I don’t need a Grammy to have your love. You guys are still so incredible,” the singer said during a recent radio interview.
In order to make sure his fans didn’t blow a fuse over the Grammy Awards snub, Bieber took to Twitter to ease their frazzled nerves.
“And i met what i said at the end. finally answered about the grammys. I got you guys. that is all i need. Im all good (sic),” he tweeted.
While Justin Bieber handled the Grammy situation with grace and poise, manager Scooter Braun was a bit more opinionated when asked about the snub.
This is what he had to say on the subject:
“The hardest thing to do is transition, keep the train moving. The kid delivered. Huge successful album, sold out tour, and won people over. This time he deserved to be recognized and I don’t really have any kind, nice, positive things to say about a decision I don’t agree with. Looks like we get to stay the underdog a little longer.”
Even X Factor boss Simon Cowell thought the Canadian singer should have received at least one Grammy nomination.
“You know what? He deserved one (a nomination), I think. But they can get a bit snobby sometimes,” he explained to TMZ. “He won’t be crying too much. He’s doing fine.”
