Fresh out of her important three peat sweep at the Grammy Awards last night, Stallion Megan Thee weighs on the debate on the rigging of the award ceremony. In her response, she simultaneously shows her support for The weekend despite his own problems with the Recording Academy.
Leaving The Highlight Room rooftop bar and grill in Hollywood on Sunday evening (March 14), TMZ caught up with the Houston Hottie to congratulate her on winning big at the musical ceremony earlier in the evening. During the conversation, Megan was asked about the Grammys rigging.
“Damn no, the Grammys are not rigged”, the first XXL Freshman 2019 replied. “Bitch, you lose, you win.”
Meg was then asked what she thought of The Weeknd announcing that he would be boycott the Grammys. Megan quickly responded, showing her love for the 31-year-old singer. “We love The Weeknd,” she said. “We stan.”
Three days before the Grammys aired, the Canadian crooner announced that he no longer submit his music to the Recording Academy for review, according to The New York Times. “Because of the secret committees, I will no longer allow my label to submit my music to the Grammys,” he told the publication.
Abel also blew up the Grammy Awards last November, calling the Recording Academy – which oversees the prestigious awards ceremony – “corrupt.” “The Grammys remain corrupt,” he said in an Instagram post at the time. “You owe me, my fans and the industry, transparency.”
Megan currently has a different relationship with the Grammy committee. Last night, the 26-year-old rapper took home the award for best new artist, Best Rap Song for “Savage (Remix)” with Beyoncé and Best Rap Performance for the Same Song. While Megan Thee Stallion didn’t win the year’s record, pop star Billie Eilish dedicated her victory to Megan, insisting the young MC should have been the winner.
