Highlights From The 2019 Grammy Awards

The Grammys were handed out last night! Alicia Keys hosted the show, and among the winners – Drake, who scored the award for Best Rap song, and although it looked like he wouldn’t be there….he was. When accepting the award, Drake basically said you don’t need an award to validate you; that if you if you have people singing your songs, or coming to your shows, “you’ve already won.” That’s when the Grammy’s cut him off, which many pointed out online was “rude“. A spokesman for the Grammys says producers didn’t mean to cut Drake off, adding he took a “natural pause,” they assumed he was done and cut to a commercial.
