Justin Bieber Excluded From Grammy Nominations - And His Manager Isn't Happy About It

Proof that the Grammy Awards panel do actually discuss the merits of the albums and artists they pick for their shortlists, rather than just look at the biggest selling, came with the exclusion of pop starlet Justin Bieber from any of the major categories – and his manager wasn’t happy.

Bieber and his camp are used to getting things their own way, certainly his career’s attested to that given the 18 year-old’s phenomenal success. However, despite selling 374,000 copies of his second album Believe in the first week of release in the US earlier in the year, the album wasn’t deemed good enough by the panel to have any impact on their categories. Though Bieber himself hasn’t reacted to the news – awards are awards after all, it’s an inexact science – his manager Scooter Braun geared himself up into a rage and took to Twitter to lambast the decision.

"I just plain DISAGREE. The kid deserved it.” He thundered, going on to say "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." In a message to Bieber’s fans, Braun added "Looks like we get to stay the underdog a little longer". Indeed, multi-millionaire underdogs. Probably the best kind of underdog you could be really.
