Nicki Minaj On The Grammys: "I respect their organization and I'll get a Grammy eventually"

Nicky Minaj issued a frank response to her Grammy snub, insisting that she'll get one eventually, and that her sold out live shows are more important that winning awards.

"I think that the Grammys had a different reason [for not nominating me] that I do not want to discuss," Minaj said in a recent interview with the Associated Press. "And that's just between me and them. But I respect their organization and I'll get a Grammy eventually. I'm not worried about it." In fact, the American Idol judge was in jovial spirits, and doesn't seem willing to let the snub get to her. saying, "I've gotten tons of awards and I believe when it's my time to get a Grammy, I'll get a Grammy."

She also insisted that, as a musician, it's doing her job, not recognition for her job, that is most important to her. "I understand that artists and critics make a big deal over the Grammys," she continued. "But when I go to my shows and I'm selling out arenas in London, and when I'm in Australia and Japan, there aren't any Grammys there," she said. "There are human beings who I've touched. There are human beings who are inspired by me, who I love dearly. And that's what my career is based on."
