Sunday was one of the biggest musical evenings, as the grand 65th Grammy Awards ceremony took place. While the ceremony honors music legends for their contributions to the music scene, it also raises new controversies every year. This year, history repeated itself once again, when Beyonce’s fans were furious because their idol lost the Album of the Year award to Harry Styles.
The British singer became famous as a member of the band One Direction. The Briton remained a member of the band until the band broke up. He then began his solo career with “Sign of the Times”. And this year at the Grammy Awards, the artist received the biggest award for his latest album “Harry’s House”.
Beyonce fans trolled Harry Styles during his Grammy Acceptance Speech
Harry Styles’ Harry’s House and Beyonce’s Renaissance competed for the Album of the Year award. However, Styles beat Queen Bey and won this award for the third time. While fans of the singer Adore You were delighted, fans of Beyonce were outraged. They did not hide their discontent. Instead, according to Koimoi, they hit the 29-year-old and humiliated him when he went up on stage to accept the award.
Fans in the crowd shouted at him to leave the stage; one even openly told him that he was unworthy of the award. While fans may think that the Falling singer stole the “Cuff It” singer award, Styles rather emphasized that one should never forget that there is no competition in music in his acceptance speech. All artists hoping to create music. Although it was a pretty good thank-you speech and he handled the situation well, behind the scenes Stiles was rather wary of answering a question related to Beyonce.
This event was reminiscent of the time when Kanye West ignored Taylor Swift’s victory at the 2009 VMA. While Swift was accepting the award for best video, Ye interrupted her on stage. Then he grabbed the microphone from her and said that Beyonce has the best music video, and the award means nothing. Meanwhile, Taitai was the first to express support for her ex-boyfriend during his performance at this Grammy.
Despite losing, Beyonce won the award for Best R&B and Best Dance/Electronic Album this year. So it wasn’t such a loss, was it? What do you think about it? Share your thoughts in the comments.
