Nicki Minaj Just Called Out the Grammys 8 Years After Her Best New Artist Snub

Nicki Minaj is done staying quiet.

Shortly after the 2021 Grammy Award nominations were revealed on Tuesday, Nov. 24, the rapper decided to take to Twitter and reflect on her journey with the annual award show. In particular, the 37-year-old looked back on a specific year when she felt snubbed by voters.

“Never forget the Grammys didn’t give me my best new artist award when I had 7 songs simultaneously charting on Billboard & bigger first week than any female rapper in the last decade—went on to inspire a generation,” she wrote to her 21 million followers. “They gave it to the white man Bon Iver. #PinkFriday.”

During the 2012 Grammys, Bon Iver beat out Nicki and other nominees including Skrillex, J. Cole and The Band Perry for the highly coveted award. And although she has been nominated nine additional times, Nicki has yet to walk away with a trophy.
