- Megan Thee Stallion has denied that the Grammy Awards are rigged
- The US rapper bagged three awards during the 63rd annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night
- Megan also showed love to The Weeknd who recently decided to boycott the Grammys from now on
Megan Thee Stallion has denied that the Grammy Awards were rigged after her historic wins on Sunday night, 14 March. The US rapper walked away with three awards for Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song.
The Savage Remix hitmaker slammed the rumours that her Grammy wins were pre-meditated. She said, "You win some, you lose some."
The Houston-born artist replied when TMZ asked what she thinks about the Grammys being rigged:
"Hell no, the Grammys aren't rigged."
The stunner also showed love to The Weeknd during the interview. The Weeknd recently revealed that he would no longer allow his record label to submit his music to the Grammy Awards.
He said he would boycott the awards from now on after the Recording Academy did not nominate any songs from his latest epic album, After Hours. When asked about The Weeknd's move to boycott the award, Megan said:
"We love The Weeknd."
Tweeps have shared mixed reactions to Megan's views on the prestigious awards. Check out some of the comments below:
"She needs to realise all her success over the past year is due to sympathy and TikTok. Congrats to her, but that was not a Grammy album and Savage Remix winning best rap song because Beyoncè is on it is crazy. Facts only and I’m not even a @theweeknd fan. He was robbed."
"Sympathy no, and TikTok did help and a lot of artists use it for promotion, I didn't even know he had an album out. I thought it was a song with an album coming later this year or something and on top of that she's been putting twice the work even after getting shot."
"She says that cause she knows her label got her those Grammys."
"They’re definitely rigged. As much as I like Nas, his album was NOT better than Freddie Gibbs' album. But of course it’s not rigged when you win."
"The Weeknd makes way better music than her, it just don’t make any sense. They snubbed him cause he performed at the Super Bowl and they didn’t like that."
"It’s only rigged when you lose."
