12682366, The Grammys are taken seriously though

They garner lucrative bonuses for artists, and the Grammys have been the most prominent celebration of musical achievement for years. Your comment is akin to dismissing the Oscars as insignificant and not a true marker of cinematic and acting quality. These institutions are part of the problem, and you are essentially telling people to stop worrying about them because they will never recognize the contributions of the real artists in this genre, who just happen to be black and have been repeatedly snubbed by our cultural institutions. Sort of a tone deaf comment, especially when you try to rationalize this oversight with a comment about her stage show.
