The Grammys' Respond To The Weeknd's Boycott

It happens every year. The Grammy nominations arrive and with them the inevitable snubs and scorned reactions. Though many have simply chosen to pay the ceremony no mind, maintaining that it does not provide an accurate representation of assessing the quality of a given year, others have taken a more aggressive stance. In the case of The Weeknd, whose After Hours project was met with resounding silence from the Recording Academy, a full-blown boycott was the decided course of action.
