Chris Brown has taken to social media to slam the Grammy Awards as meaningless after his latest work was snubbed.
Brown won the coveted music award for Best R&B Album in 2012, but his latest album, Royalty, did not get a nomination nod this year.
“#GRAMMY? This is probably the main reason I love being free to create any kind of music I want. Too many people kiss ass and work less [sic],” Brown wrote on Twitter.
Although his solo work was snubbed by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences for a Grammy this year, Brown did get some recognition in the form of a nomination in the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration category for featuring on the song “Only” with Lil’ Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Drake.
“I’m thankful to my fans, I am able to be the best artist I can without having to conform to the ways of my peers. I also need my commission,” he vented further on Twitter.
The 2016 Grammy Awards ceremony will take in Los Angeles place two weeks from Monday on 15 February.
