The singer who had some things to get off her chest went ahead to blast the awards stating that she was denied her ‘best new artist award’  when she had 7 songs topping the billboard simultaneously.

Expressing her displeasure, Nicki went ahead to assert that even though she went on to inspire a generation, they handed over the award to a white man – Bon Iver.

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. They gave it to the white man Bon Iver. #PinkFriday
