Lorde was just disrespected in the most sexist way
She was the only one treated like this
by Amanda Ross
Last year, Lorde wrote and recorded one of the most critically and commercially successful albums of 2017 — and she was just 21 at the time.
So it was zero surprise that she was nominated for Album of the Year, the Grammy Awards' most distinguished honor, alongside the likes Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, and Bruno Mars. Actually, alongside all men. Traditionally, each Album of the Year nominee will perform a song or selection from said album, and this year is no except. Well, except for…one exception!
According to a Variety, Lorde was the only nominee to not be offered her own performance slot. Reportedly, the Recording Academy asked her to sing part of "American Girl" for a tribute to Tom Petty, and that's it. Lorde unsurprisingly declined because a) she's not even American, and b) it's bullshit she couldn't perform her own material.
While this is a notably more progressive year for the Grammy's in terms of performances and nominees, it's still pretty telling that there was only ONE female Album of the Year nominee (and if you recall, SZA, Miley, Kesha, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry were all eligible) and she was shut out in such a major way.
