2013 Grammy Award Nominations Announced; Justin Bieber’s Manager Angry

alt

The 2013 Grammy Award nominations are out! See who made the cut and who was snubbed. Plus, one singer’s manager goes on a Twitter rant for his exclusion!

Last night the nominees were announced and Justin Bieber’s name was shockingly not among them. His manager, Scooter Braun was livid, to say the least. He blasted back on Twitter, “I just plain DISAGREE. The kid deserved it. Grammy board u blew it on this one. The hardest thing to do is transition, keep the train moving. the kid delivered. Huge successful [sic] album, sold out tour, and won people over… this time he deserved to be recognized and I dont really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision i dont agree with. So to all those nominated…you do deserve it. You worked hard and u earned it. Just feel like so did JB… To his fans…looks like we get to stay the underdog a little longer. #BRINGIT”
