Followers React to Harry Types Profitable Album of the Yr Over Beyoncé on the 2023 Grammys
“This doesn’t occur to folks like me typically,” Harry Types instructed Grammys audiences upon receiving tonight’s Album of the Yr award. Analysts are nonetheless furiously debating what, exactly, the bedazzled younger artist meant by this confounding assertion, however regardless—Types, and the remainder of us, had been shocked after the artist beat out Beyoncé, Unhealthy Bunny, Lizzo, and extra to clinch the night’s greatest honor.
The “As It Was” singer climbed the neon-lit stage as a torrent of (principally rage-induced) reactions poured onto social media, with essentially the most livid indictments coming from Beyoncé followers, who’ve amassed ample proof that the Grammys have carried out nothing however disrespect their reigning queen for years. (Keep in mind what occurred with Lemonade?)
For a second, neglect Types’ appeal and bravado, his shining Gucci fits and dulcet tones; there’s a motive the singer himself appeared simply as shocked by the upset because the viewers. (He began his speech with a easy however efficient declaration: “Shit.”) Beyoncé is the most awarded artist in Grammys historical past. And but she has not one single Album of the Yr award. One thing about that math isn’t including up; and followers had been all too desirous to exhibit the algebra.
Maybe it actually was one large mistake, one other La La Land/Moonlight debacle for the ages. However, actually, are we going to offer the Recording Academy that a lot credit score? After Beck beat Beyoncé in 2015? We’re nicely previous poll mishaps, my mates.
Nonetheless, there was a minimum of one particular person current on the ceremony was keen to observe Types overtake the competitors: The so-called grandma superfan who offered him with the award. (Admittedly, they did a really cute little shuffle-dance after they hugged.)
However the overarching style of the night’s outcomes was bitter. The phrases “ROBBED” and “DURING BLACK HISTORY MONTH,” each in all caps, trended on Twitter mere minutes after the Album of the Yr announcement. And when requested if he, too, anticipated a Beyoncé win tonight, Types demurred: “You by no means know with these items. I don’t suppose you’ll be able to take a look at any of the nominees and never really feel like they’re deserving. After I take a look at this class, it’s all individuals who have impressed me at completely different occasions, so it’s not like—y’know, you’d perceive anybody successful. And yeah, I’m actually grateful that they selected us.”
There’s excellent news for individuals who will nonetheless be seething when the morning comes: Beyoncé is going on tour, and her tickets are formally on presale. Ticketmaster higher be prepared this time.
