Taylor Swift and her songs have been international crushes for a long time now. The 29-year-old has won a lot of awards for her songs, including the Grammy Award. So, fans were a little disappointed when they heard that their favourite singer, Swift, will not be attending the Grammys his year.
The singer whose album Reputation has been nominated in the category of Best Pop Vocal Album will not be seen at the award ceremony which will take place later this month. However, the reason for this is not any drama between the Recording Academy and the singer. The reason Swift will not attending the Grammy award ceremony is that she will be shooting in London.
Earlier, there were speculations that the Grammy-winning singer will not be attending the ceremony because she will be attending the BAFTAs with her significant other, Joe Alywn instead since the two events clash with each other. But US weekly rejected this and said that she will be in London filming for ‘Cats’.
Cats is an upcoming British-American fantasy musical film which is directed by Tom Hooper. The plot of the film is – “comedy film based on the musical of the same name, which in turn was based on Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot.” The film stars Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, and Ian McKellen. The film is produced by Tom Hooper, Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, and Debra Hayward. The music is directed by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Another speculation was that the singer won’t be attending due to her disagreement with the Grammy producers. The problem was “due to a disagreement with Grammy producers over which songs she would perform.”
Taylor Swift is not the only artist who won’t be attending the Grammy Award ceremony this year. Reportedly, Ariana Grande will also not be attending the ceremony. the reason for this is some ongoing tiff between The Recording Academy and Ariana Grande. According to some sources – “Thank U, Next” singer felt insulted after producers initially refused to allow her to perform “7 Rings“.
The singer has been nominated for her song ‘Sweetener’ and her album ‘God Is A Woman‘. Singers who are nominated for the award are supposed to perform the song they are nominated for. Grande’s 7 Rings just came out recently could not be nominated for the Grammy Awards this year.
This year, Taylor Swift was only nominated for one category in the Grammy’s. Usually, she gets nominated in numerous categories. This made fans upset. We hope to see Taylor and Ariana at the Grammy Award‘s next year.
