The Weeknd is far from happy with the Grammys, and he took to social media to slam them after receiving no nominations.
The Weeknd has well and truly slammed the Grammys.
via: GettyAfter receiving no nominations, the singer went in on the prestigious awards... and he didn't hold back.
Fans have had a huge reaction to his post.
via: GettyAnd with good reason.
If you didn't know, The Weeknd (also known as Abel Tesfaye) is an R&B sensation.
via: Getty ImagesThe Canadian-born singer-songwriter is one of the leading figures in the music industry.
The star broke into the music scene in 2011 with his mixtape, House of Balloons.
via: Getty ImagesEven in the early days, he managed to work with some pretty high profile artists including Drake and Wiz Khalifa, while still finding his feet within the industry. And now he has made it big.
His musical success skyrocketed with his 2015 album, Beauty Behind the Madness.The album brought us the global hit single "Can't Feel My Face," which has drawn in comparison to the likes of Michael Jackson, and hit no 1 on the Billboard chart, and went on to rank as the best song of the year.
His follow-up album, Starboy, also enjoyed critical success.
There's no denying that the star is a hit-maker.
via: Getty ImagesThroughout his career, the star has racked up several Grammy nominations and awards for his work and has even gone on to headline the infamous Coachella Festival, alongside Beyonce and Eminem.
But he has also been in the public eye for his turbulent love life.
via: Getty ImagesThe star was in an on-off relationship with model, Bella Hadid, since the pair linked up in 2015. According to E! News, the pair made it official in May 2015 after hanging out together at Coachella the previous month.
The pair got off to a strong start.
But their relationship quickly hit a rocky patch.
It was the first of many hurdles for the famous pair...
via: Getty ImagesAnd in February 2016, the couple appeared to be back on when they hit the Grammys red carpet together, and then the following month, looked extremely loved-up as they posed for snaps at the Daily Front Row’s Fashion Los Angeles Awards. But it wasn't to be after the couple were reported to have split again shortly afterward.
The pair had an awkward post-breakup reunion on the Victoria's Secret runway stage.
via: Getty ImagesJust 2 weeks after their breakup, The Weeknd released his highly acclaimed album, Starboy, and took to the stage at the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, where his ex happened to be strutting her stuff. When asked about the reunion, Bella claimed that it wasn't awkward at all: “He is my best friend, and I am excited because I am walking during his performance."
This time, the split was serious...
via: Getty ImagesThe Weeknd even moved on, coupling up with Singer, Selena Gomez. But it didn't take long for the R&B star and Bella to get on friendly terms again when in late-2017, the singer was pictured leaving Bella's apartment.
Throughout 2018, the couple were rumored to be back on.
After a number of strong months, the couple called it quits...again.
And in true post-breakup style, The Weekend showcased a drastic makeover.
via: Getty ImagesIn a rare red carpet appearance, the R&B powerhouse attended the premiere of his feature film debut, Uncut Gems, at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.
But the star was looking notably different...
via: Getty ImagesThe "I Feel It Coming" singer made quite a few changes to his signature look, which has hardly changed over the years - opting to trade his usual full-grown beard for a mustache and swapping out his hairdo completely. He still rocked it, of course...
The star teased his latest album over his socials...
And to make things even better...
via: GettyThe singer announced that he’ll be performing at the iconic Super Bowl half-time show next year.
However, it seems he's feeling pretty bummed that he received no Grammy nominations.
via: GettyBecause he well and truly unleashed on Twitter.
Reactions to his response came pouring in...
via: GettyAnd they were very mixed, to say the least.
