Nicki Minaj’s Manager Calls Grammy Snub ‘Bulls—‘

Not only was Justin Bieber shockingly shut out for Grammy Awards nominations, but his ‘Beauty and a Beat’ co-star Nicki Minaj was no where to be found on the nominations list, as well. Cortez Bryant, who co-manages the Young Money starlet, wasn’t happy about the snub and voiced his frustration on Twitter.

Bryant congratulated fellow Young Money artists Lil Wayne and Drake, who nabbed three and two nods apiece, respectively, before he blasted the Recording Academy for overlooking Minaj.

“Congrats to @LilTunechi and @Drake and @Hit_Boy on their Grammy Noms butttt……,” he tweeted. “They was on some bulls— for not nominating @NICKIMINAJ.”

The Grammy snub also didn’t go unnoticed by the Barbz (aka her fans). They also expressed their anger about the omission on Twitter (as seen by MTV’s RapFix).

One fan tweeted, “So @NICKIMINAJ isn’t nomminated for any grammy awards….TOTAL B.S.!!” while another was pleased with the oversight. “Hahahaha not a single Grammy nomination for Biever, One direction or Nicki Minaj. Maybe there is hope for mankind after all,” a follower wrote.

Minaj has yet to address the snub, although it must hurt a little that she didn’t get nominated in the Best Rap Album category for ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.’ It was one of the biggest (and polarizing) albums of 2012. So why the snub Grammy voters?

Last year, Minaj was up for three awards including Best Rap Album (‘Pink Friday’) but walked away with nothing. However, she did close out the show with a controversial performance of ‘Roman Holiday,’ which offended Catholic leaders with its excessively religious theme.

The 55th annual Grammy Awards will air live from Nashville on CBS at 8PM ET on Feb. 10.
