Candy Tv Celebrity Gist: Grammy Defends Itself After Claims They Cut-Off Drake's Acceptance Speech

The Grammy Awards team has recently defended themselves from the ongoing trend which proposed they cut-off drake’s acceptance speech

In defendant of that, Grammy insisted that Drake had already finished his acceptance speech when they cut it short

The Hotline Bling hitmaker – whose track God’s Plan won the Best Rap Song prize – used his moment in the spotlight to actually play down the importance of award shows, before he was cut off by organisers on Sunday night.

However, a Grammys source told the Hollywood Reporter: “Drake took a natural pause in his speech, which led producers to believe he was finished so they went to commercial.

“Since it seemed as if he had more to say, Grammy producers spoke with Drake immediately following his acceptance speech and offered him the opportunity to complete his speech.

“Drake stated that he was actually finished with his speech and happy.”

The comment comes after Drake – who has previously criticised the ceremony for categorising Hotline Bling as a rap song – said: “We play in an opinion-based sport, not a factual-based sport.

“The point is, you’ve already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word, if you’re a hero in your hometown Drake said.

“Look, if there’s people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain and snow, spending money to buy tickets to your shows, you don’t need this right here. You already won.”

Although the 32-year-old star’s speech was cut off, he won a lot of support from his words, including from Ariana Grande, who, like Drake, had turned down an invitation to perform at the event

The 7 Rings singer – who had accused producers of stifling her creativity – opted not to attend the ceremony but appeared to be tuning in at home as she tweeted, but then swiftly deleted: “Beautifully said @Drake.”
