Harry Styles - Harry’s House

This is just plain rude and disrespectful.

It's not even really about Harry. The Grammys are still pulling the same shit as they did all throughout the last decade, even though they promised that they'd changed. Gonna quote myself from a few years back and add Renaissance losing to Harry's House to the list.

The Grammys tend to give black artists, those with commercial success and critical acclaim, the Rap, R&B or Urban Contemporary (whatever the fuck that means) awards then fuck them over in the Album of the Year category (i.e. the main one), giving the awards to albums that aren't generally as well regarded. In the last six ceremonies:

Channel Orange by Frank Ocean lost to Babel by Mumford and Sons
Good Kid Mad City by Kendrick lost to Random Access Memories by Daft Punk
Self Titled by Beyoncé lost to Morning Phase by Beck
To Pimp A Butterfly by Kendrick lost to 1989 by Taylor
Lemonade by Beyoncé lost to fucking 25 by Adele
DAMN by Kendrick lost to 24K Magic

It can't happen this many times in a row and still be a coincidence
 
I can’t with him trying to insist that he’s not completely contrived by saying ‘I don’t think any of us sit in the studio making decisions on what is going to get us one of these.’

Yea this was more disingenuous than any of his queer baiting. I can potentially believe that when it comes to the queer baiting stuff he has good intentions that he simply isn't smart enough to understand the repercussions of. But not thinking of the Grammy committee when he was recording his album? Take a seat, Harold.
 
And for the record, it's not even that this album is Bad. It's not. It's pleasant enough. But stacked against the likes of RENAISSANCE, or even Un Verano Sin Ti, I just...don't see how it measures up at all.

This.

No other album had the cultural impact that Renaissance and Un Verano Sin Tí had in the last year. Especially Renaissance. Everything project Beyoncé puts out always shifts the culture. I don't care if she's the most awarded artist in Grammy's history, she deserved AOTY in 2015, 2017 and 2023 and will probably deserve it the next time she's nominated.

I know this isn't the Renny thread, but the fact that one of those anonymous Grammy voters that Variety interviews used this as a negative?

I loved Harry's debut, found Fine Line's singles fine enough and enjoyed the singles from this prior to them becoming overplayed (I feel the same about About Damn Time in all fairness). But there is no way that he deserves album of the year. As a 23 year old, the album has certainly been very present in the straight girl convent of my life, and the music has been all over TikTok along with his shows. But it had nowhere near the impact Renny did.

I also know it shouldn't be about this... but its the climate the Grammys have created - he hasn't even remotely paid his dues to be considered for such a prestigious award. Yes, Fearless won in 2008 but Taylor had ground her guitar into the ground until it was wood shavings to get there, and it was also a lot more significant than this album. Same goes for Miseducation, which may be closer to comparing for this album since they both came from groups... but that album was far and out one of the most defining albums ever released.

I don't know. I'm rambling and 3 glasses of wine in. But none of this makes sense.
 
I'm hoping so hard he gets tangled in some controversy, anything really, so the draggings a la Timberlake can start to flood out of every major publication. Pls gay Jesus punish this straight man.

I don’t browse the Harry Styles thread but thought I would today, just to see if others agree that he didn’t deserve album of the year.

Having said that, this comment is enough to yikes me to a full 180 and never come back here.
 
Girl, I'd tell you to just say you hate Beyoncé and go, but from your post history...






...it would appear you already have, so maybe you should just go.

Anyway, more bullying, I say! Bully all the Harry Styles stans whose connection to the queer community begins and ends with writing anatomically incorrect anal sex fan fiction between their fave and Louis Tomlinson! Bully all Beyoncé dissenters!

Renaissance was inspired by Disco? Disco has more nuance (Disco doesn't have any nuance whatsoever)? The fuck? How could anyone possibly think these things?

I'll never understand why people announce that things like this make them want to leave

It's always regarding some non-event like Harry Styles/Jesy Nelson/etc like why would you
 
She/Her/Queen
That post is the WORSE than what I saw in the Madonna thread when she announced the tour. These people really outdid themselves round here.

Come on Harry, we want to say good night to you! And your career.

Honestly I got the impression from his lil accepty-weccy that he knew he was going to get the backlash and mentally checked out before he opened his mouth. I saw that same "going through the motions I just want to go home and sleep" look in his eyes that I see every time I look in the mirror at work. I don't think he actually believes that "things like this never happen to people like me," but I also think he's privileged enough that he figured he could just go on autopilot and still have a career in the morning.
