Justin Bieber & Kanye West Are Skipping The Grammys

Justin Bieber and Kanye West are skipping the Grammys on February 12th, despite both of them being nominated in major categories.

Justin Bieber is ditching the awards show because he “doesn’t think the Grammys are relevant or representative, especially when it comes to young singers.”

Meanwhile, Kanye West is skipping the show because he needs some personal time to “just chill and decompress.”

Their presence won’t be missed since the Grammys show will still feature an A-list performance lineup with Adele, Bruno Mars, John Legend, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Metallica.

Antonio is 56 years old.
