Mariah Carey joins the growing list of artists speaking out against the Grammy Awards.
In the latest issue of V magazine, Mariah reveals what changed her perception of the institution over the course of her career.
“In the music business, if you care about the Grammys and submitting your stuff before a certain time frame, you want a single out in the summer. And then you want to have a record [out] before the Grammys [consideration] deadline, which has changed. Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn,”she said, referencing the iconic line from the film Gone With the Wind.
“I mean, I have five Grammys. That’s cute. There’s people that have been doing this half the time that have twice as many,” Mariah continued. “I won’t two Grammys the first year I started, but after that, [the Grammys] are like, ‘We don’t go with the people that are selling a lot of records and are popular; we’re gonna go the opposite way.'”
