Why Lorde Is Boycotting the Grammys

Why Lorde Is Boycotting the Grammys

On Friday, she tweeted an article noting, "Of the 899 people to be nominated for Grammy awards in the past six years, only nine per cent were women".

The 21-year-old singer will not sing on the show and is considering not even attending, even though she was in New York City on Grammy weekend, TMZ reported.

Lorde is no stranger to the Grammy spotlight - she performed her hit-single "Royals" in 2014 for which she won Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year.

Her mum, Sonja Yelich took to Twitter to comment on the issue by circling a paragraph in an article which acknowledged Lorde's achievement and snub in the one sentence.

New Zealand's own Lorde is up for the biggest music award of the year tomorrow, but has been snubbed in another way. The Grammys did, however, approach the "Green Light" singer to perform with other artists as part of a tribute to the late Tom Petty to which Lorde declined.

Lorde is up for the one prize at the ceremony, being held at Madison Square Garden today, for her hit album Melodrama.

Don't mess with mama bear!

Lorde won't perform at the Grammys because she wasn't offered a solo spot, according to United States media reports.

Lorde isn't performing at the Grammys as she wasn't offered a solo spot, unlike fellow nominees in her category - and was instead asked to perform with other artists.

That said, Lorde did perform at another prestigious event.
