Justin Bieber's manager slams Grammys over nomination snub


Justin Bieber's manager has accused members of the Grammy Awards board of making a mistake by failing to nominate the teenage pop star for the 2013 award show.

Bing: 2013 Grammy nominees

The nominees were announced on Wednesday night, with fun., Frank Ocean and the Black Keys leading the pack. Bieber's protegee, Carly Rae Jepsen, picked up two nominations for her hit song "Call Me Maybe," but Bieber didn't receive a single nomination. After the nominees were announced, Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, took to Twitter to criticize the board for failing to include the 18-year-old star, who previously scored two noms at the 2011 ceremony.

In a series of posts, he writes, "First... congrats to Carly Rae Jepsen. Thought u deserved a Best New Artist nom, but proud Call Me Maybe got u 2 noms. So proud of u. Second... this time there won't be any wise words, no excuses, I just plain DISAGREE. The kid (Bieber) deserved it. Grammy board u blew it on this one. The hardest thing to do is transition, keep the train moving. The kid delivered. Huge successful album, sold out tour, and won people over... this time he deserved to be recognized and I don't really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision I don't agree with. So to all those nominated... you do deserve it. You worked hard and u earned it. (I) just feel like so did JB."

The Grammy Awards will be handed out in Los Angeles on February 10.

Well, now the cry-baby manager is not the one who gets to decide who is worthy of an award, and who is not.  Clearly, this "entertainer" is in the later category.  My God someone call a winebulance.  I'm sure Mr. Biggy pants thinks he should get one, but I'm sure every lucky little kid that gets on yOUtUBE and becomes a tenny-bobber heart throb flavor of the year thinks he deserves one.  Grow up and do something that makes you worthy of this award.  Like do many young no-talent see-through kids who maybe might belong on the cover of a "teen" magezine once, if you want something work for it.  If it's good and award worthy-you'll get one, at least nominated.  or, in this case, I think he would be better working at a McDonalds-  No need to cry because you aren't getting your way there.  Well, you can, but no one will care.  Just like they should not care now.  He'll be forgotten in a couple years.  He has no talent.  If the manager is going to put his hands in the air and scream and shout because he isnt getting his way, at least find someone to rob and spend all their money while they basic work themselves sick that is worthy of complaining about them not getting nomimated.  Maybe they should remember, it's not them who gets to decide no matter how \much they whine about it.  Maybe you need to move on you jewish cry baby of a manger.

poor Justin. hopefully he is on his way to the end of his "career". maybe he will wind up like Leif Garret.......or better yet someone find him **** up in an alley somewhere with semen oozing out of every hole in his body.

"Huge successful album" and "Sold out tour" doesn't mean he (or she, dunno what exactly Bieber is) is good. And where the success comes from? Teenage girls with awful music taste. And "won people over" ......... Where that comes from? Are you really connected to the world?!?!?!?
I am glad some real talent got nominated this year, this should be really about the real music, real talent, not bubblegum plastic fake idols made in one day. With him-her-whatever losing 2 years ago and now not nominated, faith on humanity has been restored.

PS: Esperanza Spalding is nominated this year again. U mad bro?
