The 2023 Grammys Is Already Facing Backlash After Leaving Artists Out Of Its In Memoriam Segment
As you know, every year the Grammys does this in memoriam segment honoring those lost over the last year.
This year's included celebs like Olivia Newton-John, Lisa Marie Presley, David Crosby, Irene Cara, Stephen "tWitch" Boss, and Takeoff. It was probably close to three dozen people, in all.
But there were also quite a few names missing, from Aaron Carter to Gangsta Boo — and people are not happy about it:
So... Why was Aaron Carter left out of the memoriam? #GRAMMYs
WOW… #GRAMMYs forgot to include #AaronCarter in their memoriam for artists who have passed… DO BETTER!!!!
Grammys forgot Bernard Wright rip
@RecordingAcad you missed some people in your In Memoriam Trevor Strnad Jeremiah GreenDan McCaffertyAaron CarterBob Nalbandian#GRAMMYs
so the grammys just goin to forget Pnb on their tribute to rappers who past away
Now why I ain’t see Gangsta Boo in this tribute
Gangsta Boo should have been up there
Leaving out Gangsta Boo, one of the pioneers of Southern female rap, from the GRAMMY memoriam segment is a sin and a shame.
Wow they didn’t say RIP to lil keed, or Trouble.
Not at all surprised but still disappointed to not see Jeremiah Green of @modestmouseband in the In Memoriam presentation. #GRAMMYs
People also noted that the segment left out Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters; however, Taylor was actually honored at last year's show.
