Jay-Z blasts Grammys for never awarding Beyoncé album of the year

The 66th annual Grammy Awards aired live from Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena Sunday night.

“Empire State of Mind” artist JAY-Z received the 2nd annual Dr. Dre Global Impact Award during the awards show to honor his impactful legacy — and brought 12-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter on stage to celebrate. “Thank you very much. I used to say it was a sippy cup for Blue, but Blue’s grown up now she doesn’t take sippy cups,” he began. “And she has her own Grammys.”

The proud father referenced Blue Ivy’s win for Best Music Video for her mom, Beyoncé‘s “Brown Skin Girl.”

He used his acceptance speech at the Grammy Awards to condemn the academy for failing to give his wife Beyonce the best album award, despite her 32 wins in other categories.

“Obviously, it’s subjective because, you know, it’s music and it’s opinion based. But you know, some things, you know, I don’t want to embarrass this young lady, but she has more Grammys than everyone and never won album of the year,” Jay-Z said, as the camera cut to his wife, Beyoncé.

“So even by your own metrics, that doesn’t work. Think about that. The most Grammys; never won album of the year. It doesn’t work,” he said as their daughter Blue Ivy stood beside him.

“Some of you are going to go home tonight and feel like you’ve been robbed. Some of you may get robbed. Some of you don’t belong in the category. All right. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, that was it, no. When I get nervous, I tell the truth,” he said with a laugh.
