Billboard did an article addressing how Lil Nas X got a nomination for AOY. To no surprise to me, it was another attempt by the Grammys to be diverse. I don't get why they always try to show they are diverse. How about nominating the people who deserve it; in the correct categories, and it will probably be diverse most years.
Lil Nas X and his team are really using his "coming out" moment to garner nominations. If he only was a straight Black male, then he probably would have been overlooked. But, the Grammy gets to market to the LGBTQ community with him showing up.
Lil Nas X better step his cookies up. I am sure he will win a Grammy and then he will have expectations. That is usually when the gimmicks crumble.
Santana is a better artist, especially if we are talking rap. But, I guess he can't serve straight tease to the little girls the way Lil Nas X can.
