Justin Bieber's Manager Goes on Twitter Rant About Grammy Snub

Mashable

While viral sensation Carly Rae Jepsen basked in the glory of her two Grammy nominations late Wednesday night, her record label's founder and Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun used Twitter to rant about Bieber not earning any nominations.

Braun congratulated Jepsen in a tweet before unleashing a series of tweets that scolded the Recording Academy for snubbing Bieber: "Grammy board u blew it," he said in one.

The Twitter rant, which garnered tens of thousands of retweets and favorites, came after the full list of nominees for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards were revealed Wednesday. Bieber previously earned nominations (Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Album) for the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards.

Bieber, who just surpassed 31 million followers on Twitter, seemingly addressed the snub Thursday:

His fourth album, Believe, came out in June and reached number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 albums chart, while the songs "Boyfriend" and "As Long As You Love Me" both peaked in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

Should Bieber have been nominated for the 2013 Grammys, which take place Feb. 10?
