    Hmm, maybe he didn’t show up because he knows he stole the damn song from Jase Harley. Please go listen to American Pharoah and tell me it’s just a coincidence. Appalling. I’ve lost all respect for that man. Way to be a horrible human, that Grammy is not yours.

    that song was bad. I guarantee noone would have cared about this song if it weren't for the video. High social impact and controversy of a music video does not make the song attached to it great.

    Good job childish Gambino... You better shit to do then sit around and wait over an award. That to me is childish.

    Music is so shit today thanks to 'artists' like Childish Gambino. Also its HILARIOUS that rich black people STILL have beefs with each other. I thought people said poverty was the cause of ghetto black behavior but apparently not when you have so many rich blacks still behaving like your average ghetto thug.

    For everyone thinking he didn’t care enough to show up, you are forgetting he does have other projects going on. Unless you see him live-streaming watching the Grammys home in his pjs, don’t make assumptions. He is not only involved in music.

    Honestly it wasn’t that great of a song. I mean it only won cause of the recent “white washing” of the award season so this is the only reason that this song won best music video and song of the year.

    Bless shawn ❤️he really deserved it , but this year he got a nom, next year he'll win it. tbh I'm not that surprised "this is America" won and we've got to remember this category is to recognise songwriters.

    • Flor Sapriza
      Flor Sapriza 7 months ago +2

      Jsalcedo23 @Jsalsedo23 did you hear "In My Blood", it's not a simple pop song, it's a really beautiful song, very personal and so relatable for a lot of people. And it helped lots of people. I'm not saying "This is America" isn't a good song, I'm just saying Shawn deserved that award. And please don't say we wanted him to win because he's cute.

    • Joslyn Marqs
      Joslyn Marqs 7 months ago +1

      Jsalcedo23 that's. Exactly. Wht. I'm. Trying to say??? Tf? I JUST said " this category is to recognise songwriters" and this is America is a meaningful song but if I'm being honest I'm not convinced because if u take it solely for the lyrics it doesn't hv much of the impact as it is with the music deserves record of the year for sure don't know about song of the year. This also doesn't mean u have to disregard all the other talented nominees (not just Shawn). We've just got to trust the judges. And I'm saying he deserves it because he works soo hard , he's not just a pretty face, if only you knew.
      Edit: I'm also not "annoyed" Shawn didn't win, we r just as proud of him for getting a nom. And at no point in my initial comment did I say anything about his looks.😴

    • PopOff!
      PopOff! 7 months ago +1

      Eh? Shawn arrived on his looks. Just like ever other SM star looks first talent second. You never see an "ugly" social media superstars become famous pop stars. Not to discredit what talent he or may or may not have. I just know it is looks first talent later.
      As to Gambino winning SOTY my opinion was a political statement by the Grammys... the song is meh- nay NOTHING without the video really. If there had been no video nobody would be talking about this song. So it winning for songwriting is a miss for me. But The Grammys are always off base, especially when the get political.

    • Jsalcedo23
      Jsalcedo23 7 months ago +7

      @Andrea Petrova I never said he was talentless nor that I didn't like him, did I?

      That's you putting words in my mouth.

      I'm making the point that there's absolutely no way such a powerfully social conscious song like Donald Glover's loses to a pop song.

      @Jsalcedo23 We get it,you paste this comment everywhere!
      And I get your point but he is not just "cute",you not liking him doesnt make him talentless

      Jsalcedo23 i see your coment everywhere and it really hurts how you think "In My Blood" its a simple pop song, when it talks about anxiety and feelings lots of people can relate, a really beautiful song. And a song that helped me and lot of people, and you don't imagine how it affects me you calling it "a simple pop song" because it isn't.

    • Gabriel Corkill
      Gabriel Corkill 7 months ago +5

      Nah, not really. Gambino actually has a message behind his song

      Jsalcedo23 7 months ago +7

      We get it, you think he’s cute! Doesn’t mean he should win for that reason.
      This is America is a once in a decade type of socially conscious song and on no planet should a simple pop song win over it.
