Grammys remove Taylor Swift as a nominee for Olivia Rodrigo's 'Sour'

“deja vu,” one of the biggest hits on Sour, includes an interpolation of Taylor Swift's “Cruel Summer.” That shouldn't be enough to have Taylor be a nominee for Album of the Year for Sour. The Recording Academy agrees.

Why didn't they sort this our PRIOR to the nominations being released though :peasants_taylor_swift_walking_away_bye_goodbye:

Sour will probably win Album of the Year ngl. Why else would they make this move? 

From Billboard:


When the Grammy nominations were announced on Nov. 23, Taylor Swift, Jack Antonoff and St. Vincent were listed as album of the year nominees for their role as songwriters on Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour. That raised some eyebrows because those three songwriters weren’t actively involved in the creation of Sour. It’s simply a case that Rodrigo and her producer and frequent collaborator, Daniel Nigro, interpolated an old song of theirs.

The Recording Academy made an update on its site on Sunday (Dec. 5) which indicates that it has withdrawn the nominations for Sour for Swift, Antonoff and St. Vincent (Annie Clark).


Here’s an Academy statement on the subject: “During the submission process, the Academy received credits from the label for the track ‘deju vu.’ Last week, we received the correct credits from the label that recognize Annie Clark, Jack Antonoff and Taylor Swift as songwriters of an interpolation on the track, ‘deja vu.’ In keeping with current Grammy guidelines, as songwriters of an interpolated track, Clark, Antonoff and Swift are not nominees in the album of the year category for Sour. Antonoff and Swift are nominated in the category for Swift’s album, evermore.”

It’s so funny to me how people get so pressed over anything that Taylor does. Like people get legitimately pressed at her when she hasn’t done anything except stand up for herself? Just cause she won’t sit down and take it, a bunch of crusty old gays want to come for her online? Lol 

Whether you like it or not, no one is doing it like her. No one. Stayed pressed.
