Hov may have taken home a ‘sippy cup’ for baby Blue, but Kanye decided to just stay home with his girls! The rapper was up for two Grammys on Jan. 26, but skipped it for Kim!

Kanye West: Why He Skipped The Grammys
With “New Slaves” nominated for Best Rap Song and Yeezus nominated for Best Rap Album, we were hoping that Kanye, 36, would show up at Staples Center on Jan. 26, even just to support his fellow musicians — his BFF Jay Z performed! However, he decided to lay low for the biggest night in music.
He was spotted on the phone looking super casual on the balcony at the Kardashians’ family getaway home during the day, while his fellow musically-talented friends dressed to the nines.
Kanye Angry Over Only 2 Nominations
However, while he was with his family, many think he skipped the show because of his two noms — he thought he deserved more.
During his concert in Pheonix, Arizona on Dec. 10, just five days after the Grammy nominations were announced, Kanye went off on the news that he only landed two noms.
“They try to trivialize my words and try to make it seem like my importance as a musician is less important than what it is. Now I’m 36-years-old and I have 21 Grammys. That’s the most Grammys of any 36-year-old,” he said at the show. “Out of all those 21 Grammys, I’ve never won a Grammy against a white artist. So, when the Grammy nominations come out and Yeezus is the Top one or two albums on every single list, but only gets two nominations from the Grammys. What are they trying to say? Do they think that I wouldn’t notice? Do they think that some way that I don’t have the power to completely diminish all of their credibility at this moment…People come to me and they congratulate me on those two nominations. F–k those nominations.”
So HollwoodLifers — are you surprised that Kanye stayed in with Kim? Do you think he should have gone to the Grammys?
