Omarion could have been mistaken to Yeezus himself after pulling a Kanye West once he realized his song, ‘Post To Be,’ didn’t get a Grammy nomination. O called his track one of the best R&B songs in history, before claiming he’s ‘destined’ for Grammy glory. See the tweets!
No, it wasn’t Kanye West, 38, putting the 2016 Grammy Nominations on blast. It was Omarion, 30, who was livid that his collaboration with Chris Brown, 26, and Jhene Aiko, 27, didn’t get a single acknowledgement. With nominations going to The Weeknd, 25, Taylor Swift, 25 and everyone else, O was not happy with this snubbing!
After the nominees for the Grammys were released on Dec. 7, Omarion went off when he saw his song wasn’t on the award show’s list. “‘Post To Be’ is one of the greatest R&B collaborations ever,” he wrote on his twitter feed. From there, things went a little cray.
“[Chris Brown] Jehene, and myself have been in the game [for over ten years],” he continued. “Even though people act like it’s easy to make a hit (and it’s not.)” While Omarion wasn’t looking to get all the Grammy nods, he just wanted to be “acknowledged by the game.” While that sentiment makes sense – every artist wants to feel validated — Omarion kind of went off the rails.
“The odds have always been against me,” he said, adding that he “constantly prove(s) you wrong. I’ll consistently do great things and you will have to celebrate me.” Uh, okay. You mad, bro? O says he’s not, saying “this isn’t an ‘I’m upset’ (Post To Be) rant.'” Sure could have fooled us, O. Omarion said that despite getting ignored this year, “I’ll be back. Have my Grammy’s ready.”
Omarion said that he was “destined” and “chosen” for success, and that his “moment is coming. Trust.” He then seemed to get into arguments with a few twitter fans, possibly comparing himself to Jesus. Uh, yikes. In the end, O decided to end his rant by writing, “Congratulations to all the nominees! Enjoy this milestone.”
What do you think about Omarion’s rant, HollywoodLifers? Do you think he should have gotten a nomination?
