Music experts say that the real reason Taylor Swift did not go to the Grammys is that they would not guarantee that she wins the song of the year.
Multiple sources have confirmed on page six that the Swift team spoke to show the big fish a few days before the live event and said that Swift would only attend and act if she were to win a great Grammy. But the Swift team was told that the winners are not known by those who plan the show, and that they would not change the rules for it.
“(His team) called and wanted to make sure he would win the Grammy. And although it wasn’t an explicit demand, they were certainly fishing to find out if Taylor was a winner. It was understood in the conversation that if he is not winning, he will not come to the Grammys, “said a source.
Another music source said: “It’s widely known in the industry that (the Swift team) called to find out if he was receiving a Grammy, they didn’t tell him, so it wasn’t. It’s not uncommon (for an artist) to want to know And everyone knows that Taylor loves to win, win, win. ”
However, a Swift spokesman said: “I am on the record: these statements from anonymous and unidentified” sources “are absolutely 100 percent false and ridiculous. She simply did not go to the Grammys. You need to calm down.”
Swift was also nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance. He lost the coveted song of the year to Billie Eilish. There were also rumors that the singer was protesting the show after the executive director of the Recording Academy, Deborah Dugan, alleged that her general counsel had sexually harassed her and that the Grammy votes were manipulated.
Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich, who took a place in the program for Swift in case she decided to go, told Variety that there had been talks with the Swift team. “One of his representatives called and said, specifically, that he wanted to do the show for me. And then it wasn’t confirmed … I’m really not free to investigate why she finally didn’t confirm … but I understood her reasoning, let’s say that, “he said.
