In a recent interview Nicki Minaj implied there were behind the scenes forces keeping her from receiving any Grammy nominations this year...
Nicki tells the Associated Press,
"I think that the Grammys had a different reason [for not nominating me] that I do not want to discuss. And that's just between me and them. But I respect their organization and I'll get a Grammy eventually. I'm not worried about it."
"I've gotten tons of awards and I believe when it's my time to get a Grammy, I'll get a Grammy."
