Childish Gambino Wins 3 Grammys – no show at Grammy Awards

The Grammy awards had some notable absences last night including Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year winner – Childish Gambino (also known as the talented Donald Glover) – who also reportedly declined the invitation to perform at the Grammys.

 

Ariana Grande – another no show

Ariana also boycotted the awards last night, reportedly after having a falling out with the producer of the awards ceremony as they clashed over which songs Ariana could perform. Grande did not let this stop her from trolling the awards in spectacular fashion, much to the delight of her fans which she posted this picture of the gown she would’ve worn to the awards.
