It looks like Taylor Swift’s star power is quickly fading. Even though the chart topper’s latest album Reputation has been hyped as the record of the year by fans, Taylor failed to pick up any 2018 Grammy nominations. As a matter of fact, this has been the first time that she has been shut out altogether.
According to reports, Taylor Swift’s album Reputation failed to garner any nominations because of its release date. Yet, two of her singles, Look What You Made Me Do and Ready For It were released well before the September 30 cut-off date for the Grammys. Unfortunately though, both songs failed to pick up any nominations.
Although, she did receive two minor nominations that she helped work on: for writing the song Better Man for country band Little Big Town and for writing I Don’t Wanna Live Forever, which is the song she worked on with Zayn Malik for the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack. Still, for many of Taylor’s fans it’s surprising that her two singles off of her Reputation album were ignored, considering the fact that they have both been heavily played on radio stations everywhere.
With that being said, there’s a strong possibility that Taylor Swift won’t even attend the Grammy Awards now, especially now that she really doesn’t have a reason to be there. Without any awards to pick up, there’s no reason for her to sit in the audience and pretend that she’s happy to see other musicians pick up their accolades. Many critics know that Taylor likes to be the most important person in the room. She doesn’t want to be ignored and certainly overshadowed.
Of course, there’s very little chance that Taylor Swift will say anything about this Grammys snub. As a matter of fact, many of Taylor’s fans have noticed that she hasn’t been granting many interviews lately. It’s almost as if she’s taken a page out of Beyonce’s book and expects her music and all of her fans to do the talking for her. But then again, everyone knows that Taylor Swift is no Queen Bey. Sure, Taylor has her army of dedicated fans, but they are nothing like Beyonce’s beehive. Some would even take a bullet for their Queen if they had to.
