GaGa Spurs Grammy Awards To Change Rules

| Filed under: AwardzLady GaGa


After Lady GaGa was excluded for best new artist at this year's Grammys, the Recording Academy is changing eligibility requirements for next year.

Gagita may have been the most popular new artist of 2009, but because Just Dance was nominated in 2008, she was not eligible for the best new artist category.

"There will be some changes so that particular situation won't repeat itself," said Academy President Neil Portnow.

The new rules will allow previous Grammy nominees to be eligible, as long as they have not released an entire album and they do not take home the prize.

The Recording Academy released the following statement:

"More and more, the first release of a new artist is as a featured artist on someone else's album or the new artist may release a single long before the release of his/her/their entire first album.

By current rules, if the other artist's album or the new artist's single receives a nomination, the new artist may never have the opportunity to compete in the best new artist category. With this change, each artist will have at least one opportunity to enter in this important and highly visible category."

The change was made to ensure the "integrity of The Recording Academy and to be completely impartial in our awards process."

Gagalupe to the rescue!

    FatBoy is stupid enough to believe the Feds didnt make record of the whole Miley thing. By now they have an extensive file on him and are watching closely. One day with out any warning what so ever they will show up on his doorstep.

    Your Hatred for young girl is very disturbing. Very similar to Joran Andreas Petrus van der Sloot.

    It's stupid and pointless. 'New artist' , the category speaks for itself. You can't be a 'newcomer' TWICE no matter what !!!

  11. 11

    Considering the fact that the Best New Artist Grammy is the kiss of death to their career, I wish she would have won it.

  12. 12

    poor gaga..that pic is really unflattering

  13. 13

    that's bullsh*t!!!! F U Perez!

  14. 14

    Ewwww! I can't stand this phony witch!

  15. 15

    What a crybaby. SHE WAS NOT NEW!! get over it.

  16. 16

    very nice! 1st she was channeling Madonna and at times Marilyn Manson, now its Hillary Clinton….

  17. 17

    Is all of this happening because Lady Gaga is pissed she cant win the same Grammy that Christina Aguilera won?

  18. 18

    this started with jennifer hudson not wifey lol
    it shouldnt be changed - youre just not new if youve been nominated before - it makes perfect sense! you are only new once!
    does this mean that you could release a lot of random singles (maybe featured with other people), get nominated for a lot of stuff THEN still be considered new because you finally released an album?!?!

  19. 19

    Okay, fuckwad. Enough with GaGa. She's fucking irrelevant already. Seriously, she didn't get "screwed". How the fuck can she have a song nominated in 2008, the be nominated as "best NEW artist" a year later?!

    It's not getting screwed it's COMMON SENSE. Get a fucking life & stop riding her dick.

  20. 20

    well y would she be included in the best new artist category when she isn't a fucking new artist anymore!!!

    Re: OverPerezHilton – so true! fatboy is pathetic and so is gagme gargoyle

  22. 22

    wowww I had no opinion of her at first but something about the sight of her pisses me off. :S I am a peaceful loving person so this is weird

  23. 23

    She didn't rescue anything. She didn't make the new rule.

    The only other instance I know where someone got screwed out of a nomination for Best New Artist was Whitney Houston. She had a duet with Teddy Pendergrass come out before her album.

  26. 26

    Good God, get rid of that pic already! Looks like she's doing that Pat laugh from SNL…

  27. 27

    They changed the rules because a many different artists NOT BECAUSE OF GAG GAG and its lame anyways…new is new. a year old is not NEW.

  28. 28

    wedidn't get an award so we'll pout and stamp our feet
    stupid bitch
    maybe she didn't win because she's nowhere near new

  29. 29

    GET OVER IT GAG GAG. She is the WORST THING to happen to music kinda like PEREZ is the worst thing to happen to the internet EVER. He would post this since his lips are stuck on gaga's dick.

    I love u madonna. I mean Gaga!

  31. 31

    Umm… Gaga's "The Fame" was released before August 31, 2008 which was the cut-off point for the 2009 Grammys. Therefore, she was not nominated because it was not felt she was one of the best new artists.

    This rule change has probably been circulating for a while now. JHud was the first big name of this generation to experience the cut from the previous rule, Gaga just wasn't a nominated… obviously the Academy felt her music was lacking something.

    In this picture she looks like the mom from Family Guy.

    Gaga wasn't the most popular new artist of 2009, as the post says. Taylor Swift sold the most CDs (like 3.5 million), Susan Boyle sold the second most (around 3.4 million) and Gaga sold around 2 million in 2009. She wasn't nearly the most popular by sales.
