Grammys Head Honcho Neil Portnow Doesn't Think There's A 'Problem With Race At All' Following Beyoncé Snub

Neil Portnow

The last black artist to win Album of the Year at the Grammys was Herbie Hancock in 2008, and the last black woman was Lauryn Hill in 1999.

But still — the President of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, Neil Portnow, doesn't think "there's a race problem at all" with the voting system.

In an interview with Pitchfork this week following Beyoncé's controversial snub and boycotts from artists like Frank Ocean, Portnow commented on the award show's apparent shut-out of minority artists.

As Jhené Aiko once said: "You gotta eat the booty like groceries."

Those words were never more applicable than on Monday morning when Nicki Minaj got into a lengthy discussion about the art of analingus on The Breakfast Club.

However, the Anaconda singer actually wasn't even the one who brought ass-eating up in the first place… because that honor goes to host Charlamagne tha God!

Nicki stopped by the Power 105 talk show to discuss everything from her recent run-in with Lauryn Hill to her newly "postponed" Freeform sitcom Nicki — and there's no buts about it… Nicki's got questions!

The Grammys were pretty great this year with several memorable performances.

One act that we were hoping to see though was the rumored pairing of Lauryn Hill and The Weeknd!

Unfortunately, we learned shortly after the award show from Hill's rep that the Grammys were the ones that prematurely announced the performance as it was never a sure thing and was supposed to be a surprise.

Well in a classic case of he-said/she-said, the Recording Academy President Neil Portnow talked a bit about the award show's hiccups and responded to Lauryn's rep's statements on Monday evening by saying it wasn't "accurate."

Portnow went on to say:

"We had rehearsals off-site that she didn't attend, but we had a dress rehearsal onstage that she did attend. When it came to showtime, we were told she was late, three minutes to seven minutes out, but she didn't make it."

Well the Ready or Not singer's people weren't going to let that fly as they released another statement on Wednesday disagreeing with Neil, saying:

We're Feeling Good About Lauryn Hill's Nina Simone Cover! Listen HERE!

Filed under: Music MinuteUsherLauryn HillMary J. BligeCommon

Listen to Lauryn Hill flawlessly cover Nina Simone's 'Feeling Good'.

Nina Simone's classic song Feeling Good has been covered too many times to count.

Whether by hopeful reality competition contestants, or celebs who've already made names for themselves, many of these renditions have been great. But none of them have ever really been able to capture the same tone and feeling of the late great singer.

That is, until Lauryn Hill.

[ Video: Country Star Canaan Smith Surprises This Couple! ]

The 40-year-old musician covered the iconic track as a part of an upcoming tribute album entitled Nina Revisited.

Her voice just glides effortlessly over the notes, but the emotion in her words is totally tangible! And when she lets loose with the riffs, you can really tell the feeling is genuine, rather than just an effort to sound pretty or precisely mimic Nina's notes.

Ch-ch-check out her FAB version (below)!
