Frank Ocean has blasted Taylor Swift's 2016 Grammy Awards win as he fired back at the Grammy bosses who criticized his performance on the show in 2013.
The 29-year-old singer admitted his appearance at the annual awards bash three years ago was "absolute s**t" but insisted "the most faulty" TV moment ever was, in fact, seeing Taylor's LP scoop the prestigious Album of the Year gong over Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly last year.
Writing in a post on Tumblr on Saturday night after producer Ken Ehrlich and writer David Wild blasted him for refusing to submit his 2016 LP Blonde for consideration in the category this year, he said: "Winning a TV award doesn't christen me successful. Yea yea my 2013 performance at the Grammys was absolute s**t. Technical difficulties, blah blah.
"F**k that performance though. You think that's why I kept my work out of the Grammy process this year? Don't you think I would've wanted to play the show to 'redeem' myself if I felt that way?
He went on: "I've actually been tuning into CBS around this time of year for a while to see who gets the top honour and you know what's really not 'great TV' guys? '1989' getting album of the year over To Pimp A Butterfly. Hands down one of the most 'faulty' TV moments I've seen.(sic)"
Frank added that the ceremony puts millions of people "to sleep" and they're being forced to turn to YouTube to watch their favourite performers from the night.
