People really weren’t happy about Ed Sheeran’s GRAMMYs win…
 Add to favorites

Ed Sheeran‘s win for ‘Best Pop Solo Performance’ at last night’s 2018 Grammys divided opinion, after he beat off competition from an otherwise all-female shortlist.

Sheeran, who wasn’t in attendance, won the award for his huge hit ‘Shape Of You’ over his competitors Kesha, Kelly Clarkson, Lady Gaga and Pink.

However, there are reports that Sheeran’s victory was booed by some members of the audience, while others took to Twitter to voice their frustration. Many were of the view that the award should have gone to Kesha instead.

“Still confused as to how Ed Sheeran won best pop song over Kesha,” wrote one user. “She literally made a song about overcoming sexual abuse.”

Another added: “Kesha really did go through hell and back to release ‘Praying ‘and get nominated for a Grammy, only to lose to an Ed Sheeran song about how he likes a woman’s body over a Sia sample.”

"Ed Sheeran" is a hell of a way to mispronounce "Kesha."

I guess it’s a good thing Kesha didn’t win over Ed Sheeran, since the music industry doesn’t seem to care about examining its abuses of power

kesha was most likely going to use her winner speech to talk about overcoming her rape, sexual assault, and eating disorder and ed sheeran doesn’t even bother to show up deadass FUCK the grammys

Sheeran also won the award for ‘Best Pop Vocal Album’ for ‘÷’.

Meanwhile, the #MeToo movement once again dominated headlines at the event – with many of the artists attending choosing to wear white roses as a mark of support for victims of sexual harassment and assault.

Janelle Monae also made a powerful speech against sexual abuse as she introduced Kesha‘s performance of ‘Praying’ at the awards ceremony.

“Tonight I am proud to stand in solidarity, not just as an artist, but a young woman with my fellow sisters in this room who make up the music industry,” she began. “Artists, writers, assistants, publicists, CEOs, producers, engineers, and women from all sectors of the business. We are also daughters, wives, mothers, sisters and human beings.
