It was about transparency.
Just hours after he slammed the Grammys over its voting process, Zayn returned to Twitter on Tuesday night (March 9) to say that his comments were "not personal," but rather about the "need for inclusion." The singer, 28, teed off on the Recording Academy on Tuesday, just five days before the 63rd annual Grammy Awards, writing, "F--- the grammys and everyone associated. Unless you shake hands and send gifts, there's no nomination considerations. Next year I'll send you a basket of confectionary."
Zayn, who has yet to receive a Grammy nomination, either as part of One Direction or for his solo work, appeared to have second thoughts a short time later, returning to Twitter to explain his earlier comments. "My tweet was not personal or about eligibility but was about the need for inclusion and the lack of transparency of the nomination process and the space that creates and allows favoritism, racism, and netwokring politics to influence the voting process," he wrote.
