P!nk is the latest celebrity to join the uprising against the Recording Academy.
While major female artists like Alessia Cara and Rihanna went home with trophies at Sunday night’s Grammys, the vast majority of winners were men. Furthermore, out of all 899 nominees, women only took up 9% of the list.
In response, Recording Academy president Neil Portnow showed no remorse for the artists the organization chose. “It has to begin with… women who have the creativity in their hearts and souls, who want to be musicians, who want to be engineers, producers, and want to be part of the industry on the executive level," he told Variety.
