So I am reading the story below and this don’t make no sense. I think everyone knows that the Grammy will never do this again. I think everyone knows that Buju was not going to win while in jail. So why take out a full page ad? I think the money could have gone to something else like….Haiti.
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Gay rights groups angry about a Grammy nomination for jailed Jamaican reggae singer Buju Banton took out a full page advert on Friday, protesting the honoring of an artist they said had “promoted the murder of gay people throughout his career.”
Banton, 36, is up for a best reggae album award for his “Rasta Got Soul” release at the Grammys on Sunday. He is currently in jail in Florida awaiting trial on a cocaine charge and will not be attending the awards show.
