Lorde Thinks It's Crazy She's The Only Woman Nominated For Album of the Year at the Grammys

Lorde Thinks It's Crazy She's The Only Woman Nominated For Album of the Year at the Grammys

When you take a first look at the nominations for the 2018 Grammys, you’ll notice that Lorde is the only woman nominated for Record of the Year.

She’s actually proud of that too, she revealed to Billboard in this week’s issue.

“It was the middle of the night, and I was aware that the nominations were coming out, and I’d done that thing where I’d convinced myself that [I wouldn’t be nominated],” she remembers about hearing about her nomination. “I was getting over it in my mind, like, ‘You still made a great record.’”

Lorde also says that while she psyched herself out that she wouldn’t get any, she did, and it changed her outlook: “And then a friend found me and told me, and we were the only people in this room who knew. It was such a special moment.”

“It’s crazy I’m the only woman in my category, and I feel very proud of that,” she says. “I’m wearing that mantle for sure.”

Lorde adds, “But I’m also stoked that I’m in there with four incredible artists of color — it’s a big moment for the Grammys. It’s exciting when these institutions move in the right way. To me, that is a huge victory.”

Lorde Is No Longer Performing Her Concert in Israel

The 31-year-old “Green Light” singer was asked to “join the artistic boycott of Israel” by pulling out of her upcoming performance in Tel Aviv on June 5, 2018.

“Noted! Been speaking w many people about this and considering all options. Thank u for educating me i am learning all the time too,” she wrote on Twitter after receiving an impassioned letter asking her to reconsider.

“Playing in Tel Aviv will be seen as giving support to the policies of the Israeli government, even if you make no comment on the political situation,” the letter reads.

“Today, millions of people stand opposed to the Israeli government’s policies of oppression, ethnic cleansing, human rights violations, occupation and apartheid. As part of this struggle, we believe that an economic, intellectual and artistic boycott is an effective way of speaking out against these crimes. This worked very effectively against apartheid in South Africa, and we hope it can work again.”

Other artists who have recently protested by boycott include Brian Eno and Pink Floyd‘s Roger Waters, according to Haaretz.
