Justin Bieber's name was not evident in the list of Grammy Award nominations announced last week and now the 18-year-old Canadian crooner is speaking up about it.
Bieber, who recently performed on Z100 radio station's The Jingle Ball Tour, thanked his fans during a recent interview with the radio station.
"Thank you to all of my beautiful fans out there. I don't need a Grammy to have your love," Bieber told his fans during the Z100 interview. "You guys are still so incredible."
The singer took to Twitter to reiterate his comments.
"I meant what I said at the end. Finally answered about the Grammys snub," Bieber tweeted. "I got you guys. That is all I need. I'm all good."
After the announcement for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards nominations list revealed that Bieber would not be accepting any of the coveted awards in 2013, his manager took to Twitter to disagree with the board that came up with the nominations.
"I just plain DISAGREE. The kid deserved it. Grammy board [you] blew it on this one," Braun tweeted last Wednesday. "The hardest thing to do is transition, keep the train moving."
Braun went on to outline the accomplishments of the 18-year-old singer who released his third album "Believe" in 2012 along with a sold out tour.
"The kid delivered. Huge successful album, sold out tour, and won people over," Braun tweeted. "...This time he deserved to be recognized and I don't really have any kind, nice, positive things to say about a decision I don't agree with."
After his rant, Bieber's manager made sure to tweet a positive message to the singer's fans.
"To his fans...looks like we get to stay the underdog a little longer. #BRINGIT," Braun tweeted. "I got a lot more I can say but for now....I'm gonna leave it at that. Congrats to all those who got nominated including our own CRJ."
