Grammys: Macklemore Tells Kendrick Lamar It 'Sucks That I Robbed You'

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis cleaned up at the Grammys last night, winning Best New Artist and three awards in the Rap category. But after the ceremony, Macklemore Instagrammed a picture of a text he sent fellow nominee Kendrick Lamar.

 

The text said:

 

You got robbed. I wanted you to win. You should have. It’s weird and sucks that I robbed you. I was going to say that during the speech. Then the music started playing and I froze. Anyway, you know what it is. Congrats on this year and your music. Appreciate you as an artist and a friend. Much love.

 

He also included the caption:

 

My text to Kendrick after the show. He deserved best rap album… I’m honored and completely blown away to win anything much less 4 Grammys. But in that category, he should have won IMO. And that’s taking nothing away from The Heist. Just giving GKMC it’s proper respect.. With that being said, thank you to the fans. You’re the reason we were on that stage tonight. And to play Same Love on that platform was a career highlight. The greatest honor of all. That’s what this is about. Progress and art. Thank you. #grammys

 

Macklemore was referring to Lamar’s critically accalimed debut, Good Kid, m.A.A.d City, which yielded seven nominations for last night’s awards – and won none. “I was gonna say that during the speech,” Mackelmore’s text continues. “Then the music started playing during my speech and I froze. Anyway you know what it is. Congrats on this year and your music.”

 

Still, the night wasn’t a wash for Lamar – his collaboration with Las Vegas rock band Imagine Dragons was one of the best-received performances of the night. The two acts combined their hits – Lamar’s “m.a.a.d. city” and Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive” for an electrifying live mash-up.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis also had a much-buzzed-about performance – their rendition of “Same Love” featured Trombone Shorty, a group marriage performed by Queen Latifah and Madonna singing “Open Your Heart” to the newlyweds.

Next up for both acts: touring overseas, with Lamar playing South Africa, Australia and the Phillipines next month; Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are also slated for a hefty tour of Australia and New Zealand, with dates also booked in China and Japan.
