How Can Beyoncé Have 32 Grammys When Local Man Doesn’t Like Her Music?
MUSIC POWERHOUSE Beyoncé’s legacy lies in tatters after 37-year-old Waterford man Michael Cassidy expressed extreme confusion at the news the Renaissance singer now holds the record for most Grammy wins.
“But that doesn’t make sense because I’ve said I think she’s not very good,” explained Cassidy, wondering if the Grammys will be in touch with him on the matter or does he have to send an email.
“No, I understand she’s been awarded her 32nd Grammy but I’m just asking why I wasn’t consulted before,” said Cassidy, a marketing executive, in a later call with Grammys HQ.
Not one of the 12,000 voting members of the Recording Academy, Cassidy was still keen to stress that the ultimate arbiter of Beyoncé’s award worthiness is Cassidy himself.
“I’m just saying this is a piss take when you consider that in addition to Beyoncé, there are other musical artists I prefer who also make music therefore they should be the winners,” said Cassidy who hasn’t listened to an album all the way through since Coldplay’s Parachutes.
“And anyway, what is this shite? It’s hardly music?” Cassidy condescended as he pressed play on Beyoncé’s ‘Break My Soul’ and heard a brief advert because he’s not into music enough to fork out for Spotify Premium.
Elsewhere, following Sam Smith’s provocative rendition of Unholy at the Grammys, Cassidy also lamented the simpler, less sexually explicit days of Cardi B’s WAP.
