LOS ANGELES — Chris Brown might have earned 15 Grammy nominations in his profession, however the singer is despondent with the nominations for this year’s awards.

The 26-year-old singer took to Twitter to call out on the award show. “#GRAMMY? This is probably the main reason I love being free to create any kind of music I want,” he wrote the first tweet.

“Too many people kiss ass and work less,” Brown wrote. The “Loyal” hitmaker posted a series of tweets doubting the nomination process. “The awards used to mean something.

Now it’s about likes, and memes,” he posted. Grammy nominations were announced in early December. Brown earned a nomination for his collaboration with Lil’ Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Drake for the song “Only,” but did not receive a nod for anything on his latest album “Royality”. The singer won the Grammy for best R&B album in 2012.

Peter, who identifies himself as a homosexual, shares that he has been legally denied to marry a man of his choice.

Yubalaya Chair Sabin Singh highlighted the need of support from media and civil society to address the issue of gender identity and sexual minorities regarding same-sex marriage law.
