MARILYN MANSON AXED FROM KANYE WEST GRAMMY NOMINATION

Kanye West collaborator Marilyn Manson has been stripped of a Grammy nomination. After not being listed as a songwriter for “Jail” on the most updated version of Donda, Complex reports his bid was removed. 

The Academy reported the decision was not made in response to backlash from physical abuse allegations. Actresses Esmé Bianco and Evan Rachel Wood have made headlines with claims of sex abuse and coercion.

Manson could still take home a Grammy for his contributions to “Jail Pt. 2,” as Kanye’s album is nominated for Album of the Year.

After facing backlash over his nominations in the first place, Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr. said Manson’s disturbing past does not disqualify him from consideration. The Wrap quoted Mason saying, “We won’t restrict the people who can submit their material for consideration.”

Whether Kanye will take home more awards, or if Manson will receive his first is unclear. However, it seems the Academy will not factor in Marilyn Manson’s controversial history when it comes to nominations.

Until the next time it drips…
