According to the Grammy president Neil Portnow, female artists in the industry need to step their game up in order to start winning awards. He revealed that women are not showcasing the same creative passion and fearlessness that their counterparts put out.
Neil stated that if women started making it their business to have the creativity in their heart and souls they would be welcomed. Since the airing of the show the hashtag GrammysSoMale has been circulating on Twitter.
Neil mentioned that he has never experienced the brick wall that women have went through in the music industry. Variety magazine has since tried to reach out to the producer of the award show regarding thoughts on what was said, but he stated that he only produces the show and it is not for him to talk about the statement.
