TDE’s Punch Says It’s Disrespectful SZA Wasn’t Nominated For Artist Of The Year At The VMAs

Punch explained why SZA, who was not nominated for Artist of the Year at the MTV Video Music Awards, did not hit the stage.

“Obviously, she had one of the best years, if not the best year, of any artist at this point,” he told The Hollywood Reporter.

“I don’t see why she wouldn’t be nominated for artist of the year. It just really didn’t make any sense to me. It’s disrespectful,” TDE’s Punch continued.

“And they ended up saying, ‘Okay, well we could do another call’ because there were people on [the call] about logistics for the show who didn’t have anything to do with [the nominations].”

He added, “When we tried to set up the second call, they didn’t want to discuss artist of the year, which to me was really a slap in the face. Why wouldn’t she be nominated for artist of the year? Even with the other artists that were nominated for artist of the year, some of them were even off-cycle.”

He continued saying, “They didn’t have an album out. I mean, no disrespect to them or anybody else; everybody’s great and all of that, but still, you can’t discredit what SOS has done and is currently doing.”

As we previously reported, SZA’s manager cancelled her VMAs performance because MTV didn’t nominate her for ‘Artist Of The Year’.
