Where was Kanye West on Grammy night as his name was called for award after award?
Jay-Z had to accept without his cohort as their N****s in Paris won for best rap performance and best rap song. And West was also a winner in the rap/sung collaboration category for No Church in the Wild, by Jay-Z & Kanye West featuring Frank Ocean and The-Dream.
Both Jay-Z and Kanye have objected to the fact that rap artists are overlooked in major categories. And Kanye said in December that he would be boycotting the show again this year.
Jay-Z, who was spotted sipping wine in his front row seat at the Staples Center, showed up this year with wife Beyonce, and he performed his new Suit & Tie song with Justin Timberlake.
But Kanye, 35, was miles away in Rio de Janeiro with Kim Kardashian.
On Saturday, Kim tweeted: "Good morning Brazil!!!" The lovebirds were snapped at the Christ the Redeemer statue, striking their own (non-red-carpet) pose.
