And with her nod for “Brown Skin Girl,” 8-year-old Blue Ivy became the youngest person to ever receive a Grammy nomination.

Nominations for the 2021 Grammys were announced by Interim President/CEO Harvey Mason Jr. who wasted no time showing love to the Queen.

When asked why he thinks voters and committee members have had such a high opinion of Bey for so long, he said:

“I would have to imagine it’s because of the level of quality and excellence that she has represented throughout her career. In this particular year, she released a body of work that impressed a lot of voters and a lot of people on the committee.”

Committed to diversity and changing the narrative about the storied Awards show, Mason used his debut to set the tone for years to come.

“This has been a tough year for our industry but I have witnessed, day after day, the incredible resiliency of the music community,” he said via the virtual livestream.

“This year’s nominated recordings are proof that the creative spirit continues to be alive and well, and our nominees are a testament to the passion and perseverance that our community embodies.”

Ice Spice’s Super Bowl Spectacle Goes Up in Flames, Michael Blackson’s Roast Takes Center Stage

Michael Blackson didn’t hold back when expressing his disappointment with Ice Spice‘s performance at Michael Rubin’s Fanatics Super Bowl party. The comedian took to Instagram to share his thoughts, quipping, “Tell the frozen spice girl to stop singing to me; I have a dashiki that’s older than her.” Blackson even posted footage of Spice rapping and twerking, capturing his unimpressed expression, and fans joined in with their own critiques.

“So she’s a stripper with a microphone. Got it,” remarked one hater, while another concurred, “Imagine your music being so trash you have to show your nakedness so we can forget that your music is trash 🗑️.”

Despite the less-than-stellar performance, Ice Spice was among the lineup at Rubin’s event, which also featured performances by Travis Scott and Quavo. The annual tradition leads up to Super Bowl LVIII, where the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers are set to face off. Usher is slated to headline the Halftime Show, with the 49ers entering the game as slight favorites.

In a surprising turn, Ice Spice’s full Super Bowl ad for Starry’s has been unveiled. The ad features Spice getting cozy with the soda brand’s animated mascots until her “ex-boyfriend” tries to win her back. When rejected, the man’s head explosively transforms into a soda fountain. Titled “It’s Time To See Other Sodas,” the ad dropped on February 2 but held no clues about Spice’s real love life, contrary to some gossip sites’ beliefs.

This isn’t Spice’s first venture into food and drink advertising. Before her Super Bowl ad stint, she was seen in Dunkin commercials. Last year, Spice collaborated with Ben Affleck to promote her limited-time signature drink at the coffee chain. The Ice Spice Munchkins Drink’s first ad aired during the VMAs on September 12, featuring Affleck and Spice brainstorming names for the drink in a playful spot with Affleck embracing his Boston accent while Spice plays the straight woman.
