Five-time Grammy Award winner Mariah Carey says she doesnt care about them. “In the music business, if you care about the Grammys and submitting your stuff before a certain time frame, you want a single out in the summer,” Carey said in an interview with V Magazine. “And then you want to have a record (out) before the Grammys (consideration) deadline, which has changed. Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn,” she said, referencing the iconic line from the film “Gone With the Wind”, reports people.com.
She further said: “I mean, I have five Grammys. That’s cute. There’s people that have been doing this half the time that have twice as many. I won two Grammys the first year I started, but after that, (the Grammys) are like, ‘We don’t go with the people that are selling a lot of records and are popular; we’re gonna go the opposite way’. So, I got screwed out of certain years. I wasn’t bitter about it. I was just like, okay, well, I guess I’m not standing here barefoot onstage singing and trying to go a certain way. I’m just me.”
The “We belong together” hitmaker said that while the music industry is a business, she considers herself an artiste. “I consider myself more of a musician first than a business person, I don’t necessarily think of things that way; it’s music first,” she said.
