Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold shoots down Bruno Mars over Grammy wins

Robin Pecknold, the songwriter and vocalist of Fleet Foxes, has a cheeky pop at Bruno Mars following his sweeping victory at the 2018 Grammys.

Mars won all six awards for which he was nominated.

Pecknold, like many others, wasn’t too happy about it and let people know his feelings in an Instagram story: “Aside from Kendrick / SZA / Jay Z nothing that was nominated was very good in my opinion,” he wrote, adding, ”but to give it all to Toys R Us Gap Band is pretty ridic.”

Pecknold’s views of the Grammys were echoed by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon who made it clear how he felt about the situation: “Absolutely NO offense to Mr Mars, but you absolutely have to be shitting me, while some awesome musicians do win, what is WINNING?”
