Hollywood Comedy Actress Tiffany Haddish, Turned Down Pre-Grammys Hosting Award.

American actress Tiffany Haddish was said to have turned down the offer of hosting the pre-Grammys award show after they asked her to cover her expenses.

According to TMZ, Tifanny was offered the hosting for the recording academy pre-show, for just 3-hours, ahead of the main show in January 2021. Still, she was told she wouldn’t get paid.

The actress, who is not ready to run a charity show, turned down the offer after being told she wouldn’t get paid. Her hair, makeup, and wardrobe will also not be covered for the entire 3 hours of hosting.

Tiffany reacting to Grammys offer in an interview with Variety, said:

“I don’t know if this might mean I might not get nominated ever again, but I think it’s disrespectful.
“I was like, ‘The exposure is amazing but I think I have enough. I appreciate you guys asking, and as much as I appreciate the honor of being nominated, that’s not okay.”

The recording academy representative reacted to her comment during the interview, saying:

“The Premiere Ceremony which Haddish was asked to host, is not a CBS program and the ceremony is hosted by the Academy, which is a not-for-profit organization and historically, all hosts, presenters, and performers have traditionally performed without compensation at the said event. “They also stated that “Haddish will not be penalized for rejecting the offer to host the pre-telecast show.”

Tiffany later responded, saying: “How many other people have they done that to? It’s like a guy asking you on a date but telling you that you have to pay for it.”

Tiffany haddish is nominated for best comedy album for Netflix’s black mitzvah 2020, making it the second time she is being set for Grammys this year. She received her first nomination last year for her album the black unicorn.
