       After backlash Alessia Cara defends Grammy win

The 2018 Grammy winners were noticeably male-heavy, and all of the televised awards went to men, except Best New Artist which went to Alessia Cara.

Fans of Cara-including Nick Jonas-were ecstatic on Twitter. "I didn't ask to be submitted either because there are other artists that deserve the acknowledgment".

Some wrote that the award should have gone to R&B singer SZA, who was also nominated in the category alongside Julia Michaels, Khalid, and Lil Uzi Vert.

Cara is up for four nominations, including song of the year and best music video (for Logic's "1-800-273-8255, ' also featuring Khalid) and best pop duo/group performance for her Zedd collab 'Stay".

EPA reverses course, maintains restrictions on Alaska's Pebble Mine project
Pruitt said he made the decision after reading public comments made to his agency after the earlier decision. Pebble moved ahead with efforts to win government permitting approval, applying with the U.S.

Accompanying a black and white photo of Cara on her phone in a room full of balloons, she added, "I'm aware that my music wasn't released yesterday, I'm aware that, yes, my music has become fairly popular in the past year".

"I think it has to begin with women who have the creativity in their hearts and their souls - who want to be musicians, who want to be engineers, who want to be producers, who want to be part of the industry on an executive level - to step up, because I think they would be welcome", Portnow told journalists backstage after the show. And then another day I'm gonna be like, 'Yo, let's f*cking turn up over this trap beat on some 2 Chainz sh*t because this is fun.' So I think the biggest thing is that my whole career, they've tried to put me in a box, especially in hip-hop. Thanks.' And I'd give them a hug and shit but in my mind, I'm like, 'What the fuck?' And they're really serious. All of the years feeling like I wasn't good at anything or that I was naive for dreaming about something improbable have paid off in a way that I have yet to process.

But the most noteworthy statement came when Logic, speaking about the value of diversity, said "You are not a shithole" speaking directly to countries that were the reported subjects of President Donald Trump's controversial remarks about Haiti, El Salvador and some African countries earlier this month. "I know it sounds cheesy and dumb but it's the honest truth".

Alessia Cara was the only female artist to win a major award.
