Many big stars like Kanye West, Justin Bieber and Drake are reportedly going to be MIA from the Grammys this year.
According to TMZ, it started with Frank Ocean, who many think had the best album of the year, but didn't even bother submitting it for Grammy consideration. Ocean says he thinks the Grammys are a dinosaur that doesn't represent young, black artists.

Justin Bieber, who's nominated for 4 Grammys, plans to be somewhere other than the Grammys a week from Sunday because he just doesn't think the Grammys are relevant or representative, especially when it comes to young singers.

Drake has 8 nominations but reportedly  doesn't plan to be there because he'll be on tour in Europe.
As for Kanye, who's got 8 noms, he received 21 Grammys in the past, but he always lost when he went head-to-head against a white singer.
Sources tell TMZ there's no real anger, it's just that a lot of younger singers think the Grammys are out of touch and arguably irrelevant.
They could all change their minds and show up, but  as of now the plan is to take a raincheck.
