On January 15, 2020, Deborah Dugan was fired from her presidency of the Grammy Awards. The woman held this position for a little more than six months. Deborah's removal from office was due to exceeding official duties. The former president's personal assistant, Claudie Little, filed a lawsuit stating this reason. Clauddy also stated that Dugan constantly insulted, humiliated and mistreated her staff.
At the moment, the scandal around the woman is growing. Only this time, Dugan herself made a scandalous statement against the National Academy of Arts and Recordings. In her words, she is sincerely glad that she left the presidency, because while in office she constantly experienced harassment from different sides. This also applies to sexual harassment and humiliation associated with gender inequality.
Deborah told reporters that she knows about the fact of unequal distribution of wages. After all, she received exactly half the bonus than the previous men in the same position. The fact about the former head of “Grammy” Neil Portnov also became a sensation. According to Dugan, he raped one of the contenders for the award, which was the reason for his dismissal, which everyone hid.
Deborah did not stop there and revealed another secret of the Grammy organizers. She admitted that members of the academy very often fake votes and include groups and artists in the list of nominees that did not even make it into the top twenty. She remembered an incident that happened last year and cited it as an example. Ariana Grande was supposed to fight for the prestigious statuette in 2019, but the members of the commission at the very last moment put a completely different artist in her place. Most likely, Ariana's popular song would have won, according to Deborah, but her track was replaced by a completely different artist who did not deserve this victory.
Dugan promised reporters that her exposure of the Grammy award will not end there, she will soon tell more sensational facts about the outstanding competition. This topic has become very relevant on the Internet, and is gaining momentum every day. Many people say that this year's award proceedings will be much more interesting and exciting than the event itself. By the way, it will be held the other day, on January 26, 2020.
