AFI Singer

There's No Crying in Grammys

Davey Havok -- lead singer of the band AFI -- says he's BLOWN AWAY Kanye West would actually bitch about his Grammy nominations ... 'cause music isn't a competition for petty awards.

The rocker was leaving Chateau Marmont last night ... and we asked about Ye's latest outrage over his measly TWO Grammy noms this year.

By the way, Davey's never been nominated -- but somehow has a way better grip on how to handle Grammy glory, or in Kanye's case ... disappointment.

Davey's got some advice for Yeezy -- but, more importantly, he also has a pretty priceless reaction to a grown man whining over awards.

You have to remember that in 2009, this a55hole crashed the VMA stage, taking both the microphone and award from Taylor Swift, announcing that Beyoncé should have received the award. This man is a total loser.

I certainly could care less about Kanye but considering we've all pretty much learned this year that the top 4 Grammy awards, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and New Artist are chosen by a *special committee* therefore making those 4 awards a joke now. All grammy members vote but that special committee throws out enough votes so that the artists they want to be in those 4 categories get chosen. I'll never view them as legitimate again nor will I watch the show.

Love Davey Havok and AFI. Their music is amazing, and everything they stand for is amazing. Kanye really should just be ashamed for bitching over "only having 2" nominations. I mean really? And I'm sorry, but I'm not that impressed with his music. Keep rockin on Davey Havok!

davey's awesome. i love afi. but afi's music is totally different than kanye's. for one, they don't suck...but they're also not really in the mtv generation. i was surprised when they actually played them on there years ago but that was more tamer than very proud of ya. kanye's a bitch and always will be.

Maybe he is not "GOD" maybe tone down the arrogance....and cramming it down our throats.....If you are good at something, if your smart, if your pretty, you don't need to tell everyone all the time. People will know.
