Big controversy this week when Randy Jackson of American Idol tweeted the following:
Who should win album of the year?? Gaga, Beyonce, Taylor swift, black eye peas or Dave matthews band!! help me!! c'mon
alright guys... thanks for your help... gotta get back to work ... ya all are amazing!!! HOLLA, ONE!
As Billboard reported, Grammy rules ban seeking outside opinions when it comes to voting, so Jackson's tweets raised some eyebrows. Enough so that the L.A. Times reported a Jackson spokesperson has now denied the tweets were his, claiming instead they came from one of Jackson's assistants.
Some of the tweets in question have been removed, but others remain.
