Tiffany Haddish Says She Turned Down Hosting the Grammys Pre-Show Ceremony

The actress says the Recording Academy expected her to take on the role without compensation and wouldn’t cover hair, makeup and wardrobe either.

Tiffany Haddish says she turned down an offer to host the 2021 Grammys Premiere Ceremony, sharing that the Recording Academy expected her to take on the role without compensation, according to an interview with Variety.

The comedy star also said that her hair, makeup and wardrobe would not be covered either. “All of that would have to come out of my pocket,” she said. “I don’t know if this might mean I might not get nominated ever again, but I think it’s disrespectful.

“I was like, ‘The exposure is amazing but I think I have enough. I appreciate you guys asking,’” she continued. “And as much as I appreciate the honor of being nominated, that’s not OK.”
