Lady Gaga is changing the rules for Grammy Awards

However, Lady Gaga hasn’t been nominated in this category in 2010.

Although Lady Gaga was by far the most successful artist who debuted on the music scene in 2009, she was not considered eligible under the category “Best New Artist” because she was nominated at a different category a year earlier.

Recording Academy’s representatives – Grammy awarding institution – have decided Wednesday that a previous selection – but not a victory – will not be an impediment to the nomination of an artist from now on. American experts have taken into account in their decision the current trends in the music industry, under which most artists released their debut singles long before their debut album or starts singing in duet with other artists on their albums.

Lady Gaga has been nominated for a Grammy in the category “Best Dance”, in 2008, with her debut hit single entitled “Just Dance”. Her first album, The Fame, arrived in the U.S. music charts by the end of that year, after the period of eligibility.

Lady Gaga has received five Grammy nominations last year, but its exclusion from the category “Best New Artist” allowed Zac Brown Band to go home with the trophy.

“I’m going to the Grammys alone, as always!” she said on Thursday in an interview.. “Even when I was in a relationship, I always have gone alone.”

Nevertheless, she said that: “I’m still single, if that’s what you really want to ask!”.

Concerning the rumors that circulated recently about her relationship with Kemp and the photos with them in Mexico she said: “It was a blast!”

Rihanna was nominated for a Grammy with Jay-Z and Kanye West, for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “Run This Town.”

“This was actually the first piece of music we did since the last Grammys,” she said. “It’s exciting that it’s nominated. We cannot wait. We hope we bring home the bacon, but if not, it’s great that it was nominated.”

Moreover, the singer couldn’t appear on last years’ ceremony due to the fact that ex boyfriend, Chris Brown assaulted her the night before the show.

Consequently, Brown pleaded guilty to felony and now he’s due to five years of probation.
