SZA‘s definitely a “glass half full” kinda artist … because she says she’s already moved on from losing Album of the Year at the 66th Grammy Awards.
The rapper/R&B singer sat down with The Hollywood Reporter Monday — one day after her album “SOS” lost out to Taylor Swift‘s “Midnights” for the evening’s biggest award — and, she said she didn’t care as much about the trophies as simply “surviving the night.”
ICYMI … SZA also performed on Grammys Sunday — and was late receiving one of the three Grammys she did win because of it — so, it seems the 34-year-old had much more pressing issues on her mind.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
Basically, SZA said she’s happy to have won 3 awards, no matter how big or small they are in the rest of the world’s eyes … adding she didn’t “bomb on live television” so the whole thing worked out great for her.
And, if you think losing on one of her nominations to T-Swift’s buggin’ SZA, then think again — ’cause she told THR she got to talk with Taylor a ton at the event and called her “funny as hell.”
Sounds like the beginning of a beautiful celeb friendship.
FWIW … SZA’s been getting a ton of love from other celebs — like Beyoncé,who seems to have sent her a handwritten note that she reposted to IG. Definitely makes it hard to obsess over one more Grammy when the Queen reaches out.
So, Sza’s clearly staying positive … and hey, there’s always next year!!!
