If you dig deep into your Grammy memory, you’ll realize that Justin Bieber never won for “Best New Artist.” This past Sunday the 28th, the lovely and talented Alessia Cara won that exact award on the Grammys. Pretty cool, congratulations!

But wait – it’s also said that winning the award for “Best New artist” might be a curse. It’s probably just a psychological thing, but a lot of the artists who won that award went on to, well, not really do much else. Milli Vanilli won the award, and then their record started skipping, literally, and brought their career to an end. Arrested Development’s (1993 win) second album didn’t do near as well as the first. But then you look at Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, and Bieber himself with their awesome careers – and they never won “Best New Artist.”

It was Justin Bieber who was asked specifically about the “curse” of winning the “Best New Artist” award, and he had a little bit to say. Literally, a little bit. As he was leaving dinner, he said “could be,” referring to whether or not he thought it was a curse. Check out the video, and watch the guy with the camera almost walk into a dumpster. Side note, but pretty funny still.

As far as the “curse,” well, we don’t know about the authenticity of that, considering The Beatles, Mariah Carey, and Adele all won the award, clearly disproving any sort of “curse.” We’ll see what happens, Alessia has released some great music, and we can’t wait to see what else she’s cooking up in the studio.
