6 Popular Female Artists Who Lost a Major Music Award to Their Famous Ex
If there’s one thing that should deter everyone from wanting to be a celebrity, it’s the prospect of dating in the public eye. Getting constantly asked about relationships is only one of many struggles that celebs have to deal with — they’re also stuck with the responsibility of announcing their breakups to avoid fan confusion and then there’s always the risk of awkwardly running into a former flame at a flashy Hollywood party. And if you thought a run-in is awk, imagine being nominated for the same award as an ex… and then having THEM win! Even if you’re not petty AF, that’s gotta hurt.
Losing sucks. It sucks even more when you lose to someone you have a ~history~ with. So for these six female artists, it must have been pretty effing awful missing out on a major music award to their celeb ex.
The saga that is this Disney star's relaysh with Justin Bieber continued into 2016 when she lost two awards to her ex-boo — one Billboard Music Award and one Teen Choice Award. Technically, she didn't lose the BBMA... her fans did! — JB was voted for having the Best Fan Army.
At the TCAs, however, you may have thought her hand was STACKED considering she had two tracks ("We Don't Talk Anymore" and "Same Old Love") nominated for Choice Breakup Song. Unfortunately, The Biebs' "Love Yourself" got the W over Sel's TWO tunes.
