Justin Bieber's manager in Twitter rant over Grammys snub
Scooter Braun unhappy that pint-sized popstar didn't pick up a single nod
Justin Bieber's manager embarked on a Twitter rant after the singer was snubbed from the shortlist for next year's Grammy Awards.
As the Huffington Post reports, the 18-year-old's manager Scooter Braun took to the social networking site to express his disdain after Bieber failed to pick up a single nomination.
"first...congrats to @carlyraejepsenm" he wrote first of all. "Thought u deserved a best new artist nom, but proud Call Me Maybe got u 2 noms. so proud of u." He then went on to claim that Bieber had been unfairly ignored, claiming that the "kid delivered" and that the Grammy board "blew it" by not putting him forward for any awards. You can see his Tweets below:

...this time he deserved to be recognized and I dont really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision i dont agree with.— Scooter Braun (@scooterbraun) December 6, 2012
Bieber released his latest studio album, 'Believe', in June of this year. In November of this year, charges filed against the singer for his role in an alleged fight with a photographer were dropped due to a lack of evidence - although Bieber is also on the receiving end of another lawsuit, in which a man alleges that he stole his credit card to pay for penis enlargement surgery.
