“Why take the GRAMMYs seriously when Addison Rae and James Charles are attending.”

Addison Rae and James Charles attended the 2022 GRAMMYs on Sunday, April 3, and people are wondering why.

The GRAMMYs are arguably the biggest night in music where only the best artists in the industry come together to demand validation for all their hard work. The star-studded guest list for this year’s ceremony included Doja Cat, Olivia Rodrigo, Billie Eilish and… Addison Rae and James Charles.

The TikTok star looked radiant in a classic champagne strappy dress as she made her red carpet debut with songwriter boyfriend Omer Fedi. James Charles was also in attendance, and the YouTuber walked the red carpet alone in an all-black outfit. Although they didn’t look out of place at all, their presence sparked plenty of conversations on social media about how they managed to get an invite.

To be fair, Addison is actually a singer and she was even named one of the top 10 female singers of all time. Addison released his debut single “Obsessed” in 2021. The song did not chart on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, but it peaked at number 10 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart, which lists the best songs that have not yet registered on the main list. She is also believed to have recorded a highly anticipated cover of Lady Gaga’s unreleased song “Nothing On (But The Radio)” for her upcoming album.

It’s also worth noting that Addison’s boyfriend Omer had three 2022 GRAMMY nominations for the credits for Lil Nas X’s hit song “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)” and album. Monterowho were retrospectively nominated for Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Album Of The Year.

But James? Well, other than his viral cover of Tyga’s “Taste,” we don’t know his connection to the music industry. Moreover, following his series of controversies and allegations regarding his inappropriate behavior, people found it incredibly strange that he managed to blame an invitation to the ceremony.

Addison has now apparently addressed the backlash on Instagram. The actress shared photos from the red carpet and shut down people who questioned her presence in the caption.

She simply wrote, “My nominated bfs.”
