Last month the Grammy nominations were unveiled, with Fiona Apple receiving three nominations this year - Best Rock Performance for "Shameika", Best Rock Song for "Shameika", and Best Alternative Music Album for Fetch The Bolt Cutters.

In a new interview with The Guardian, Apple discussed her issues with the Grammys, after finding out that Dr. Luke was nominated for a Grammy under his pseudonym Tyson Trax for his work on Doja Cat's "Say So".

Apple told The Guardian, "Also, I’m bringing up the Grammys and that’s really something that I shouldn’t be doing, but really, Dr Luke is nominated [under pseudonym Tyson Trax]? They had [Kesha] up there singing "Praying", and now they’re gonna go: "Oh but it’s Tyson Trax!" I’m waiting to hear more about what Deborah Dugan [former Recording Academy president] has to say [about the culture at the Recording Academy] because that all reeks to me. When you hire somebody and they raise questions and then they get fired? There’s a lot of things that she brought up that make it so that I can’t vet that situation and I don’t really wanna go there and support it."

Speaking about her Grammy nominations, Apple added, "I immediately had this feeling: I wish I was in a room with these ladies and we could celebrate. I felt really nice for a second. Every week I send a selfie to Simon, who runs the Tumblr site on me. I thought, for that week’s selfie, I’m gonna make a T-shirt with everybody’s names in little hearts: Phoebe [Bridgers], Brittany [Howard], Danielle, Este, Alana [Haim], Adrienne [Lenker, Big Thief], Grace [Potter]. But then I threw it away. I felt like this is exactly what they want me to do: It’s better now! I got nominated! And it’s all women this year and the Grammys are great! I keep going back to them putting Kesha on stage like, “We believe you” – and I believe her – then two years later, fucking Tyson Trax. Not to go back to that word, but it’s bullshit."

She added, "The feeling of wanting to celebrate with these women was genuine. But I should have that feeling anyway. I don’t know if anybody who’s nominated can help having the thought: what would I do If I won? My vision was that I would just get up there with a sledgehammer and I wouldn’t say anything, I would take the Grammy and smash it into enough pieces to share and I would invite all the ladies up. My second thought was I wonder if I can get all these ladies to boycott this shit because of Dr Luke."

Earlier this month Fiona Apple discussed her experience playing paino on Bob Dylan's "Murder Most Foul".
