image from www.hypebot.comA petition demanding the resignation of long time   Recording Academy president Neil Portnow has now surpassed its original goal of 10,000 signatures. By mid-day on Friday, 13,467 had signed demanding the exec exit after his tone deaf comments that women should "step up" if they want to end systemic gender discrimination in music.

  1. I can’t believe GRAMMY voters vote ONLY a certain way because the artists are a male or female, but on the scope of their work & depth of their creativity. Neil Portnow doesn’t send a ‘memo’ to voters like ‘please only vote for males’….absurd. I know Neil is a longtime friend & supporter of female & male artists, writers, producers & exec.
