“Me and Megan Thee Stallion couldn’t be more opposite,” the country singer notes. “She’s real hot girl s–t, and that’s why it’s so important to so many people because there’s literally room for everyone.”
Others nominated in the Best New Artist category are Phoebe Bridgers, Chika, Noah Cyrus, D Smoke, Doja Cat and Kaytranada.
Ingrid’s hit album, Lady Like, could also score her a Grammy on Sunday night. The musician explains why she wanted to put a spin on the old-school phrase.
“I grew up in a house where I was never told I couldn’t do something because I was a woman,” Ingrid says. “It just opened up a whole new perspective when I started hearing, ‘Oh you curse too much, that’s not very ladylike. Or you’re wearing something very revealing and you’re not wearing a bra, that’s not very lady-like.'”
“So,” she continues, “I wrote that song, hopefully, to empower other people—both men and women—to just be like, ‘You can’t put me in a box, bitch.'”
Whether or not she goes home a winner on Sunday, that’s a message we can all get behind!
