Justin Bieber is reportedly set to miss the 2018 Grammy Awards despite being nominated in a number of award categories.
The singer has been recognised for his work on the remix of Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s smash hit ‘Despacito’, with the song being nominated for Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
However, Bieber is set to miss the ceremony – which will take place at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday night (January 28) – as he is working on his next music project.
Bieber is currently in the studio working on the follow-up to his 2015 album ‘Purpose’ and doesn’t want to make any more public appearances until after the new record is finished.
