Back in 2013 Frank Ocean won the Best Urban Contemporary Album Grammy over Miguel and Chris Brown. Both refused to give Ocean a standing ovation when he went onstage—and it looks like Miguel’s feelings about the musician haven’t changed in the two years since.
“I wouldn’t say we were friends,” Miguel told The Sunday Times, referring to Ocean. “To be completely honest—and no disrespect to anyone—I genuinely believe that I make better music, all the way around.”
