Anitta Feels 'Like a Winner' Despite Losing Out on a Grammy Award

The 29-year-old Brazilian musician was nominated for Best New Artist, though the award eventually went to jazz singer Samara Joy at the 65th Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 5.

AceShowbiz - Anitta still "feels like a winner" despite missing out on a Grammy Award. Even though she lost the Best New Artist to jazz singer Samara Joy at the 65th Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 5, the 29-year-old star still insists she has "made history" because she is the first Brazillian to have been nominated for the accolade since Eumir Deodato received the nod in 1972.

She said, "It's crazy! I mean, it's been 50 years since Brazil [was nominated]. 50. 5-0 years since Brazil is not here. So for me and the whole country, it feels like we're making history right now. Today, I feel like a winner. Winning or not, it is already the biggest victory to be here and to be part of this major thing. So I'm feeling like a winner no matter what!"

"I can't wait for the afterparty, that's the one thing I always hope for and wish for. I wait for it. We have a lot of fun, we get drunk, blah, blah, blah. And then I want to say hi to everybody, and meet new people," the singer added.

She told E! News, "I'm here to meet people. For me, it is a new audience so starting again is also an ego exercise. Because in my country I'm treated like the biggest one and then you come here and you're from the zero. You've really gotta put yourself as a beginner and I do, I have no problems with that. I'm really happy to be here and I'm going to enjoy it!"
