SZA recently talked about her big loss at the Grammy Awards last January. The 27-year-old singer said that she felt like she disappointed her fans.

The "All the Stars" singer said that she purposely did not post anything on social media because she had no idea how she should react. A month has already passed since the Grammy Awards, and SZA said that she thinks it is time to finally talk about what happened.

During an interview, SZA said that she initially felt mad as hell for not winning anything, but she later on felt free and light.

"It was super weird. I felt like I had all this weight off my shoulders. For certain things, maybe it's worth really giving a f***, but I still think it's always worth giving a f***. It's just learning how to process the lesson, the opportunity, the gift of the moment, rather than just letting your ego dictate what it all means. That was hard, but it was a really beautiful lesson. I'm super grateful," said SZA.

After the event, SZA also did not read articles about the Grammys. She also refused to look into the comments of both fans and critics. One fan approached SZA and told her that she was supposed to receive the top award that night. One of her friends also showed her Alessia Cara's post weeks later.

SZA also said that she is not mad at Cara for winning the Best New Artist award. In fact, she is a huge fan of the singer. SZA praised Cara's voice quality and compared it to milk and water. She also said that Cara deserves all of the recognition she has been receiving, and she does not care when Cara's album came out.

Alessia Cara Breaks Silence On Controversial Win

Cara, 21, posted a lengthy post on her social media account after she won at the Grammy Awards. The "Scars to Your Beautiful" singer said that she had no control over who should and should not win at the awards show. She also said that she did not log onto Grammy's website to vote for herself.

"All of the years feeling like I wasn't good at anything or that I was naïve for dreaming about something improbable have paid off in a way that I have yet to process," wrote Cara.
