"I came out of the closet at 15 years old when I was in high school, and I can assure you that I was never invited to any parties and never got to attend a dance". "Thank you @RecordingAcad #Grammys #Grammy and my co-writers and Bradley I love you so much thank you", the pop star wrote Sunday night before the show. "I support her and I support her decision", she added. Taylor Swift, who was snubbed and one scored one nomination, also won't be at the show.
