On April 3rd, the 64th Annual Grammy Awards took place in Las Vegas. After BTS showed off their dapper look in Louis Vuitton on the red carpet and prior to their live performance that received a standing ovation, member V was spotted smoking backstage. His pictures were then spread rapidly across various social media and online communities.
Fans are angered after seeing these pictures as it was obvious the pictures were taken without V's permission.
Meanwhile, BTS has been nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance but the award went to Doja Cat and SZA. The group has been nominated for the award for two consecutive years, making history as a Korean artist. And BTS has an after-party with their fans planned as they will be holding 'Permission to Dance on Stage' concerts on April 8th, 9th, 15th, and 16th at Allegiant Stadium.
