After the Grammy Award nominations were announced on Tuesday, Justin Bieber shared a lengthy post to Instagram taking issue that his album "Changes" was nominated in pop categories and not R&B categories.

In his post, Bieber, who earned four nods, said he is "flattered" to be nominated and "appreciated for my artistry" but goes on to complain about his nominations.

"I am very meticulous and intent about my music," the Canadian pop star wrote." With that being said I set out to make an R&B album. 'Changes' was and is an R&B album. It is not being acknowledged as an R&B album which is very strange to me."

Later in his note, Bieber said he "absolutely loves pop music" but writes "it just wasn't what I set out to make this time around."
