Addison Rae made her Grammy debut this year with boyfriend Omer Fedi. The latter is a successful artist who has helped produce songs for Lil Nas X, The Kid LAROI, Justin Bieber, and more. The artist had nominations in three categories this year, including Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year for the album MONTERO, with Lil Nas X.

However, many internet users couldn't figure out why the TikTok star was attending the event, as she has only released one song in her career. This evolved into a flurry of Tweets criticizing the influencer for her presence at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards that was held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas, on April 3, 2022.

One user, @figgynyk voiced their confusion, questioning why Rae was attending the prestigious music event.

So you’re telling me Addison rae is in the Grammy but not Julia micheals, Sabrina Carpenter and JP Saxe? What have the world become-
Ariana wasn't in the Grammy's but Addison Rae? ....I'm going back into the closet.
the grammy’s felt a little… idk how else to put it but empty? kinda? it feels like so many people weren’t there; ariana grande, harry styles, taylor swift, cardi b, beyoncé, just to name a few. i guess that’s why it felt like something was missing tonight.

Many took this chance to create memes about the influencer. They joked that Addison Rae might win an award for her unrealeased song.

Addison Rae and Omer Fedi started dating in the summer of 2021

Dating rumors regarding Rae and Fedi started making the rounds on social media during the first few months of 2021. Their relationship was teased by Rae through an Instagram story that she posted in July 2021. The story featured a video of two shadows kissing each other.

Then, in August, Fedi promoted Rae's debut movie, He's All That, on his Instagram account. The movie made considerable profit after its release; at the same time, Fedi's song with Justin Bieber and Kid Laroi was charting at number one on the billboards.

He shared his joy through another Instagram story, confirming his relationship with Addison Rae. He posted,

"Me and my baby are both number 1 atm. I’m so, so, so proud of her. Wonder if we’re the first couple to ever do that with a movie and a song? Anyway, love you babe."

Since then, the couple have been going steady and making regular appearances in each other's social media posts.
