Although the media is chalking Kanye’s stupidity to a simple joke, it’s just not funny. Frankly, his arrogrant, rude self just made himself look silly and disrespected true artistry. The rapper and most relevant role these days……….Kim Kardashian’s husband/babydaddy struck again on Sunday’s night Grammy show. When Beck won over Beyonce, he bombarded the stage similar to his 2009 rant interupting Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech (she too, won over Beyonce). This time he ran on stage and jokingly ran back down, He believed that his friend, Beyonce was snubbed and deserved to win the catergory (keep in mind she won 3 that night and that was ADDING to her 17). This is what he had to say for his childish antic.
When you keep on diminishing art and not respecting the craft and smacking people in the face after they deliver monumental feats of music, you’re disrespectful to inspiration and we, as musicians, have to inspire people who go to work every day and they listen to that Beyoncé album and they feel like it takes them to another place.”
Kanye West has free speech similar to any other American, but the last time I checked……his words was an OPINION. Who is Kanye to say that Beyonce body of work is better than Beck. Everyone has different preferences of music and discrediting another artist is hurtful and bullying. As an artist, Kanye knew better, where was his respect for all musicians, artist, writers, poets, etc.
Beck respond was nothing short of a class act’s respond
“I was just so excited he was coming up.” [West] deserves to be onstage as much as anybody. How many great records has he put out in the last five years, right?” And when asked about Beyonce not winnng he said: “I thought she was going to win. Come on, she’s Beyonce! . . . You can’t please everybody, man. I still love [West] and think he’s genius. I aspire to do what he does.”
Kanye needs therapy and JESUS.
