When Kanye West almost “Imma’d” Beck at the Grammys last night, I thought he was doing a little joking and attention whoring at the same time, but nope. Kanye wasn’t joking and he wanted to take us all the way back to the 2009 MTV VMAs by snatching away Beck’s microphone to rant about how Beyonce had the greatest album of all-time.
After the Grammys, Kanwhine and Kummy Kakes talked to Khlozilla and the other head nodders at E! and he used his time in front of their cameras to rip off E!’s logo from the mic and stick his tongue all the way up Beyonce’s bey-hole by saying that she should’ve won Album of the Year and the Grammys need to embrace real artists (“Um, they totally do!” – Grammy nominee Meghan Trainor). Kanye wanted to hijack Beck’s Grammy moment and spit out a stan stream for Beyonce into that mic, but he didn’t, because of his clothing line or something.
“If they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us. Flawless Beyoncé video, and Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé. And at this point, we tired of it! Because what happens is, when you keep on diminishing art and not respecting the craft and smacking people in the face after they deliver monumental feats of music. It’s disrespectful to inspiration. And we as musicians have to inspire people who go to work everyday, and listen to Beyoncé and they feel like it takes them to another place. Then they do this whole promotional event, and they’ll run the music over somebody’s speech, an artist, because they want a commercial advertising. No, we not playing with them no more. And by the way, I got my wife, I got my daughter, and my clothing line, so I’m not gonna do nothing to put my daughter at risk. But I am here to fight for creativity, that’s the reason I didn’t say anything tonight. But y’all know what it meant when ‘Ye walks on that stage.”
If you want to see Kummy (who made one of Liberace’s tasteful daytime lounging robes look like a piece of cheap trash) stand next to Kuntye while thinking to herself, “I wish he’d talk about me the same way he talks about Beyonce…. But, Kummy, just think of all the attention this interview is going to get and think about how many people are going to see your tits since they don’t see them nearly enough… Hmmm… I wonder what the camera on my iPhone is doing? I haven’t seen it in a whole 3 minutes. I miss it,” here’s the clip of that moment.
Beck wasn’t bothered by Kanye’s cry baby rant and made it clear that he’s not going to go full Taylor Swift by writing a serious song about how Kanye’s just an innocent boy who fell off a tightrope. Beck shifted into third gear and took the high road when he told UsWeekly that he loves Kanye and thinks Beyonce should’ve won:
“I was just so excited he was coming up. He deserves to be on stage as much as anybody,” Beck said when asked how he felt about West crashing the stage. “How many great records has he put out in the last five years right?”
Even though he said Beyonce should have won? “Absolutely,” replied the humble musician. “I thought she was going to win. Come on, she’s Beyonce!”
And what about his diss that Beyonce is true artistry, and you’re not? “You can’t please everybody, man,” he replied. “I still love him and think he’s genius. I aspire to do what he does.”
Whenever Kanye is at an awards show where Beyonce is nominated, he needs to be strapped into his seat like a toddler who keeps getting out of his bed in the middle of the night (shout out to Mommie Dearest). We get it, Kanye is the President, Vice President, Secretary, Publicist and #1 Hype Man of the BeyHive and he tongue fucks the ground she walks on, but it’s just the Grammys. It’s not that serious. The Baha Men have won one for fuck’s sake. But Kanye does have a point about Beck needing to respect artistry. Because a musician who plays a million instruments, writes his own songs and produced his album by himself DEFINITELY needs to respect artistry since it’s obvious he doesn’t.
And this is probably going to put an end to Scientology. When David Miscavige and the other space overlords go after Kanye for talking shit about one of their golden children, they’re going to bash their skulls in with E-meter cans when Kanye starts rambling about artistry and creativity again.
