Sometimes we just need a ginger rock goddess from Scotland to strap a trick in his high chair and spoon feed him a whole lot of truth. Shirley Manson of Garbage watched with all of us as Kanye West pulled an “Imma” fake out on Beck at the Grammys before later telling E! that he wasn’t joking and Beyonce should have won Album of the Year, because artistry must be respected. I’m sure the Grammy hos heard Kry Baby Kanye loud and clear and next year will belatedly pay tribute to his wife’s highly artistic contributions to the music world by naming “Jam (Turn It Up” as Best Song By A Soulless Hose Beast.
Even though Beck isn’t bothered, Shirley just couldn’t stay quiet as Kanye shit on Beck’s win and continued to defend a woman who already has her own team of bodyguards (led by welterweight elevator fighter Basement Baby), so she spit out her rant on Facebook.
Shirley let it all out:
Dear Kanye West
It is YOU who is so busy disrespecting artistry.
You disrespect your own remarkable talents and more importantly you disrespect the talent, hard work and tenacity of all artists when you go so rudely and savagely after such an accomplished and humble artist like BECK.
You make yourself look small and petty and spoilt.
In attempting to reduce the importance of one great talent over another, you make a mockery of all musicians and music from every genre, including your own.
Grow up and stop throwing your toys around.
You are making yourself look like a complete twat.
Ps.I am pretty certain Beyonce doesn’t need you fighting any battles on her account. Seems like she’s got everything covered perfectly well on her own.
Shirley didn’t lie about Beyonce’s constant defending of Beyonce. Kanye might love Beyonce more than Kanye loves Kanye and that’s a scary kind of obsessive love. Kanye’s acting like Beyonce invented the CAPS-LOCK key. And Beyonce cares so much about Kanye that she didn’t even show up to his damn bullshit wedding. When Beyonce’s personal pilot told her the jet was all fueled up for Florence, she probably rolled her eyes, told her assistant to send Quinoa, or whatever his name is, a Bed, Bath and Beyond gift card and went back to Photoshopping her Instagram pictures.
Beck doesn’t need defending either, but I’m glad that Shirley jumped in and I hope this inspires Sinead O’Connor to get into this SCANDAL. Because it’s not a real music world feud until Sinead O’Connor calls someone a puppet prostitute.
And here’s Kanye at JFK talking about how much he loves Beck while looking like a retired pimp getting his newspaper in the morning:
Is Kanye drunk on the sweet nectar or is he just drunk on Kanye? Because he looks like he’s feeling the kind of happy drunk my auntie feels after she’s had a glass of Prosecco and a Gipsy Kings song comes on the Jambox.
And if you really want to see Kim dressed like a member of the Ho Shit Army in NYC, I’ve thrown those pictures into the gallery. It’s apparently colder than Pimp Mama Kris’ heart in NYC, but I guess all that plastic underneath Kim’s skin is keeping her warm.
