We all know Kanye West has an ego, if not two, but would he dare try and interrupt Beck’s acceptance speech at the Grammys. interuption
The rapper infamously snatched the microphone of Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. As Taylor was about to thank all her friends and family, Mr.West butted in to announce that Beyonce should have won the award.
It was a move that didn’t go down well with the public, stealing the limelight from a teenage country-pop singer was a low-blow.
What Kanye have the balls to do it again? As Beck was given his ‘Best Album’ award by Prince, for his LP Morning Phase, the rapper shadowed him to the stage.
Thankfully this time Mr. West was only having a laugh with Beck and leaned into the microphone for a split second before running back to his seat.
Watch Kanye vs Beck below.
However, just when we thought Kanye might actually have a sense of humour, he said this to The Hollywood Reporter:
“I just know that the Grammys, if they want real artists, to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us. We ain’t gonna play with them no more and Beck needs to respect artistry and he should’ve given his award to Beyoncé.”
“Because when you keep on diminishing art and not respecting the craft and smacking people in their 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 said.
Thanks for the lecture Kanye.
