Kanye Really Wasn't Joking At All When He Jumped On Stage After Beck Won Album Of The Year

 

HuffPo - During the Grammys broadcast on Sunday night, Kanye West nearly interrupted Beck after the rock star won Album of the Year over Beyoncé. Many outlets, including HuffPost Entertainment, assumed West’s improv was a joking reference to when he cut off Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV VMAs. It wasn’t, as West revealed during an interview with the E! after the Grammys. “I just know that the Grammys, if they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us,” West said (via Vanity Fair). “We ain’t going to play with them no more. ‘Flawless.’ Beyoncé’s video. And Beck needs to respect artistry, and he should have given his award to Beyoncé.”

Continued West:

At this point, we tired of it. 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, you’re disrespectful to inspiration. 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. Then they do this promotional event, and they’ll run the music over somebody’s speech, the artist, because they want commercial advertising. No. We not playing with them anymore. And by the way, I got my wife, my daughter, and I got my clothing line, so I’m not going to do nothing that would put my daughter at risk, but I am here to fight for creativity. That’s the reason why I didn’t say anything tonight. But you all knew what it meant when ‘Ye walked on that stage.

 
 

What an insufferable douchebag to the point that I enjoy his fishstickness. And I’m a huge Kanye guy. Have loved Kanye since day 1, besides 808s. But man, he loves him some Kanye some than I love my own family, and at this point I would not have it any other way. We need Kanye to make everything about himself. We need Kanye to ruin every award show. It’s what he’s good for now. He’s our entertainment. Dance for us Kanye, do that trick.

I love that he cares what the Grammys gives awards to. The GRAMMYS. The award show that gave Macklemore best rap album last year. The award show that gave Tenacious D “Best Metal Album”. METAL. That’s what Kanye cares about, is who wins these dumb awards.

As for the show itself last night, D–. Full of sad, long, boring performances. 3 and a half hours that could have been cut down to 2. A 30 minute thing devoted to not hitting your girlfriend while Chris Brown sat in the front row. And of course Beck winning the most important award of the night. Beck is an asshole. He’s the guy who once released a CD, but instead of it being music, it was just the sheet music. He doesn’t deserve anything for being that big of an asshole. Other notes: Lady Gaga looked hot, Katy Perry switched from purple hair to black hair in the middle of the show, Beyonce went on at 11:30 once everyone stopped watching, Pharrell is a douche, Gwen Stefani doesn’t age, and Paul McCartney wasn’t even nominated for Best New Artist.
