Beck Brushes Off Kanye Rant: “You Can’t Please Everybody”
Sunday night’s Grammys were going relatively smooth until Kanye West bombarded the stage when Beck accepted the award for Album of the Year.
Kanye nearly relived his infamous 2009 “Imma left you finish” Taylor Swift MTV Video Music Awards moment when he jumped on stage to interrupt Beck’s speech, however, he held back and went back to his seat before completely making a fool of himself.
While it was nice to see the rapper usher some self control, Kanye didn’t exactly hold back during E!’s After Party, where he ranted that Beyonce should have taken home the Album of the Year award. “I don’t know what he said, all I know is if the Grammys want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us,” Ye said. “We ain’t gonna play with them no more. ‘Flawless,’ Beyoncé video. Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé, and at this point, we tired of it.”
Beck didn’t seem to mind Kanye’s comments, telling People, “You can’t please everybody. I still love him and think he’s genius. I aspire to what he does. How many great records has he put out in the last five years, right?”
Beck’s, Morning Phase won over Beyonce’s, Beyonce, Ed Sheeran’s X, Sam Smith’s, In The Lonely Hour and Pharrell Williams’, Girl.
