Kanye VS Beck: Kanye Strikes Again At Grammy Awards

Last night Beck was no loser as the musician took home the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. However it was Beck’s second Grammy of the night for Album of The Year, which was a big upset to many including favorites Sam Smith and Beyoncé that especially had Kanye West seeing red.

“Mr. Kardashian” seemed to be jokingly referencing his infamous 2009 “Imma let you finish” interruption of Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards where Swift also beat out Beyoncé. He quickly backed away from a bewildered Beck who also seemed shocked to have won Album of The year for his album “Morning Phase.”

If he had just left things there it would have been a pretty good self-deprecating joke. Kanye got a laugh from the Grammy Awards audience at the Staple Center in Los Angeles Sunday night and even elicited a chuckle from Jay Z who thought Kanye was going to do it again in defense of Beyonce.

However Kanye being Kanye, he couldn’t leave things there, and during a post-show interview went on to remind us of just what a giant, insufferable douchebag he is. An entertaining douche, but a douche all the same. Just watch:

In part of the rant he says that; “If they want real artists to come back they need to stop playing with us.” And he totally shreds Beck saying; “Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé.”

If Kanye does this at the MTV VMA’s and the Grammy’s, hopefully Beyoncé is never nominated for an Oscar.

Who needs to respect artistry? It’s like the Seattle Seahawks getting in a fight in the end zone when they realize they are losing the Super Bowl. Like Beck is just some random guy they found off the street who was banging on bottles and cans and just clapping his hands.

I’m no huge Beck fan, but this guy has been writing and recording hits using actual instruments way longer than Kanye.  But what do I know.. maybe Kanye is right? So have at it Beyoncé fans VS Beck fans; who should have won Album of The Year? The Devil’s Haircut VS The Queen B.
