WAS KANYE’S BEHAVIOUR AT THE GRAMMYS AWKWARD?
Kanye West, was perhaps nursing a sore head after behaving very awkwardly backstage at the Grammys. The rapper ran after Beck as he accepted his award for Album Of The Year – beating Beyonce – in what appeared to be a nod to his 2009 stage ambush on Taylor Swift, when he told the audience Beyonce should have won over Taylor at the VMAs.
Speaking to Khloe Kardashian backstage, who was reporting for E!, Kanye launched into a scathing attack on Beck and organizers of the event.
‘We ain’t gonna play with them no more,’ Kanye began. ‘Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé.’
He continued: ‘At this point – we’re tired of it because what happens is, you keep on diminishing art and not respecting the craft and smacking people in the face after they deliver monumental music. You are disrespectful to inspiration.’
Kim looked shocked as she watched Kanye rant backstage, and eventually interrupted telling presenters they were due to catch a flight to New York.
At one point Kim said ‘I wish he had of said something [on stage]’ and echoed Kanye’s sentiments about ‘fighting for creativity’.
She later showed her support by posting her own shock reaction to Beck’s win.
