Beck On Kanye West’s Grammys Diss
“I was just so excited he was coming up,” Beck told HollywoodLife.com at the Universal Music Grammy Party presented by American Airlines and Citi. “He deserves to be on stage as much as anybody. How many great records has he put out in the last five years, right?”
Shockingly, Beck agreed with Kanye and praised Queen Bey! See Beyonce’s reaction to Kanye’s latest stunt here.
“I thought she was going to win,” he continued. “Come on, she’s Beyoncé!”
In regards to Kanye’s comments that Beck needs to “respect artistry,” Beck said, “You can’t please everybody, man. I still love him and think he’s genius. I aspire to do what he does.”
Wow. Many artists would have been infuriated by Kanye’s rant. Beck has proven he’s a gem on and off the stage.
The only other person at the 2015 Grammys that Kanye had shockingly dissed before was Taylor Swift, 25. Everyone remembers where they were and what they were doing when Kanye crashed her 2009 VMAs acceptance speech.
