Do you have friends who you wish would just stop talking? For Beyonce and Jay Z, that person is Kanye West. After the rapper slammed Beck and the Grammys, HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned that the power couple is worried about being associated with him.
Kanye West embarrassed more than himself at, and following, the Grammy Awards on Feb. 8. He also embarrassed his good friends, Beyonce and Jay Z, when he went on a tangest and dissed Beck, who won the Album Of The Year award, as well as the show as a whole.
Beyonce & Jay Z React To Kanye West’s Grammys Diss — They’re Embarrassed By Him
“To say Jay Z and Beyonce were embarrassed by what Kanye had to say about Beck and the Grammy Awards is an understatement. First of all, Jay Z is a huge fan of Beck. Second of all, he doesn’t want or need Kanye acting like he’s part of Beyonce’s team because he isn’t. Both Jay Z and Beyonce don’t want to be associated with Kanye. They will put on their happy faces when they are around him and Kim, but that’s where the party stops,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
If Kanye’s not careful, he may lose Beyonce and Jay Z as friends. They may be cordial in person, but it’s pretty clear that Beyonce and Jay Z are afraid Kanye may tarnish their brand. Maybe that’s why they didn’t attend his wedding, when he married Kim Kardashian.
Kanye West Disses Beck After Grammys: He Should Have Give His Award To Beyonce
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Kanye slammed both the Grammys and Beck, following the ceremony.
“I just know that the Grammys, if they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us,” he told E! during their after show. “We ain’t gonna play with them no more. And Beck needs to respect artistry and he should’ve given his award to Beyonce.”
Kanye also said he’s “tired” of the Grammys “diminishing” art and “not giving credit where credit is due,” according to Us Weekly. “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. And we as musicians have to inspire people who go to work every day, and they listen to that Beyonce album and they feel like it takes them to another place,” he said.
Whether or not you agree with what Kanye said, maybe he should have kept his opinions to himself — at least for the sake of his friendships with Beyonce and Jay Z!
