After the 2015 Grammys, Kanye went on a rant while being interviewed at the E! after party and he sort of totally dissed his wife and sister-in-law by saying that there’s only one reason why they are famous.
Kanye West was on a roll at the Grammys, Feb. 8 and it didn’t stop with him pretending to steal the mic from Beck after he won Album of the Year. Kanye and Kim Kardashian went to an after party hosted by E! and he not only made everyone take their mic flags off but he slammed Beck and started talking about why the Kardashians are famous in the first place.
Kanye West: Did He Diss Kim & Khloe Kardashian Right In Front of Them?
This is what Kanye said at the E! after party: “The Kardashians wouldn’t be famous if beauty wasn’t important.”
Wait, so you mean that Kim and her sisters aren’t scholars? Okay, we are joking but Kanye’s rant not only was unnecessary but hurtful on a lot of levels. Then he went on to say that the Grammys don’t appreciate real music and talented artists.
Kanye Slams The Grammys For Not Wanting ‘Real Artists’
Here’s what happened — Beck won Album of the Year and it really seemed to upset Kanye. He jokingly went on stage and pretended to almost pull a 2009 Taylor Swift moment when he stole the mic from her after her big win at the MTV VMAs. But even though we thought he was just being funny, it turns out that he was upset that Beck beat out Beyonce and he slammed him and the Grammys at the E! after party:
“The Grammys, if they want real artists to come back, they need to stop playing with us,” he ranted. “We ain’t gonna play with them no more. Flawless, Beyoncé video, and Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé. And at this point, we tired of it because 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 Beyoncé album, they feel like it takes them to another place, then they do this whole promotional event that, they’ll run the music over somebody’s speech, the artist, because they wanted commercial advertising.”
HollywoodLifers, should the Kardashian’s be offended?
