My favourite part of the Grammys this year had to be when Kanye was so self-aware that he pulled a Kanye by jokingly bum rushing the stage when Beck won Album of the Year over his fave gal pal Bey, à la the VMAs circa-2009. Although Ye didn’t actually take the mic and rant on stage, he was sure to save the rant til after the show, at which point he said that “Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyonce.”
Beck seemed unfazed by it all, “I was just so excited he was coming up. He deserves to be on stage as much as anybody,” the Grammy winner said of Yeezy’s stage storm. “How many great records has he put out in the last five years right?” Right.
“You can’t please everybody, man. I still love him and think he’s genius. I aspire to do what he does,” he added.
