Who knew Kanye had such a sense of humor?
Kanye West was FourFiveSeconds from wildin’ at the Grammys last night when Beyonce lost the album of the year award to Beck. The rapper almost pulled his famous VMA move as the musician took to the stage to accept his gong.
Yeezy being Yeezy, crashed Beck’s big moment by hitting the stage out of nowhere, looking like he was ready to protest. But Kanye soon realized that stealing Taylor Swift’s spotlight in 2009 was one time too many and so decided to leave the stage.
Chill guys, it was all in good humor. Kanye was obviously making fun of himself. Just look at him laughing with Kim as he returned to his seat.
After his prank, Kanye was pretty angry about the whole situation. He later spoke during E!’s after-show claiming that “Beck should have given his award to Beyonce”.
In full, he ranted,
“I don’t even know what [Beck] said. I just know that, the Grammys, if they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us. We aren’t going to play with them no more. ‘Flawless.’ Beyoncé’s video. And Beck needs to respect artistry, he should have given his award to Beyoncé. At this point, we tired of it. 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. We, as musicians, have to inspire people who go to work every day, and they listen to that Beyoncé album, and they feel like it takes them to a different place. And then they do this promotional event, and they’ll run the music over somebody’s speech, the artist, because they want commercial advertising. We aren’t playing with them anymore. And by the way, I got my wife, my daughter, and I got my clothing line, so I’m not going to do nothing that would put my daughter at risk, but I am here to fight for creativity. That’s why I didn’t say anything tonight, but you all knew what it meant when ‘Ye stepped on that stage.”
We really wish we could have seen Taylor’s face at that moment. But we did get a glimpse of Jay-Z and Beyonce who were in fits of laughter…
Jay’s reaction was literally the highlight of the night. That smile though.
And in case you were wondering, it looks like the Kanye/Taylor feud has officially ended. The two were all smiles as they spoke to eachother and posed for the cameras. All has been forgiven, at long last.
Oh, and by the way, call us ignorant but we still don’t know who Beck is…
