The Beyhive officially has a new president, and his name is Kanye West!
Beyoncé fans were shattered on Sunday night when she lost the Grammy gold for album of the year to rocker Beck. But while they fumed over social media or ranted at their watch parties, Mr. West decided to take matters into his own hands.
Yeezy faked as though he was going to walk on stage as Beck was preparing to give his acceptance speech -- a hilarious nod to his iconic stage crashing of Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards when she also beat out Queen Bey.
However, his antics didn’t stop there! While speaking to E! News at their Grammys after-party, Ye made a point to voice his frustration over Bey’s loss to Beck. "I don't know what he said, all I know is if the Grammys want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us,” West said. “We ain't gonna play with them no more. Flawless, Beyoncé video. Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé, and at this point, we tired of it."
He continued, "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 and they feel like it takes them to another place."
But West admitted that it was his concern about his and Kim Kardashian’s daughter, North West, that kept him from speaking out on stage. “I got my wife, my daughter and my clothing line, so I'm not going to do nothing to put my daughter at risk but I am here to fight for creativity. That's the reason why I didn't say anything tonight. But you all know what it meant when 'Ye walks on the stage."
Beck luckily didn’t seem too concerned by West’s comments, though. He encouraged West to come back on stage while he was accepting his award. And speaking to Us Weekly after the show, Beck said that he still respects Yeezy and that he didn’t even expect to win. "I thought she was going to win. Come on, she's Beyoncé!" Beck said. "You can't please everybody, man. I still love him and think he's genius. I aspire to do what he does." Do you agree with Kanye that Beyoncé should have won album of the year at the Grammys?
