    Are you serious with that headline right now?

  • Jess

    Well THAT makes me feel old…

  • shoes4life

    Shame today everyone is so use to trash as music that they don’t know who or remember real music artist. Rock on Beck!

    Too many black people in media are so classless, from last week’s SuperBowl to today’s Grammy.
    Really they thought Beonce was going to win Album of the Year, musicians are going to give someone who has 5 to 6 writers and producers on each song, something made in a studio and the album was crap, that’s why Katy Perry win never win.

    If it wasn’t Beck it would have gone to Ed Sheean or Sam Smith, who both have a amazing albums with numerous hits , unlike Beyonce , who can’t even sing , what was that at the end , just wobbly voice pretending it’s singing.

  • Sasha

    Who’s beck? What a moron.

  • Lisa

    I am so glad Beck received a an award tonight he is a great artist.

  • Lisa

    What does black people have to do with it?

  • devvv

    Firstly, black people weren’t the only one’s asking who Beck was. People who listen to Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith are teenage girls, who don’t care about someone like Beck who is old enough to be their father. Secondly, YOU may not like Beyonce’s music or style but saying that she can’t seem makes you look dumb. Denying her talent is bitterness on your part. Lastly, even if she didn’t win Album of the Year, she’s WON more Grammy’s than Beck’s been nominated for. She has talent, class, and money. At the end of the day, you’re talking about her “wobbly voice”, while she’s selling albums, touring, and traveling the world. Funny how life works out, huh?

    it would do Kanye good to stay away from the Grammys for another 6 years…

  • CCEkeke

    WOW….so the young’ns need a Beck primer? REALLY??!

  • Rocco

    WTF? MEET the Grammy winner? Beck has been around for a couple of decades and has been producing awesome music…just not as mainstream as the other idiots at the Grammys.

  • 1MzLiz

    Sorry devvv, I’m far from a teenager and really like Ed Sheeran. In fact, I thought his performance was the high spot of a very poor show.

  • Tammy

    Who in The HELL is Beck? I’m confused. He’s the only person I didn’t kno in the category. Soooo….how did he win? He’s NOT internationally known. Grammy’s SUCK!

  • Tammy

    Well…I’ve never heard of his “awesome” music? Lol. Smmfh!

  • @Tammy

    You say you’ve never heard of Beck’s music. That makes you particularly unqualified to be talking about this situation, don’t you think? Or do you just believe what the people you follow on Twitter tell you to?

  • Rocco

    That’s your loss. A whole generation of people did grow up listening to Beck…at least the ones with good taste in music. He’s not mainstream, thankfully. And how old are you? That could have something to do with it.

  • Rocco

    You’re either 12 or 60 years old

  • juvus

    You are under 25 so I forgive you.

    Some kids are asking who the hell is that white guy in the new Rihanna video as well. XD

    15 years from now some kid just like you and is going to write who the hell is beyonce? The circle of life.
