Kanye West: Beck 'Should Have Given His Award to Beyonce'

Kanye West stormed the stage at the 2015 Grammy Awards in what seemed like a joke when Beck won the award for Album of the Year, but maybe he wasn’t joking after all?

The 37-year-old rapper stopped by the E! After Show to chat with his sister-in-law, host Khloe Kardashian, and commented on his actions during the show.

“If they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us. We ain’t going to play with them no more… ‘Flawless,’ Beyonce’s video, and Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyonce,” he said. “And, at this point, we tired of it. Because what happens is that when you keep on diminishing art and not respecting the craft and smacking people in the face.”

Beyonce was nominated for the award for her self-titled album, but lost to Beck. She still picked up three other prizes during the show!

    kanye needs to get over himself. Beck is a popular artist with a long career and deserve to win just as much as any other of the nominees.

  • shoes4life

    Bumbye is an ass!

  • tjpm

    Poor Kanye at first i thought he was being funny but he is just a knucklehead ,, poor poor thing… I’m gonna buy him some Beck iTunes songs…poor thing needs to learn some music… awwwww

  • Anastatia Bagans

    Kanye is such a bigot. Get over it, beyonce sucks. He doesn’t like to see anybody white win, let’s just be honest.

  • mattyp4

    I love Beyonce but to assume Beck has no artistry is LAUGHABLE. I’m big fans of both.

  • forrest gump

    ‘kanye is a stand up comedian now?

  • Tommy Harmon

    Beyonce’s not even that good. Beck has written some great songs. Kanye…well he just plain sucks!

  • Revengefan0101

    Everyone should go buy Beck’s new album on iTunes right now.

  • lee lee

    Not really because comedians are funny.

  • Alina

    Beck needs to respect artistry? Beyonce needed 17 producers for her album while Beck needed one, himself. Beck is a real artist, not Beyonce.

  • smmy33

    Beyonce album sucked, barely one listenable song.

    Musicians aren’t going to give a Grammy for Album of the Year to studio manufactured album,
    that has committe number of people of writers and producers for each song

    She had no number one hits, and she barly sold 2 million copies since it’s release , it wasn’t even a commercial success.

    It wasn’t Beck , Ed Sheean and Sam Smith album destroys her over sexulized crap, not even a music album , really just videos of her masturbating to herself.

  • liz

    he better be FUCKING kidding, this little weasel.
    beyonce, kanye, and all these hip hop people don’t make art. they just make ghetto sounding booty shaking songs. what kanye doesn’t realize is that there are musicians out there, who unlike them, have genuine talent / can play instruments & sound great even in a stripped down setting. it’s THOSE kinds of artists that deserve to be winning every award and every category because what they practice is real “artistry.” these are the kinds of musicians that create inspiring songs which help people get through difficult times in their lives.
    kanye, jay z, beyonce, and their little rap/hip hop clique should consider themselves lucky to even be there. how they got to the levels of fame they are in, I have no clue. they have no talent, they just hide behind gimmicks, autotune, dance routines. none of them can even play ONE fucking instrument. pathetic.

  • liz

    kudos to beck, glad he won instead of the talentless ghetto people he was forced to be in the category with.

  • tiffany

    he seriously thinks that jay z beyonce and himself are the best in the industry. and dont get me wrong i LOVE beyonce. but people are in titled to their opinion on what kind of music they like and theres a lot of artist that deserve awards. taylor swift and ariana grande didnt win a grammy tonight and you dont see people throwing fits. their just grateful to be recognize. he needs to stop thinking hes better than everyone.

  • ErkanTaufiq

    yeah right! he can stand up alone, but beyonce? im not sure

  • Sim

    Kanye is simply a douche bag. Grasping at relevance and self importance.

  • ladylilarowe

    Tacky and disrespectful, just like his wife. Beyonce won for Drunk, but just because she didn’t win one award and a white artist did, he has to throw a fit. What about the year she took home 6 Grammys in 2010? People could have bum-rushed the stage to say give someone else a shot, but it goes to who deserves it! Beyonce has almost 20 Grammys and we all know she is a talented performer, but give recognition to other artists too! Kanye is a smart, creative and talented guy, but has no clue how to express himself through words. He speaks first then thinks later.

  • disqus_jFAUBXqfjy

    Ghetto music vs Real Music. At least he can play an instrument.

  • Jay

    Lol they cropped Chissy Teigan and John Legend :(((

  • Sim

    All of Beyonce’s Grammy’s have been in R&B .

    Beyonce has never won the big awards Album , Song or Record of the year…

    Because she doesn’t write her own music …and it’s CRAP music that’s forgettable ….same reason Katy Perry has never won them either .

  • Ken Johnson

    he’s just an arrogant pric who thinks only blacks make real music, i’m surprised he didn’t expect sam smith to give his grammys to beyonce also, kanye — it’s time for you to STFU, NOW

  • suzie

    Well said.

  • Jk Hapsari

    Hello??? Where have you been? Beck deserves it! He consistently creates great conceptual albums since early 90s. and he’s also a multi-instrumentalist. *sigh*

  • MlleHarmonie

    dude, shut up!

  • b-b-ba-bacon

    Ye can’t talk about anyone after he put out that trash album “Yeezus” . wouldn’t even wipe my worst enemies ass with that shit.

  • TeamBella76

    I thought I liked John Legend but he’s hanging out with that ? Must be his wife. Please someone get rid of them !

  • TeamBella76

    That’s his problem anything he’s in or likes is ART. I wish he and Beybey their little group would leave us alone !

  • Jimbo Franks

    Lemme do the Ghetto Translation. When Beck actually can garner TV attention and sell records and actually get main stream radio play or his name mentioned since the 1990s, then he deserves to even compete with all the true stars that actually sell records and keep this industry afloat.

  • ace austoom

    Just another antic for attention

  • http://notonly.ru/ Маргарита Бабовникова

    Go back to ghetto and die there.

    Grammy not about who have best marketing team.

  • http://notonly.ru/ Маргарита Бабовникова

    but 2 million copies it’s a commercial success.
    even 10 000 is real thing.

  • http://notonly.ru/ Маргарита Бабовникова

    britney have only one

  • ShakoDeka

    Kanye who?

  • mimilarue

    hmmm..Beyonce rap-hip hop..music. Are you joking right now. I didn’t know Beyonce was making hip hop and rap albums. Last time I checked she never released an hip hop and rap album since she started as a group in 1997

  • starchild

    You still at it Kanye?? Just because Beyonce can get tv attention and sell records does not mean that she deserved to win.

  • starchild

    Don’t like the truth?

  • MlleHarmonie

    i dont like your version of the “truth”

  • Sarah-Julia Karbowniczek

    considering that Beck is around since the 80s your argument is invalid.

  • Sarah-Julia Karbowniczek

    smart is a word I wouldn’t use when it comes to Kanye

  • vinner

    Kanye loves to kiss Beyonce’s ass. This clown in his idiotic costumes should be just banned from all those awards.

  • smmy33

    Just like ALL of Kanye’s & JayZ Grammy’s have been in Rap catoergies.

    Those two , especially Kanye like to bragg 17 Grammy’s ..etc
    All in rap , never the big awards and all because the Grammy’s keep rotating the same 5 or 6 rappers for nomination .

  • smmy33

    Why was he there, siting front like jackass.

    He wasn’t nominated for anything , they said it was 6 years since he performed at the Grammy’s .. They broke that to subject the audience 2 awful songs he ” sang” if you can that singing.

    They have start banning physco from award shows, no reason for him to be there.

  • lucy__luz

    hey come on kanye!! we are so tired of you already!!! U NEED TO RESPECT BECK!!!! if u think only beyonce is the best..but not US!!! tsk! tsk!

  • As

    SIT DOWN, KANYE.

  • Sweet Cheeks

    Kayne’s arse should be seated in the parking lot next year. Along with his gang of lip-synch, auto-tune so called singers.

  • Sanna Leena

    Kanye: I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me!!

  • Maria

    In other words, he’s a true musical talent. Unlike the idiot that is Kanye.

  • Mara

    ‘Disrespectful to inspiration’. Oh, Kanye.

  • bob

    kaynee another dumb American he should shut the fuck up the world does not revolve around him even though he thinks it does

  • Arrow 12

    Beyoncé needs to run far away from Kanye. He is racist and gives hip hop a bad name. The folks at the Grammys should never ever invite him back. I am so tired of him and his racist rants.
