Kanye West Apologizes to Beck for 'Artistry' Comments, Will Collaborate with Taylor Swift!

Kanye West Apologizes to Beck for 'Artistry' Comments, Will Collaborate with Taylor Swift!

Kanye West went on On the Air with Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday morning (February 11) and explained what actually happened at the 2015 Grammys – and offered some clarifications on his thoughts on Beck.

“Well first of all, Beck is one of the nicest guys and one of the most respected musicians in the game. So, there’s nothing that I will want to do as a fellow musician to disrespect him in any way,” Kanye said on the air. “And the weird thing is like, and I don’t feel like I have the right to take away from people’s moments, but the reality of it is – and case in point by who came up to me right afterwards – is it’s almost like a chiropractor. You know, you just get a little crook out like, ‘Wow, this crook has been there!’ It’s just a little jolt of truth, right? And then you know, everyone feels better after the fact, or everyone is way more famous after the fact, or everyone sells way more albums after the fact, and then Kanye just goes on being an a**hole to everyone.”

He also offered an apology: “And when I said that thing about respect artistry, I think it came off the wrong way, and that was a mis-wording on my part because obviously Beck is one the most respected artists and respects artistry.”

Kanye also announced that him and Taylor Swift want to collaborate!

“Yeah, she wants to get in the studio and we’re definitely going to go in. Any artist with an amazing point of view, perspective, fan base, I’m down to get in the studio and work. I don’t discriminate, I don’t have an elitism of music because of like how many Grammys or you know, the amount of ratings you get on an album. I think that everyone loves music whether they love hip-hop, alternative, country, and if I could be involved in giving people any type of energy, advice in the studio, whether you’re Beyonce, whether you’re Taylor Swift, whether you’re Jay Z, whether you’re Beck, whoever, and they can be reciprocal with that, I’d like to be involved with that,” Kanye added.

“You know, I felt like just the whole Grammys, right when that happened, everybody was looking at me and then people started screaming, “Kanye! Kanye! Go do it!” Ok, that didn’t really happen, these were voices in my head. So the voices in my head told me go and then I just walked up like halfway up the stage. You know, what I really wanted to do is just joke around about what had happened before, but I just really didn’t want to take away from Beck’s moment or the time he’s having to talk because you know the Grammys, they play music really quick no matter who you are and everything. So I didn’t want anything to take away from his screen time. So I just walked back down because you know, it was kind of a joke like the Grammys themselves.

    ‘Taylor Swift came up to me right afterward, literally right afterwards and tells me I should of went on stage’ – Kanye West

  • Gerard Butthole

    This is what this black fool does for attention, since he can’t let his “art” speak for itself. There is no actual talent here. It is all based on getting attention in order to stay in the limelight. We are living in an age of mediocrity. As for Swift, oh, now she’s best bud with this asshole? She is a cunt to collaborate with him. But she is yet another one who artistically has nothing to offer. These celebs are all about marketing and publicity. Talent does not enter the equation.

  • MimiB

    He’s such a jerk!

    “This is what this black fool does for attention..”

    Fuck off racist.

  • Michelle

    Wow dumb idiot Kanye is apologizing? I’m shocked! Guess after his rep and Kim and John Legend and prob other sensible friends showed him sense, not to mention how this recent dumb rant about Beck could ruin his career, he came of his high horse and apologized. What a disgrace Kanye is. Thought marriage and a baby would’ve changed him for the better.

  • AnitaC24

    Hmm, so much for this knucklehead’s convictions about artistry and respect…

  • Gerard Butthole

    Suck my ass, fag.

  • Gerard Butthole

    He is so fucking physically ugly, too. Extremely ugly black man.

  • Jay

    He’s a troll. Like literally a troll. He’s on every page calling ppl bitches, whores, c**** etc.
    Doubt he’s racist just wants to get a rise out of people. On every page he says hateful things, every page. Seems to be how he spends his day. I’m to scared to click on his profile and see his past post. Not trying to be mean but you can tell he has a real problem. Don’t respond, it drives trolls crazy.

  • The 80s

    best comment ever.

  • Dylan2

    I wish someone, anyone, would knock this arrogant, ego-maniacal prick on his ass. His apologies are empty and not sincere. And there are never any real repercussions to his actions. Why is he allowed on stage when someone else is accepting an award? Security should have intervened and Beck should have told him to fu&ck off. But no one does anything. Since when is this idiot untouchable?

  • PeterPeckerPork

    well he does make many good and valid points just bc he does not go along with all you sheep who are so easily programmed by the media. give you people something that looks and tastes sweet and you bite on the sheet right away and suck it right down. and when someone has a different opinion and says your candy ain’t do dandy you cry.

  • Gerard Butthole

    I call ‘em as I see ‘em, fatty. Truth hurts. Now, go finish that box of bon-bons, fat-ass.

  • Lisa

    I guess he feeling the heat from people. That he was stupid for saying Beck did not deserve the Grammy.

  • Jeff

    He’s ridiculous. Can’t he and his porn star wife just go away? Now Kim is a true artist and has such an incredilbe personality. WTF do they talk about when they are alone?

  • Jenny from the flop

    Was that English? I didn’t understand at all what he was trying to say. His rants are always tiresome

  • JLover

    I cannot stand this arse!

  • Von

    If she works with she lost me a fan .

  • smmy33

    Taylor Swift not going do jack shit with him.

    That what parisites like Kanye do , leech on to other more popular people.
    Now he wants to link his name to her .

    Hope Taylor Swift learns her lesson, she shouldn’t have greeted him in public ..

    Gave him a in to now pretend it was more then just friendly greeting .

  • smmy33

    @Jay sit down ….anytime Beyonce , Rihanna , Kanye have articles you post stupid crap to defend and praise them

    Swift wasn’t even in the audience she had already left.

    When off his meds Kanye rushed to the stage and back he passes were she was seating front row and her seat is empty in the videos .

    The same voices in his head that told him to rush the stage told him that he and Swift will work together and that she told him ” right after” he should gone on the on stage .

    After this interview there is no doubt Kanye West is mentally disturbed.

  • Sim

    JJ has some serious problems against Taylor Swift
    Any excuse to do a negative story about her and then makes it into a headline.

    All the crazy ranting Kanye West did in this interview JJ makes the asinine claims Kanye make about Taylor Swift into the story and headline.

    Then Headlines them as if they were facts instead Kanye’s crazy delusions.

    It isn’t only about hits or else you won’t have the ” no child policy” this site takes such pride in.

  • VanityInsecurity

    all I hope for is Swift not to collab with this moron. get away from him Taylor!

  • L’Opinion de MyMy

    He’s a douche and i don’t believe ONE WORDS he say ! The damage is done KANYE ! Don’t try … It’s too late !

  • L’Opinion de MyMy

    YA !!!! mental health big check up to do !

  • Tanya

    Whatever, we still know your true feelings about the situation, only now you want to apologise for it? How about keeping your mouth shut from the beginning?

  • Lolas West Hollywood

    Nice back tracking. Using Kims friendship with Ryan Seacrest to get an interview to trying and smooth this over. Taylor Swift did NOT tell him he should have gotten up and I have to imagine any talk of her telling him she would like to work with him is like .. ya’ “the check is in the mail”. Not buying it Kayne.

  • liz

    He’s really been acting like a moron lately. He talks a lot of nonsense, always trying to throw in big words, but it never sounds coherent. In fact, the way his comments read when they are transcribed highlights just how unintelligent he really is.
    What the fuck was he talking about when he brought up chiropractors? I feel like he has the brain of a schizophrenic or something.

  • liz

    I do not like saying nasty things about people, and I felt really bad in writing the above comment. It’s just that I have very little tolerance for people who are quick to insult others and feel no remorse for it. To this day, he STILL believes that he did the right thing by doing what he did to Taylor Swift. He is so delusional (again, schizophrenic??) that he thinks he was doing everyone a favor by trying to humiliate another artist. He only HALF apologizes, but even in his apologies, there is a lot of smugness and lack of sincerity.

  • charmie14

    He got exactly what he was looking for.. free publicity. Beck is a professional. Dragging it on with the “apologizes”… more publicity.

  • Dell

    This man/boy is so disillusioned by own his sense of importance, that he really believes he can justify his behavior. He is such a puppett wanting to please his master………….

  • suzybel

    Idiot is just digging a bigger hole for himself with the backtracking and phony apologies. He realizes everyone thinks he’s an *sshole for what he did, now he’s trying to justify his stupid antics.

  • crazyassmom

    “..He’s really been acting like a moron lately…”
    He’s not acting. 😒
