Kanye wasn’t pleased that Beyonce did not win a grammy for album of the year, again. This year she lost to Beck, which was a big surprise to me because Beck has been one of my favorite musicians since the early 90’s, and that usually coincides with no grammys.
Kanye said, “If they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us,” and “Beck needs to respect artistry, and he should have given his award to Beyoncé.” Seriously? Does Kanye even know who Beck is? I can’t think of many musicians who epitomize artistry more so than Beck.
Beck was seemingly unbothered by Kanye’s remarks, he said, “You can’t please everyone, man.”
