Kanye West Wasn’t Joking, Says ‘Beck Needs To Respect Artistry And Should’ve Given His Award to Beyonce’

It appears Kanye West wasn’t joking when he nearly crashed the stage during Beck’s album of the year speech last night at the Grammys.

During an interview at E!’s after party show, Kanye went full Kanye and ripped both the Grammys and Beck.

“I just know that the Grammys, if they want real artists, to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us. We ain’t gonna play with them no more,””And Beck needs to respect artistry and he should’ve given his award to Beyonce.”Because when you keep on diminishing art and not respecting the craft and smacking people in their 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 Beyonce album and they feel like it takes them to another place.”

Kanye went on to say that the only reason he didn’t finish interrupting Beck on stage was in consideration of his daughter North.

I’m not gonna 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 walked out on that stage!”

For a moment last night Kanye seemed likable for once but it turns out he’s still the same egomaniacal douchebag that walked up the stage during the 2009 VMA’s.
