Kanye West New Comments: I “Love” Beck, But Beyonce’s Better
After dissing Beck’s Grammys win in Los Angeles, Kanye West flew across the country and landed in New York, where he was slightly more flattering toward the Album of the Year winner. West’s newest comments came to paparazzi, waiting for him at the airport.
As Gossip Cop reported, after nearly interrupting Beck’s acceptance speech on stage, West went off on a rant while appearing on E! following the ceremony, declaring, “Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé.”
At the airport, a cameraman asked, “Kanye, when you said Beck needs to respect artistry, are you implying he’s not an artist?” West then clarified his comments.
“No, I wasn’t saying Beck, I was saying the Grammys!” said West. “Beck knows that Beyonce should have won.” When another paparazzo asked, “Had you ever heard of Beck before yesterday?” West replied, “Come on, man, I love Beck. But he ain’t have Album of the Year.”
Beck, for his part, took a conciliatory and humble tone when reporters asked him about the situation after Sunday’s awards. “Absolutely I thought she was going to win. Come on, she’s Beyonce!” said Beck. As for West’s apparent diss, he said, “You can’t please everybody, man. I still love him and think he’s genius. I aspire to do what he does.” What do you think of West’s latest remarks?
