Kanye West: Beck ‘Should Have Given His Award to Beyonce’
By Kevin Rutherford
The GRAMMYs are over but Kanye West ain’t done yet.
On the aftershow telecast on E!, the rapper made a bold declaration as his wife Kim Kardashian stood beside him: “The Kardashians should have a percentage of E!”
The moment was captured in a Vine by Complex that has been widely circulated since.
But that wasn’t all: in another clip from the show, West decided to present another hot take to the fine viewers of E!: that Beck, who scored Album of the Year for Morning Phase, should give his award to Beyonce, who was nominated for her self-titled release.
Of course, that followed West jumping onstage after Beck was announced the winner, emulating his famed stage-rushing at the VMAs a few years ago when Taylor Swift’s video won over, again, Beyonce’s, but instead pulled away at the last second. Many took it as a joke, but after his comments on E!, it certainly wouldn’t be surprising if there were something else there.
West performed twice at the GRAMMYs, first with his rendition of his song “Only One” and then again with Rihanna and Paul McCartney for “FourFiveSeconds.”
