Kanye Acted Exactly Like Kanye At The Grammys

With his wife’s vagina overtaking the Internet (I’m literally going to need a bib for all this SEO.) the Grammys were Kanye’s time to shine if the definition of shine means acting like a giant fucking baby after being surprisingly cool the whole night even while pretending to interrupt Beck’s speech. For fuck’s sake, the man actually smiled. Smiled. In a picture. Despite castles. And then E! let him have a microphone after the show where Kanye made it abundantly clear he wasn’t joking after ripping E!’s logo off the microphone in front of Kim Kardashian’s nervous smiling face:

“I don’t know what he said, all I know is if the Grammys want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us. We ain’t gonna play with them no more. ‘Flawless,’ Beyoncé video. Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé, and at this point, we tired of it,” ‘Ye began to say with his usual intensity.
“Because what happens is, when you keep on diminishing art and not respecting the craft and smacking people in the 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 Beyoncé album and they feel like it takes them to another place.”
He continued, “Then they do this whole promotional event, they’ll run the music over somebody’s speech, the artist, because they want commercial advertising. Like, no, we not playing with them no more. By the way, I got my wife, my daughter and my clothing line, so I’m not going to 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 walks on the stage.

As for Beck, his Scientology programming gave him the tools to brush the whole thing off because “centuries from now I’ll be a race car driver in space!” I like to believe he thought. Via Us Weekly:

“I was just so excited he was coming up. He deserves to be on stage as much as anybody,” Beck said when asked how he felt about West crashing the stage. “How many great records has he put out in the last five years right?”
Even though he said Beyonce should have won? “Absolutely,” replied the humble musician. “I thought she was going to win. Come on, she’s Beyonce!”
And what about his diss that Beyonce is true artistry, and you’re not? “You can’t please everybody, man,” he replied. “I still love him and think he’s genius. I aspire to do what he does.”

“Wow, thanks for the great quotes, Beck.”
“No, thank you.” *stretches out arms, closes eyes*
“What are you doing?”
“Levitating out of the room for a sweet exit. Am I almost through the ceiling?”
“You’re still on the floor.”
“Or is the floor no longer the floor? It’s the sky.”
“It’s the floor.”
Dammit.”
