Shirley Manson To Kanye West: ‘You’re A Complete Twat’

Because the Internet is a beautiful flower just waiting to open up for you when you least suspect, Shirley Manson, one of my top crushes from the late 90s/early 2000s just wrote an open letter to Kanye West calling him “spoilt” and a “complete twat” over the shit he pulled with Beck at the Grammys. So I’m going to defer to the lady while I try and articulate my thoughts about Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe because my priorities are the tits bambingo.

Dear Kanye West

It is YOU who is so busy disrespecting artistry.
You disrespect your own remarkable talents and more importantly you disrespect the talent, hard work and tenacity of all artists when you go so rudely and savagely after such an accomplished and humble artist like BECK.
You make yourself look small and petty and spoilt.
In attempting to reduce the importance of one great talent over another, you make a mockery of all musicians and music from every genre, including your own.
Grow up and stop throwing your toys around.
You are making yourself look like a complete twat.

Ps.I am pretty certain Beyonce doesn’t need you fighting any battles on her account. Seems like she’s got everything covered perfectly well on her own.

[Ed. Note: Pretty sure this is about Kanye, too. Just something in my gut. – SW]
