Kanye Wants Beyonce to win Grammys

KanyeKanye West clearly showed that he didn’t like Beck winning the award for the Album of the year at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards which took place on Sunday night (February 8). Kanye wanted the award to be conferred to Beyonce.
The ‘Love Lockdown’ rapper went to stage and started mimicking his act during the 2009 MTV Music Awards when he opposed Taylor Swift when she won the award for Best Female Video by overcoming Queen Bey.
West said to E! News, “I don’t even 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.”
He added, “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. Then they do this whole promotional event… and they’re running 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.”
