*Rock singer Shirley Manson couldn’t let Kanye West get away with his Beck rant without a rant of her own against the rapper.
The Scottish lead singer of the band Garbage chose Facebook to address Kanye directly after the artist told E! News that Beyonce should have beaten Beck in the Best Album category at the Grammys, that Beck should have given his award to her, and that the Grammys has “disrespected artistry” by snubbing Bey.
Well, Manson exploded on Facebook:
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.
