He almost pulled another infamous award show moment — like in 2009 when he interrupted Taylor Swift‘s award acceptance at the VMAs and said, “Imma let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time.”
Although he held back from creating another one of those moments, he was outspoken about who he believed should’ve won Album of the Year during E!’s After Party.
“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,” West said.
He added, “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.”
However, to his credit, Beck didn’t take West’s comments personal. He told People he still has love for Ye, but he can’t make anyone – Kanye included – love his work.
“You can’t please everybody. I still love him and think he’s genius. I aspire to what he does. How many great records has he put out in the last five years, right?”
