The rapper who crashed Beck's Grammy acceptance speech while he went to receive Best Album of the Year award, says he was not joking and the award should have gone to Beyonce.
Kanye's 'Kanye' stunt at the Grammy Awards 2015, reminiscent of his VMA moment with Taylor Swift in 2009, was thought to be a joke initially but the rapper said he was serious as Beyonce not Beck should have won the trophy.
"Beck knows that Beyonce should have won - you know that," West said. Asked if he'd ever heard of Beck before the Grammy awards show, he said, "Come on, man, I love Beck. But he ain't have Album of the Year."
West nearly crashed Beck's acceptance speech after his 'Morning Phase' won the coveted Album of the Year Award over other albums by Beyonce, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran and Pharrell Williams.
Singer Shirley Manson has blasted West for his stunt and said "You Make Yourself Look Small and Petty and Spoilt".
Beck on the other side was surprised over his win and when asked about Kanye's crashing the stage stint, humbly replied Showing respect for the 21 time Grammy winner, Kanye West, the musician told US Weekly, "I was just so excited he was coming up. He deserves to be on stage as much as anybody. How many great records has he put out in the last five years right?"
When asked whether Beyonce should have won, Beck said, "Absolutely. I thought she was going to win. Come on she's Beyonce!" Well we too could see his surprised face when his name was announced.
