During the 2015 Grammy awards, Kanye West pretended to rush the stage when Beck won the Record of the Year award over Beyonce. West had previously done this when Taylor Swift had beaten Beyonce in the category a few years ago.
When beginning to rush the stage, West made a motion with his hands to make it seem like he was just kidding.
However, after the Grammy’s, West spoke to E! to make it clear he was NOT kidding.
“I don’t even know what [Beck] said. I just know that, the Grammys, if they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us,” West told the network.
He continued ranting, stating,” We aren’t going to play with them no more. Beck needs to respect artistry, he should have given his award to Beyonce. At this point, we tired of it. 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.”
