Kanye West Grammy Behavior Explained

Kanye West Grammy Behavior Explained!

What do we mean?

Today, Kanye West spoke to Ryan Seacrest about his behavior at the 2015 Grammy Awards which resulted in Wendy Williams calling him a madman.

What did West have to say for himself?

West told Seacrest, “So the voices in my head told me go and then I just walked up like halfway up the stage. You know, what I really wanted to do is just joke around about what had happened before, but I just really didn’t want to take away from Beck’s moment or the time he’s having to talk. So I just walked back down because you know, it was kind of a joke like the Grammys themselves.”

Beck is one of the nicest guys and one of the most respected musicians in the game,” West continued, explaining that, “there’s nothing that I will want to do as a fellow musician to disrespect him in any way. And the weird thing is like, and I don’t feel like I have the right to take away from people’s moments, but the reality of it is — and case in point by who came up to me right afterwards —- is it’s almost like a chiropractor. You know, you just get a little crook out like, ‘Wow, this crook has been there!’ It’s just a little jolt of truth, right?”

West continued, stating that, “everyone feels better after the fact, or everyone is way more famous after the fact, or everyone sells way more albums after the fact, and then Kanye just goes on being an asshole to everyone.”

And what about West’s comments that Beck should give his Grammy to Beyonce? West clarified what he meant, explaining that, “I think it came off the wrong way, and that was a mis-wording on my part because obviously Beck is one the most respected artists and respects artistry. But I felt — and this is my opinion and he’s his own man and he’s not wrong … but I felt that even though the Grammys some times gives awards to people who you wouldn’t think should win in the category, as a respect to artists, we mention the other artist’s name in our speech. And that was the point I was making about it. There’s like many of times I gave other people my award, literally made them come up onstage. Maroon 5, when they won best new artist, [Adam Levine] mentioned me because it was the ‘College Dropout’ and [it had] 10 nominations and all that.”

West also revealed that he doesn’t believe the “too respectful” Beyonce would comment on this herself, elaborating that, “because she is so successful, a lot of times, success disables your ability to communicate exactly what the fuck you want to say!

West still wasn’t done, as he next addressed his comments after the Grammy’s to E, specifically saying, “I sat there and I kind of let that [smolder] and I was asked my opinion and I was given a platform. And when given a platform, it’s very hard as we know — and I’m going to talk in third person like I’m a crazy person — but it’s very hard for Kanye West to not be very true and vocal to what he feels. You know, it’s like people take the Grammys for granted in a way because of the commercials, because a lot of the musicians are very rich and everything, but this is our Super Bowl. You know, and someone’s got to be mad that [Marshawn Lynch] didn’t get the ball.”

West wrapped with saying, “It’s not a black or white thing at all. It’s not me always standing up for a black artist. I feel that racism is a distraction to humanity. We are one race. We are the human race, period.”

Singer Shirley Manson spoke out about West earlier this week in a letter to him, calling him a complete twat.
