Kanye West ‘does a Kanye’ as he interrupts Beck on stage

Kanye West was at it again…taking to the stage to protest against Grammy’s choice of a winner for Best Album.

Kanye’s infamous storming of the stage when Taylor Swift beat Beyonce back in 2009 is a moment to be remembered – all be it for the wrong reasons – and it looked like he was about to repeat that move at last night’s Grammy Awards ceremony.

Kanye got up from his seat and took to the stage as Beck collected his Best Album Grammy Award, beating Beyonce to the gong.

Prince was on stage and the great and good of the music world appeared entranced as they listened to the music legend present the award for Album of the Year.

“Like books and black lives, albums still matter – tonight and always,” he said, before announcing that Beck had won the prize for his record Morning Phase.

But, as Beck collected his award and walked up to the microphone, Kanye also walked onto the stage.

The audience gasped and jeered in horror, however instead of ranting, Kanye chose to walk back off, laughing as he went.

Beyonce could be seen to say “oh no, not again, no” while uncomfortably laughing at the rappers stunt.


Thankfully everyone seen the funny side of it, however footage of the rapper filmed at a Grammys after-party suggests that he might not have been joking after all.

“If the Grammys want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us,” he told E! Television’s After Party show.

“Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé, and at this point, we’re tired of it.

“Because 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.”

He added that he had decided not to say anything on stage because, “I got my wife, my daughter and my clothing line, so I’m not going to do nothing to put my daughter at risk,” but insisted that it was his job to “fight for creativity”.
