Kanye West Blames “Voices In His Head” For Grammy Tantrum
In an interview with Ryan Seacrest on Feb. 11, Kanye blamed “the voices in his head” for cheering him on and pushing him to run up onto the stage during Beck’s Album of the Year acceptance speech. But he insisted that he in no way meant to diminish Beck’s artistry or his music achievement.
“Beck is one of the nicest guys and one of the most respected musicians in the game. So there’s nothing that I would want to do as a fellow musician to disrespect him in any way,” he said. But he also insinuated that he kind of did Beck a favor…in his own Yeezy way — and Taylor Swift actually agreed.
“The weird thing is, 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 — it’s like a chiropractor. You just get a little crook out that’s been there — just a little jolt of truth. Right? And everyone feels better AFTER the fact. Or everyone’s WAY more famous after the fact. Everyone sells WAY more albums after the fact. And then Kanye just goes on being an a**hole to everyone.
But Taylor Swift came up to me right afterwards — literally right afterwards and tells me that I should have went on stage! So this is the irony of my life.”
Hmmm…well when he’s right he’s right — at least as it pertains to Taylor. But Kanye should probably just let this topic die over the weekend.
