WTF, Kanye?

I didn’t watch the Grammys last night because I was too busy swooning with everyone else over Richard Armitage reading Shakespeare but I kept an eye on the goings on via Twitter and Facebook. When reports started to roll in that Kayne West interrupted Beck’s acceptance of his Best Album award I figured it was a joke because Beyoncé was also a nominee in that category. Uh, not so much a joke, as it turned out. Click the link to see gifs of the whole mess go down over at The Verge. Prince was out of frame there but I’d like to think that he growled at West and scared him off the stage. Billboard helpfully posted this morning about exactly who Beck is, though it wasn’t nearly as funny as Erin La Rosa’s education of Katy Perry fans who were thrilled that she was helping out new artist Missy Elliot last week over at Buzzfeed. Don’t even get me started on the Kanye/Paul McCartney nonsense. Seriously, people, internet? Google? Google is your friend.

Okay, so the obvious cut here would be “Loser,” right? That would be snarky, though, and I am still way too swoony to be anything but mellow so instead we’re listening to “Where It’s At.” Because Beck is indeed.

    Are there people who don’t know who Beck is? “Loser” is on my all time top 20 or 30. I guess the 90s really are over …

    The best thing I can say for Kanye West is that he deserves Kim Kardashian, and vice versa,

    i knew i picked the right Awards to watch last night for background noise while i was finishing a book 🙂 the BAFTAs were fun and Boyhood won almost unexpectedly, but only almost and it was a nice message to celebrate normality and family and love 🙂 Shrugs 🙂

    Nice song this by the way and i didn’t know it but i’ve not had anything else but a classical station on the radio for many years so i’m not up to date since erm.. many years 😉 The good stuff is bound to survive that long and will trickle down to me too eventually 🙂

      I’ve seen the red carpet from the BAFTAs but didn’t really pay attention beyond that.

      “Where It’s At” is from ODELAY which is from…1996 I think?

    I knew there was a good reason I don’t watch most award shows anymore. Great video post, thank you.

    Kanye, Kanye, Kanye. He’s in serious peril of becoming a caricature of himself at this point.
