Suckhole Who Goes By The Nickname Yeezy Seeks Attention

I had a good laugh at some Grammy reports this morning.

Of course, I don't watch the Grammys.  They've never been valid in the first place.  I've known that since I was about 12.  Here's the clip in short:

Kanye West on Beck's Grammy: 'He Should've Given His Award to Beyonce'
Beck's Morning Phase was named Album of the Year, a category in which the now 44-year-old veteran of the alt-rock scene topped the likes of Pharrell, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Beyonce. And, to give everyone a dose of deja vu, Yeezy went up to the stage, making everyone (including Jay Z and Bey) freak out about whether he was going to pull a "Kanye" again.

He didn't, and everyone laughed it off. But when the rapper stopped by the E! After Party, he definitely didn't hold back and made it very clear that his little antic tonight was not just for fun, and said that Beck should have given his award to Beyonce.

"I don't know what he said, all I know is if the Grammys want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us. We ain't gonna play with them no more....Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyonce, and at this point, we tired of it," 'Ye began to say with his usual intensity.
"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 and we as musicians have to inspire people who go to work every day and they listen to that Beyonce album and they feel like it takes them to another place."

He continued, "Then they do this whole promotional event, they'll run the music over somebody's speech, the artist, because they want commercial advertising. Like, no, we not playing with them no more. By the way, 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 I am here to fight for creativity. That's the reason why I didn't say anything tonight. But you all know what it meant when 'Ye walks on the stage.

Kanye's pretty shit to begin with, so I had a good laugh at his "diminishing the art and not respecting the craft".  Pot calling a Kettle black?

Beyonce's no better.  Maybe if the Grammys renamed themselves to the Lightweight Awards, he might have a point: Beyonce lacks artistry.  While I'm not a Beck fan by any stretch, his stuff does have a lot more substance than any pop CD.  And Beck's been doing well when Kanye was trying to make it through High School.

Kanye may be right about one thing when he said: "...and they listen to that Beyonce album and they feel like it takes them to another place".  He's right: it takes me right to the bathroom.

Kanye: take note.  Just because you're vocal and insecure doesn't make your opinion any more (or just plain) valid.  You're not a real artist, so really you can't comment.  Your producer has all the "brains" in that lousy Pop you "make", or is it that white "R & B" that doesn't have any Blues or Rhythm in it anymore?

And you brought up that you have a clothing line?  OK, thanks for mentioning that, Pussy.  Could you be any less of a man?

Oh, and you're not a musician and you'll never be musically credible.  Musically, you're a complete failure and your lack of creativity makes Nickleback look like geniuses.  We all know what it means when 'Ye walks on the stage.  It means someone's not getting enough attention.

You can go cry now, OK, Suckie?

So let's see, the Grammies are meaningless and Kanye and Beyonce are meaningless.  Why the fuss?  If the Grammies really did want artists to keep coming back, they should drop most of the Rap and R&B categories since Rap hasn't done anything in new and/or interesting in 20 years and it's just as shitty as New Country.

Message for the Kids: Musicians don't have to "inspire" people.  Musicians play instruments and make music.  That's lost on people like Kanye, who actually look at the Grammys as some form of validation.  A musician's "job" isn't to inspire people, it's to do the job well and play their instrument the best they can.  Anything else people read into it is their own baggage.  Play for yourself.
