Days after storming the Grammy stage to ruin Beck’s acceptance speech after he won Album of the Year, Kanye went on the Ryan Seacrest radio show to explain his action. But instead of apologizing, Kanye promised to boycott the Grammys until they start to respect creativity..
“You know, I felt like just the whole Grammys, right when that happened, everybody was looking at me and then people started screaming, ”Kanye! Kanye! Go do it!'”. Ok, that didn’t really happen, these were voices in my head. 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 because you know the Grammys, they play music really quick no matter who you are and everything. So I just walked back down because you know, it was kind of a joke like the Grammys themselves.’
First of all Beck is one of the nicest guys and one of the most respected musicians in the game. So, there’s nothing that I will want to do as a fellow musician to disrespect him in any way.’
‘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? And then you know, 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 bumhole to everyone.’
