“When you keep on diminishing art and not respecting the craft and smacking people in the face

So says the man who is married to Kim Kardashian, who is famous simply for being famous, and who's family, through their reality TV series, has possibly done more to "not respecting the craft" of TV in America than any other people on earth. What a hypocrite. And an angry one at that.

How embarrassing West is for West. It must be hard to suffer the humiliation of being himself.

Surely anyone criticizing West is a racist..... A person who doesn't care about black people.

Someone on twitter was pointing out that Beck plays 14 different instruments but Beyonce needs 4 song writers for one song. So yeah... Saying Beck isn't artsy. The number of artists still making killers records for as long as beck has is WELL into the double digits now, if not the low dozens.

Kanye West is a Beyonce leg humping joke! Its rumored that he gets really high or drunk or both before these award ceremonies...

“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,”

It actually wasn't a standout year for music. I have heard all of the albums except Beck's and all of the albums had good songs but also fillers. Beck is extremely talented and puts his all into his music as does all of the other artists. I heard Beck agreed with Kanye about Beyonce which shows what a humble person he is. Kanye has 21 grammys. He needs to shut up and enjoys what many only dream of.

Getting tired of watching the same people over and over gain. Same with movie scene. It's one gigantic monopoly. Where are all the indie artists? Need to get rid of Hollywood & MTV types.

Who takes that fool seriously anyway?

Another Kayne Witless publicity stunt, a full on recording academy desperate attempt to hype the ratings.

As Beck collected his trophy, West walked onstage and abruptly turned around, leaving the confused-looking winner at the microphone for his thank you speech.

Too embarrassed to pull off a repeat of 2009?

One of a sad reality in contemporary American culture with false image and without substance; however, they are everywhere on prime time, these days.

I think he's just slowly trying to get perma-banned from all the awards, one by one.

The Grammy's need to file an indefinite Restraining Order on Kanye West and charge him with Tresspassing next time he comes within 100 Feet near The Grammy's.

They can't afford to have that Moron interrupt the show next year.

Besides Beyoncé Knowles (even though she was awarded a Grammy) is not entitled to a Grammy just because she releases a Single or an Album.

Beck is a highly respected artist and his album was very good and he along with Sam Smith both deserved their Awards.

You've been Kanyed!!

Beck's fault though. He should have grabbed his award and took off. Only then would Kanye be ousted from future events.

Instead the awards ceremony got more free publicity. So yeah, they knew Kanye would do something like this. It was all part of the plan.

Think about it. Kanye and Kim K are in the business of reality tv. This is exactly what they want to do.

Still.... There is one thing though. Have you heard that album? Are you really saying this was the best album of 2014 ????

And as far as this Mr West goes, don't forget, this is first of all a business and the Grammys are a huge PR exercise. Who earned more, the company that owns Beck... or the one that owns Beyonce? And which of these companies is Mr West affiliated to? As a wise man said: "There is no such thing as bad publicity!"

Beck should have slammed Kanye on the stage.

Seriously... I know the Academy needs this guy to drum up support and play on stage, but have the nuts to BAN this guy from now on until he starts behaving (that is, ban him permanently). He gave the finger AND almost ruined Beck's award. West is a self-aggrandizing ego-maniac, and you can see that in EVERYTHING he does, from this and with Taylor Swift's award, to him stopping his performances at concerts because not everyone will stand up (and later being made the fool when it's pointed out the guy who won't stand is in a wheel-chair!), etc. Go to the SouthParkStudios . com website and watch the free streamed episodes after typing in the keywords Kanye West in the search, and check out the episodes. They are hilarious and spot on.

“Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyonce,” he said.

I had to read this twice, Kanye West suggesting Beck gives his award to Beyonce, how can he gave the gaul to think that Beck should listen to his opinion and give a well deserved award to a lesser musician. Not a big beck fan but the man knows music and unlike Kayne and Beyonce writes his own stuff and plays a heap of instruments, plus he mentioned "artistry" don't make me laugh!

Man Kanye really likes Beyonce, this is really disrespectful towards Beck though he's a big figure in the music world and he's been around longer than Beyonce

Kanye West is obsession with Beyonce. This guy is Grammy Joker.

turbotsat: Too embarrassed to pull off a repeat of 2009?

On second thought, and from memory of the 2009 incident, it is all just probably bad acting: skits put on and scripted by the Grammy producers. Cannot really blame Kanye too much, except to say he could have refused it and should have, if so.

I remember 10 years ago, Kanye came to our studio to cut an album, were a total of 3 days in the studio, the guy had BBQ flown in from a different state, same day service and I mean ribs, chicken, pork, the best meat that you can get in BBQ and the guy was so selfish, ate very little, him and his producer and he never offered his security staff, the engineers or anyone else that was around him some food, most of his staff didn't eat anything all day and he threw away about 90% of all the food, does he have to do that, No, of course not. But he is so unappreciative, selfish jerk towards EVERYONE and thinks ONLY about himself. The other reason why Kanye can be such a jerk is, you have to see his bodyguards to understand, why no one has ever tried to get close enough to punch his lights out. Kanye is NOT that dumb to say something, knowing that someone could knock him on his tiny A**!

Hampy oh how wrong you are. The man took a wife that is publicly know to be on her back more than anything else. He is a ticking bomb and was like this prior to becoming somewhat famous.I gave up on him years ago. Ignore him and he and his famous?? wife may just disappear. Doubt it as the media seems to glorify and put idiots front and center.

A book of satirical cartoons seems in order.
