Fresh from the Grammy Awards, Estelle says that she, in part, agrees with Kanye West, who she won a Grammy for Rap/Sung Collaboration with for “American Boy.”

Estelle’s  new album, True Romance, out February 17th should be a another hit for the singer you can always count on for a thoughtful, well-crafted hit. From American Boy to Thank You, the British export has proven she can compete in a crowded field of domestic divas.

“He’s just Kanye,” Estelle laughs. “He’s a passionate guy. I think there’s an element of truth in everything it’s just his perspective of it and people are either going to wildly agree or wildly disagree. It’s just the way he says it.”

Does Estelle herself agree with his views about “real” artists being denied a chance for awards?

“I think the Grammys are a TV show,” Estelle says. “So as a TV show it’s going to be what it is and that means controversy and things people can talk about after the fact. But there’s an element of truth to what he speaks and there’s a respect for the artistry whether it’s the Beck side or the other side. Beck is an incredible artist and he plays what he plays. Everyone has their lane and everyone should be respected in that space. It shouldn’t be more of one than the other. Balance is key and he was talking about balance more than anything else.”

  1. And how much money did Kenya have to pay her for her to say she agreed with Kenya? She needs to know that agreeing with Little Man Tate won’t help her one hit wonder career..

  2. Ms. Thompson on said:

    Tom, Kanye needs to get a clue. He and other accomplished artists in that industry need to realize that the NARAS is a Chamber of Commerce in the business world of Music which he and other accomplished artists have the right to become members. The Grammys is an Awards ceremony recognizing the accomplishments of the business/members but on a BIGGER stage. And due to his and other such artists’ accomplishments, they have the DUTY to VOTE for those who would become NOMINATED for an award. If enough of them knew the gravity of their voices, they would band together and have their say as to WHO would WIN. That young man did not vote himself into that award that Kanye believes Beyonce should have won. Stop the madness and gather enough voice to make a difference in the outcome at the time of the vote. I know because I used to vote as proxy and I have seen the ballots and sent mine in. VOTE Kanye and sit your butt down and watch what happens when enough of your friends do the same thing.. . . . VOTE!!!!
