NEW YORK (AP) — Kanye West says he has nothing but respect for Beck. The Grammys? Not so much.

West paid a visit on Ryan Seacrest and his “On Air” radio show Wednesday to expound on his post-Grammy diss of the surprise Album of the Year winner.

The rapper walked up the steps at the Staples Center in Los Angeles as Beck was accepting his award Sunday night but retreated before re-enacting his interruption of Taylor Swift at the 2009 VMAs. During an aftershow on E!, West ranted that Beck should “respect artistry” and turn over his statue to fellow nominee Beyonce.

West told Seacrest of his stair-climbing antics: “It was kind of a joke like the Grammys themselves.”

And the post-show tirade?

“This is our Super Bowl, you know, and someone’s gotta be mad that Marshawn didn’t get the ball,” he said. Marshawn being Beyonce in this scenario but Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch in actual life.

As for “respecting artistry,” West explained he was upset that Beck didn’t mention other nominees as worthy in the category during his speech.

“Beck is one of the nicest guys and one of the most respected musicians in the game, so it’s nothing that I would want to do as a fellow musician, to disrespect him in any way,” he said. “That was a miswording on my part.”

West went on to describe the Grammys thusly: “They’re like a broke clock. They’re right only, like, twice a day.”

Fine…But Crazy!

    • Then Brian Pratt , you need to look at alot Europeans and whites. They are the entitle savagesw who think they are the only ones who run thing and have things and steal things. idoit.

  1. Kimye needs to get a life and not worry about whether or not others are “artists with talent.”
    So tired of seeing him and that wife of his in the news!

    • I agree; BUT as Long as he get the attentions, the media follows him, they are making $$$$$, Kanye will continue to do it. Look, more people are paying attention to him for saying what he said than about others who won. SO who is really the crazy one? Not Kanye and KIm. The clearly can careless about those who dislike then because they have others who like them and keep them afloat.
