Patterico's Pontifications


Kanye West Pulls A Kanye West — Again

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:38 am

So Beck beats out Beyoncé for Best Album at the Grammys, and Kanye West storms the stage in protest.

Everyone laughs at the joke.

Except it turns out not to be a joke, and West is heard ranting about the injustice afterwards.

Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé and at this point, we tired of it. 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.

I could not possibly care less about the Grammys or the shitty music they celebrate there. But this classless goon keeps trying to ruin people’s moment, and that’s wrong no matter how meaningless the moment is to me.

Maybe stop inviting Kanye West to the Grammys?

And speaking of smacking people in the face . . .

I think Taylor Swift should have walked right up to him, told him to STFU, and slugged him.

No jury would convict.

  1. Mr. Governor Huckabee has been very clear that this “Beyonce” person is a wanton pickle and we praise her at peril of Lucifer laying claim to our souls

  2. I would have had Taylor Swift aim lower.

  4. So, only rasiss get to participate in the voting?

    felipe (b5e0f4)

  5. Who is Kayne West ?

    as for ‘Beyonce’ – eh, never appealed to me in either looks or solo singing.
    to me she is a Diane Ross wannabe , without the pipes.
    Maybe Beyonce needs a real Barry Gordy.

  6. Publicity stunt. Pure and simple. Has nothing to do with fairness or artistry.

    elissa (b6b39a)

  7. Idiots and their enablers do us all a favor when they behave badly – especially when their remonstrations are as public as this one. “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.” Keep it up, Kanye, keep it up.

  8. The paragraph you quoted…only a person completely unaware of himself could have said that.

  9. I’m an old guy, but Beck puts out some creative music. West is a braying jackass

    Colonel Haiku (2601c0)

  10. Feets is kind of cleaning up his act… “wanton pickle”? lol

    Colonel Haiku (2601c0)

  11. I never would have thought of “wanton pickle”. One-ton buttock, maybe.

  12. O/T lost in last week’week’s noise was Kenji Goto. It appears he didn’t want to leave Haruna Yukawa behind. It appeares he was a committed Christian. That he went into this eyes wide open.

    Steve57 (36c0a6)

  13. “Beck needs to respect artistry”

    The guy who stormed the stage at the Grammys with a bottle of booze in his hand because a black didn’t win an award is lecturing us all to “respect artistry.”

    CrustyB (69f730)

  14. Kanye (WTF kind of name is that anyway?) manterupted the Grammys again…

    yawn… Six Flags Over Nothing

    redc1c4 (34e91b)

  15. I wonder if he ever won anything that wasn’t a participation trophy.

    htom (4ca1fa)

  16. He did it once before. The Grammy’s management expected or wanted it to happen again, or there’d have been a guard at Kanye’s side or at the end of the aisle where he was sitting to keep him from storming the stage.

    elissa (b6b39a)

  17. The bed-wetter strikes again. That angry midget should get punched in the face every day just for sport.

    Gazzer (e441dc)

  18. This just in: Brian Williams kept Kanye from rushing the stage, just before dancing in the Sia piece.

  19. Imma gonna hit him.

    Steve57 (36c0a6)

  20. That presupposes certain conditions. Starting with me winning an award.

    Steve57 (36c0a6)

  21. Emcee:The nominees for best album are

    Happyfeet for “Wanton Pickle”

    Steve 57 for “Imma gonna hit him”

    And the winner is…

    felipe (b5e0f4)

  22. Sit back down,nk you have to wait for me to annouce the winner!

    felipe (b5e0f4)

  23. re #22: i am still waiting ……………

    seeRpea (181740)

  24. Say, what does it mean when htom draws a pointing finger across the throat?

    felipe (b5e0f4)

  25. Happy feet for “Wanton Pickle”

    Runs away

    felipe (b5e0f4)

  26. It pains me to admit I know this but Kanye is friends with Jay Z, Beyoncé’s husband. Some say Queen B doesn’t like Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian because Kim is too trashy for the Queen. Kanye really, really wants them to get along, so this may also have something to do with ingratiating him and especially his wife into Beyoncé’s good graces.

    DRJ (e80d46)

  27. schyler68 – Pres’ent Obama has recorded yet another PSA (in his case, Posturing Self-serving Announcement) to tell everyone that the wanton pickle that carried out the attack on the kosher deli didn’t do it for religious anti-kosher-pickle reasons – the wanton pickle was simply expressing workplace violence at someone else’s workplace …

    Alastor (2e7f9f)

  28. I understand, DRJ. You saw that in People Magazine at the Beauty Parlour.

    elissa (b6b39a)

  29. Happyfeet and the War Pickle.

    Steve57 (36c0a6)

  30. yes, but that was true, when he first dissed taylor,

  31. I am going to write that book. Green Dragons and Black Cats. Feets gets a free copy.

    Steve57 (36c0a6)

  32. The kindle version.

    Steve57 (36c0a6)

  33. of course, Kanye like Williams, had his part in the Katrina montage,

  34. I understand, DRJ. You saw that in People Magazine at the Beauty Parlour.

    DAleyrocks! Are you using elissa’s handle, again?

    felipe (b5e0f4)

  35. RE: #21

    So no one chided me for typing “Emcee”, instead of “MC”, instead of “Master of Ceremony?”

    I guess we all read people magazine.

    felipe (b5e0f4)

  36. Wonder what would happen if someone pulled a Kanye at the Iowa caucus the next time the estabishment picked an imigration squish like Jeb?

    Trank darts? Stun gun? MEChA thug beat down?

  37. Patterico, I’mma let you finish, but Glenn Reynolds has the best poltical blog of all time.

  38. kanye west
    Svarte faen.

    mg (31009b)

  39. Not helping my cause, honey. Not helping.

    Beyoncé (341ca0)

  40. Kanye West is an honest, decent man.

    Dan Rather (341ca0)

  41. He’s a anal orifice. With an infection.

    This idiot made a statement once that books are ‘too full of words’, and that he didn’t waste his time with reading them. That tell you anything?

    Firehand (ac0572)

  42. Svarte faen.

    mg (31009b) — 2/9/2015 @ 1:01 pm

    Wow, that kind of comment is not helpful. Kanye West is a douchebag because of what’s inside of his skin, not the outside.

    carlitos (c24ed5)

  43. Love Beck. The album is kind of a more mature take on his classic 2002 “Sea Change” – one of the best heartbreak/breakup records ever. Beck has more talent and musical ability than Beyonce, Kanye and Jay-Z put together. Not close. He has done rock, country, folk, rap, dance, you name it.

    The award was kind of a lifetime achievement award for Beck. It might be his 5th best album imho.

    fugazi (381bb5)

  44. re #26: holy sh1t , please tell me that was not a real interview. maybe some sort of ‘Onion’ parody?

    seeRpea (181740)

  45. West’s newest release… “It Takes a Feedbag of Oats (anna bottle-a Dom) to Hold Me Back”…

    Colonel Haiku (2601c0)

  46. Kanye confuses sophistry with artistry.

    The distinction is lost when one doesn’t sing, play a instrument skillfully or for write his own music.

    Dude has lost all cred after his marriage and money . So now to stay relevant, he tries to insert himself into the news by playing to Bey, Jay Z and most importantly the ghetto.

    He’s a loser and time is baring that out.

  47. Them white boys got that fool strung out on the dust.

    = my impression of a

    ghetto rat rationalizing Kanye West's behavior papertiger (c2d6da)

  48. I think he is a black devil.
    Deal with it.

    mg (31009b)

  49. His Momma done raised no foo…Oh wait, what- I forgot.

    Gazzer (e441dc)

  50. Your Norwegian is rusty, mg.

    nk (dbc370)

  51. nk – my understanding is Faen is a short version of the word Fanden. Fanden means the devil so Faen is a name of an ugly, evil creature [the devil or satan]

    mg (31009b)

  52. i’m still trying to figure out why i should give a rat’s pickle about this nontroversy…

    redc1c4 (cf3b04)

  53. Aaron Sorkin made the end-all point about The Grammys over 15 years ago:

    Sports Night (The Apology):
    Casey McCall: Can I just say one more thing about the Starland Vocal Band?
    Dan Rydell: Sure.
    Casey McCall: 1978, they win the Grammy for Best New Artist. You know who they beat? Elvis Costello. Now is it your belief that Elvis Costello isn’t cool?
    Dan Rydell: No, it’s my belief that the Grammy voters aren’t cool.
    Casey McCall: Now they tell me.

    There may have been a time when The Grammys had anything to do with quality music.

    It hasn’t been anything but a complete accident *whenever* it’s happened in the last 35+ years.

    ‘Nuff Said.

    IGotBupkis, "Si tacuisses, philosophus mansisses." (225d0d)

  54. Rap is crap an Kanye is chock full.

    DNF (2a424b)

  55. This is REALLY inappropriate, but I watch it every time Kanye West gets all full of himself.

    Mencia has his own problems.


    “…he’s bein’ Theo Huxtable for his money…”

    …is nearly a perfect put down.

    Again, awfully crude.

    Simon Jester (c8876d)

  56. Kanye West has a thing about whites. (He only married famewhore Kim Kardashian because her a$$ is even bigger than a black woman’s.) I’ll bet you a thousand bucks that even the most untalented black “artist” would never be singled out for the rude Kanye treatment. He gets away with this crap because the politically correct Hollywood “music” bubbleheads would never say anything about the ghetto behavior of this alleged black genius.

    Funeral Guy (2b0c22)

  57. This is the same mindset that informed the Ferguson riots. It’s the “How dare that X, Y or Z object to being attacked by a black man. Doesn’t he, she, it, know (he, she, it’s) place?”
