Someone called the Beygency! Beck will think twice before going up against Beyonce again. The veteran singer-songwriter, 44, took home the 2015 Album of the Year Grammy for Morning Phase, surprisingly beating out the “Drunk in Love” singer’s blockbuster, critically acclaimed self-titled visual album.
After his win, Beck’s Wikipedia page got some interesting updates that appear to have come straight out of Kanye West’s mouth. One new “fact” read, “He is the stealer of The Album of the Year award,” before noting that the “Blue Moon” singer stole the honor from “Beyonce Knowles, the Queen of the World.” The page has since been changed to read, “On February 8, 2015, at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, Morning Phase won three Grammys.”
It wasn’t the first attack on the singer. When he took the stage to accept the Album of the Year Award, rapper Kanye West hopped up prepared to interrupt him before deciding against it.
The move was reminiscent of West’s infamous 2009 MTV VMA moment when he took the microphone from Taylor Swift, declaring, “Imma let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the greatest videos of all time.”
At the Grammys, Kim Kardashian’s husband, 37, restrained himself, waiting to blast Beck until after the show. It turns out the “Only One” emcee definitely wasn’t kidding when he jumped onstage.
"I just know that the Grammys, if they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us," he told E! (via Billboard). "We ain't gonna play with them no more. And Beck needs to respect artistry, and he should've given his award to Beyonce."
The father of 19-month-old North West said he controlled himself for his wife Kim Kardashian, daughter, and clothing line.
"That's the reason why I didn't say anything tonight,” West said. “But you all know when it meant when 'Ye walked on that stage."
For his part, Beck kept it classy when confronted with the rapper’s comments, saying, “I was just so excited he was coming up. He deserves to be on stage as much as anybody. How many great records has he put out in the last five years right?"
As for “stealing” the award from Beyonce, 33, Beck added, “I thought she was going to win. Come on, she’s Beyonce!”
