Kanye West Ends Beef With Taylor Swift At 2015 Grammys, Starts A New One With Beck
The Grammys are always filled with many surprises, but — woah! — who could’ve ever predicted this would happen! Last night at the awards ceremony (February 8), Kanye West and Taylor Swift made amends after the infamous 2009 VMAs incident where he bum-rushed the stage!
The musicians shook hands and took pictures in the audience, looking to have “shaken off” their previous drama. But what is an awards show without some form of spectacle? Well, Kanye definitely followed through — this time with Beck! The rapper jokingly hopped on stage when the singer (and not Beyonce) won Album Of The Year. But an E! News interview reveals that the “Only One” artist was quite serious!
Beck responded to the situation via Us Weekly: “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?” He also thought King Bey should have won: “I thought she was going to win. Come on, she’s Beyoncé!”
