Kanye West - Grammy comment, re Beck

Kanye West on-camera last nite: 'Beck needs to respect artistry.' Then a long rant about...ah just watch it.

What would Kanye say about Beethoven? Or Dylan? or Matisse?

Having fun with this as Twitter is aflame already with it. But the more I think about it, the more it gnaws on me. He was referring to Beck winning Album of the Year (instead of Beyonce). I could go on a long rant myself about his ego, general creepiness, but nothing I could add. But his comments are heard by millions of music fans...

Anyhoo, anyone else see those comments? Reactions?
He's entitled to his own opinion and he can shout it from the rooftops after the show or tweet it or facebook it or however he wants to disseminate it, but not verbally during the awards ceremony. Rude is rude.
HE can do whatever he wants. Just don't expect people to approve. I doubt he really cares though. I don't really either that much. Its just a discussion. Anyone can say or do whatever they want within teh limits of the law. Its a free country.
kanye is an idiot for taking away what should have been a very proud moment for Beck,,and it was Becks moment and shithead kanye should not have been part of it.Someone said that kanye has some grammys,,I wonder how he would have felt had someone done the same to him.
Maybe the next time Kanye wins an award someone will dump a bucket of something appropriate--such as bullshit--on him. The guy needs to grow up. I do give him credit for stopping himself from going further than he did on the actual broadcast this time. Maybe that's a sign of hope.
Did anyone else see the valentines cake that reads, "I love you as much as Kanye West loves Kanye West"?
