Kanye West is sticking by his actions and words from Sunday night’s Grammy award ceremony. West, who called out Beck on wanting him to turn over his Grammy to Beyonce. Called his actions ” a little jolt of truth.” However during a talk with Ryan Seacrest West, 37 joked that “the voices in his head” told him to go onstage after Beck beat out Beyonce for Album of the Year.
“So the voices in my head told me go and then I just walked up like halfway up the stage. You know, what I really wanted to do is just joke around about what had happened before, but I just really didn’t want to take away from Beck’s moment or the time he’s having to talk.” West said today during the interview on for “On Air with Ryan Seacrest.”
The Rapper continued to say “So I just walked back down because you know, it was kind of a joke like the Grammys themselves.” Throughout his career, West has never been the type of music artist to hide his feelings to the media.
In the interview, West also explains the thought process he had before going to the stage. “You know, I felt like just the whole Grammys, right when that happened, everybody was looking at me, and then people started screaming, ‘Kanye! Kanye! Go do it!’ Okay, that didn’t really happen, these were voices in my head,”
Although West had open emotions about the Grammy awards, he says he has a lot of respect for artist Beck, “Beck is one of the nicest guys and one of the most respected musicians in the game. So, there’s nothing that I will want to do as a fellow musician to disrespect him in any way. And the weird thing is like, and I don’t feel like I have the right to take away from people’s moments, but the reality of it is — and case in point by who came up to me right afterwards — is it’s almost like a chiropractor. You know, you just get a little crook out like, ‘Wow, this crook has been there!’ It’s just a little jolt of truth, right?”
West feels like Beyonce would never say something like that because she is a respectful person, He also feels like Fame can hinder someone’s feelings and statements. “But because she is so successful, a lot of times, success disables your ability to communicate exactly what the f*** you want to say!”
West’s strong display of emotion all boils down to the fact that his feeling are surrounded around music artistry he continued to say, “It’s not a black or white thing at all. It’s not me always standing up for a black artist. I feel that racism is a distraction to humanity. We are one race. We are the human race, period.”
