Los Angeles: Rapper Kanye West, who crashed Beck's Grammy acceptance speech, says he was not joking and the award should have gone to Beyonce.
West's stunt at the Grammy, reminiscent of his VMA moment with Taylor Swift, was thought to be a joke initially but the rapper said he was serious as Beyonce not Beck hould have won the trophy.
"Beck knows that Beyonce should have won - you know that," West said. Asked if he'd ever heard of Beck before the Grammy awards show, he said, "Come on, man, I love Beck. But he ain't have Album of the Year."
West nearly crashed Beck's acceptance speech after his 'Morning Phase' won the coveted Album of the Year Award over other albums by Beyonce, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran and Pharrell Williams. Singer Shirley Manson has blasted West for his stunt and said "You Make Yourself Look Small and Petty and Spoilt".
