Kanye once again made himself the subject of someone else's win.
Why jaws dropped:
Oh, Kanye. We thought interrupting speeches was soooo 2009!
When pop icon Prince announced that indie-rocker Beck beat out a number of talented artists, including Beyoncé, to win Album Of The Year for Morning Phase, no one—including Beck—really knew how to respond. Looking more shocked than excited, Beck barely had the chance to open his mouth before Kanye West walked onto the stage, thought twice, and swiftly returned to his seat.
But, while he refrained from bad-mouthing the winner on stage, Kanye had no problem telling reporters after the GRAMMYs just how he felt, saying: "Beck needs to respect artistry, and he should have given his award to Beyoncé."
That's certainly one way to say congrats.
