The Upbeat Recap – February 13th
In honor of the 57th annual Grammy awards ceremony, the crew of The Upbeat discussed all the major happenings of the event that occurred last Sunday night.
In a serious deja vu moment, Kanye West took the stage last Sunday after Beck was awarded the Grammy for Best Album for his album Morning Phase. Kanye walked on the stage, but instead of taking the microphone from Beck and proceeding to tell the world that Beyonce deserved the Grammy instead of Beck, he calmly stepped down from the stage. Beck, however, proceeded to attempt to get Kanye to come back onto the stage, claiming that Kanye deserved to be up there just as much as he did. Kanye claimed soon afterwards to E! that Beck should give his Grammy to Beyonce, claiming that Beck needs to respect artistry.
The day after the Grammys, in an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Kanye claimed that the reason he did not take the microphone from Beck is because Beck is “one of the most respected musicians in the game.” Also, Kanye claims that after stepping down from the stage, Taylor Swift told him to go back up there. Swift and Kanye are reportedly planning on collaborating in the future.
