Celebrities Continue to Bash Kanye Over Grammys Stunt

Kanye West's biggest character flaw is he can't keep his mouth shut. His little stunt at the Grammys could have been viewed as a self-deprecating parody, had he not opened his mouth backstage. Instead, West created more reasons for us to dislike him.

We don't agree with The Guardian, which feels West's Grammy rant was "an act of brave solidarity". Beyoncé is far from a struggling artist who needs her voice heard, and interrupting someone's deserved recognition is the lowest form of protest.

The question we have is: Who arranges the seating chart for the Grammys? And why was West allowed to sit near the front of the stage after his 2009 incident with Taylor Swift?

We can only hope that if/when West wins a Grammy in the future, a barrage of musicians -- not just Beck and Swift -- will rush the stage and thwart his acceptance speech. And then Beyoncé will descend from the ceiling on a golden throne, approach West, take the Grammy from his hands and walk offstage.

Here's what West said about Beck's win at the E! After Party:

"I don't know what he said, all I know is if the Grammys want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us. We ain't gonna play with them no more. Flawless, Beyoncé video. Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé, and at this point, we tired of it."

Beck took the high road: "You can't please everybody. I still love him and think he's genius," Beck said of West. "I aspire to what he does. How many great records has he put out in the last five years, right?"

Celebrities have not been holding back their opinions of West's latest faux pas. Here are the latest disses. Quotation above via Shirley Manson's Facebook page.
