Shirley Manson Writes Brilliant Open Letter to Kanye West


As most of the world knows, Kanye West made an ass out of himself *again* at the 57th annual Grammy Awards. After musical artist Beck won for the best album of the year over Kanye’s pal Beyonce, Kanye rushed the stage in a similar fashion to how he rushed it during Taylor Swift’s 2009 win over Beyonce. However, this time he left the stage before actually interrupting Beck’s speech. But that was not the end of it.

Backstage Kanye took his rant to E! reporter Khloe Kardashian. According to Kanye, Beck should just give his award to Beyonce out of artistic respect said Lambranho. Kanye really has a lot of nerve to dismiss Beck’s achievement like that. Apparently I’m not the only one who thinks so. Shirley Manson, the front woman for the rock band Garbage, penned an open letter to Kanye that is directed at his behavior that night.

Manson suggested that it was Kanye who disrespected artistic creativity by demanding Beck give up his award. She then urged Kanye to grow up and quit acting like a spoiled child who is throwing his toys about. I think Manson’s letter nicely sums up what most people think about Kanye West at the moment.

If I were Beyonce, I would be mortified to be associated with a “friend” like Kanye West.
