Singer Shirley Manson slams Kanye West: ‘You make yourself look small and petty and spoilt’

Kanye West may have officially jumped the shark, and the lead singer of the band Garbage drove that point home in a brutal Facebook post this Sunday.

Kanye West may have officially jumped the shark, and the lead singer of the band Garbage drove that point home in a brutal Facebook post this Sunday.

Apparently trying to top his disgraceful antics towards Taylor Swift at the VMA Awards in 2009, West stormed the stage again, this time when musician Beck was receiving his Grammy for Album of the Year during Saturday night’s ceremony – followed by a rant that the award should have gone to Beyoncé and that Beck “needs to respect artistry,” blah, blah, blah.

Beck’s good friend, Shirley Manson of Garbage, wasn’t having any of it:

From The Daily Beast’s Marlow Stern:

Looks like we have a ’90s vs. ’00s showdown on our hands. The mild-mannered Beck, for his part, didn’t seem to have much of a problem with what Kanye did or said. When Us Weekly caught up with the 44-year-old musician post-Grammys, he even came to Kanye’s defense.

“I was just so excited he was coming up. He deserves to be on stage as much as anybody,” Beck said when asked about the stage incident. “How many great records has he put out in the last five years right?”

Even though he said Beyoncé should have won? “Absolutely,” said Beck. “I thought she was going to win. Come on she’s Beyoncé!”

He added, “You can’t please everybody, man. I still love him and think he’s genius. I aspire to do what he does.”

A definite class act from Beck, and a solid smackdown from Manson. And Kanye? Screw that guy.

    In all seriousness, this article you posted was written by an individual who cannot execute the tasks one chooses to engage in. Kanye loves Beck and did not state, in any way/shape/form ” that Beck “needs to respect artistry,” blah, blah, blah”. In fact, Kanye explicitly stated the exact opposite about Beck. Beck understood this completely. Kanye’s position is that those who decide award winners “need to respect artistry”.

    Tl;Dr: both Shirley Manson and the writer of this article missed the boat completely. Beck and Kanye are on the same team.
