Shirley Manson Rips Kanye a New One

On Monday night, Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson took to Facebook to relinquish full rage on Kanye West about his almost-storming the stage at the 57th Grammy Awards.  She defends Beck and immediately calls West out on his actions, calling him disrespectful and spoiled, the opposite of what West claims in his post-Grammy rant with E!.


What say you? Are Shirley Manson’s words founded, or do you side with Kanye? Let us know in the comments!

    Yeah, see, my issue is this. The only sound bite people are taking from that post-show interview is, “Beck does not respect artistry. He should have given his award to Beyonce.” Both of which are completely false claims, it’s true, but if people would cool down and listen to the REST of what he’s saying, he has a point.

    Kanye needs to grow up. Even his friends/family around him were in disbelief. If I was a musical act, I wouldn’t want anything to do with him.

    I get what Kanye was (trying) to say in the E! post-show interview, but he did not need to disparage Beck while he was at it. Beck had a moment he was due to have, and it also was a moment for alternative music, and now it’s overshadowed once again by Kanye. Just because Kanye probably does not listen to much Beck and Beck is not as commercially successful as Beyoncé does not mean he was not worthy of the award.
