In a recent interview Kanye West says that the GRAMMYS have been unfair because recent past Album of Year awards went to the likes of Taylor Swift, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Herbie Hancock and the Dixie Chics. Okay, Taylor Swift may have been pay back, Robert Plant was part of LED so he’s an icon, the Dixie Chics are, well, the Dixie Chics, but to criticize Herbie Hancock? Kanye, you have lost another one of your minds. Herbie Hancock is probably the greatest music mind of our time. If Herbie makes an album of nursery rhymes you can believe that he first studied it back to its origin before he mastered it.
Well Kanye, maybe the Lakers didn’t deserve to win the NBA title last year because the Cavs won more regular season games. Or perhaps God should have chosen Moses to be his son instead of Jesus, after all Moses wrote the Ten Commandments. Maybe the Gerber baby should be on People’s Most Beautiful People list because millions of bottles of baby food are sold every year using the same face. Kanye believes that Drake, Usher, and others should get more recognition because of record sales. “I really don’t care about me…it’s about everybody” he says. Weren’t the past four winners of Album of the Year part of “everybody?”
Com’mon Kanye, stop sweating the small stuff like VMA, GRAMMY, and AMA. Crash the party in Stockholm next year and demand that a Nobel Prize be given for music, and make you the first winner.
Kanye’s new record is called “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.”
