Kanye West STORMS Grammy Awards stage after Beck beat Beyonce to Best Album gong

Invading someone else’s moment is so 2009, Kanye

What have you done today to make you feel proud? Helped an old man cross the road? Delivered a newborn child on the bus? Just managed to get yourself out of bed in one piece? Well Kanye West knows someone who’s done ALL THAT AND MORE, so basically you have to shut up about your own achievements forever more.

Yep, Yeezy decided to reprise his 2009 Taylor Swift ambush at last night’s Grammy Awards, when he climbed on stage after American artist Beck took the award for Best Album and beat Beyonce in the process.


He stormed the stage during Beck’s acceptance speech, then seemed to think better of it and turned to go – but not before Beck noticed what he was doing and, pretty good-naturedly in our opinion, beckoned for him to come back on.

While Kanye didn’t actually interrupt proceedings too much, he still had a good old rant backstage (or Beckstage, as we’re renaming it, just to piss him off that bit more) about the award results.

Speaking to sister-in-law Khloe Kardashian, who was reporting for E!, Kanye railed against the system.

“We ain't gonna play with them no more. Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé,” he pouted.

“At this point - we're tired of it because what happens is, you keep on diminishing art and not respecting the craft and smacking people in the face after they deliver monumental music. You are disrespectful to inspiration.”

His wife Kim Kardashian had to interject at that point to say they had to catch a flight to New York, but agreed that Beyonce should have won the gong. That’s a massive turnaround, given that the two women have been warring since before Kim and Kanye got married last summer.

“I wish he had said something [on stage],” Kim added before whisking Kanye away.

She later posted a selfie on her Instagram showing herself, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen all looking shocked, captioning it: “This is the Beck won that award face?!?!?!”


Let’s take a look at that Vine of Jay Z’s face after Kanye starts squaring up to the stage, shall we?

Kelly Osbourne

We are SO into Kelly O's uber-covered up monochrome dress. Edgy, cool and way flattering, we also love the way it sets off her lilac locks. Go, Kel!

Guiliana Rancic

Kelly's red carpet presenter buddy Guiliana rocked a sheer panelled LBS with scarlet lips for the event. Her sharp blunt bob co-ords beautifully with her pointed panels.

We LOVE Charli's fun take on red carpet styling! What a babe.

Haim4 of 19


US rock-pop sisters Haim brought their individual style to the Grammys. We can't pick a fave, can you?

Kat Graham5 of 19

Kat Graham

Kat's sheer frock was almost toooooo sheer. Luckily the flawless beauty and glossy top knot made it look cool rather that trashy.

Ariana Grande6 of 19

Ariana Grande

Petite pop star Ariana gave great style in her white hot Versace frock with silver detailing. Still owner of the best high pony in recent years.

Chrissy Teigen7 of 19

Chrissy Teigen

Another ice-white Grammys babe! Chrissy see-through caged detail stayed on the right side of flashy.

Gwen Stefani8 of 19

Gwen Stefani

How teeny tiny is Gwen?! We loved the star's Atelier Versace jumpsuit but miss her bright red pout.

Jessie J9 of 19

Jessie J

J-J-Jessie J! Rocking Goth glam in noir embellishment.

Lady Gaga10 of 19

Lady Gaga

She's not wearing meat! That's a celebration in itself. Even though Lady G's frock plunged deep and flashed thigh, we like the silvery embellishment so much we don't care. Plus, like we said, it's not salami.

Katy Perry11 of 19

Katy Perry

We'll forgive those bridesmaid-esque heels because the dress is sparkly and divine.

Meghan Trainor12 of 19

Meghan Trainor

The blogger who has taken over the music world looked fab in her sheer floor length party frock.

Anna Kendrick13 of 19

Anna looked like she meant proper business in her sharp noir suit!

Iggy Azalea14 of 19

Iggy Azalea

Look. At. Iggy's. BOD. The rapper showed off her incred figure and wore the best plaited crown to the Grammys.

Jennifer Hudson15 of 19

Jennifer Hudson

Proof that simple is sometimes best! We love that pop of juicy purple lippy, too.

Miley Cyrus16 of 19

Miley Cyrus

Miley shocked us by not being very shocking at all! She looked fresh-faced and stylish.

Taylor Swift17 of 19

Taylor Swift

Tay-Swizzle does it again! This time in an ombre sea-green high-low dress with clashing pink heels. Nice work, bae.

Beyonce18 of 19


Bey werking it like the Queen that she is in sassy black lace with a plunging neckline.

Rihanna19 of 19


This dress is as nutty as it is pink. We can see it's mad but there's still something quite pretty about seeing BadGalRiRi in all of that pink froth. Plus, her make up is giving us EVERYTHING.
