Kanye West has explained the reason he decided to crash the stage during Beck’s Grammy award speech.
It was all down to the voices in his head. Right.
Speaking to Ryan Seacrest KIIS radio show, the 37-year-old seemed to shirk responsibility for his actions because he was simply following instructions.
Yes, Kanye, instructions from YOURSELF.
He explained: “Right when that happened, everybody was looking at me and then people started screaming, ‘Kanye! Kanye! Go do it!’ Okay, that didn’t really happen.
“These were voices in my head. So the voices in my head told me go and then I just walked up like halfway up the stage.”
Kanye also explained that last Sunday’s stage invasion was meant to make reference to 2009 when he gatecrashed Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the VMAs.
“What I really wanted to do [was] just joke around about what had happened before, but I just really didn’t want to take away from Beck’s moment or the time he’s having to talk,” he said.
“The Grammys, they play music really quick no matter who you are and everything. So I didn’t want anything to take away from his screen time.”
Well at least that’s cleared up – but what about his wholly uncomplimentary words he later said about Beck pipping Beyonce to Album of the Year?
Don’t worry, he had that covered too.
“I was asked my opinion and I was given a platform,” he said. And when given a platform, it’s very hard as we know – and I’m going to talk in third person like I’m a crazy person – but it’s very hard for Kanye West to not be very true and vocal to what he feels.
So basically, if given the chance, he’d probably say it all again.
