Kanye West is at it again. But sadly it is not singing. While speaking to Access Hollywood about his new short film, Runaway, the outspoken rapper once again let his mouth run away when it came to the topic of next year’s Grammy nominations. Check out his response in the interview clip below.
West still wants to discuss last year, where he was criticized for interrupting Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for Best Female Video. He asked, "Why are the last four Albums of the Year: Taylor Swift, Dixie Chicks, Ray Charles and Herbie Hancock? Like, you know, with all due respect… that’s inaccurate. How about albums that sold 10 million?"
West might have his own album, My Beautiful Twisted Reality, in mind which is set to be released November 22. But really, this isn’t about him. "I don’t really care about me. It’s about everybody. It’s about artists. It’s about fair ground. If Drake is having an awesome year and his year is better than mine, I’m not gonna say I should win. I’m gonna say Drake should win."
If nothing else the rapper is sure to have a busy year. On top of his first new album in three years, the 35-minute short he directed starring Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks and named after one of his new songs will air on MTV tomorrow night at 8pm EST. Ironically the same network where he placed partial blame. "I pinpoint the Grammys and the VMAs because they have to take responsibility, because they mean something to us," he said. "Little kids, 6-years [old], that are singing in front of the mirror. They’re also thinking about their Grammy speech."
But the question is, is West thinking about interrupting their acceptance speech too?
Do you take Kanye's feelings about award winners seriously or is this just another rant? Chime in below!
