In the aftermath of Kanye West sonning Beck at the 2015 Grammys, several artists have used the incident to voice what they think of Yeezy’s antics. Shirley Manson of Garbage–who you haven’t thought of in decades, if ever–recently went on a Facebook tirade calling him a “complete twat.”
That’s cool and all and she’s probably right, but seriously who gives a shit what Shirley Manson thinks of anything? Beck himself is taking the highroad/being a total pussy, praising Kanye as a genius, but a musician who’s sold a fuckton more records and played to more humans than Manson, Beck, and Kanye combined times 10 wouldn’t be so humble.
Known for his hairy chest and now his saggy face, Kiss frontman Paul Stanley weighed in on his Facebook page, saying “Beck should’ve kicked #Kanye right in the nuts last night and said Get the fuck off MY stage! The GRAMMYs #grammys“.
So why does the opinion of a grown man who wears makeup matter more? It doesn’t, but he’s sold over 100 million records and is willing to fight people who point lasers at him, which is way more than we can say for meek Scientologist, Bek David Campbell. Also, Kiss may suck, but at least Stanley is a unapologetic about being a pervy businessman, who’s job is to make rock music, instead of calling himself a “futurist” and misusing common words. Plus, thinking about him booting Kanye in the nuts with those high-heel boots is kind of awesome.
