It's tantrums like this that ensure Kanye will never be truly credible. He's got the critical acclaim, but as long as he's married to Kim Kardashian and throwing his toys out the pram every time someone wins an award who he deems unworthy, he's never going to be an overall respected artist in the eyes of the public. So much for thinking he'd changed since the whole Taylor fiasco. And that was at the MTV awards which isn't really taken seriously anyway. You can't be pulling stunts like this at the Grammys. Just like you can raise hell at the People's Choice Awards if you want but do it at the Oscars and you'll be permanently banned. By disrespecting the voting process, Kanye may never win another Grammy again and won't be able to blame it on race for once because he'll know the real reason why. Or if he does still blame it on that, no one's going to buy it.
I'm glad that this situation has at least alerted people to the issue that Beyonce receives way too much credit. Her artistic input has always been minimal and her music has never broken any boundaries. To say that she has better artistry than a proper singer/songwriter who plays his own instruments and is the sole writer and producer of his albums is ludicrous. And you don't even have to be familar with Beck's music to understand that.[/quote]
End of thread!
I'm sorry but I will even throw the Gags card. On artistic credibility beyonce doesn't even touch Gaga. Gaga deserves way more recognition than just the copy Madonna crazy girl. BTW album was amazing and is still my fave album because the fans basically wrote it. I hate Adele beat her

Rap was bigger 10 years ago, and much of the cultural discussion it generates is racial controversy rather than just about the music. I think blacks need to diversify their musical output, put fewer eggs in the rap basket, if they want to dominate awards and sales like they did in the past.
Were is the new Stevie Wonder, MJ, and Prince?[/quote]
I would love to see a male as talented and bold as prince in this day. I feel like prince really did start a movement with his fashion and musical talents too bad he has no one to pass the baton to.
