No, we didn’t teleport back to 2009, Kanye West is still fighting for Beyoncé (unasked, if facial expressions are anything to go by), taking to the stage after Beck won Album of The Year at the 2015 Grammy Awards, but one thing was different from the controversial first time Yeezy stormed the stage… he and arch rival Taylor Swift are cool with each other, and apparently recording music together.
In a post show interview, ‘Ye confirmed that he and Tay are “going into the studio together”, confiding to Ryan Seacrest his plans for the as yet titled record.
It wasn’t just lip service, however, with the two artists showing that everything was forgotten after the infamous fall-out, posing together happily during the telecast of the award show.
It wasn’t all a fresh page for the controversial rapper, though, with Kanye’s outburst over the winner of Album of The Year. After seemingly making a joke of the 2009 Taylor incident by pretending to stage crash Beck after his Album of the Year win, he vented, saying that “I just know that the Grammys, if they want real artists, to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us. We ain’t gonna play with them no more… And Beck needs to respect artistry and he should’ve given his award to Beyoncé.”
Clarifying his comments, ‘Ye said “Beck is one of the nicest guys and one of the most respected musicians in the game. When I said that thing about respect artistry, I think it came off the wrong way and that was a mis-wording on my part.
