The GRAMMYs are over but Kanye West ain’t done yet.
On the aftershow telecast on E!, the rapper made a bold declaration as his wife Kim Kardashian stood beside him: “The Kardashians should have a percentage of E!”
The moment was captured in a Vine by Complex that has been widely circulated since.
But that wasn’t all: in another clip from the show, West decided to present another hot take to the fine viewers of E!: that Beck, who scored Album of the Year for Morning Phase, should give his award to Beyonce, who was nominated for her self-titled release.
“If they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us,” he told the hosts. “We ain’t gonna play with them no more.”
Of course, that followed West jumping onstage after Beck was announced the winner, emulating his famed stage-rushing at the VMAs a few years ago when Taylor Swift’s video won over, again, Beyonce’s, but instead pulled away at the last second. Many took it as a joke, but after his comments on E!, it looks like it was quite the opposite.
West performed twice at the GRAMMYs, first with his rendition of his song “Only One” and then again with Rihanna and Paul McCartney for “FourFiveSeconds.”
