As Kanye West gears up for another album release, he’s getting back to his very public antics–by attacking Taylor Swift’s credibility once again, by saying that Swift did not deserve the Grammy Award for Album of the Year.

“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,” West told Access Hollywood in an interview.

West famously interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech during the VMA’s, claiming another nominee, Beyonce, deserved the award over Swift. West has made headlines numerous times over the years, complaining about the recipients of music awards, most often claiming he was the deserving party.

    really get the fuck of of kanye’s dick, he is fucking right, there are so many other talent young artists and taylor swift is not even that good, there are so many other albums that should of won that award, many other good better country singers who could of got it but really this shit is gay

    This is a completely innacurate representation of what Kanye was saying. He was arguing that more independent artists deserve a chance to be looked at rather than just who the Grammy’s consider great. He also made the point that the Grammy’s discriminate against popular music just because it’s popular. He’s right – why did Herbie Hancock deserve to win a Grammy just a few years ago over someone like Amy Winehouse who actually had an impact on culture that year?

    really people i think taylor gets what she works for. If kanye wants to be in that award he should make better songs and work for it. Doing wat he did just made him look stupid
