‘Garbage’ singer Shirley Manson has some harsh words for Kanye West, following the rapper’s claim that Beck should “respect artistry” and give his Album of the Year Grammy to Beyoncé. “It is you who is so busy disrespecting artistry,” she wrote on Facebook in a post that began with “Dear Kanye.”
“You disrespect your own remarkable talents and more importantly you disrespect the talent, hard work and tenacity of all artists when you go so rudely and savagely after such an accomplished and humble artist like Beck. You make yourself look small and petty and spoilt.”
“In attempting to reduce the importance of one great talent over another, you make a mockery of all musicians and music from every genre, including your own,” she continued. “Grow up and stop throwing your toys around. You are making yourself look like a complete twat.”
“I am pretty certain Beyoncé doesn’t need you fighting any battles on her account. Seems like she’s got everything covered perfectly well on her own.”
Beck’s lyrics vs. Beyoncé’s , no comparison, he’s an artist, she’s… pretty and flashy!
