Kanye West Beck Apology: Rapper Apologizes, But Is He Being Honest?

It has been more than two weeks since Kanye West looked like he was going to steal the microphone from Beck after his Grammy win, and the rapper had not issued an apology for his actions.

That is until today, when West finally made a public apology to Beck on his official Twitter page.

I would like to publicly apologize to Beck, I’m sorry Beck.

It’s short and to the point, but one has to question if Kanye is being honest with his apology. As the Inquisitr reported over the weekend, West said he had plans to apologize to Beck, but it kept slipping his mind.

“I got [Beck’s] number and I was supposed to call but I just keep forgetting.”

But as West sees it, what he did at the Grammys actually helped Beck.

“Think about all the good stuff that happened to me the past seven to eight days. The person that won the most was Beck, because if I hadn’t done that, his Album of the Year would never be mentioned. Now it’s in all the chatter. ‘Kanye West messes up again.’ I’m already the enemy, so you can’t get no worse than the villain.”

Of course, Kanye didn’t do the same thing he did at the Video Music Awards (VMA) ceremony, when Taylor Swift won over Beyoncé. People thought he was going to, but then West got up to the stage and then backed off from pulling the microphone from Beck.

Beck, himself, had no hard feelings, he said.

“You can’t please everybody, man. I still love him and think he’s a genius. I aspire to do what he does.”

But as Kanye told E! after the Grammys, via USA Today, he was not happy that Beck beat out Beyoncé, and he actually did have plans to make a statement about how she should have won.

“All I know is if the Grammys want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us. We ain’t gonna play with them no more. Flawless, Beyoncé video. Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé, and at this point, we tired of it.”

And it wasn’t just Beck to whom Kanye West issued an apology. On his Twitter page, West apologized to Bruno Mars, and then asked him for a favor.

I also want to publicly apologize to Bruno Mars, I used to hate on him but I really respect what he does as an artist. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 26, 2015

I also would love for Bruno to sing this hook on this song 88 Keys / Puff and I produced… I even asked Tyler to shoot the vid.
