Shirley Manson Calls Out Kanye West On Facebook, Says Beyonce Can Fight Her Own Battles


It should surprise no one to find out several artists are blasting Kanye West after he voiced his displeasure with the Grammys after Beck’s win for Album of the Year. We reported the story to you yesterday. The 37-year-old rapper claimed Beck needed to “respect artistry” and hand the award over to Beyonce.

“At this point, we tired of it. What happens is, when you keep on diminishing art, and not respecting the craft, and smacking people in the face after they deliver monumental feats of music.” He said during an interview with E! after the Grammys.

It looks like Kanye is all alone in this Flawless boat of his. Several musicians have criticized West for his comments, including the lead singer of the rock band Garbage. Shirley Manson published an open letter to her Facebook page on Monday, and she didn’t hold back her true feelings.

It is YOU who is so busy disrespecting artistry. 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.

She then continued her rant, at one point writing, “Grow up and stop throwing your toys around. You are making yourself look like a complete t–t.” Manson ended the letter by saying Beyonce can fight her own battles…

Ps. 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.

Damn. Tell us how you really feel! Geez. Honestly, I think this whole situation is being blown out of proportion. At this point, Kanye’s rants should just be considered entertainment. Would any of us still be talking about the Grammys if Kanye didn’t go off on this rant? No. It’s just entertainment.

Don’t take it seriously. Instead, laugh at how bewildered Kim Kardashian looked during his rant…
