Did You Miss It? Dr. Luke Disses Beyonce Over Kanye West Rant During "Album Of The Year" Win:
Looks like the "Party In The U.S.A." producer has received some backlash, after retweeting a tweet on Twitter, based on Sunday night's controversy at the Grammys, as Beck won "Album Of The Year." Of course, many took to social media expressing their opinion, toward the winner, and I personally didn't expect Beck to win, as I don't know much of his music, and it seems like he didn't have as much success as the other nominees with his album, "Morning Phase," commercially. During the win, many were outraged, as neither Sam Smith or Beyonce took home the Grammy. Kanye West, even expressed his views toward Beck winning the award saying during an interview with "E!" saying, "I don't know what he said, 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. Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé, and at this point, we tired of it. Because 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, you're disrespectful to inspiration and we as musicians have to inspire people who go to work every day, and they listen to that Beyoncé album and they feel like it takes them to another place."
Dr. Luke recently took to twitter, retweeting a tweet, that dealt with what went down on Sunday night at the Grammys, which read, "Kanye West told a ni**a who plays like 14 instruments that he needs to respect the artistry of a woman who needs 4 writers for one song." Just the fact that Beck plays 14 instruments, already gains my respect for him as an artist, and it shows that he is much more talented, and capable of more as an artist, than Beyonce as she does actually need about 4 writers for one song. (Fun Fact: Beyonce needed eight writers to help with the songwriting of "Drunk In Love.") A song that barely has any true meaning to it. (smh..) Well, of course if someone else retweeted this, they wouldn't be the center of attention, as you wouldn't expect this from a successful songwriter and producer like Dr. Luke. He's not lying though. Still, do you guys think the media should put Beyonce in this, as she had nothing to do with Kanye's rant? Also, do you think Dr. Luke has the right to express his views toward this?
