Singer Shirley Manson slates Kanye West calling him ‘small and petty.’
Garbage singer Shirley Manson and songwriter has berated Kanye West for the tantrum he threw over Beck’s big Grammy win, calling the rapper “small and petty and spoilt.” The Scottish singer blasted the “Only One” singer in a lengthy-post on Facebook Monday, saying he was “making yourself look like a complete t–t.”
“It is YOU who is so busy disrespecting artistry,” Manson fumed. “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,” she added. “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. Grow up and stop throwing your toys around,” the “Stupid Girl” singer said. Manson then closed the missive by assuring West that “Beyoncé doesn’t need you fighting any battles on her account.”
West crudely inserted himself into the awards show Sunday by storming the stage just as Beck was accepting his award for album of the year. He later went on a tirade against the singer, saying Beyoncé was more deserving of the award.
