"Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion..."
Beck x Kanye West

Beck has revealed that Kanye West actually liked 'Morning Phase' all along...

Beck stopped past Later... with Jools Holland this week, and chatted amiably to the piano-tinkling host.

The conversation turned to the 2015 Grammy awards, when Beck took home the 'Best Album' gong for his album 'Morning Phase'.

Kanye West wasn't impressed, and his one man stage invasion ended with the rapper telling Beck he should hand the trophy to Beyoncé and "respect artistry".

He recalled: “Eternally, there was this circus of media and the things that Kanye was saying and Beyoncé fans who were angry and that’s something that you don’t ask for.”

“But it’s like: ‘What did you expect?’ Ha! You know, it’s the music business. You’re walking right into centre of the whole thing – it’s a circus.”

Kanye West of course also stage-rushed Taylor Swift, and Jools Holland pointed out that Beck had now joined something of an "elite club".

“We were laughing about it,” he revealed. “She’d had dinner with Kanye after the Grammys thing happened and ‘Morning Phase’ came on in the restaurant they were in and he stopped the conversation and said: ‘What is this? This is good.’ She was smiling and said: ‘This is ‘Morning Phase’!’”

“So even when he went on that whole thing I didn’t take it personal and he reached out after,” he said. “Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion. Ultimately he had let me know that he liked the record.”

Beck will release new album 'Colors' on October 13th... wonder what Yeezy will make of it?
