Kanye West Apologizes to Beck, Cries on Camera Over Late Fashion Mentor
It's been an emotional day for the rapper
Kanye West is showing his sensitive side.
In a Tweet on Thursday, the rapper said he’s sorry to Beck for interrupting his Grammys speech and saying the alternative singer should have handed his award to fellow nominee Beyoncé to “respect artistry.”
(To be fair, Beck never seemed bothered by the stunt, telling reporters he admirers both Yeezy and Bey.)
The mea culpa seemed to open the floodgates for the controversial star, who also Tweeted an apology to “Uptown Funk” singer Bruno Mars – and proposed a musical collaboration. That’s the same olive branch he extended to Taylor Swift, the original victim of his award show antics: The two plan to hit the studio together.
West, 37, also got emotional earlier while taping an interview with BBC Radio 1‘s Zane Lowe. While discussing his new Adidas collection, he cried, remembering his late fashion professor Louise Wilson.
“She said, ‘So many students, they don’t give it their all,’ “he recalled tearfully. “‘As soon as they do something good at 2 years old, 3 years old, their parents clap.’ That’s what she said. She just looked at me and said, ‘Kanye, don’t clap.’ ”
