After his emotional interview yesterday with Zane Lowe, Kanye West was feeling contrite.
So he got on Twitter and offered an official public apology to Beck, whose "artistry" he slandered after the 2015 Grammy Awards.
This was an apology we all saw coming. 'Ye had already conceded that he hadn't listened to any of Beck's Grammy winning album 'Morning Phase' when he went on his now-notorious pro-Beyonce rant. And West had also admitted that he had heard some the LP since the Grammy debacle, and thought it was quite good.
He also issued an apology to Bruno Mars that may have seemed a bit more from left field. But the backstory is that in 2013 Kanye went off on Mars during a stop in Brooklyn for the Yeezus tour. He was angry that Mars had done so well at the 2013 MTV Music Awards.
"Bruno Mars won all the motherfucking awards," 'Ye ranted. "And I was thinking about what Rick Rubin told me, because I don’t give a fuck about no TV show. But what I care about is if you’re an artist and you work hard as fuck and the streets say that you deserve that shit. Then can’t no motherfucking networks try to gas everybody up so they can sell some product with the prettiest motherfucker out."Here are the apologies. In Mars's case, it came with a job offer.
I would like to publicly apologize to Beck, I’m sorry Beck. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 26, 2015
I also want to publicly apologize to Bruno Mars, I used to hate on him but I really respect what he does as an artist. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 26, 2015
I also would love for Bruno to sing this hook on this song 88 Keys / Puff and I produced… I even asked Tyler to shoot the vid. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 26, 2015
