While no one is really all that surprised to hear about Kanye West going off on some sort of tangent at last nightâ€™s Grammy Awards, everyone still had a tiny cringe moment when we thought he was about to interrupt Beckâ€˜s Album of the Year acceptance speech.
Funny enough, though, the alt-rock award winner himself wasnâ€™t actually all that worried about West coming on stage â€” in fact, he was actually kind of stoked about it!
â€œI was just so excited he was coming up,â€ Beck toldÂ US WeeklyÂ during the Universal Music Group after-party. â€œ[West] deserves to be onstage as much as anybody. How many great records has he put out in the last five years, right?â€
The 44-year-old wasnâ€™t even offended that Kanye suggested he didnâ€™t deserve the award over BeyoncÃ©.
â€œI thought she was going to win. Come on, sheâ€™s BeyoncÃ©! â€¦ You canâ€™t please everybody, man. I still love [West] and think heâ€™s genius. I aspire to do what he does.â€
However, several other celebrities werenâ€™t as complimentary toward Westâ€™s controversial rant, taking to Twitter to share their own reactions:

Hey Kanye, how much does Beyonce need before you think shes getting a fair shake out there? Just curious.

Radio Shack outlived its usefulness; starting to feel the same about Kanye.

Still have nightmares that Kanyeâ€™s gonna bust through my front door and take my damn 1995 American Comedy Award from me.

But the best reaction of the night undoubtedly goes to Bey and Jay Z:
