LOS ANGELES — Kanye West almost pulled another Kanye at the Grammy Awards.
Beck was as surprised as the rest of the audience Sunday night when he won album of the year for "Morning Phase," beating out expected victor Beyoncé.
And just as when Taylor Swift beat Beyoncé at MTV's Video Music Awards in 2009, Kanye got involved.
West briefly popped up on stage beside Beck, who appeared to be looking around for help. West smiled and quickly jumped down, but not before getting guffaws from Beyoncé and Jay Z.
Most everyone on social media thought he was joking - but on the "E" after-show, he went on one of his famous tirades showing there was no joke about the interruption.
"The Grammy's - if they want real artists to keep coming back - they need to stop playing with us. We ain't gonna play with them any more," West said.
He went on to say that artists were slapped in the face, and that Beck should hand over his Grammy to Beyonce.
