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.

    Kanye’s mother died very young I guess she didn’t get a chance to teach her son some humility and good manners He will never be successful until he learns to take that chip off of his shoulder.

    I think the Grammy became a joke when certain artists began receiving awards for songs they themselves couldn’t sing live. I see Beck as someone who could go on stage and sing his album while other certain artists need “”recording studio assistance”” to electronically enhance, tweek ,auto tune their perfomance (which is basically lip-synching ) .

    I’ve never felt Beyonce got robbed. Yes she may have a good album but she doesn’t sing……..she performs.

      Someone like Kimye will soon realize that when it comes to Beyonce. She ( the lil misses ) comes in second. I’ve never seen Kanye defend his wife nor incite public humiliation to sing Kim’s praises..
