Shirley Manson has slammed Kanye West following his Imma-Let-You-Finish-style attack against Beck at the Grammy Awards.
When Beck beat Beyoncé for Album of the Year on Sunday night, Kim Kardashian’s husband went off on not only the award show, but also the 44-year-old musician, saying he “needed to respect the artistry” — and now, the lead singer of Garbage is putting the rapper in his place.

“Dear Kanye West, it is YOU who is so busy disrespecting artistry,” she wrote on Facebook yesterday, Feb. 9.
“You disrespect your own remarkable talent and more importantly you disrespect the talent, hard work and tenacity of all artists when you go so rudely and savagely after such an accomplished and humble artist like Beck. You make yourself look small and petty and spoilt.
“In attempting to reduce the importance of one great talent over another, you make a mockery of all musicians and music from every genre, including your own. Grow up and stop throwing your toys around. You are making yourself look like a complete tw*t.
“P.S. I am pretty certain Beyoncé doesn’t need you fighting any battles on her account. Seems like she’s got everything covered perfectly well on her own.”

Though countless people have argued Kanye’s point by explaining Beck single-handedly produced his award-winning album, ‘Morning Phase,’ even he admitted to kinda, sorta agreeing with Kanye.
“I thought she was going to win. Come on, she’s Beyoncé,” he confessed after the show, adding of Kanye, “I still love him and think he’s a genius. I aspire to do what he does.”
