Like husband, like wife! Rather than feel awkward that her husband Kanye West was going around slamming Beck’s win on Sunday, Feb. 8 at the 2015 Grammy Awards, Kim Kardashian was right behind her man!
The reality TV star gathered her celebrity pals together to pose for a shocked-face selfie, showing her incredulity that her pal Beyonce was beaten out by Beck to the Album of the Year award.
“This is the Beck won that award face?!?!?!” Kardashian captioned a snap shared via Instagram of herself, John Legend, and Chrissy Teigen pulling surprised faces at the awards show.
Kardashian is wide-eyed in the photo, while Legend is opening his lips in shock and wife Teigen has her fist inserted almost entirely into her mouth.
Earlier in the evening, West stormed the stage during Beck’s acceptance speech, but seemed to think better of interrupting this time around, unlike his VMAs protest in 2009 when he burst into Taylor Swift’s moment of glory, declaring Beyonce had been robbed of the gong.
But while the audience initially assumed West’s protest was a joke nod to his prior antics, he made his feelings about Beck’s win (and Beyonce’s loss) very clear during a post-show interview with E!
“I just know that the Grammys, if they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us,” he blasted. “We ain’t gonna play with them no more. And Beck needs to respect artistry and he should’ve given his award to Beyonce.”
Other celebs also expressed surprise that the “XO” hitmaker hadn’t scooped the Album of the Year prize, but didn’t disrespect Beck whilst doing so.
Multiple award winner Sam Smith admitted he was “very shocked” at the outcome, but added, “I also thought Beck really, really deserved it. He’s amazing and his performance was a real moment tonight.”
