During a very gloomy Grammy Awards, the Internet perked up when Kanye West appeared to pull a Kanye West and stormed the stage in protest of Beyoncé not winning one of the biggest prizes of the night — album of the year — which went to Beck for “Morning Phase.” However, Kanye grinned, his wife Kim Kardashian grinned; even Jay Z and Beyoncé looked mildly horrified but eventually started laughing.

The gist: He was not pleased. “Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé,” he said, adding: “Y’all know what it meant when ‘Ye walked on the stage.”
