On Wednesday morning, a passionate and candid Kanye West talked to Ryan Seacrest all about the Grammys — from what made him crash the stage during Beck’s win to racism to artistry and more.
But maybe the biggest news is that Kanye and Taylor Swift plan to collaborate on new music.
“Yeah, she wants to get in the studio and we’re definitely going to go in,” he said Wednesday morning on Seacrest’s KISS-FM radio show.
“Any artist with an amazing point of view, perspective, fan base, I’m down to get in the studio and work,” Kanye said, “I don’t discriminate, I don’t have an elitism of music because of like how many Grammys or you know, the amount of ratings you get on an album. I think that everyone loves music whether they love hip hop, alternative, country, and if I could be involved in giving people any type of energy, advice in the studio, whether you’re Beyoncé, whether you’re Taylor Swift, whether you’re Jay Z, whether you’re Beck, whoever, and they can be reciprocal with that, I’d like to be involved with that.”
Now about that Beck Grammy moment:
He says there were “voices in my head” that told him to go up onstage. And he doesn’t know how it is being spun in the media, but he thought it was a good moment.
“I don’t know exactly what the press has been [saying] because I don’t keep up with that — but at the Grammys when I did go up onstage and left off, there was a really good vibe about it, and everybody was laughing and smiling.”
As for his serious post-Grammys rant with E!:
“Well you know what happened? It’s because I sat there and I kind of let that [smolder] and I was asked my opinion and I was given a platform. And when given a platform, it’s very hard as we know — and I’m going to talk in third person like I’m a crazy person — but it’s very hard for Kanye West to not be very true and vocal to what he feels. You know, it’s like people take the Grammys for granted in a way because of the commercials, because a lot of the musicians are very rich and everything, but this is our Super Bowl. You know, and someone’s got to be mad that [Marshawn Lynch] didn’t get the ball.”
