These People are Outraged at Beck’s Album of the Year Grammy


Hey Beyhive: You’re not alone.

The majority of viewers who tuned in to the broadcast of the 57th annual Grammy Awards were nearly treated to another Kanye West outburst over a Beyoncé snub, as Beck’s Morning Phase won over Queen Bey’s opus for Album of the Year. (Morning Phase came in at No. 16 on our 2014 Pazz & Jop poll, while Beyoncé’s self-titled album, released late in 2013, was No. 4 on our poll for that year.) Beck was thrilled, clearly, but the internet? They weren’t necessarily feeling the “loser, baby” narrative that played a key part in forming the foundation of his career.

Here’s a look at some of the more passionate reactions that Bey’s loss and Beck’s gain elicited via Twitter shortly following the awarding of 2015’s Album of the Year. #whoisbeck indeed.


First up: Yeah, we were holding our breath.

So was Jay-Z.

As for the rest: the #whoisbeck hashtag says it all, really.
