Last night's Grammys gave us enough new and outrageous Kanye quotes to get us through the rest of the winter, at least. Once again, West derided the awards ceremony for disrespecting both BeyoncÃ© and inspiration. He told E!,
"...When you keep on diminishing art, and not respecting the craft, and smacking people in the face after they deliver monumental feats of music, you're disrespectful to inspiration. And we as musicians have to inspire people who go to work every day and they listen to that BeyoncÃ© album, they feel like it takes them to another place, then they do this whole promotional event that, they'll run the music over somebody's speech, the artist, because they wanted commercial advertising."But even though BeyoncÃ© didn't end up taking home the award for Album of the Year, it looks like her ability to deliver monumental feats of music remains unfazed. In a red carpet interview with Billboard at the Grammys, producer Detail hinted at a BeyoncÃ© and Jay Z joint album due out this year. "I'm working with a couple of new projects that I don't want to unveil, and me and BeyoncÃ© and Jay Z are actually doing something together this year... When you think of Jay and Bey together, you think 'album.' You should already know." When asked if the project would come out this year, Detail said, "In my imaginary mind, I will work to say it's true."
As witnessed by his lackluster verse on "Drunk in Love," Jay Z tends to make everything BeyoncÃ© does worse, but we're excited for this Watch the Throne-style collaboration the less. We'll also accept it as a much needed apology. Watch the interview with Detail, above.
