Listen my children and you shall hear: Beck won the Album of the Year award at the 57th Grammy Awards for his record, “Morning Phase.” The alt-rocker beat out other worthy contenders like Beyoncé, Ed Sheeran, Pharrell Williams and Sam Smith. Even Kanye West couldn’t believe it, and he motioned towards the stage as if to pull another “Imma let you finish.” Fortunately, the two men settled it without bringing Beyoncé into the fray.
But the upset quickly spilled over to Twitter as young fans asked some serious questions:
Is anyone acting like Beck deserved that....Did anyone know he dropped a new album this year? did anyone know who is was? i definitely didnt
