Satan gave me a taco and it made me really sick. The chicken was all raw and the grease was mighty thick. The rice was all rancid and the beans were so hard. I was gettin’ kinda dizzy, eatin’ all the lard. There was aphids on the lettuce, an’ I ate every one, An’ after I was done the salsa melted off my tongue. Pieces of tortilla got stuck in my throat, An’ the stains on my clothes burned a hole through my coat.
So in working on my last post I missed the new controversy, which, as the title suggests, is the Grammy awards!
Apparently a lot of you have a problem with the fact that Beck won a Grammy over Beyoncé.
Let me explain you a thing.
Beck has worked toward this moment for fucking years. He pulled himself out of the gutter (literally, Beck was homeless at the start) and clawed his way up to this point. Beck has produced 12 records over the years, and the one he won a Grammy for was one he wrote, performed, and composed for himself by himself.
He EARNED that Grammy. He worked for that Grammy. Beyoncé has won a Grammy every year for the past 13 years. She has 17 Grammys. She doesn’t have to win every single fucking award every year, because she is not the only person in the music industry.
People keep trying to bring race into this, they keep trying to say Beck won this award because he’s white, they call him a nobody.
Beck has written and recorded 12 albums over the past 20 years.
