    While it’s not uncommon for musicians to have feuds and creative differences, here's one of the more random face-offs we’ve ever seen.

    You may remember that moment at Sunday night's Grammys when Kanye West stormed the stage after Beck won the Album of the Year award for Morning Phase (a victory that beat out, among other worthy contenders, Beyoncé's self-titled album from last year). You’ll then remember Kanye going to E! News and saying that “Beck needs to respect artistry” and “he should have given his award to Beyoncé.”

    Beck, who has released 12 studio albums over 20 years -- and plays more than 10 instruments -- took it all in stride later telling Us Weekly, "You can't please everybody, man," and "I still love him and think he's genius."

    Beck may have forgiven Kanye, but don’t get Shirley Manson started on it. The Garbage frontwoman took to Facebook yesterday to share her feelings on the subject. Calling Kanye "small," "petty," and "spoilt" among other things, she spat out: “Dear Kanye West, It is YOU who is so busy disrespecting artistry.”

    She continued: “In attempting to reduce the importance of one great talent over another, you make a mockery of all musicians and music from every genre, including your own.”

    It seems that many out in the Twittersphere agree with Shirley’s sentiment, including comedian David Spade -- who tweeted in regards to the Beyoncé side of this equation with the following observation: “Hey Kanye, how much does Beyoncé need before you think she’s getting a fair shake out there? Just curious.”

    There was a couple of Garbage tunes that I remember backwards and forwards. Kanye, not so much. I remember he got his ass kicked by a street sign.

    Dear Kanye West

    It is YOU who is so busy disrespecting artistry.
    You disrespect your own remarkable talents and more importantly you disrespect the talent, hard work and tenacity of all artists when you go so rudely and savagely after such an accomplished and humble artist like BECK.
    You make yourself look small and petty and spoilt.
    In attempting to reduce the importance of one great talent over another, you make a mockery of all musicians and music from every genre, including your own.
    Grow up and stop throwing your toys around.
    You are making yourself look like a complete twat.

    Ps.I am pretty certain Beyonce doesn't need you fighting any battles on her account. Seems like she's got everything covered perfectly well on her own.


    :lol:

    Finally someone in the music biz had the balls to stand up ... and that someone was Shirley.

    Loved her in Terminator, the Sarah Conner Chronicles.
