Kanye West complains about Grammys 2014: ‘What are they trying to say?’

Remember when your mother used to crack you over the knuckles when you complained you didn't get enough candy from a neighbor when they handed out treats? Then at home you were given the longest lecture of your life? Kanye West obviously never was told not to complain about his blessings. After getting two nominations from the Grammys for his album, he is now saying it wasn't enough. On Tuesday night the artist was ranting on stage at his Phoenix concert.

“Yeezus is the top one or two album on every single list,” said Kanye West at the US Airways Center. ''But only gets two nominations from the Grammys. What are they trying to say?''

While it’s impossible to second guess the decisions of the Grammys, what they could have been saying is Kanye was deserving of two nominations and not any more. Or maybe they were being generous. Either way, it wasn't enough for the artist and he is rallying the fans for support.

Kanye West might be a great artist, but this latest round of over the top antics has people turned off. There are a number of great artists who don’t compare themselves to others and know they are good performers, but at least pretend that the opinion of the fans matter. Complaining about the lack of nominations is tacky and while people might forget his outrageous comparisons, nobody is going to forget Kanye is being rude for asking for more.
