Kanye West has opened up about the incident at the Grammy Awards where he pretended to interrupt Beck's acceptance speech.

The incident which caused a social media frenzy in February occurred when Beck accepted the award for Best Album with West following the musician on stage and then returning to his seat. Later on in the evening he claimed the award should have gone to Beyonce and that Beck should respect artistry.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, the rapper retracted his statements.

He said that he still thought that Beyonce's album was the best but he was inaccurate with the fact that Beck's album was not artistry especially as he plays 14 instruments on the album which won the award.

However if you thought Kanye West might be calming down, he later went on in the interview to compare himself to Leonardo Da Vinci and a chair.

The rapper is due to headline Glastonbury music festival in the UK next weekend.
