Madonna Tells Kanye West to Stop Looking for Justice at Awards Shows
Madonna think Kanye West should kindly take a seat. Speaking to Rolling Stone, the singer said that she felt Kanye West's awards show outbursts have been misguided, likening the search for justice at the Grammys to "trying to find a needle in a haystack." She advised West to "Just go and have fun," adding that she believes the rapper and producer takes things "too seriously." West, who co-produced several tracks on Madonna's next album, Rebel Heart, was recently in the news for his faux-interruption of Beck's acceptance speech at the Grammys, where he was the recipient of the Best New Album trophy for his Morning Phase. Kanye feigned a repeat of the incident at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, when he interrupted Taylor Swift's Best Female Video acceptance speech, taking the microphone out of the singer's hand in the process. In both cases, he was urging the awards committees to give the title to work of Beyonce's.
As for West's career, his seventh album, So Help Me God, seems to be coming imminently. Though no official release date has been announced, "All Day," the Allan Kingdom- and Theophilus London-featuring single--that now sports a Paul McCartney sample as the outro--was released to radio this morning (Mar. 2.).
