Grammys: Garbage Singer Shirley Manson Slams "Complete Twat" Kanye West

Jeff Miller

Manson was responding to Kanye's post-Grammys rant that Beck's album of the year win was disrespecting artistry.

Garbage singer Shirley Manson took to Facebook to respond to Kanye West's now now-infamous post-Grammys rant over Beck winning album of the year, and she didn't mince words. 

The Scottish singer took Yeezus to task on his rudeness and his savage attack on Beck's own talents, telling him to "grow up." Manson also referred to West as a "complete twat" and said Beyonce didn't need him to fight her battles, as "she's got everything covered perfectly well on her own."

The full letter from Manson is below. 

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.
