Album Of The Year winner hired food truck for Capitol employees
Beck has treated staff at his record label to a waffle breakfast following his success at the Grammys this week.
As Billboard reports, a message distributed to employees of Capitol Records from Beck and Silva Artist Management confirmed that a truck filled with food from Waffles De Liege would be available for them to eat from this morning (February 13).
The leaked email reads: “In a message distributed to the label employees, Beck and Silva Artist Management wrote, “Dictionary.com defines WAFFLE as ‘to speak or write equivocally’ …but it is with NO equivocation that we say THANK YOU for everyone’s hard work in helping ‘Morning Phase’ to win not only the Grammy for ‘Best Rock Album’ but also for the ‘ALBUM OF THE YEAR.’ It was a great night and it’s a victory that we all share. As a means of keeping the celebration going just a little bit longer, we’re sending over our friends from the Waffles De Liege food truck tomorrow morning.”
Speaking after the event, West had been quoted as calling Beck’s Album of the Year win “disrespectful to inspiration” and that it was “diminishing art”. However, he later claimed that he was criticising the Grammy judges rather than Beck himself.
West told reporters: “I wasn’t saying Beck, I said the Grammys. Beck knows Beyoncé should have won.” He continued: “I love Beck, but he didn’t have the album of the year.”
Meanwhile, Beck seemed to agree with Wests initial sentiments, laughing off West’s behaviour by saying: “I was just so excited he was coming up. He deserves to be on stage as much as anybody. How many great records has he put out in the last five years, right?”
Beck even went as far as agreeing that Beyoncé should have beaten him: “Absolutely. I thought she was going to win. Come on, she’s Beyoncé!”
Beck’s latest album ‘Morning Phase’ beat Beyoncé’s self-titled album to the Album Of The Year prize.
The Grammy Awards 2015 took place on Sunday night (February 8) in Los Angeles, hosted by LL Cool J. Check out the full list of winners here.
