Bret Hartman/CBSIs Beyonce upset with Kanye West? Apparently, the singer feels that the outspoken rapper is bad for her brand, even though he’s best friends with her husband Jay Z.
Following his antics during Sunday’s Grammy Awards, the New York Daily News cites unnamed sources as saying that Beyonce was not amused when Kanye told media outlets that Beck didn’t deserve to win the Grammy for Album of the Year.
“Beyoncé’s pissed at Jay Z for allowing Kimye so close to them,” the paper cites the source as saying. “Beyoncé and her team have worked very hard to put out the exact image they want out there — it’s super-controlled and managed and manicured. So for Kanye to jump up on stage without it being planned or part of a discussion is exactly the type of drama Beyoncé did not want with Kim and Kanye and the tabloid lives they live.”
The spy adds that if Kanye would have contained himself, people would have forgotten that she lost the coveted trophy. More importantly, people wouldn’t pointed out that her self-titled effort has far more writers and producers than Beck’s set.
“It just sort of overexposed her for no reason and kind of diminished the pedestal she sits on,” says the source. “Jay is very loyal to Kanye, but it’s the Kim and Kanye drama that Bey has always requested they avoid,” the source added. “This isn’t a totally malicious or a big fight, more of an ‘I told you so’ from Bey to Jay.”
