Listen: Kanye compares Grammys incident to Seahawks final Super Bowl XLIX play call
Wednesday February 11th, 2015

Kanye West spoke with Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday about his controversial post-Grammy comments in which he said that Album of the Year winner Beck should give his award to Beyoncé.

West apologized for his remarks, saying he should have chosen his words more wisely, and then used a sports analogy comparing his friend Beyoncè to Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch.

"The Grammys are artists’ Super Bowl, and somebody’s gotta be mad that Marshawn didn’t get the ball.” 

Julio Franco signs playing contract in Japan at 56

In this analogy, Beast Mode is the football equivalent of Sasha Fierce.

Check out the whole entertaining interview below, including West talking about Taylor Swift's reaction to his faux-stage storming routine
