Last year, the 43-year-old rapper, who is in the midst of his divorce from wife Kim Kardashian, shocked fans by posting a clip of himself urinating onto one of his many Grammys after placing it in a toilet.
It’s one of the most prestigious awards in the showbiz industry, and many musicians would give anything to get their hands on one.
“Trust me… I WON’T STOP,” Kanye wrote as he shared the video on Twitter.
It came amid a social media rant about music labels having ownership of artists’ records.
He’d posted: “90% of the record contracts on the planet are still on a royalty A standard record deal is a trap to NEVER have you recoup, and there’s all these hidden costs like the “distribution fees” many labels put in their contracts to make even more money off our work without even trying.”
Now just a few months later, Kanye has won another Grammy, bringing his total to 22.
His record Jesus Is King has won Best Contemporary Christian Album, with the winner announced ahead of the ceremony being held in Los Angeles tonight and kicking off at midnight in the UK.
The decision seemed to divide music fans.
While one said it was “deserved”, another penned: “he peed on a Grammy Award but they gave him anyway…”
“Embarrassing didn’t deserve,” another suggested.
And one posted: “congrats i guess”
One person asked: “remember what he did??? And he still got a Grammy???”
A Kanye fan responded to them: “I get that but I do also think Kanye’s an innovator in music. That’s how he’s collecting”
Tonight’s Grammy Awards ceremony will include performances from Cardi B, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Harry Styles and Taylor Swift.
Some of the performances have been pre-recorded while others will be shown live with the awards air on television.
The event was previously scheduled to go ahead in January, but it had to be postponed due to a spike in Covid-19 cases in Los Angeles.
Speaking to Variety, first-time Grammy executive producer Ben Winston said: “We’ve designed a set that you could argue makes it an even more exciting show.
“The performers and nominees are each other’s audience, so it’s a room of incredible musicians, all safely distanced from each other, and every 45 minutes a new four groups come in and the [previous] four go out.”
