Okay, one thing is pretty evident by now. Kanye West, or Ye as he prefers to be called, is unmissable. Be it his antics or achievements, the rapper and entrepreneur has always managed to remain relevant and viral. But it's because of the antics that we missed seeing him celebrate his achievement, as he won two awards at the 2022 Grammys.

While one of the awards was for 'Best Melodic Rap Performance', the other one was for 'Best Rap Song.' Having bagged the trophy for 'Jail,' a collaborative track with Jay-Z from 'Donda,' Ye was supposed to perform at the prestigious award show before he was reportedly barred due to his social media tirades. He was also nominated for 'Album of the Year' and 'Best Rap Album,' but they were ultimately given to Jon Batiste and Tyler, the Creator. The win leaves Ye and Jay-Z with a whopping 24 Grammys each.

In recent times, Ye's behavior has been found to be concerning by many, as the rapper has been going on endless rants attacking Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson. He was even banned from posting on Instagram for 24 hours after lashing out at celebrities such as Trevor Noah and D.L. Hughley. However, Julia Fox has come out in Ye's defense calling him a harmless person. "I just think that’s his artistic creative expression," Fox said speaking to TMZ. There were rumors of Ye checking into a mental facility but his representatives have quashed it in a statement to Yahoo, adding that he is "focused on taking care of himself, being a present and loving father and a creative genius."
