As we all know by now, Beyoncé lost out on Album of the Year at the Grammys to Adele, much to Adele’s dismay. However, one person who thought this happened exactly how it should have is Bey’s 2003 Super Bowl co-performer, Carlos Santana.
In an interview in Australia earlier this week, Santana said:
“I think that Adele won because she can sing, sing. She doesn’t bring all the dancers and props, she can just stand there and she just stood there and sang the song and that’s it, and this is why she wins. With all respect to our sister Beyoncé, Beyoncé is very beautiful to look at and it’s more like modelling kind of music – music to model a dress – she’s not a singer, singer, with all respect to her.”
Of course, he was SWIFTLY attacked by the BeyHive, and he has since taken to Facebook with an apology. The damage is done, though. You said what you said!
“I would like to clarify a comment that was reported when I was doing an interview for some upcoming shows in Australia & New Zealand. My intent was to congratulate Adele on her amazing night at the Grammies. My comment about Beyonce was regretfully taken out of context. I have the utmost respect for her as an artist and a person. She deserves all the accolades that come her way. I wish Beyonce and her family all the best.”
