By now, we all know that Adele beat out Beyoncé for ‘Album of the Year’ at the Grammy Awards ceremony last Sunday. Naturally, the Beyhive was not impressed and many fans took to social media to express their outrage. Fans of Beyoncé weren’t the only ones who thought that she was robbed – Adele herself said in her acceptance speech that Beyoncé deserved to win.
However, not everyone believes that Beyoncé should have deserved the win. Carlos Santana fully supported Adele’s win by saying, “I think that Adele won because she can sing, sing.”
Santana added, “With all respect to our sister Beyoncé, Beyoncé is very beautiful to look at and it’s more like modeling kind of music ― music to model a dress ― she’s not a singer, singer, with all respect to her. . . Adele 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.”
Fans of Beyoncé, passionate as always, took to social media to go at Santana. Later, Santana himself tried to clear up the controversy by posting on Facebook:
“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.
Despite this latest controversy, both ladies have continuously proved themselves to be talented singers.
