CARLOS SANTANA DISSES BEYONCE … THEN WALKS IT BACKFebruary 15, 2017
It all started after the 69-year-old gave an interview and commented on Adele‘s win at the Grammys on Sunday.
“I think that Adele won because she can sing-sing,” he told the New Zealand Herald. “With all respect to our sister Beyonce, Beyonce 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.” Boy, bye!
Obviously the Beyhive went nuclear and read the 10-time Grammy winner to filth. Hive honorary chairperson Erica Ash gave Dish Nation an hysterical first-hand account of the backlash.
After recognizing the error of his ways, Santana attempted to rectify the travesty by walking back his blasphemous words in a Facebook post.
“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.” TRUST!
While Bey has not commented on the trifling situation, it should be noted that Santana appeared to have no issue with “modeling music” when he performed with the “Formation” singer at the Super Bowl pregame show in 2003.
