Carlos Santana catch some serious heat from Beyonce beehives after the Grammys on Sunday night over some comments that he made.
The legendary musician congratulates Adele on dominating the Grammys this year and winning Album of the Year over Beyonce. Some folks including Kendrick Lamar and even Adele thinks that Queen Bey should have won that Grammy. Santana thinks that Adele won because she is a real singer and Beyonce is not.
“I think that Adele won because she can sing, sing,” he said in an interview in Australia. “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… 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.”
In a message posted on Facebook, Carlos Santana says his comments were taken out of context. “I would like to clarify a comment that was reported when I was doing an interview for some upcoming shows in Australia & New Zealand,” he said. “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.”
