Legendary musician Carlos Santana outraged the #BeyHive when he suggested that Beyoncé Knowles lost the Album of the Year Grammy to Adele Adkins because Beyoncé sucks as a singer.
“I think that Adele won because she can sing, sing,” he told the New Zealand Herald. “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.”
After the BeyHive dragged Mr. Santana to Kingdom Come, he walked back his statement, stopping just short of issuing an outright apology.
The 69-year-old guitarist wrote on Facebook.com:
“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.”
But Santana’s half-apology wasn’t enough. So Beyoncé, who is expecting twins, gave Santana the finger. How tacky of Bey to include her mother in her ratchetness.
