Adele Vetoed Beyonce Rihanna Grammy Collab


A little left over Grammy stuff.

According to reports George Michael's manager pitched an idea to Grammy producers for Adele, Beyonce and Rihanna to perform the George Michael tribute but Adele preferred to do it alone...

From Billboard,
...Michael Lippman, George Michael's longtime manager, also had a dream: Grammy host James Corden, whose "Carpool Karaoke" series was launched with Michael in the passenger seat, Adele, Beyonc矇 and Rihanna, each taking a song of a different tempo and era ("Freedom" and "One More Try," among them) in one giant Michael mash-up -- an idea that began to take root, says Ehrlich. But it became quickly evident "how passionate Adele was," Ehrlich adds, "and that she had a vision for what she wanted to do with it."
In case you missed Adele's tribute.

Well, well well - this explains the "mishap" and Adele had to start over - sleazy move.

That would have been a big mess. Beyonce would oversing, Adele's vocals would've been lowered/drowned out and Rihanna's unconventional voice would throw everyone off.
I see the Knowles-Carters are still trying to get Black people to dislike Adele. Shameful.
This is nothing compared to the stuff Maty and Bey pulled when she was in her prime.

I agree it wouldn't have worked.

I'm a huge GM fam and I hate it when people talk about him and only mention the album Faith. His music was incredible. That said, I don't blame Adele. When you feel such a deep connection to someone, you want to make sure their tribute is stellar. For fans of his music, the connection is real.

Fast love by GM is one of his baddest cut.My thats my cut. Adele really ruined that cut I was very disappointed! :(

I'm a Bey stan but I know she will pull a Patti LaBelle and sing over you in a heartbeat. I don't think their three voices would have meshed cohesively together to make it work but sounds like they had a really creative and great idea

Why can't the Beyhive get over the fact that Beyonce lost? Huh?!!! If this were about race then Lauryn Hill would not have won Best New Artist AND AOTY Grammies in the same night! That was because unlike Bey and Rihtard she was a musical genius! Yes, Taylor Swift makes shitty music and did not deserve any AOTY awards but least she can play and write her own music! Fuck Beyonce. She's a spoiled damn brat. She's a nicer version of Kanye with her ego.

GM's song "Everything She Wants" has an outrageous bass line and is a fabulous dance song.

And no one would think Adele was a great singer if she was sister.

Beyonce is good...but Miss Patti is a legend! She is over 7

10:15, I just watched this and I agree with you. She should have sang "One More Try", "Faith" or even a banging version of "Freedom 90."

Oooopps...she is over 70 years old and could sing Beyonce under the bus...in fact Lela James could sing Beyonce under the bus as well!

I keep laughing with who said Beyonce will over sing Adele fucking comical. Adele has more pitch. Beyonce does more runs, runs, uns, uns, uns. more like Patti Labelle.. The mix of them three would of been classic. But the singing would of been a cluster fuck! Glad George Michael Family Choose Adele.

Miss Unit said...

I would of did the same damn thing, not sharing the spotlight with 2 other queens! Lol

Chrissy Snow said...

10:53 You are right. I forgot about the Ledesi debacle.

12:00 What you said about the runs is exactly what I meant by Beyonce oversinging. She can sing but she does too many runs.

Just another bullshit pr article from trahsyonces camp. They are trying to make Adele look bad but it's not going to work.

Rihanna wins again for real. I'm sure her manager probably begged her to show up.

That would have been a better choice. I could t tell you the mount of people that were wondering what George Michael song Adele was even singing. Between that and her tacky stopping (in the middle of a tribute/no to about her performance nonetheless) I honestly stopped paying attention. Prince had the better tribute and I believe GM deserved something more entertaining, as well.

Haaaaa. So this basically means Adele's Grammy speech was fake and her feelings towards Beyonce were fake! Beyonce takes another L

They should've let Keegan-Michael from Keanu sing, he did a better job in the movie.

Now it explains Adele over thanking Beyonce after winning her much deserved award; WOW!!!!!

Anonymous said...

^Yes!!! @5:33 Adele wants nothing to do with Beyonce. Beyonce has been feening to work with Adele since she first came out. And Adele had paid Bey dust since then. Bey you are thirsty. She ditched you on and on again let it go and do your own thing. Adele is excellent alone. You need her for more recognition,she Doesn't Need you

Beyonce is tired and finished...shes running out of talent to leech off of. Her stunts are getting very old and predictable. Plz, do yourself a favor and sit the fuck down somewhere.

That shot sounded like limp wet garbage. What a travesty. She did not embody the essence of George Michael AT ALL. He would have been horrified.

What a flop. And this woman's voice is always off key. She doesn't not perform well live AT ALL. Give us Amy Whinehouse back. At least she had real soul!

SMH

Adele SUCKED!!!!!

Her music sucks too!!!!

Her depressing ass music makes my arse itch!!!!


I think she needed the help!!!!


Now that makes sense why all that extra shit about Her saying Beyonc矇 deserved for album of the year..

I love how POWERFUL BEY IS!!!

She has all you Mitches and Bitches on their feelings!!!

Interesting how much folks keep up with a person that they have the chance to ignore, but they know every bowel movement she has!!不不不不不不不不不

Felicia said...

I had NO idea what song she was singing!!!

2:56 am. U sound biased and jealous. Adele has way more meaningful songs than Bey. And bey and the hive are mad because bey's vapid songs, as of late 2000s, are nothing what Adele would write. It doesn't resonate with people that are looking for something meaningful. Also, Adele sells far more than bey in her classics, and it has nothing to do with her being white. It's the music. At the end of the day, Bey is exposed and has her Petty cards revoked.
