Carlos Santana Backtracks on Beyonce Critique


Over the past few days music fans have been debating whether or not Beyonce got robbed at the Grammys after receiving two awards out of nine nominations for her critically acclaimed Lemonade album.

After declaring Beyonce lost Album of the Year to Adele because Adele is the better singer musician Carlos Santana backtracks...

Santana was quoted telling an Australian newspaper,
"I think that Adele won because she can sing, sing."
"With all respect to our sister Beyonce, Beyonce is very beautiful to look at and it's more like modelling kind of music - music to model a dress - she's not a singer, singer, with all respect to her."
After his requisite dragging by the BeyHive Carlos claimed his words were taken out of context.

he told tjhe truth the first time. Beyonce shows up and does what they tell her, puts her wig and makeup on and then does the dance stops they tell her to. Nothing wrong with that. Adel is a true singer. The two are very different. Adel sings her own words. Everything Beyonce does it coming from someone else. Get over it she lost the main award.

Simple: Beyonce is an entertainer. Adele is a singer.

Beyonce is an entertainer/performer her vocals are great but at this point in her career she's more into her visuals. And why he had to backtrack? Is beyonce gonna put a hit out on Carlos? It's damn near idol worship at this point regarding beyonce, the fleehive are demonic!

There two things women pop stars do when they know they're in survival mode as an excuse for dwindling popularity.

1. Take off more clothes.
2. Have babies.

I don't see a backtrack anywhere in sight but the dense group of insects who worship Beyonce will see this as a victory anyway.
Carlos has a right to his opinion and I agree with both his statements.

No need to back-track, he's absolutely right.

Yes, I'm That Leah said...

Carlos needs to take back his back track and say it again....and again... and again...

Carlos said it.... no f's were given. And I agree.

Where are the lies? Bey's no Whitney Houston and she knows it. Adele aint either but her style harkens back to her better than anyone else in the pop world. Still, this doesn't completely explain Adele's win. Taylor Swift has won album of the year TWICE and she can't sing for shit. It's more of a popularity contest and Adele is clearly more popular than Bey among industry voters. The Carters have to know at this point that they aren't as favored anymore.

Did anyone besides me hear how flat Adele was when she sung live on Sunday? I mean I do like the Adele's songs which are all different versions of the same story song in the same three low notes but I digress.. I guess standing in one place singing flat is what we consider greatness. Oh Wells.. peace and blessings

Beyonce had a decent voice but she CHOSE to be an entertainer. Live with what you do; Adele has a better voice and chose to strengthen it throughout the years.

@ 12:17 your not the only one..I heard the flatness is Adele's voice also. I was not impressed with her performance

I am not a Beyoncé fan but I can't for the life of me see the greatness in Adele.beyonce has a better voice.
I prefer a 1000 Times Amy Winehouse.

Adele has a rich voice that thankfully can still belt great notes, but she hasn't chosen to strengthen it when she still smokes cigarettes. Tone and volume don't make you a better singer. They make you louder. Beyoncé is hardly the best singer alive, but Adele STILL can't accomplish many of the things that Beyoncé can vocally and she knows it.

Shut the fuck up all you up in here defending beyonces yodeling ass just cause shes black. Adele can sing circles around beyonce what yall talking about. Just cause im black doesn't mean i always have to choose the poor lil black girl, foh. It's about talent.

Adele can sing but is vastly overrated in my opinion, Beyonce isn't that great a vocalist but can put on a good show.

Carlos Santana was right ... no lies were spoken. I am tired of her minions jumping on people just because they don't buy into the Beyonce hype. I swear her fans are like fleas ... they bite, they are hard to get rid of, and they suck the life out of you.

The only reason alot of these celebrities backtrack on their comments, is because they don't want to have to deal with the unstable BeyHive. Just because someone backtracks, it doesn't change the way that they "TRULY" feel in their heart. Which is what the BeyHive doesn't seem to understand. The BeyHive thinks that they've won when someone cowers and/or backtracks when it comes to Beyonce. Please! They're just telling you what you want to hear, so you can get off of their backs. But, it still doesn't change the way that they feel. So, what's your point??

Adele deserved every last one of those awards she received!!!! Beyonce's album didn't deserve it!!!!
Beyonce remember your peers are voting for you and they remember that poor white kid who you stole from to create or post his creation as your albums body of work. Beyonce can't win everything. Also Beyonce can't and shouldn't think no matter what type of music she bring outs is great; most of it hasn't been. The truth be told the only album I would play of hers would be her 1st album. Iconic music is music that never dies, her albums have been garbage for a long time. The academy (her peers) voted on the best material and while her message of telling JAyz he better stop cheating and using afros and power to the people fashion looks; doesn't count as album of the year. Adele I pray you don't seem ungreatful for your winnings; your body of work was better and you should remind your team of that! Hell some of them were standing behind you probably thinking; girl please we worked hard for you!!!! Beyonce knew you were going clean up at this award show; and the truth be told she probably didn't want to come BUT she didn't want everyone to know how she is really a sore looser. We aren't stupid they tell these celebrities what awards they will receive. Again; Good job Adele!!!

@7:12 touche! i agree wholeheartedly. I like beyonce's first 2 albums. The music that she's putting out now and has been completely and utterly GARBAGE! and as someone stated she is an ENTERTAINER and good at it and NOT A SINGER! i hope she takes some much needed time off once she has her babies, and if she decides to come back she comes with some new material that's worthy of people hearing. there is no comparision when it comes to Adele...

Adele's voice is not rich at all.

A rich full voice is Amy Winehouse, Toni Braxton, Whitney Houston, Brandy, and Mariah (circa 90s)

Adele has power but there's nothing rich about her vocals. And for some reason she is always flat and pitchy live. I have yet to see a performance wherein she sounds like the studio version of her albums.

This is coming from someone who has all 3 albums. I'm a fan but I know she's not a good live performer which is indicative of her true vocal ability.

As much as I dislike Beyoncé, you will never get a flat note during her live performances, on the other hand her voice is not rich and she does too many runs and too much screaming. Surprised her vocal cords aren't strained by now. She has no vocal control unlike the women I previously mentioned.
