The legendary rocker explained why Adele won the Album of the Year Grammy instead of Beyonce.
Carlos Santana recently issued an apology after the guitarist said that Beyoncé is "not a singer" while explaining in an interview why Adele won the Album of the Year Grammy.
"My intent was to congratulate Adele on her amazing night at the Grammys," Santana wrote on Facebook soon after his published remarks about the Grammys caused backlash. "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."
Santana, the legendary guitarist, has revealed that he’s a supporter of Adele’s album 25 during an interview with the Australian Association Press, “I think that Adele won because she can sing sing," the guitarist said. "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."
Santana also suggested that Beyoncé relies too heavily on theatrics for her performances, which perhaps penalized her in the eyes of Grammy voters who opted for 25 over Beyonce’s Lemonade.
"[Adele] 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," Santana said, throwing subtle shade at Beyoncé's epic medley of "Love Drought" and "Sandcastles" from during her Grammy performance earlier this week.
