According to Julia Brucculieri news report, at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards ceremony, Adele took home the award for Album of the Year, beating out Beyoncé for the top prize. The Beyhive wasn’t impressed, nor was Adele herself, who thought Beyoncé deserved the award.
Carlos Santana, on the other hand, fully supports the British singer’s win.
“I think that Adele won because she can sing, sing,” Santana recently told the Australian Associated Press, before elaborating on his opinion.
“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,” the Mexican-American musician added.
In Santana’s opinion, however, Bey uses theatrics to mask her voice.
“Adele can sing, sing. 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,” Santana said. (Reports Julia Brucculieri, Huffington Post).
