Never mess with the Queen B or you'll get stung.
We all bowed down to Beyoncé's powerful and flawless performance at this year's Grammys.
Time after time she continues to prove why she is an iconic performer and legendary singer, which is why her album of the year award snub led to merited critiques of the Recording Academy.
Beyoncé's loss to Adele floored everyone — including Adele — and prompted dialogues about Black artists constantly being overlooked by awards shows.
While some simply agreed with Adele's win, others went as far to discredit Beyoncé's talent.
One of those people was Carlos Santana, who defended Adele by taking a dig at Beyoncé.
"I think that Adele won because she can sing, sing," the 69-year-old musician told the Australian Associated Press. He then further explained why he believes Beyoncé didn't take home the award.
"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."
He then went on to further shade the "Lemonade" artist by adding, "[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."
After he received severe backlash, Santana took to his Facebook account to clear the air.
Although he wanted to praise Adele for her great night, he says that his comments on Beyoncé were misconstrued.
He wrote, "My intent was to congratulate Adele on her amazing night at the Grammies. My comment about Beyoncé 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 Beyoncé and her family all the best."
Bottom line: Don't. Mess. With. The Beyhive.
