And I’d like to add my voice to Santana’s, “Beyoncé, you can’t sing!”
“With all respect to our sister Beyonce, Beyonce 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[Carlos Santana] said.
According to this article, Santana was congratulating Adele on receiving her Grammy award at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards and stating that she really can sing as opposed to Beyoncé kinda sorta mod-singing as opposed to singing.
As far as I am concerned, Carlos Santana has no reason in the world to backtrack or to apologize for his statement because it is true. I admit that I have not listened to much of what Beyoncé has ‘sung’ but it is only because I cannot get through the end of her ‘songs’, she sounds so bad. And what is with all the near naked gyrating? Real singers have no need to continuously bare all or almost bare all if they do indeed, have a natural talent for singing.
Take Whitney Houston, for example. She had no need to bare her body to help her with her singing. Whitney could sing a A capella and I could listen to her all day and night. Who could forget her rendition of “I Will Always Love You?” That song will always move me to tears. Nothing that I have ever heard from Beyoncé moved me to do anything other than to turn that mess off! There is natural talent and then there is the studio produced sound and Beyoncé is nothing more than naked thighs and a studio voice and if she is performing, she is lip syncing would be my guess.
Why is it that everyone is expected to apologize for stating the truth how they see it? The “You need to apologize!” police are all over anyone who says anything they find disagreeable over their established ‘gods’ and ‘goddesses’. To hell with that! I will not be politically corrected to pieces for merely stating my mind and my opinion.
I say, “Beyoncé cannot sing!” Now make me apologize for that! The naked harridan cannot sing and why everyone is worshipping and idolizing something that married a piece of dirt that’s rapped for decades about bitches, niggaz and hos, ain’t all that! But then, Jay Z could have been rapping about her AND his daughter AND the two that’s inside Beyoncé’s belly that she just can’t keep covered.
One thing I can say for Adele, at least she has the good grace to conduct herself like a lady and even though I detest the sound of her voice and if I hear ‘Hello!” one goddamn more time, I shall surely scream, she at least garners my respect for being ladylike. Beyoncé, on the other hand, hell no!
