The Humpday Tea 02/15/17

Who's coming for Bey, ratchet turn up news and more.

Vibe dropped dime that Beyonce and Rihanna were initially enlisted to perform the Grammys George Michael tribute alongside Adele but obviously, that didn’t happen.

 

But how about Christian community is bashing Beyoncé over her Grammys performance? According to The Shade Room, they accuse her of "likening herself to God" after wearing an ensemble that incorporated the deity, Oshun -- which is known as the goddess of the river, water, luxury, pleasure, sexuality and fertility, beauty and love that reflects the Ifá and Yoruba religions. Others are upset that Bey is being slammed for paying homage to the African goddess.

  

That ain’t all.

 

Carlos Santana has said that Adele earned her Grammy win over Beyoncé, telling the Australian Associated Press, "I think that Adele won because she can sing, sing. 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…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."

 

 Well, when the Beyhive began to buzz and sting, he backpedaled on Facebook Tuesday:

 

"My intent was to congratulate Adele on her amazing night at the Grammies. [sic] My comment about Beyonce was regretfully taken out of context," the guitarist and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer wrote. "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."
