Carlos Santana has issued an apology after the Beyhive gathered him like a raggedy ponytail for saying Beyoncé isn’t a “singer, singer.” The New Zealand Herald reports, during a recent interview, the 69-year-old musician weighed in on Adele‘s Grammy win over Beyoncé for Album of the Year.

I think that Adele won because she can sing, sing.

With all respect to our sister Beyonce, Beyonce is very beautiful to look at and it’s more like modelling kind of music – music to model a dress – she’s not a singer, singer, with all respect to her.

HOW SWAY?! If Bey isn’t a singer, singer…who is?!? Carlos quickly hopped on his Facebook page and offered an apology to get those Beyhive goons off of his guitar strings!

I would like to clarify a comment that was reported when I was doing an interview for some upcoming shows in Australia & New Zealand. My intent was to congratulate Adele on her amazing night at the Grammies. 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.
