Adele showed up at tonight's Grammy Awards in an elaborately-embellished, olive-hued custom Givenchy gown featuring intricate monochromatic beaded detailing throughout.
"With all respect to our sister Beyoncé, Beyoncé is very lovely 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. "'Sorry, that's not working for me.' If we have time to do it again, let's do it", she said on the Ellen show soon after. In Santana's opinion, however, Bey uses theatrics to mask her voice. Speaking to Jamie Theakston on Heart Radio in July 2012, Michael explained that he had met Adele thanks to an introduction from Elton John at the Rocket Man singer's house.
"I found him to be one of the truest icons, because famous people often create this massive bravado to protect themselves, but for him it wasn't based on a look or an assumption", she said.
She started by saying "I don't do interviews".
At the Grammy Awards 2017, there will also be a tribute to Prince and George Michael, but organizers did not reveal who will be in charge of the homage.
She becomes only the second woman to win the album of the year award twice after Taylor Swift achieved the feat last year.
"But I can't possibly accept this award, and I'm very humbled and very grateful and gracious but my life is Beyonce, and the album to me, the "Lemonade" album, Beyonce, was so monumental, and so well thought out".
"Lemonade made a lot of people uncomfortable because it is so political, so spiritual, so unapologetically black, and so brutally honest about love, self-love, trust, betrayal", said Powell, calling it "too black" to win the top award.
Adele tells reporters: "What the f**k does she need to do to win Album of the Year?'". "But I have been working very hard on this tribute for him, every day".
"You look nothing like your mother, everything like your mother, you desperately want to look like her, how to wear your mother's lipstick, you must wear it like she wears disappointment on her face", a recording intoned, as Bey posed in an etherial crown of gold. I struggled and I still do struggle being a mom.
"But tonight, winning this kind of feels full circle and a bit of me has come back to myself".
We hear you, girl.
"I don't love my dad, that's the thing. but I love you like I would love my dad".
