“Miguel, I don’t know who the hell you are, but we need to sing together,” Kelly said while accepting her Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album. “I mean, good God. That was the sexiest damn thing I’ve ever seen.”
By the way, her acceptance speech was right after Miguel performed “Adorn.”
Anyway, Wale didn’t see it as a compliment.
“I didn’t like the Kelly Clarkson back-handed comments to Miguel. I didn’t like that at all. I just feel like our urban music is belittled, a little bit.”
Kelly hasn’t clarified if she was being an a** with her commentary or not, but regardless, Wale was on fire.
“Not trying to offend nobody on the committee, but for a record as big as ‘Adorn,’ and it to not be presented as a real performance onstage; it was almost like a segue to an award,” Wale later told MTV. “Again, I don’t want to offend anybody on the committee, but that wasn’t a very good representation of our music because ‘Adorn’ is gonna be around for the next 30 years.”
