Solange joined Twitter backlash to slam the Grammys for awarding Adele Album of the Year since they didn't think the soul diva deserved to win.
Beyonce Knowles was not happy when her sister Solange Knowles took to Twitter to shade Adele and the Grammys. Solange joined Twitter backlash after Adele was awarded with Album of the Year at the 59th Grammy Awards.
On Sunday, February 12, Solange wrote a cryptic message, "wuddup Frank," along with a link to Frank Ocean's Tumblr post in which the "Novacane" singer criticized Grammy's executives Ken Ehrlich and David Wild for showing "cultural bias and general nerve damage" through the show.
According to an insider, Queen Bey got pissed at her sister. "Beyonce thinks her sister's shade and whatever Frank Ocean was saying is rude," an insider tells HollywoodLife.com, "Especially after all the kind words that Adele said onstage. Beyonce doesn't need anyone to fight her wars - she finds it very disrespectful and feels that she would have loved to have won, but that Adele deserved it."
During her acceptance speech at the Grammys, Adele spoke directly to Beyonce, telling her how much of an inspiration she was. "I can't possibly accept this award," Adele said while crying, "And I am very humbled and I am very grateful and gracious, but my artist of my life is Beyonce. And this album for me, the 'Lemonade' album, was just so monumental. It was so monumental and so well thought out and so beautiful and soul-bearing and we all got to see another side of you that you don't always let us see and we appreciate that... You are our light."
The "Hello" hitmaker continued, "And the way that you make me and my friends feel, and the way that you make my black friends feel is empowering and you make them stand up for themselves and I love you, and I always have and I always will." At the time, Beyonce couldn't hold back her tears and said, "I love you, Adele."
