Adele Won Because Beyonce's 'Not A Singer' Says Santana

Music legend Carlos Santana caused a minor controversy when he weighed in with his opinion on why Adele beat out Beyonce at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night.

Santana was reportedly asked about it by an Australian media outlet (via NZ Herald) and said, "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."

Once his comments made headlines, Santana took to his Facebook page to clarify. He wrote, "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." Read the Herald report here.

The Chainsmokers Accidently Reveal New Album Details

(Radio.com) Appearing on the red carpet at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, The Chainsmokers spoke with Entertainment Tonight and accidentally let it slip that their debut album, Memories: Do Not Open, would arrive on April 7th.

Drew Taggart shared the date even though he wasn't supposed to just yet, but his partner in the music duo Alex Pall gave him a pass. After all, they'd just won a GRAMMY.

Unfortunately, they were stuck in L.A. traffic during the pre-telecast where their collaboration with Daya, "Don't Let Me Down," took home Best Dance Recording. Read more here.

Britney Spears Takes High Road Over Katy Perry's Insult

(Radio.com) Katy Perry made some thinly veiled jokes about Britney Spears' 2007 mental health struggles at the Grammys, courting the ire of Britney fans and generally lowering the bar for red carpet chit-chat.

"I've done all of them and the only thing left to do is shave my head, which I'm really saving for a public breakdown," she said. "I'm down for that. I'm almost moments away from that, obviously' not to stir controversy."

On Twitter, Spears seemed to weigh in on the fracas while remaining on the high road: She shared a photo of a sunset captioned with a biblical passage: "Her mouth speaks from that which fills her heart, Luke 6:45." Read more here.

George Michael Grammy Tribute Very Different Than Originally Planned

(Radio.com) Adele's tribute to George Michael on Sunday (Feb. 12) at the Grammy Awards was a memorable one despite an early glitch that caused her to start the song over.

But the original plans for the performance were far different. At one point the tribute could have included Beyonce and Rihanna. George Michael's manager, Michael Lippman, wanted the three artists as well as host James Corden to perform a mashup of Michael's hits including 'Freedom" and 'One More Try," Grammy executive producer Ken Ehrlich told Billboard,

That decision shifted when Lippman found out "how passionate Adele was," Ehrlich says, "and that she had a vision for what she wanted to do with it." Adele would go on to perform a ballad version of Michael's 1996 hit "Fastlove" backed by an orchestra. It was a song she recalls hearing for the first time at the age of 10 and she instantly "heard the vulnerability in that song," Ehrlich says. Read more here.

Ed Sheeran Surprised By Success Of New Songs

(Radio.com) Ed Sheeran just wrapped up a whirlwind couple of days, performing on both Saturday Night Live and the Grammy Awards. But the hustle is definitely paying off. Sheeran became the first act ever to debut in the Billboard Hot 100 top 10 with two songs simultaneously.

It was a risk to release 'Shape of You" and 'Castle On The Hill" at the same time and even Sheeran is impressed at how well they're continuing to perform on the charts.

"Surprised week one? Not really," he told Carson Daly on 97.1 AMP Radio. 'But surprised now? Yes. I think when you come back with a song, the kind of initial impact is always going to be good' But now we're in our sixth or seventh week now and it's back to number one. It's growing week on week and I think that's what was the surprising thing is for me that people continue to like it." Read more here.

Willie Nelson Releases 'A Woman's Love' Video

(Radio.com) Musicians across the globe have been wishing fans a Happy Valentine's Day, and Willie Nelson isn't about to be excluded from that group. But his wish is a touch different. It comes in the form of a new video for his single, "A Woman's Love."

Shot mostly in black and white, the video fades into color in places, underscoring how a woman's love instills his life with emotion and warmth. Nelson sits in a recording studio and even though he remains in black and white, a mirror in the background reflects his image in full color. In other shots, a lamp or Christmas lights softly glow warm yellow while everything else remains drained of color.

"A woman's love goes deeper than a man's/ Into a place only she understands/ It's a healing touch, it's the blade of a knife/ But it's a woman's love, a woman's love that gives you life," Nelson sings softly on the opening verse. Watch the video here.

But all's well that ends well. Each lady turns out to have a puppet doppelganger too, so D.R.A.M.'s puppet finds love with them while D.R.A.M. finds love with the ladies. Watch it here.

Future Announces Surprise Album And Tour

(Radio.com) Future surprised his fans on Tuesday with the news that he'll release a brand new album this Friday (Feb. 17). And he announced summer tour dates as well.

The rapper revealed the album news with a link to the 17-track listing on iTunes. However, Future is keeping things cryptic; not much is known about the album and the songs that have appeared on iTunes have no titles or collaboration information.

"I was preparing the feast. U walked away from the table too soon," he writes. Future was far more specific about his 2017 Nobody Safe Tour, which will also feature Migos, Tory Lanez, and Kodak Black. Young Thug and A$AP Ferg will play select dates. See the complete summer tour dates here.

Notorious B.I.G. Documentary In The Works

(Radio.com) The mid-'90s East Coast-West Coast hip-hop battles have been the source of a number of films and documentaries. This year, there's All Eyez On Me, the forthcoming Tupac biopic. Johnny Depp is attached to Labyrinth, a movie about The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac's murder investigations.

Biggie got his own movie, Notorious, in 2009, and a new documentary is in development: Notorious B.I.G.: One More Chance will be produced by Submarine and ByStorm Films, and will stick closely to his music and its impact around the world.

Notorious B.I.G.: One More Chance was announced Monday at the Berlin Film Festival, and it's an authorized documentary so getting music rights and cooperation from Biggie's estate won't be too challenging for producers. The rapper's mother Voletta Wallace expressed her excitement about the project. Read more here.

James Corden Challenges Ice Cube To 1-On-1 Basketball

(Radio.com) On Monday's episode (Feb. 13) of The Late Late Show, host James Corden challenged Ice Cube to some one-on-one time on the court and the two remember a very different outcome.

"Now, we played before the show and I destroyed you," Corden boasted, much to Cube's confusion. The rapper's Big3 league will feature retired NBA legends including Kenyon Martin, Chauncey Billups, Allen Iverson and Jason Williams competing against each other on in half-court games.

"You are starting a pro three-on-three basketball league," Corden said. "It's gonna be amazing," Corden said. "It's such a good idea." Check out Corden's pre-interview basketball challenge with Ice Cube and pay particular attention to those camera angles here.

Justin Bieber Grammys Absence Explained

(Radio.com) Justin Bieber is back on Instagram and exploring the latest features, including live video. He was so transfixed by the app's new capabilities that he skipped the GRAMMY Awards (where he was up for Album of the Year) to chat with fans.

Some diehard Beliebers captured a funny moment in the Q&A: When asked what his favorite song is right now, Justin said "Starboy" by the Weeknd.

Of course, the Weeknd is dating Bieber's ex Selena Gomez, so he followed his answer with a burst of uncontrollable laughter. Moments later, he aborted the Instagram Live video and fans took note. Watch the clip here.
