Ignorance, or pure ignorance? After Kelly Clarkson let the world know she had no idea who Miguel was but truly enjoyed his performance, Twitter went crazy with all the ways she was being a big ol’ beyotch with her comment! After all, his song “Adorn” is one of the most played songs of the year and he’s on the same label as her.
Via CBS reports:
While accepting the award on Sunday night for Best Pop Vocal Album for “Stronger,” Clarkson said, “Miguel, I don’t know who the hell you are, but we need to sing together. I mean, good God. That was the sexiest damn thing I’ve ever seen.”
Shortly afterward her Grammy acceptance speech, Clarkson met Miguel for the first time backstage and posted their photo, along with the tweet “Miguel!”:
Clarkson’s acceptance speech caught the attention of fellow music artists, including Pink, who tweeted: “Congrats to Kelly Clarkson for the award and that love able speech. You made me laugh. Can’t wait to hear that song with Miguel. Xo”
Miguel released his sophomore album, “Kaleidoscope Dream,” in September 2012 and not only did it debut at No. 3, but it also secured a spot in New York magazine’s Top 10 album list of 2012, and Spin put it at No. 5 of its 50 best albums of the year. Idolator named it the best set of 2012.
His track, “Adorn,” scored the best R&B song at this year’s Grammys.
We gotta ask — unintentionally or not — did Kelly Clarkson shade Miguel? Does she need to have a seat?
