Bey’s CMA scan­dal

Jamaica Gleaner - - FLAIR MAGAZINE -

While it was easy for Coun­try Singer Tay­lor Swift to cross over into the won­der­ful world of pop, the same could not be said for the Queen of Pop Bey­oncé, who per­formed her song Daddy Lessons with the Dixie Chicks at the 50th Coun­try Mu­sic Awards. Her per­for­mance came as a sur­prise to the Bey Hive, and was the high­light of the night, but the photo posted of the ‘joined duo’ on CMA’s so­cial me­dia site sparked con­tro­versy, spurring racial un­der­tones and over­tones to­wards the multi-award win­ning

Melanin singer. To add in­sult to in­jury, it is al­leged that this was the rea­son for pulling the pic­ture al­to­gether from their site. The CMA camp de­nied the claim, but for many, the dam­age was al­ready done.
