Bey’s CMA scandal
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.
