Celebrity News And Gossip: Dionne WarwickTrolled By The Beehive For Saying Beyonce Isn’t An Icon
Living legend Dionne Warwick, 78, has been roasted on Twitter by the Beehive for saying Beyonce isn’t an icon. During her recent Essence interview, Warwick chimed in with her thoughts on Beyonce, 37.
Someone wrote after seeing the interview, “Dionne Warwick is completely wrong about Beyoncé and need to stop hating lol”. Another tweeted, “Beyoncé is definitely an icon. Lmao I hope Auntie Dionne is crafting her iPhone Note apology right now”.
Even though Dionne admitted that “it’s wonderful to see how she’s been able to create what and who she wanted to be and who she is,” she wasn’t so sure about her status as an “icon.” She continued, “now, sustaining and becoming a big icon that Gladys Knight, or Patti LaBelle, or Johnny Mathis, or Frank Sinatra, or Sammy Davis Jr. is? I doubt that, I really do,” she said .“I love her to death and can appreciate her talent. But that iconic status that I just mentioned, those four names? [She has] a long road [ahead].”
However, this wounded the Beehive who are known to get confrontational when it comes to protecting Beyonce.
After facing severe backlash, Dionne now insists her words about the songstress were misunderstood. “What I said is in quotes. What @Essence said is not. It takes a long time to reach and achieve iconic status. That’s not to say that Beyoncé isn’t well on her way. She is a gifted performer. That was a reach from Essence,” she wrote in a now deleted tweet, according to Bossip.
