Dionne Warwick released her 39th studio album “She’s Back” last week and shared her thoughts about the global superstar during a recent interview with Essence.

The songstress doesn’t believe that the groundbreaking Queen Bey has reached “icon” status just yet. Click Here if you missed that.

Warwick took to social media on Thursday to clarify what she said in the earlier video interview with the longstanding black women-focused media brand.

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. pic.twitter.com/nWlZcrgdqg— Dionne Warwick (@_DionneWarwick) May 23, 2019

“What I said is in quotes,” she wrote on the social media app. “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.”

Dionne Warwick has amassed close to six decades in the game so it didn’t stop her from going on Twitter to give Essence Magazine a spanking. The Black media institution took a snippet of Dionne’s recent interview out of context as a Beyoncé diss, and the hive went crazy. Dionne had nothing short of positive things to say about Bey, but reading beyond a headline would’ve revealed Warwick’s sentiments altogether. It’s sad to think the public would label Dionne as senile for her views. As someone who bridged the gap between Pop and Soul music, Dionne is entitled to her opinion. As someone who measures their musical standard to jazz and vocals alone, the choreography, the costumes, and the tour production doesn’t matter. Is Beyoncé capable of standing on stage and just singing? Is she able to conduct her own live Orchestra? Would she command the same attention and applause if she did those things? I doubt it. There’s some truth to what Dionne is communicating, and the Original Queen of Pop has the experience and resume to validate her thoughts and feeling. I hope Dionne’s getting that royalty check for DJ Khaled, Jay Z, and Beyoncé’s use of “Walk the Way You Talk” (1970) for “Shining” (2017). If you ask me, Dionne deserved a feature credit for the sample’s use of her distinctive vocal. #avintagesoul #kngsctt #phillysoulchild #applemusic #beyonce #dionnewarwick #jayz #djkhaled #shining #sample #essencemagazine #shesback #queenofpop #originalqueenofpop #jazz #whitneyhouston #icon #legend #beehive #thebeehive #queenbey #kingbey #essence #newmusic #verydionne #1970 #2017 #2019

Who Said That? Dionne Warwick Says Beyonce Is Not an Icon Just Yet/ BeyHive Attacks

Beychella Beyonce Homecoming GIF

It all went down when Dionne Warwick pulls up to Essence for an interview to promote her new album ‘She’s Back’ .

Things sort of went left….

The songstress keep it 100 on how she really felt about today’s music.

When asked if today’s music also has classics, Warwick laughed and said, firmly, “Not yet.”

“I don’t know if 10 years from now, anybody can actually sing the songs of our babies today. That’s not, as you guys say, ‘throwing shade,’ it’s looking at it with reality,” she explained.

And while Warwick is a fan of Beyoncé . she’s not convinced that Bey’s a classic or iconic artist.

“I love her to death and can appreciate her talent. But that iconic status, it’s a long road [ahead],” Warwick said.

‘Donkey Of The Day’ Taylor Swift Accused Of Ripping Off Beyoncé’s Act At Billboard Music Awards

taylor swift 2019 bbmas GIF by Billboard Music Awards

Last night #Mayochella trended on social media for hours after Taylor Swift opened the Billboard Music Awards .

Some felt it was a blatant ripoff of the Bey’s smash hit Netflix concert film, in which she transformed the Coachella stage into a “Homecoming” celebration in the HBCU (historically black college and university) tradition — complete with uniformed marching drummers in the spirit of Morehouse, Spelman and Howard universities.

“I always dreamed of going to an HBCU,” Beyoncé, says in the film. “My college was Destiny’s Child. My college was traveling around the world, and life was my teacher.”

Peep what Charlamagne has to say below:
