This has been the summer of foot-in-mouth quotes. Beyonce Knowles is the newest member to join the team with KeKe Wyatt and Polow Da Don. In an interview with Latina Magazine, Beyonce says, “I’m just jealous that I wasn’t born Latina. I wish I had been because the culture is so beautiful.”
Beyonce continues with, “I noticed a big difference between speaking to all of the Latino stations and speaking to the pop stations or the other stations. With the Latino stations, there was so much love and everyone is so genuine.“
MG Says: Now, I know what she was trying to do, she was trying to patronize her Latino base to increase her international exposure. However, in the process she gave a back-handed compliment and inferred that her culture is not beautiful, and her fans that are not Latino are fake. I smell PR Patrol, I’m sure she will be in every media outlet trying to fix this one.
