Wale has never held any punches when it comes to how he feels — especially when it comes to music. He recently added his two sense regarding comments singer Kelly Clarkson made about Miguel at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards.

“I didn’t like the Kelly Clarkson back-handed comments to Miguel,” the Maybach Music Group rapper told MTV News.  “I didn’t like that at all. I just feel like our urban music is belittled, a little bit,”

During the former ‘American Idol’ winner’s acceptance speech for her Best Pop Vocal Album win for ‘Stronger,’ she yelled, “Miguel, I don’t know who the hell you are! But we need to sing together.”

The two happen to be on the same record label so that shouldn’t be an issue.

The D.C. native continued his thoughts with MTV, stating he believes ‘Adorn’ should have received more recognition at the award show. “Not trying to offend nobody on the committee, but for a record as big as ‘Adorn,’ and it to not be presented as a real performance onstage; it was almost like a segue to an award,” Wale stated. “Again, I don’t want to offend anybody on the committee, but that wasn’t a very good representation of our music because ‘Adorn’ is gonna be around for the next 30 years.”

Miguel and Wale shared a Best Rap Song Grammy nomination for ‘Lotus Flower Bomb’ this year. The award however went to Jay-Z and Kanye West for ‘N—-s in Paris.’
