Dionne Warwick Doubts Beyonce's Iconic Status

The legendary singer thinks Beyonce has a long way to go before she's an icon.

(AllHipHop News) Dionne Warwick is feeling the wrath of the Beyhive after declaring Beyonce has not achieved the status of icon yet.

Dionne admitted Beyonce tops the pile of talent but she has some way to go before she can truly be considered an icon.

The 78-year-old said: "Watching her grow has been quite refreshing. It's wonderful to see how she's been able to create what and who she wanted to be and who she is...

"I'm very proud of that, I really am. 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 love her to death and can appreciate her talent, but that iconic status? It's a long road."

Check out some of the replies as the war between Dionne's fans and the Beyhive escalates:

All Behives are young, slow, cannot read:write nor spell. Move on Dionne! They do not know what Iconic mean!

Ignorance, Dionne is a real icon. Songs played straight through for 50 yrs straight, nonstop! Burt Bacharach and Q for God’s sake, plus her niece Whitney was an icon. Pop tarts can’t be icons

When you have been around almost 80 years you have seen a lot of stars come and go. Question to you youngsters: How many stars can you name from 50 years ago in any form of the entertainment industry? How many from 100 years ago; how many historical writers, poets, artists, etc. can you name? Now the question I ask is how many people will know Beyonce in 50 years, 100 years; how many will know Jay in that time period?

They will know the Beatles, Mike Jackson, Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Eartha Kitt, Lena Horne, Aretha, etc...

Now do you better understand what Ms. Dionne was saying? You don't become an Icon in 10, 15, 20 years, you have to pass the test of time...

Dionne Warwick can say whatever TF Dionne Warwick wants. STFU and salute her. If you don't agree, just keep your mouth shut.

I'm no Beyonce fan per se, but what else does she need to do to reach icon status? The woman is a consistent global fucking phenomenon....that's pretty damn iconic.
