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:

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.
