He calls Kelly's remarks 'backhanded' and is an indication that urban music is 'belittled' in the music community

Wale is taking issue with Kelly Clarkson's comment about Miguel at Sunday night's Grammy Awards. Clarkson made the remarks during her acceptance speech when she won the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album.
She said, "Miguel, I don't know who the hell you are, but we need to sing together. I mean, good God. That was the sexiest damn thing I've ever seen."
Wale tells MTV News he didn't like Clarkson's "back-handed comments to Miguel." Apparently, he believes the remark was an indication that urban music is "belittled" by the music community.
Wale also feels like Miguel and Wiz Khalifa's performance wasn't "presented as a real performance." Instead, he says that it was merely a segue between two awards. Because of that, Wale says the performance "wasn't a very good representation" of hip-hop and R&B music.
Wale was up for one Grammy Sunday night for Best Rap Song for his track "Lotus Flower Bomb" featuring Miguel. However, the pair lost out to Kanye West and Jay-Z's "N***** In Paris."
