Beyonce's Dad Was Right

Hoax, Hoax, Hoax!!!

has officially been cleared of all bad singing charges -- the atrocious supposed "board mix" of her performance on "The Today Show" last year was altered after all.

Just as Mathew Knowles told us, the audio clip that many people believed was leaked from "Today" was indeed a fake.

In fact, TMZ found the person behind the prank who was surprised it went as far as it did, saying, "It's a little bit crazy. No one in their right mind would sound like that, and no one would cheer for someone singing like that."

Apparently, the dude never went to an Ashlee Simpson concert...

BUT I GUESS YOUR TASTE IS JUST YOUR TASTE. SOMEBODY PLEASE JUST GIVE ME THEIR TOP 5 FEMALE VOCALISTS SO I CAN SEE WHAT EVERYONE ELSE THINKS.

Her voice is incredible, but the last songs kind of suck for an actress her style.

Spin....Spin...Spin. Who paid you to print this garbage TMZ? Threaten you with a lawsuit? The bitch can't sing, and it was proven. They even interviewed people at the SHOW who heard her sucking. Try to 'dig' a little deeper TMZ.

Was her manager's illogical memo a hoax? Or is he as uneducated as we all believe.

This is B. Matthew threaten to sue and TMZ is changing the story.

I see the Knowles are in full PR damage control but a little to late.

Matthew should have stayed out of it from the beginning

Jamie Foxx keeps saying he was going to meet with her manager...what on earth for? She cant sing and he's now been found out to be a complete Hater and Moron with his comments about a kid his own daughters age. What a vile human he has turned out to be...but what on earth would he be wanting to meet with this screechy owl singers manager for?

Etta James, knock this punk girl screech Owl out once and for all and give one to that Joe Jackson of a daddy of hers too.

"At Last"? What a disgrace. Like Foxx, Beyonce has now been exposed too. Who's next please? Step right up phoney's.

The Louder they Holler about their Love for everyone else, the more we found out they're nothing but big phony baloneys....one who lies about a Stalker, the other about her ability to sing. That wasnt faked...what is being faked now is the Cover UP.

Typical Obama Lovers---Covering up when they're caught. Foxx with his lies about a date gone bad, Beyonce about getting caught in "true form" voice. Liars.

Thank God that the bunch of Asses that have been saying all the trash about Beyonce are found to be dead wrong. They are so asheme of themselves that they cannot admit it. Hoe sally and stupid people can be all the time. Please shut up and F-- YOURSELVES IMMEDIATELY ALONG WITH MR. WHITEMAN WITH SHAPELESS AFRO. His so-called radio talk show cannot bring this DEVA down. She is a fine example for those of us who have girl children. SHEME ON YOU GUYS!!!!

I don't think anyone in their right mind could believe for one second that that tape was for real. I mean, seariously? Are there really people out there who listened to that and honestly would say they couldn't hear the messing around someone did with it? God bless you, if you did, becuase you'd be one clueless fool who deserves to be thought of as a great big dumbass. I mean, really...

God people are so ridiculous. Maybe you dont like her but how can you actually say she sucks?
She has a lot of vocal talent, and she actually does write a large amount of her songs.
People talk bad about her for the songs she didnt write when really she writes more of her own stuff than the majority of stars these days.
