Beyonce's Dad Was Right

Hoax, Hoax, Hoax!!!

0422_beyonce_ex_c-1Beyonce
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...

I think theres more to the story.Howard stern said she was singing along with the monitor so she didnt know how she sounded and the audience heard lip syncing so they wouldnt have never knew she sounded bad.contridicts how the father said the audence wouldnt have listened to that they wouldnt have had she not been lip syncing. I SAY THE TAPE I REAL

I am shocked at all the negative comments abt this artist. i am not a big fan, but i cant deny she can sing....dance ...nice body and fashion (the ones she buys , not the ones her mother pretends to make...and i just so happened to see her taped lie performance it was a show.....Even though i do not buy her stuff....i have to acknowledge her talent...still so shocking the negative spins

well if she has nothing to hide then she should perform again live to prove she could sing,instead of just calling people that question her abilities idiots or crazy.this tactic has been used by the u.s. gov. for years and its getting old. the proof is in the pudding.

Come on people what is wrong with you. This woman has talent that is undeniable. Why do people keep saying so many hateful things against her. She is classy, respectful and talented. Why especially women are so hateful towards beautiful women? Is it the fact that you can't find anything on her that is negative so you want to do everything in your ability to bring her down. Well, let me just tell you this its not going to work. As long as she has her family she is going to keep going. Like my parents told me the more people talk about you the more positive things you keep doing. People are so jealous that it is scary.

People find something that is worth talking about.

Well I'm glad to see that there are a lot of people on here that have a sense of what real music is. Beyonce's music is typical commercial garbage, the kind that the music industry love to shove down our throats. The best musicians out there are often ones that few people take the time and effort to discover, but get they nicely rewarded for their efforts with good music. Just because Beyonce is on Oprah and in movies doesn't mean she's a good musician, it means she's more into self-promotion than art.

It was so obvious that it was tampered with, you had to be a fricking fruitcase not to be able to tell the difference. Anyone that thought that was real is a complete loser. If TMZ told you the sky was falling, you'd likely stick your ugly heads up your arses too and try to hide. The girl can sing, like her or not, glad the guy who did it came forth to explain the JOKE to the SIMPLETONS. I bet you guys are kicking yer arses now for looking so stupid.
Funny stuff. Way to report and stimulate the knobs TMZ.

And how much did Daddy Knowles pay TMZ for this story?? "We 'talked to' the guy responsible". Yeah right. So what's his name?? And why isn't Knowles suing somebody, or talking about seeking legal recourse? Umm...cause that's Beyonce's ass soundin like a damn cat in heat! Who did TMZ talk to, Daddy Knowles in a fake voice?

I've heard this happen to singers during live shows. They can't hear themselves. There's a term called "bad ear". She has a "bad ear". It's not her fault. People who think this is IMPOSSIBLE and it can't be true obviously can't think that hard. Howard Stern talked about the same thing happening to Julio Igelsias...or did you not hear that part? Even Whitney lip synced the national anthem during the super bowl. This is why. Ashlee Simpson is a good example of what happens when you sing live at an event like that.
This was definitely Beyonce. The irony of her dad's "defense" is that even though she doesn't sound good she's still hitting some notes really strong. This ain't no hoax.

So where are all the stupid asses that insisted it was fake and she couldnt sing? Even after she went live on Letterman and delivered an incredicle performance, there were knuckle dragging doubters. Typical ass TMZ posters. Dont know a good singer if one kicked your white asses!
