Beyonce's Daddy to Haters:

You're All Idiots

4/22/2009 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Beyonce Knowles Beyonce's dad is on the warpath against the people attacking his daughter for the supposed "board mix" audio of B singing at "The Today Show" -- claiming all doubters of her ability are "idiots."

In a fiery statement to TMZ, Mathew Knowles, who's also Bey's manager, says his daughter was set up. It's one of the best statements we've ever gotten.

"If no one took the time to look at the biggest Inauguration in the history of America then shame on them.

If no one took the time to listen to Beyonce sing 'America the Beautiful' and 'At Last' at the Neighborhood Ball for the first dance of President Obama and the First Lady, and they question Beyonce's vocal ability, they've gotta be an idiot.

At 12 years into her career, the last thing someone should be questioning is her vocal ability.

That would be like questioning if Kobe Bryant could shoot a jump shot. The vocals were obviously altered."

It is really, really sad to become so desperate for ratings (TMZ) that you would make someone else look bad! It only makes the person doing this look bad! You can't destroy beauty, but people know to stay away from what's ugly. (smile).

Haters - stop hating! If you could you would! I like Beyonce/Sasha. The woman's been working hard since she was very young to get where she is, and that hard work deserves the appearances she's being offered. She's still working hard to expand her repertoire and, hopefully, reach higher heights. My problem is that she's downlowing herself and other true divas with her current cut/video "Divas." I am aware that she knows what a diva is, which is NOT "A FEMALE VERSION OF A HUSTLER," and that she's now there yet. A female version of a hustler is a whore (or, to be nicer, a female hustler). It'll take more years and kudos for her to get there. You have to earn the prestigous title. A few of the true Divas are Aretha (despite the current dispute), Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle, Leontyne Price. Beyonce'/Sasha you can take this cut out of your repertoire because it's making you tell a lie by downlowing yourself and disrespecting those women who have truly earned the respect this title represents.

If you listen to them you can clearly tell they are altered... the screechy voice has different tones than she does...

Before Beyonce's father releases a statement, he should find a proofreader. "...they've gotta be an idiot."
Really?? All those people equal ONE idiot??

He has personally raised more idiots than that...I know of at least 2...

Kobe Bryant!?? Sorry, Laker fans but *that* is a bad analogy. Rapist! I knew pro athletes back in the day and they always think below their waists.

If they were clearly altered then wouldn't that be in defense of the fact that she can't sing? I mean everybody's got some talent but even the best want the easy way out

They all admitted to submitting the pre-recorded backups 2 weeks before for approval. They had to. We all went over this with the string quartet. Almost everything was pre-recorded during that whole week. Sure Beyonce can sing...but she can also sing better with three more of her piped in under the mix.
Who cares?

The biggest Inauguration in the history of America. Obama spent $176 MILLION (or should I say WE did) for his inauguration. It's great to see he cares so deeply for the people losing everything they have. $176 Million would have helped a lot of people.
Thanks
