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."

who cares    

I think at some points it was her, but all the screeching cant really be her, i mean through the song you can her singing it in the correct tone, but either way if she's still a great singer. I wonder what other singers who cant sing as well as she can, would sound like if this happened to them.

She can sing... but she doesn't really sing live. The Oscars for example... she was the only one not singing live.

Thank You Mr. Knowles for proving your incompetence as an effective manager. Beyonce is a wonderful mid-level talent, but you are nothing more than a sperm donor.

Mr. Knowles, if we want to hear what a REAL talented & natural voice sounds like, your daughter is NOT it. Ever hear R&B singer, Tamia, sing live on a radio show? THAT is what a voice should sound like. But because your daughter is such a media-whore (minus the media), she is the one who makes the radio, tv and movies instead of those singers who are WAY MORE talented and more deserving than your daughter.

You just go ahead believing what you want. There will always be those folks who will buy into it and continue to make your cash-cow (minus the cash) daughter a star. But those of us who know what real talent is will always know the truth.

p.s. In your statement, did you ever say the audio was NOT your daughter singing? Hmmmm...
