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."

DADDY IS IS DENIAL! HIS BIG (ASS/THIGH) BABY BEYONCE COULD NEVER SING! ASK ETTA JAMES! HER VOICE HAS CRACKED AND IF IT WERE NOT FOR BIMBOS BUYING HER MUSIC SHE WOULD BE SELLING SHOES AT JC PENNY. I'VE NEVER BOUGHT ONE THING WITH HER LIKENESS OR IMAGE ATTACHED. DADDY KNOWS THAT UNLIKE ALICIA KEYS, SOMEONE WITH AUTHENTIC TALENT, BEYON(D)CE MUST GET NAKED BEFORE SHE HITS THE STAGE. TELL THE TRUTH, BEYON(D)CE BEGGED THE OBAMAS TO BE ANY PART OF HIS INAUGURATION, AND SHE SCREWED THAT UP TO! BEHIND(CE) COULD NEVER SING! I have no more time to spend on UNEDUCATED imbecils like DADDY DENIAL! SAYONARA!

Keys Beats, if you really were a producer, you would also know the ability a voice does, and does not have. Do you not agree that if she was unable to hear herself, and she was straining her vocals, that it could come out sounding like that? If you can sit here and say that never happens, then you're a fraud, or at least, you have never sang in front of a crowd live. Anybody with a computer and a sample program can claim to be a "producer" and make cuts in their basement to put on youtube and myspace.......................... but where talent really shines is in front of the people. When you're recording you can re-record, edit, doctor, and sample tracks a million times over to get it to sound good. You're not singing in front of anyone else but yourself, the engineer, and the producer. One song can take a whole day, maybe two, maybe three, depending on how much you have to do to the track, or how many takes you must do in order to get it right. When you're on stage, you only have those 5 minutes you're up there to make an impression, and do things right.

No. 18. You are the one who is gullible. Anyone who thinks that that isn't Beyonce singing are the gullible ones. You can hear the engineered tracks, that are in tune, and then you hear Beyonce singing to the track. Bitch can't sing, never could. All she can do is shake her big, rump ass, and lyp-sinc. Everyone knows it. Now its confirmed. BITCH CAN'T SING!!!! haahahahahahahah

I feel you. There are a lot of frauds out there. I'm flying out to HollyWood this week to record Rich Girl. They have the single out "24's" with Bun B. Check them out at myrichgirl.com or myspace.com/richgirlmusic and I have done cuts with Mario and Ciara. Anyway, Yes notes can come out like that if you push and can't hear yourself, but if you listen closely enough, you can hear the glitch or sudden change in pitch in parts of the audio. I don't care what anyone thinks about me being a music producer,engineer, song writer or anything but I do know altered audio when I hear it. Matthew Knowles is essentric but he is right this time. Except for calling everyone idiots.

I loved how Jennifer Hudson blew her away vocally in Dreamgirls and
am surprised Beyonce would agree to do that movie not realizing it
was a spoof of performers just like her!

Rolling Stone knew the truth that's why Christina Aguilera was the only young artist to appear on the best voices list.Beyonce shouldn't worry Britney Spears is selling out her concert and never singing not one note why do they bother having a sound check just for her to say I love you L.A.! Britney couldn't sing live if she wanted to they mess with her voice so much she sounds like a Robotic Chipmunk.
