Beyonce: 'Today Show' Board Feed Scandal

Beyonce: 'Today Show' Board Feed Scandal

A raw “board mix” reportedly of Beyonce Knowles singing during her Today Show performance last year was broadcasted on Howard Stern‘s Sirius radio show yesterday. Listen to it below!

In response to the audio clip, Beyonce‘s dad and manager, Mathew Knowles, released a statement.

He told TMZ, “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.”

A similar feed with Enrique Iglesias came out awhile back. He went on Stern‘s show to prove he could actually sing. Beyonce should too!

UPDATE 1: Beyonce hasn’t heard the recording but addressed the issue, saying, “[The story] sounds completely ridiculous. Everyone’s heard me sing and it’s perfect timing, actually, because I’ll be on the Today Show tomorrow singing ‘Halo,’ or tonight you can watch me sing live on David Letterman! It’s perfect promotion, whoever came up with that idea.”

UPDATE 2: It was indeed a hoax. The person who created the prank said, “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.”

Seriously doubt if Howard Stern and Beyonce share the same audience base, Hopefully, there is more substance to her fans than naked women and **** jokes.

# 2

Oh come on, seriously?How stupid is this?!!!! I am faar from being her fan or liking her music, but that clip is RIDICILOUS, you really would have to be an idiot not to see that was messed with, besides like her dad said the woman does have a beautiful voice, shame its wasted on stupid songs like that!

# 3

she doesn’t need to prove a damn thing. she should just ignore this garbage. the statement is enough.

# 4

lol wtf do they actually think people would fall for that?? Howard Stern is a complete and utter dickwad.

# 5

Oh my God, seriously?! I’m from Houston and have been a huge fan of Beyonce since her Destiny’s Child days, and have heard her sing live countless times, with and without so much as a microphone. She has an incredible, strong voice. The true issue here is the fact that “shock jock” Howard Stern is held accountable for nothing, and it has to stop- it is beyond reproach to play something that so clearly lacks any shred of auhenticity, to millions of listeners, without any concern for the reputation or well being of the person being targeted.

BEYONCE – YOU ARE THE REAL DEAL. ANYONE WITH EVEN ONE BRAIN CELL CAN TELL THIS TRACK HAS BEEN MESSED WITH. I’VE SEEN YOU SING LIVE DURING INTERVIEWS AND STUFF, AND YOUR VOICE IS GORGEOUS. THERE IS TOO MUCH HATE AND JEALOUSY IN THE WORLD.

I’m not a Beyonce fan but Howard Stern is ridiculous. This is nothing more than a sad attempt at publicity for his show.

# 9

WTF someone made this on youtube months ago and now people think it’s real?

Lol, old news. The video with this performance was posted ages ago, obviously altered.

howard’s a doodoo shitfaced ass. haHaha.. `even beyonce’s biggest haters have heard her sing live millions of times and know this is bullpoop.

THIS IS SOOO FUNNY I WAS SCREAMING LAUGHING!!! I’ve always thought Beyonce was overrated. I can tell this is NOT doctored, she is singing into a sound board, she doesn’t care what it sounds like because the audience doesn’t hear it. FUNNY!!! THANKS JARED!

Probably true. Enrique Inglesias copped to it, but he came in and sounded pretty good. It doesn’t mean they can’t sing, it’s just that they are out of tune for whatever reason.

No he didn't @ 04/22/2009 at 3:29 pm

Ohh…Howard is about to get his ass kicked! Jay-Z will kill this man for messing with B! They obviously don’t know who they are messing with! beyonce has a gorgeous voice and has sung live without music many times. They are ******** for altering her vocals like that. Watch your back HS!

Seriously Matthew, there’s no need to be all cocky about it.

I don’t like her music, not a fan, so I don’t care about her.

Seriously, ENRIQUE is the worst……got no real voice like his daddy eve though his music is pretty cool.
Well BEYONCE isnt that bad actually………we all know she can sing .
Love HOward but damn he is so mean.haha

I’m with Papa Knowles on this one. Cut me a break. How could anyone doubt Beyonce’s talent or question her authenticity? That’s just ridiculous.

bey rocks @ 04/22/2009 at 3:52 pm
