*UPDATED* Is That You Beyonce?
So Beyonce's voice has been exposed---and it ain't pretty. While we've heard Beyonce's live singing voice before and it sounded great, this is a bit of a shocker. Apparently "The Today Show" keeps the audio of celebs when they're singing over a track. Usually celebs sing over tracks when singing "live" and listeners only hear the track. However, celebs actually do sing into a mic for authenticity--and "The Today Show" has leaked the audio we don't hear when celebs actually sing into the mic. Someone leaked Enrique Iglesias' and other celebs. And now here's Beyonce's from last year. Check out the audio here. It is true that celebs can't really hear anything while they're on the outside stage so things usually do sound off. But um, wow. Papa Knowles declaring war on "The Today Show" in 5...4...3...2... UPDATE: Papa Knowles sent this snappy statement to 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." UPDATE 2: Yes, the entire screeching tape was a hoax. Case solved.
