Celebrity Gossip Never Looked So Good™

*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.

at the end of the day no

at the end of the day no matter what anyone believes, only the people in the studio knows how her voice really sounds, so fan or not noone knows, but it is a known fact that alot of albums are altered to make the voice sound better than what it really does, but seriously who really cares. People should really get a life on this site 4 real.

At this time, I would like to apologize on behalf of Beyonce to you & your fave artist. She left you no hope. You don't believe it. Some things just can't be done huh? Superwoman is she? LOL ah well I suppose she is. She doesn't mean to shut 'em all down. It just happens. Her bad for doing what they can't. :-)

Skymama: Lol, all the

Skymama: Lol, all the Beyonce stans are super pissy! I’m not a stan but I do believe that Bey can sing, really well. But obviously she has to lip sync just like any other artist who cares about the entertainment factor in their live performances. No matter what exercises she does, she can’t do all those dances, in heels, and sing on key, without getting short of breath, and without being able to hear herself. That’s why her performances are so good. The HORRIBLE sounding performers are the ones who refuse to lip sync, i.e. keyshia cole, kelly rowland. I think those girls can sing just as good as Bey but try to do the impossible on stage. The only person that it can’t help is (sad to say) CIARA! Can’t nothing help that poor child. She just can’t damn sing either way you slice it! i agree with you because i was looking at the performance she did at the BET awards in 2007 and it looked like she she was lip syncing because with all that dancing and singing that strong is crazy now i dont have a problem with an artist lip syncing as log as that artist give a great performance but with all that dancing and you sing that good than she should be called superwomen lol because you have to give out of breath during that now dont get me wrong i am a fan of beyonce and artists do lip synce from time to time and when i heard that audio from the today show i knew it was a fake people just needed a good laugh and get over it beyonce know she can sing live and that shouldnt bother her

Aliboo: Not a Bey Stan,

Aliboo: Not a Bey Stan, with that said that audio was funny as hell. However, after listening to it, it does sound altered. And yes she does lip sync when she performs, EVERY one does….. but she can sing tho….that’s why i kno it was altered. I saw this on that other horrible blog the other day and laughed cuz I knew it was fake, but dang it must have been a very slow news day for Tasha to post this. Have you ever saw Beyonce live in Concert?? NO she does not lip sync. Come one people get real you know this is fake... and she sung live on the Today show...so I'm lost as to how they can even consider this to be real... Wow it sounds like they are spinning a album backwards

That is not Beyonce. First

That is not Beyonce. First off you can play with the vocals of a singer!! Second they making it seem like she is very tone deaf!! She jumps from one key to another key. Lastly Beyonce has been in the business to long for us to start to question her vocals!! They have messed with her vocals to make her sound like crap!!

if u check Youtube for the

if u check Youtube for the Today Show performance of If I Were a Boy and play it alongside the Howard Stern audio it pretty much matches up...crowd reaction and everything. She was sick that day cuz I remember watching the performance and she had a runny nose. Nevertheless she's still hot and a trendsetter. She'll get thru this....I hope.

T: Read this on concreteloop and its so real so i had to copy paste. “We all know Beyonce lipsyncs live.No one! Can perform running across the stage and you not hear them take a breath or two.But that stupidity on the fans part.However you can tell the sound was messed with.I think she’s a very pretty girl, however she not the best singer or the worst.She’s just average.She over sings TOO much and she has to be extra sexy for no reason at all.She can not act and its disrespectfull to people,who’s craft is acting.Because she don’t even take it serious enough to get a voice coach! The only thing she has going for her right now is Jay.And if she don’t sit down and give him some kids soon, he’ll either get em from someone else or all of her secrest career wise will be exposed. Slowing things are starting to come out.Its sad because all that she had to say about the Jackson and she never really realized that Daddy Knowles has been pimping the Shits out of her. As well as her mother making her those cheap ass clothes.She needs to take hints from her sister.Fashion wise !NO TINA KNOWLES UNIFORMs!Things are not working for her because people are so over it.Her concert tix aren’t saling like expected,No one wants to see Obessed besides idiots and she has yet to date show any sense of education.She needs to go back to high school and get her diploma.Retake english and esp Speach!Its really sad to me that she didn’t even attempt to at least have a high diploma. Even Mary and Fantasia went back.UGhB is the tpical pretty, dumb, rich girl!!So very sad..Nice to see she loves her mom!!” SPELL CHECK IS A VERY NICE TOOL, WITH ALL THE MISPELLED WORDS IN THAT ONE PASSAGE, YOU SHOULD BE THE LAST TO UTTER THE WORDS,EDUCATION!IF SHE'S DUMB, YOU NEED TO BE IN LINE IN FRONT OF HER.

Thanks: Industry insiders

Thanks: Industry insiders know this is the real Beyonce but no one will ever go at her because of Matthew.The truth is about to start coming out, watch….stuff you will never believe.Just because you thought you saw her sing live doesnt make it true!Beyonce performs to a track, with an on microphone so she can come in here and there to appear like she is singing live.You guys dont even want to know half the stuff that goes on in the industry, it would hurt your feelings.Beyonce is not a true artist, she doesnt write, she cant sing that great, she doesnt read music and so on….>Smoke and Mirrors. Thats why Amerie went after Beyonce, because she knows the truth and what made it worse is Beyonce took Amerie’s go go sound…..Also Keri Hilson knows the truth too I love Amerie. What did Amerie say about Beyonce?

Thanks: He should take it

Thanks: He should take it personally as a father but not as a Manager, thats his problem the line is never drawn.If he is her manager then he is to send her publicist to the media to diminish any rumors, not personally go after them himself because now it looks like she cant stick up for herself because her daddy speaks for her. It cant be gray, or warm but only black or white, hot or cold…..he straddle the fence.This is why Janet fired her daddy, because he was to controlling and making her look bad, Beyonce might want to take a page from Janet’s book He is her Father first and foremost, and should be applauded for that. Joe Jackson let money and greed rule his judgemet and that's why they turned out the way they did. Amazingly talented but emotional wrecks.

This is foolish and idiotic

This is foolish and idiotic for ybf to post. Any genius would know this was on youtube, as someone altering her vocals on this song and today show. It just goes to show how amazing Beyonce is as a singer that someone would have to go through the trouble to digitally alter her voice. Also Beyonce is going on the Today Show tomorrow. If today show leaked something, I DOUBT she would still be coming on the show. People on this site are truly dumb if they believe Beyonce sounds like this, it doesn't even sound like her voice strained tired nothing. That pitchiness and skipping lines clearly shows someone messed with it. Matthew is right in releasing a statement. I would too if the artist I managed, and my daughter, was being LIED ON, when her singing voice is her entire career. Beyonce is a singer, a live singer, and releasing slanderous things and a LIE about her voice is DEAD WRONG. That is her business, and if any false truths were put out about that, you would release a statement in case idiots believe this as true. Howard Stern and his team could actually be sued for posting this as truth, when indeed it was tampered with. It's highly unprofessional and lacks integrity. YBF you have definitely lost a lot of points with posting this.

since when do they release

since when do they release staements for damage control? Maybe when she talked about the ugly dress and had to remind that her waist was small??? Weird. I also think beyonce lypsing because of the way she dances and everything and never gets out if breath is IMPOSSIBLE! Even aretha and other very known chruch singers, opera singers etc... have to breathe, we are humans! So beyonce would be like the only person in this earth who can do that! That is why her stans stan so hard because they actually believe its possible! Her voice sounds exactly the same, she does the EXACT same thing, even for the flaws and all song (which btw i like), she cries at the exact same moment?!!! I think she has a nice voice but i never thought she sing that good! never!
