As much distaste as I may personally feel for Beyonce, and I feel a lot, fairness and truth must prevail. So, in said fairness, I sadly report that this board mix recording of Beyonce performing on Today was apparently altered by someone who hates Beyonce as much as I do.
Beyonce has officially been cleared of all bad singing charges — the atrocious supposed “board mix” of her performance on “The Today Show” last year was altered after all.
Just as Mathew Knowles told us, the audio clip that many people believed was leaked from “Today” was indeed a fake.
In fact, TMZ found the person behind the prank who was surprised it went as far as it did, saying, “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.”
Oh, those twits at TMZ seemed so confident in their source! I trusted and now I must live with the devastation that she didn’t actually sound like she was stuck under the wheels of an SUV.
People, this is not the way to start my day. Hold me.
