MUST LISTEN! Sasha Fierce Goes Tone-Deaf

| Filed under: Beyonce


Oh, Beyonce!!

Radio god Howard Stern somehow acquired the sound board recording from Beyonce's performance of "If I Were A Boy" on the Today Show last November and all we can say is WOW.

Miss Sasha Fierce was a total trainwreck!!!

Girl could break a wine glass with those vocals!

Beyowulf supposedly sang live to a recorded track. The audience at home heard the nice, pretty version. And the sound board picked up that hideousness above.

Reports have speculated the Stern clip was digitally modified to make Beyonce sound like garbage, but with the music still perfectly in tune we're not too sure if we believe it!!

What do U think??

Give the clips above a spin!

Update: Aladdin82, the person who made the "sound board" video, has just confirmed to PerezHilton.com that it is indeed fake.

Too good to be true!

    I have no clue.



  2. 2

    this is old, its already been told that its fake and some guy just messed it up for fun.



  3. 3

    a vocal track from the board would be isolated, which would make it easy to pass through auto-tune and fuck with the notes. my engineers did it to me on my first album as a late night prank and i was mortified. you can tell she knows how to sing on key - the notes that were pitched have what's called a digital alias. that is to say, you can here the "digital bend" when she hits the really bad "off key" notes. it takes more of a trained ear to hear it, but it's definitely there.

  4. 4

    hahahaha LOVE it



  5. 5

    im in the air, first it seems really off tune and bumpy like somebody had tampered with it… but all of a sudden it just seems like she might be sick!?



  6. 6

    thats OD



  7. 7

    that is absolutely not possible. it HAS to be altered, perez are you serious? beyonce's not the best singer in the world, but you have to try real hard to sing THAT BAD. thos pitches are nowhere near right and it doesn't sound like bad singing so much as random misplaced notes that don't fit with the music. i highly doubt this is real. besides, you're not all that credible.



  8. 8

    She was flat in the beginning but those high notes are fake.
    Fake as the retouched image above.



  9. 9

    the stern version sounds altered alot



  10. 10

    sorry, but this totally sounds fake. When she hits those weird high notes it doesn't even sound human, sounds very off



  11. 11

    Both recordings are COMPLETELY different!! Beyonce did a beautiful job, as usual, and Howard Stern is just an idiot.



  12. 12

    LOL SHE SUCKS…REGARDLESS IF ITS FAKE OR NOT.



  13. 13

    AND YOU STOLE THIS FROM TMZ LOSER…



  14. 14

    Always when I saw her on TV 'live' singing I thought that her voice would be like this!! I'm not suprised. Hearing her live was never special.. so I'm not suprised, but I thing it's annoying that she's always described as real good singer. Because shes not!



  15. 15

    This is how you know gossip blogs and radio host are stupid fucktards full of shit. Only a moron would believe this to be true, and ONLY a moron. Even a retarded person would know B sang live, and this is clearly tweaked. You lose ALLLL validity, Mario, for even entertaining this. I hate people like you.



  16. 16

    Im Not Sure, But If It IS TRUE that She Sounded That Bad, makes Me Feel Good Knowing Someone Like Beyonce Isnt Perfect & That maybe She Aint that Good. Our Perception of beauty and perfection is flawed because of how they cover everything up.



  17. 17

    love Beyonce!



  18. 18

    oh, it's so fake!



  19. 19

    thats so fake



  20. 20

    tmz's already talked to the guy who doctored the tape — hoax



  21. 21

    Did you just wake up? wow you're slow…



  22. 22

    It's not as if she had a pretty voice to begin with. Her voice was always rough sounding.



  23. 23

    FIRST!!!!!!!



  24. 24

    damn! girl was ALL OVER THE PLACE. i think there were parts the fudged with, but on a whole, i think that she was pretty bad, regardless. damn! girl better get her ears checked!



  25. 25

    This is sooooo fake!!!!!!! You can tell its altered



  26. 26

    I say it's real and she just had one of those days, I forgive her!



  27. 27

    What a surprise Beyonce is not all that??? LOL! She is just a stuck up ghetto diva with a pushy dad and a mogul husband and BOTH of them make sure there's enough of her to milk… can't believe she's been out there for this long!



  28. 28

    DID YOU JUST WAKE UP PEREZ?WOW YOUR SLOW!



  29. 29

    Well.. she may sing like shit or not, but she and Lauer are assholes. "Etta James was great." Etta James is till alive and hates Beyonce's take on her in that movie.



  30. 30

    oy vey.
    and I totally once respected her for her singing abilities.



  31. 31

    This is real, I am currently taking sound engineering and this def sounds like a feed from the mic and it sounds like right before it goes through autotune, she is horrible



  32. 32

    BTW would love to hear Heidi Montag live as in singing live without any electronic device to soothen her voice lol… that would definetely be nerve breaking… I wonder if she uses her annoying singing voice as a method of torture!



  33. 33

    Howard who? Oh, Howard Stern. Didn't he used to be on the radio or something? Everyone used to listen to him, he would get all the hottest A-list guests…many years ago.

    Now who really listens to him? No one. What kind of guests does he get now? F-listers, crackheads, and skanky strippers.

    Oh well, his deal with Sirius has all but bankrupted them as he was a HUGE bust.



  34. 34

    maybe she had some audio issues, if she can't hear herself sing, she can't sing on key.
    I think it kinda sounds like that.



  35. 35

    I don't think that is real.



  36. 36

    It does sound like someone messed it up.



  37. 37

    tmz already confirmed this is fake.



  38. 38

    this is REAL, it sounds like mic feedback before autotune



  39. 39

    So not true!!



  40. 40

    Totally fake.



  41. 41

    She fucking sucks. Whatev.



  42. 42

    Lol- that is beyond fake. I'm surprised at you, Perez!



  43. 43

    I don't think she can hear herself. But OMG! this is so odd !



  44. 44

    If the sample is altered, it wasn't done by the Stern show. He never has cause to talk about Beyonce anyway, so there would be no reason they would have. However, it is possible that they found it already altered and weren't aware if it was real or not. I heard it live on the show though, and may I say, if it is real. Woof!



  45. 45

    I am a singer and song writer for Sony ATV. THOSE NOTES WERE PITCH SHIFTED TO MAKE HER SOUND BAD. Please any fool would know that. Its disrespectful…and obviously fake. LIsten to my songs at www.myspace.com/aronblankenburg



  46. 46

    you can completely tell it was messed with, it sounds so computerized. someone needs to get a life



  47. 47

    The is so fake it's not funny. You can tell it's been computer inhanced. It changes keys while she is in the middle of a note! Which would only be possible if someone was tampering with it with a computer to make it sound bad. Perez you must not know much about singing if you could not tell this was fake.



  48. 48

    FUCK BEYWULF……HOWARD STERN RULEZ.

    MATTHEW DOES NOT KNOW WHAT US IN THE STERN ARMY CAN DO…….

    just ask jon bon jovi…..STERN RULEZ..BABA BOOEY



  49. 49

    already proven to be a HOAX. go b.



  50. 50

    She's shit no matter what!



  51. 51

    This is BS for sure. Even I don't sing that bad, and my voice is rotten.



  52. 52

    Re: LaceyEdwards

    YOU ARE A WHORE…..STERN RULEZ

    LACEY EDWARDS IS A WHORE AND I WILL MAKE SURE THE WRAP UP SHOW, THE INTERN SHOW, THE MISERABLE MEN SHOW, AND STEVE LANGFORD KNOW……..

    LACEY EDWARDS IS A WHORE….TWITTER.COM/STERNSHOW



  53. 53

    Howard wouldn't fuck with it without copping to it. They always admit when they do it. ps beyonce sucks



  54. 54

    OMG! This is too funny. The high notes are fake. This must be a joke. Come on, she can't be this bad…



  55. 55

    COMPLETELY doctored. And lame. Not worth our time. But, hey, isn't there something happening between you and Miss California–? :(



  56. 56

    its fake. the girl can sing and you can totally tell someone fucked with the clip if you listen closely



  57. 57

    of course it was modified!!
    she is professional and has been in the business for quite sometime, she wouldn't sound like that



  58. 58

    its a fake, check out the christina one, thats how i knew and its live not a concert.



  59. 59

    Sorry Perez but TMZ already debunked this a few hours ago. Late, once again, with lies.



  60. 60

    dear perez.. i like you. i think you're entertaining and i think you're smart and sassy. but this is just stupid. beyonce has sung live a bizillion times and anyone would know that that's not her. even if she were ever off-key, or sick, or whatever, she'd never sound like THAT.

    you putting up this kind of non-story really tarnishes your blog. it makes you look needlessly catty, silly and childish. i want to love you. stop the nonsense.



  61. 61

    of course its fake u lame!



  62. 62

    That is as fake as your *SHOCK* at Miss California's honesty



  63. 63

    BABA BOOOOOOOEY

  64. k-lee says – reply to this


    64

    I don't believe this crap. It's just too messed up. Beyonce wouldn't be where she is right now if she sang like that.

  65. ydur says – reply to this


    65

    it's absolutely fake, and unnatural! I don't think she sings perfectly but that is not definitely a natural singing voice… I would sue that bitch if I was Beyonce



  66. 66

    Go back to bashing beauty pageant contestants, Perez. At least you have a better chance of fooling people into believing you.



  67. 67

    that was entertaining.

  68. k-lee says – reply to this


    68

    It's so funny I want an MP3 of it eventhough it's fake.

  69. Jic2c says – reply to this


    69

    yeah it sounds fake b/c when you're a singer and she's trained and what-not….why would ur voice fluctuate to those degrees. It just doesn't seem consistent



  70. 70

    OMG..THAT IS F_IN HILLARIOUS…SORRY BEYONCE



  71. 71

    HAHA too jkks

    Perez your getting so behind with the news. This has already been proven to be a hoax. From TMZ:
    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."

    Apparently, the dude never went to an Ashlee Simpson concert…



  73. 73

    That is so obvious its a fake
    If beyonce sung like that i think people would have figured it out by now.
    She has been singing since 1990.



  74. 74

    It sounds to me like she always sounds which is crappy.



  75. 75

    If you think this is real you are a MORON just like Perez. I can't believe you would be stupid enough to even put this up. You should be embarassed.



  76. 76

    FAKE.
    at the "other" site they say not only that it's altered but talked to the guy that did it.



  77. 77

    There is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY this is Beyonce. I've heard her sing live in a very intimate setting and the girl can sing the fricking phone book! No way!



  78. 78

    Fake or real.. It's kinda funny.. If it's real I can understand it just like they said, she can't hear herself, no soundcheck, that plaza etc.



  79. 79

    BEYONCE KNOW HOW TO RAISE THE ROOF!!

    STERN RULEZ…AND YOU ARE A KID TOUCHER

    Re: Vulgar Smurf

    BABA BOOEY TO YOU TOO….

    STERN RULEZ…RIP BLUE IRIS



  82. 82

    Any idiot could tell instantly it was fake. but yet, because of your jealousy of Beyonce…you leave it up, even though you know for sure it's fake. You are the most negative person on the planet Mario.



  83. 83

    thats mad fucked up of stern cuz she doesnt sound like that n its obvious so thats really OD fucked how he did that he should get sued that dick



  84. 84

    they used a program they use on Protools which adjusts the pitch of the vocals.



  85. 85

    if anyone is as good a singer as beyonce it would be hard to be THAT off key and then make wonderful records.



  86. 86

    Srsly, there is NO way the above could have been Beyonce. You would have to be completely tone deaf to sing that 'shiteously'. There is no way Beyonce, who has sung live on so many occasions, could possibly have gained the acclaim she has if she were truly THAT tone deaf. It takes a lot of effort for a talented musician to even pretend it.

    Even in the real version live, her vocals were not perfect. Her voice must have been feeling iffy, because she has been much more ON singing Listen, which is much more challenging, vocally.



  87. 87

    Howard Stern a radio god??? Fuck Stern Opie and Anthony Rules!!!!!!!!!



  88. 88

    She still sucks so who gives a fuck?



  89. 89

    LOL!

  90. Laury says – reply to this


    90

    Of course it's fake. If there's one bitch who can sing live, it's Beyoncé.

  91. Eya says – reply to this


    91

    omg you're an idiot! it obviously sounds sooooo fake!



  92. 92

    Doesn't matter if it was fake, it was hilarious to listen to.



  93. 93

    Puhleeeeease….anyone can tell those tapes were altered. Does not even sound like someone tone deaf…now, britney's board tapes on the other hand….



  94. 94

    i knew that shizz was fake!!!!!! beyonce can sing her ass off!!!



  95. 95

    and to you assholes that wana call perez out for "stealing" his posts from other websites, you all can go suck a dick because it's really not a big deal. if his point in posting this stuff was all about being the first to post them, you could call him out but it's obviously not. he posts them because that's what he does. get a life and stop trying to call him out on dumb shit.



  96. 96

    Totally fake…It would take more talent than Beyonce has to actually sing a song like this >>



  97. 97

    it sounds very altered



  98. 98

    really perez?
    you couldn't tell that it was fake?
    did you hear it?
    the notes were all over the place
    as much as she sang that song she would know the notes
    and Queen Beyonce never misses a beat/note



  99. 99

    Re: the last star – LOL!!! That was some roof!
    *
    Mario, at least the people close to her would have booed or something….



  100. 100

    Re: Shaneypoo

    hahahaha!

    i see someone learned a lot in their "training"
    pick a new ocupation because any idiot could tell that was fake
