The Man Who Butchered Beyonce

| Filed under: Beyonce

The Internets was ablaze yesterday with a video that purported to have a sound board recording of Beyonce from the Today show sounding like shit in your ears.

We confirmed that the "sound board recording" was a fake. And, now, the Perezcious reader who made it is speaking out.

Why? How'd he do it?

He explains all (above)!

  5. 5

  6. 6

    How could ANYONE have thought this was real? GULLIBLE PEOPLE!

    LMFAO

    ha! aladdin ur hot… keep doing wut u do!!!



  9. 9

    hmm.. very intresting. Although he is right about the music and magazine industries hiring people in his feild to do " touch" up work.. I still dont get why he had to be a dbag and f-up her vocals. I think hes a little man who has a very big ego issue. Frued, Sarte and the rest of the philospical/ psychological feild would have a super time trying to fix that guy

    WHAT A BAG OF DOUCHE!



  11. 11

    Wow, what's with everyone calling him a leech or a douche… he's damn talented and will make ton's of money one day making singers YOU like sound decent.



  12. 12

    Get over yourself dude.



  13. 13



  14. 14

    this warranted over 10 mins? What a knob.



  15. 15

    He blinks a lot which can be a symptom of not being honest. Also, he keeps looking off to the left. which, if he is right handed can also indicate he is making up his comments. Beyonce probably either paid the guy to say this or he is just trying to get some attention by claiming he did it because that voice on the tape…it really really sounded like Beyonce.



  16. 16

    What's his youtube id??



  17. 17

    another bey hater!!!thats all this is!

    Re: Spindoc – wow your a little to serious about this…



  19. 19

    I think thats funny. Good for him. I love it.



  20. 20

    Gotta love computer art students. At least some people can appreciate it!



  21. 21

    C'mon, it is funny, we know she can sing live and BOY is he a cute one!



  22. 22

    I think this guy is being paid by the Beyonce camp to say that he did it, when in fact the recording was real. Ever heard someone sing when they have earphones on? That's what she sounded like. She was wearing earplugs and listening to the track which she lip synced to, and she (and all other "singers" who lip sync) sing along with it to make it look real.

    Of course she can sing, but that recording was real if you ask me…this is all just damage control.



  23. 23

    'the perez reader' so perez, are YOU somehow taking credit for it??? good, let the lawsuits commence. let Mario be listed on it, take his money. and you perez, confirmed it was a fake????? after everyone else did. do you think he is the only mastermind that could do this??? almost anyone with a computer could do it moron



  24. 24

    Re: buffymybasset – agreed



  25. 25

    I don't know about anyone else here, but I am mesmerized by this guy's eyebrows.

    26

    i have not laughed this hard in a LONG time. of course it's a fake, that's the brilliance of this. omg, so very funny. maybe they could do the reverse on poor enrique and ashlee. there's not enuf technology to make him or her sound half as good as beyonce.



  27. 27

    i love beyonce. this dude is such a loser. i hope she sues your dumb ass



  28. 28

    i found that interesting - he was making it a good point - it is funny how angry people get like the 1st post simone1 - chill out dude - your making a tit out of yourself - i think beyonce will cope dont you lol!!! everything in the media is fake - trust me its what i do - and we like it that way :)



  29. 29

    HOW IS WHAT HE DID ANY DIFFERENT FROM WHAT BEYOWULF AND OTHER ARTISTS DO..NO ONE AND I MEAN NO ONE SINGS LIVE ANYMORE! THEY ALL SING OVER TRACKS AND/OR LIP SYNC..AND I DONT THINK HIS RENDITION OF HER WAS THAT FAR OFF…SHE DOES SCREECH LIKE A DYING CAT WHEN SHE TRIES TO HIT THOSE HIGH NOTES..HER TALENT IS OVERRATED!



  30. 30

    Re: TheJenny – hee hee hee spot on ha!!!!



  31. 31

    People need to lighten up. I think this is great and he is showing off a talent he has. I love his explanation and totally agree that singers need to be more real and leave all these sound enhancing things behind. If you can't really sing, you shouldn't be famous



  32. 32

    I dont understand how people can comment saying that I hope they sue you etc…. its an audio editing program. I am a producer for media and I do remixes, so why dont i get sued? hmm?



  33. 33

    Matt is a mess. he stirs up trouble all the time, but it is funny. But come on, people. you could tell it was fake! nobody sings that bad and you could tell it was her voice strung out. i hope the knowles dont come after him for damages



  34. 34

    You're a fucking liar! You peddled that video not only as genuine but backed up with your own opinion of how could it be fake when the sound was still fine. Im just about done with this site, you are a disgrace! A lying hypocritical, disgusting, disgraceful scum bag, who shame s all associated with you. SUCK IT!



  35. 35

    Love it! Good job Aladdin82. Way to put things in perspective. :)



  36. 36

    Is this guy for real? He is really justifying himself being bored and f*cking up someone's song when all along it was probably his innability to be able to decide that day whether he was going to get online and masturbate, or mess with Beyonce's song. The most classic part of his justification is when he states that he's providing humor because of the poor economy. I would probably laugh harder if I saw him step off a street corner and get taken out by a bus. What the F*CK, dude? Stick to what you know best! Go get your eyebrows did! Dueces!



  37. 37

    Re: jonathanonetreehill – She can't sue him dumbass… Freedom of speech



  38. 38

    How much money do you think it took Beyonce or JZ to find a random moron who will take the blame for her disastrous performance? Easy…cover up her lack of vocals and give instant fame and some cash to a moron. Win win situation. Grow up, it's PR and damage control at its best. Kudos to the JZ team.

    aladdin82, what program are you using? i'd really like to give it a go!



  40. 40

    JANET FOREVER!!!!!



  41. 41

    what a douchenozzle, get a fuckin job

    this is her occupation, i hope someone goes to his work (when he gets a job) and fucks his shit up and put it all over the internet as real…
    douche, he should have kept his mouth shut…everybody wants there 15 minutes

    oh, give the guy a break! it was hillarious!! nobodys suing anybody, there are no damages. i know you guys are great at being a bunch of bitches, but you should focus all this energy on fixing whatever's wrong with your own lives!

    I agree.



  46. 46

    well, i'm glad he admitted to it people really believed this shit was true.



  47. 47

    hahahaha! PROOF THAT MATHEW KNOWLES IS FUCKING IDIOT LIKE WE ALL SUSPECTED. JUST SHOWS HOW THEY MAKE BAD SINGERS APPEAR GOOD TOO LIKE BRIT BRIT.



  48. 48

    BEYONCE STILL LIP SYNCS HALF HER PERFORMANCES. NO AUDIO MOD OR MR. KNOWLES RANT WILL CORRECT THAT.



  49. 49

    Re: Spindoc – Looking off to the left and up when you're talking is usually a sign of accessing a memory, not lying. He could also be reading notes.



  50. 50

    who cares what he did? he is fucking HOT…the guy is BEAUTIFUL



  51. 51

    OH. My. GOD. Does this man know what kind of legal exposure he's into here? He's admitting damaging the career of Beyonce. She can now collect damages easily. He's obviously very misdirected and a bit psychotic. He can't really think he and his work product are going to be well received…

    I am just stunned! He needs advice of counsel and fast. And in the meantime, PLEASE do not admit to anything further. This is a first rate fool.



  52. 52

    What the idiots SPINDOC and IS IT TRUE don't know is that this video has been up since LAST YEAR and ALADDIN82 was the uploader, IT WAS ON HIS ACCOUNT!!!!!!!!! Please get over yourselves. Are you mad that Beyonce is as famous as her white counterparts??? Are you mad that Beyonce a strong BLACK WOMAN will not sit in the sidelines while Chrissy and Brit Brit takes all the shine?????? Stop hating you brain dead losers.



  53. 53

    PEREZ DAHLING I APPLAUD YOU FOR BEING RESPONSIBLE AND MAKING SURE THE RUMOR NEVER GOT OUT OF CONTROL. KEEP BLOGGIN' PEREZcious!!!!!!!!



  54. 54

    what a punk! perez, you're an idiot for even giving this punk even 5 minutes of fame. He did it for attention. And he acts like what he did was so clever. A 5 year old could do it. This is why I hate the internet at times…everybody wants like 5 minutes of internet fame and will do anything to get it. I hope they sue him and send him back to Iraq. See how the infidel likes retouching audio and video living in a cave. whoever is for removing this video from this site completely say yes.

    Oh, and how he did it. Open Audio in Cool Edit Pr or Sound Forge, highlight parts of song…Edit Pitch Shift..export as mp3. Post on site. It urks me to death that he's acting like he's so clever that he did this.



  55. 55

    haha…could care less about Beyonce…but this douche thinks he's smart.
    You went to school to learn something every 12 year knows how to do.
    Just because you are sucking someones dick at the Today show doesn't mean your smart. Grab a brain, create new software….everyone chimp knows how to use Cubebase…powertools…adobe audtiion….etc…photoshop…you ain't special…



  56. 56

    I'm an atty. Beyonce does and undoubtedly WILL file a cause of action against this man. He has defamed her and she can also claim unlimited punitive damages. Free speech is not even any kind of factor here. He set out to damage her with intent and is admitting doing so. I am just stunned anyone could be this stupid….



  57. 57

    "…take and E sharp and bump it up to an E"

    That brought the lols cause I'm a nerd.



  58. 58

    lmao my hero!

  59. tasha says – reply to this


    59

    He's a douchebag. Putting a video out like that isn't funny and her father had every right to defend her. Especially since half the people still believe the video was for real. Your an asshole.



  60. 60

    I knew it couldn't be real and I know he just wants a job and fame BUT hello defamation?!?



  61. 61

    Take this down - it's soo irritating!



  62. 62

    anyone with half a brain would have known it was a fake. And dude is totally gay, those eyesbrows make my gaydar go off. Plus I know him, lol, and he IS gay….



  63. 63

    Can I say he is freakin Sexy… Damn yummy



  64. 64

    matthew knowles is the devil



  65. 65

    Dude, if your career is so successful, why are you whoring yourself out on youtube giving out your personal email address. Pathetic. And your guilty of exactly what you speak out against. But you're worse. You didn't expose anything. You're made a fake and tried to pass it off as real. You think this will help your career? You're finished. Or at least you will be when her lawyers are done with you. Way to go Einstein.



  66. 66

    YOU DOUCHE BAG. YOU WANNA BE RECOGNIZED IN THE WRONG WAY WITH THE WRONG PEOPLE. SHES WORKED REALLY HARD TO GET WHERE SHE IS AND IT CAUSE OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU SOME IDIOT WILL BELIEVE HALF THE SHIT YOU SAY, AND COULD DESTROY SOME ONE. THANK GOG FOR PEOPLE LIKE HER FATHER THAT ACT QUICK TO STUPID SHIT LIKE THIS. AND TAKE CARE OF NOT ONLY HIS CLIENT——————BUT FIRST AND FOREMOST ————-HIS DAUGHTER!!!!!!!!!

    OH AND IF YOU BELIEVE IN GOD—PLEASE DON'T EVER TRY TO PLAY THAT SHIT WITH HER HUSBAND———– HOVA.



  67. 67

    i agree with everyone, why her, everyone knows she has a great voice, he gets publicity from this , i am not sure how good though..why not do something that will get peoples attention in a good way..there is only one perez hilton, he knows what he is doing….hey perez great job on larry King..great reviews from vegas, i was in the audience, you were so smart..kudos dude..



  68. 68

    wow that guy sounds crazy at least hes a fan but why did he choose to do that



  69. 69

    alrite she did sound pretty bad but seriously, every other time she sounds great. of course the one time she scews up, people have to talk about it everywhere. and shes only human, she can't be perfect



  70. 70

    I'm guessing Howard Stern and company realized this was fake. I'm an audio/music engineering student and you can tell off the bat this is a fake. Pitch-correction, adding flattering reverb, compression, etc. are added to studio and live performances constantly, even for the most talented singers. I think this dude's cool for exposing that, I've always been fascinated by industry-insider stuff. Semirelated, this dude really doesn't know much about music theory when he talks about notes, keys, and vibrato…



  71. 71

    i didnt fall for it.. software to change tune is NOTHING new people. fucking retard



  72. 72

    blah blah blah…who the fuck wastes their time to making someones vocals sound bad?? oh wait, this idiot!!

    get the fuck over yourself



  73. 73

    what an ass!



  74. 74

    the program is melodyne, and the note "E sharp" does not exist. that would be an F. there are no sharps or flats between E n F and B n C



  75. 75

    To the people asking who wastes thier time on sh*t like this? Well people who are mastering their craft - whether starting out or experienced with years behind them. I'm a designer and not a day goes by where i am not manipulating sh*t for my own personal practice. Learning new tricks, new techniques or even new programs. It's how we increase our skills and how we get more people to hire us because in this kind of industry - it's not the paper or school you went to, it is the talent you can show the employers. Get over it - he is just a guy mucking around on his computer. Whether it's his work or not… take a chill pill - breathe a little… get out in the big world!



  76. 76

    Re: RadioChick – COULD YOU PLEASE GIVE THIS ASS SOME LESSONS.YOU SOUND WAY BETTER THAN HIM.



  77. 77

    what an idiot, trying to take credit for something his software easily does with a mouseclick. that's his talent? he'd be better off plucking other people's eyebrows.



  78. 78

    #66 YOU KNOW I MEANT TO SAY GOD. RIGHT.



  79. 79

    I guess to the FAKER this was all just a bunch of gigglez and shitz. And he has the "nerve" to even mention the crappy economy and how we all need to find something to laugh about. I wonder what kind of "laughter" the actual sound crew went through when they were confronted about a possible leak on the Today Show?????

    The FAKER is pretty brave to be showing his face — especially if he doesn't know if his "harmless" prank resulted in someone being fired.



  80. 80

    what a jerk!



  81. 81

    If he cared about shit being "real" he should have gotten a real recording of it and not had to produce a fake, HELLO! Fucking idiot …



  82. 82

    that video made me rofl! i thought it was HILARIOUS



  83. 83

    Re: welchi89

    I agree with you!



  84. 84

    Something doesn't make sense here.
    Sure you can use audio software to alter the key. But how come the background music stays in the correct key?
    The only way he could have done what he's saying would be if he had an isolated vocal track, altered it and then dropped it in on the unaltered original music.



  85. 85

    WOW o_O I didn't even know you could do stuff like that! "Correcting" LIVE singing?! Holy crap. I guess you can't believe anything you see OR hear on TV - even if it's live.



  86. 86

    Hey Aladdin seriously sweety you should have stayed in the closet. Snatching your 15 mins. of fame for playing with a sound program is honestly embarrassing. I could have done what you did and I just play around with music engineering. The only thing this will get you is laughed at. In the first minute of this video I couldn't understand why Perez put you on his site. After 5 mins. I understood … you come across as an immature nob who is full of himself FOOlishly … now that's notoriety.



  87. 87

    lol that doesn't even sound like her…obviously fake without need to point it out



  88. 88

    i like this guy



  89. 89

    So. Damn. Brilliant.

    I totally agree with every word he says!
