That'll show him!
In an interview with The Sun, Tony Visconti criticized the music industry for using autotune and other computer programs to edit, fix, and perfect pop stars' voices so that they sound flawless — and almost fake — on their records.
And in his effort to shade the overproduced sound, the 72-year-old called out Miz Adkins, saying:
You turn the radio on and it's fluff, you are listening to 90% computerised voices. We know Adele has a great voice but it's even questionable if that is actually her voice or how much has been manipulated. We don't know. There's a sound to pop now that is so perfect it's boring, because everything is fixed."
Whoaaaaaa. This is the QUEEN, you're talking about here!
"Some d*ckhead … tried to say that my voice isn't me on record. Dude, suck my d*ck."
Watch Adele shut Tony down (below)!
But on Monday, the New York native told Billboard that he's sorry for what he said about the 28-year-old, explaining:
"I'm sorry that what I said in regards to what's being played on radio was misconstrued yet I cannot apologize for something taken the wrong way. If Adele has taken my comments as offensive that was certainly not my intent. Adele has a great voice and it brings pleasure to millions."
Well, at least Tony has seen the error of his ways, and hopefully he'll think twice before calling out Adele ever again!
