Soundz Issues An Apology

Published: Monday 20th Dec 2010 by Trent

Word of our interview with Soundz has reverberated across the industry. Now, after facing severe backlash from  some of Beyonce’s crazed fans regarding his statements about her songwriting, the ‘Gimme Dat’ producer has issued an apology.

Read what Soundz had to say about the situation below:

I gotta say somethings were taken out of context in the interview. I’ve never been in a session with [Beyonce] but I’ve heard rumors, none of which I have evidence or personal recollection, so I can’t really truthfully speak on that case.

I’m a huge fan of Beyonce and I deal with a lot of mutual people of hers and I’m hurt that people have taken the interview negatively. I’m a very funny, outspoken and humble person, and I never meant to intentionally offend anyone. I cant take back what I’ve said but I am apologetic to her and whoever may have been offended in that interview.

In other news, is anyone else excited to hear the possible smash hit that Soundz has crafted for Kelly Rowland entitled ‘Make Believe’?

Thoughts?

    Don’t apologize Soundz! Expose that b****.
    So tired of these biased medias.

  6. Holly December 20, 2010

    Her stans call her “Beysus” so when the truth comes about her evil side filled with corruption, lies, and overexposure, of course they’re hurt.
    Soundz spoke the truth!

  7. THEREALNICKY December 20, 2010

    NO

    DUMB STUPID BEYONCE FANS WERE GIVING HIM DEATH THREATS ON TWITTER AS HE WROTE ON HIS PAGE

    THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I DONT REALLY LIKE BEYONCE, BECAUSE OF HER IDIOTIC FANS. IF CHICK CAN BARELY SPEAK PROPER ENGLISH, WHAT MAKES YOU THINK SHE CAN WRITE A DEEP SONG LIKE HALO?

    HUN, BE A MAN AND STICK TO YOUR WORD…..

  10. carl December 20, 2010

    omg that is CRAZY! I for one didn’t go in on him but this is. WOW…

  11. Beyonce Stan December 20, 2010

    B**** we dont need your apology. its too late, you tried to slander the great name of BEYSUS, so its off with your head.

  12. Dani December 20, 2010

    LMAO!!!! The Stans went in on his poor soul that had him running for cover. Bey’s team really needs to get on these blogs & sue the s*** out of them for slander!!! ~SIPS DELICIOUS TEA!!~

  13. He was right and is now wrong. December 20, 2010

    Those rumors are true.. U heard right soundz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    That statement is lame. Everything you said was the TRUTH! Why you take it back?
    Why Beyonce got such crazy fans? Because that’s why she is such a media addicted person, only NO LIFE people love her!!!

  14. SparkD December 20, 2010

    Sam & Trent, whether you intended to do it or not. You set this guy up. I feel he shouldn’t have to apologize at all.

  15. Mindset212 December 20, 2010

    Im not a Beyonce Stan or fanatic, but I do RESPECT what she does as an entertainer.. unlike some people of her very own race, which is weird to me. Soundz crossed the lines of business etiquette and confidentiality. Its as simple as that. There are producers who know dirt on ALL of your faves including Mariah and how she records which could be considered fraud. Take his apology as a man who wants to work in the industry again and for God’s sake. Get off Beyonces nuts..

  16. SparkD December 20, 2010

    I hope you people who are calling her “Beysus” ARE NOT CHRISTIANS. IT’S AN INSULT TO CHRISTIANITY AND TREADING ON BLASPHEMY.

    DON’T DISRESPECT ANYONE RELIGION USING THESE NAMES.

  17. Nichole December 20, 2010

    I wouldn’t have issues Bey stans an apology, if I were Soundz. He was simply being honest, and revealed something a lot of us already knew about Beyonce. The woman is fake, and corrupt as well as her father.

    An apology my ass, Soundz don’t have to apology to psychotic jack-asses.

    At least he didn’t take back what he said about Bey, and that is the good part.

  18. carl December 20, 2010

    ^^ Ummm not every Beyonce fan does it. Check twitter people called Rihanna ‘Rihsus’ and Birtney ‘Godney’.

  19. SparkD December 20, 2010

    @MINDSET212

    What line of etiquette. We are in an ERA OF OPEN EXPOSURE due to technology. There’s no such thing as “etiquette” when someone is EDUCATING you on the BUSINESS DEAL you’re getting into.

    I’d rather SOUNDZ to tell me for free, than purchase a music business “secrets” book or video to find out. In the past, only those connected to people in the business knew—now, everyone knows.

    SOUNDZ did not have to apologize. Karrine Stephens never did!

  20. To0tiebadazz December 20, 2010

    On one hand what he is said may be true about Bey in some cases, the problem with him is that he’s never been in the studio with her and is speaking hearsay. If anything, he Should’ve only speak what his actual experience was. But hey stans Would’ve attacked him regardless. lol He know now!!! LMAO

  21. SparkD December 20, 2010

    @CARL

    I JUST WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP BLASPHEMING GOD’S NAME AND DISRESPECTING OTHER PEOPLE’S RELIGION. These celebrities are not martyrs for good.

    —-

    Soundz should NOT have apologized! He knows were are in the days of Twitter and TMZ, the TRUTH comes out all the times.

  22. Mindset212 December 20, 2010

    @SPARKD There is a such thing as business etiquette. If you have no clue what that is.. my only question is .. how old are you? It would be the same if an artists hair stylist came forward with pics of the artist before providing services. A plastic surgeon releasing candid pics of a client. As a producer there are certain aspects of the industry you dont reveal.. more specifically specifics of an artists business deals… Ok Beyonce doesnt write.. big damn Deal.. what is with you people trying to expose her to be this evil entity. Her failing or being great makes none of us S**T.

  23. SparkD December 20, 2010

    @TO0TIEBADAZZ

    Those who have worked in an around the industry doesn’t have to be in the studio to know what happens behind the scence. Maybe he should have spoke in clarity, but NO APOLOGY is needed.

    The Dream has confirmed some things he said.

  24. Jay1 December 20, 2010

    Please !Not a genuine apolgy BULL S***!

  25. Becca December 20, 2010

    i think all the comparisons to God and Christ and horrible. people these days are so ignorant.

    also Bey stans are crazy. but lmao @ crazy nicky calling them out when she has the most issues

    obviously soundz didn’t apologize for the stans. he apologized because he doesn’t want bey to blacklist him.

  26. SparkD December 20, 2010

    MINDSET212

    I know business etiquette I have worked corporate and in the business, so none of this is shocking. That’s why I said Soundz was set up by Trent/Sam because of his immaturity.

    But he doesn’t owe anyone an apology in the culture of TMZ, Radar, and Twitter.

    The things he said was common mumblings in music circles, but any person with publicity training knows if you go to blogs, whatever you say must be strategic. He should have had his interview documented from his end.

    If he wanted to take a blow, to get his name out for 15 seconds—that was a poor move.

    But on the “audience / fan” end, I think there’s room for the “TMZ-styled” exposure. Many of these people want to produce and write for these artists, and need to know what is going on. If you choose to go into business with these artists and their teams, don’t pout your lips if your publishing is getting split 5 ways.

  27. JustaFan December 20, 2010

    LoL …. :)) #ICan’t .
    He really did this …. ?!?! *dead*

    Anyway ….
    Beyonce is the best Performer these days even if she does not write her songs and even if she is the most hated singer in the world ! #justsayin’

    And can’t wait to hear that new Kelly song !

  28. SparkD December 20, 2010

    Honestly, I recall Madonna getting similar accusations earlier in their career.

  29. Mari December 20, 2010

    @Nicky

    Loud is not going to sell more than IASF. Rihanna’s only going to re-release Loud once

    hehehehehehe . . . .

    That said, I have no beef with Bey. Much respect to her. So Bey stans, don’t crucify me.

  30. THEREALNICKY December 20, 2010

    @ MARI

    MAYBE NOT IN THE US LOUD WONT SELL MORE THAN IASF

    BUT WORLDWIDE, PRETTY SURE.

    ACCORDING TO CHART NEWS , IASF AS OF LAST WEEK HAS SOLD 6.7 M WORLDWIDE.

  31. jay December 20, 2010

    What a p****, if he isnt even big enough to have even been in a session with beyonce, how can you say something about beyonce doesnt write her own songs, and it sounds especially stupid, when he aint even a well know successful producer, before i hadnt even heard of him. what a idiot!!

  32. Heaven December 20, 2010

    LMAO at the naivety. He’s in a business where he isn’t that powerful. He depends on artists for work. Her stans were an annoyance and caused a ripple but his REAL backlash came from within the industry.

    Of course he backtracked whether he believed every word he said or not. Never bite the hand that feeds you trying to keep it real. Unless you are the BOSS…REAL can lead you to the unemployment line. Those that have REAL careers can relate.

  33. LDJ_BEY December 20, 2010

    @THEREALNICKY LMFAO @ you thinking Loud will outsell Bday and IASF….sit down somewhere….It’s gonna lose steam just like Rated R did last year. TRY AGAIN!!!!!

  34. jewelz December 20, 2010

    SMH… just admit you got caught n*gga! you just ruined your chance of ever working with beyonce. wait till matthew hears about this, it ain’t over. you gon be looking for another job soon, he don’t play!

  35. KD December 20, 2010

    …Crazed stans?

    Soundz: “I’ve never been in a session with [Beyonce] but I’ve heard rumors, none of which I have evidence or personal recollection”.

    Clearly the “stans” (fans) aren’t crazed then huh Trent.

  36. RonaldMatters.com December 20, 2010

    WOW! If Soundz was a [REAL] badd b**** he woulda let them comments stand as they were whether he was in a studio session with THE QUEEN or not. Hell, even as a stan iKnow Beyonce be jippin’ people outta they coins and don’t be really writing her own stuff. But like Soundz said…if Beyonce uses your s*** you gon’ get BOO KOO money and she not gettin’ much as the performer. So, throw the girl a few morsels from the pile!

  37. KD December 20, 2010

    …Oh and the words “smash hit” and “Kelly Rowland” should never ever be put together in one sentence.

  38. carl December 20, 2010

    “I’ve never been in a session with [Beyonce] but I’ve heard rumors, none of which I have evidence or personal recollection”. SO he is going off based off rumors? #BOYBYE acting like u 5>>>>>>>>>>>>

  39. KD December 20, 2010

    This n**** is dumb as hell…how do you bite the hand that feeds you, based on some BS rumors that you heard about?

    Anyway irrespective of this boozo, Nicky (who insists on bringing her stink up in all of B’s posts: go listen to Rihanna or something…damn) and the “rumors” that may be flying around, B will keep on shining like the star she is.

  40. Anonymous December 20, 2010

    Honestly, I don’t blame him. Trent set him up from the jump. He didn’t even conduct a well rounded interview. I still have no idea what songs Soundz has produced besides “Gimme That” and “Skin”. He doesn’t have media training so he had no idea something he said could backfire like that.

    Notice producers who have worked with Beyonce have never explicitly explained how she deals with them. When Ne-Yo said he actually wrote “Irreplaceable” he made sure to say she helped with the melodies.

    This man meant no harm at all. I just hope next time Trent will ask more thoughtful questions rather than opinionated, biased ones.

  41. Anonymous December 20, 2010

    and newsflash to this website, NO ONE CARES about Kelly Rowland! This is the only website that even talks about her. Not saying she can’t sing, but she has no “it” factor.

    Even if her next song is a smash she hasn’t cultivated a solid solo fan base in the U.S., DC3 fans are basically Beyonce fans and they rarely support other female artists. They don’t even play her music in her hometown. I think I heard “Grown Woman” once when she premiered it on the radio and it was never played again.

  42. SparkD December 20, 2010

    THE FAN IN ME: Wants the truth to be revealed in an era of exposure and transparency.

    THE PR FREAK IN ME: Wants to strangle him. He can’t pull a Wikileaks without a mobilized team to back him, hide him, and ride for him after “the man” gets him.

    THE SPARK IN ME: I wouldn’t have revealed the 20% publishing thing, unless unattributed squealing got me something bigger in return for my bank account and for humanity. I would have kept my mouth shut or used a better choice of words.

    THE CYNIC IN ME: Trent and Sam knows the Beyonce and Rihanna posts drive HUGE traffic from stands. Poor Soundz took the bait.

    @ANONYMOUS The Dream came the closest by saying, something like “you work with Beyonce.”

  43. SparkD December 20, 2010

    oopss..typo —> stands = stans

  44. Anonymous December 20, 2010

    Yeah when Matthew sees this it definitely won’t be forgotten now. He already has loose lips so I doubt we will be seeing any Soundz produced songs on Beyonce’s future albums. He probably sent her an apology as well! lol!

    Notice after the “Irreplaceable” debacle, Ne-Yo was no where to be found on IASF. lol!

    You can’t knock Beyonce and Matthew’s hustle at all! They are big business…

  45. MissImpartial December 20, 2010

    He is probably scared being frozen out of the music industry. I believe his first interview !!

  46. SparkD December 20, 2010

    Soundz better start hitting up Silicon Valley, the gaming industry, Asia and other emerging nations in entertainment—-and them come back and do a in-yo-face-Zuckerberg-booya to all of those who froze him out the business.

  47. Anonymous December 20, 2010

    @ SPARKD

    Yep but he didn’t go into detail and he clearly didn’t have a problem with it. “Single Ladies” made enough money for everyone and solidified him as a top notch hitmaker. Thats probably why he will have a record on her next album.

  48. MissImpartial December 20, 2010

    Beyonce, Jay-Z and Father Knowles are SHADY.
    IT WAS RUMORED THAT JAY-Z DEMANDED THAT CHRIS BROWN NOT ATTEND AND DO A MJ TRIBUTE BECAUSE OF THE RIHANNA SITUATION.

  49. Aryo December 20, 2010

    why apology?? he had said the f***** truth!

  50. SparkD December 20, 2010

    @MISSIMPARTIAL The whole world system is shady..few can be wise as serpeants and harmless as doves. People are shady all around—it’s just those with the best publicists and skillful ways to hide their evil and dump bodies get away with it longer. Very few could be in their shoes and be a saint…I say possibly 0.7%.

  51. Anonymous December 20, 2010

    @ MISSIMPARTIAL

    I don’t think they’re any more shady than anyone else at the top of their field in the music industry. Berry Gordy, Diddy, Whitney, and Jennifer Lopez all have/had clout and threw it around…A LOT!

    S***, I think Matthew and Beyonce’s hunger and motivation is what sets them apart from these mediocre artists. They don’t half ass anything!

  52. Phil-Up December 20, 2010

    God knows I love Brandy now, but do you think she and her mother were sweet as pie when she was at the height of her fame? NOT! There were many stories about how Brandy was not as nice as she appeared to be and her mother did not play. With age and being forced to eat some humble pie along the way, she is very likeable now.

  53. Breezythebest December 20, 2010

    Say what your want about Beyonce she is the baddest B****, no other female artist is f****** with her alive or dead!

  54. SparkD December 20, 2010

    @ANONYMOUS You are right! I don’t think Beyonce takes a second of her career for granted. She has truly been protected doing what she loves, on top of that, it’s possibly good she had the “career ex-member glitch” earlier to keep her hungrier.

    BERRY was a tyrant, crook, smart business man. Puffy was a workoholic, crazy, self-centered, business man. Whitney was gifted with vocal Gold, mean and took her queen position for granted. Jennifer Lopez is/was a straight hustler and played the game good or bad.

    You just don’t take for granted what you have. What I do notice about Puffy and Beyonce’s team—they’re egos aren’t so big to be an island. The got the “If you can’t beat them join them ” mentality …so they will jump all over any trend…jack style…jack whatever…trend jump and make it their own. They came in the business at the right time. Their era was on their side.

  55. Music December 20, 2010

    Don’t you think it’s really sad that we only know the truth because a “rookie” in the game has loose lips?
    It’s disgusting the way they (Beyonce’s team & daddy knowles…because we know beyonce does absolutely nothing, she’s a puppet) use their power and their money to solve the problems.
    I’m over beyoncé, she’s FAKE.

  56. John December 20, 2010

    Ok so the other day beyonce got exposed and stans started saying that another artist don´t write either and that stupid stuff. And now that he regrets what he said (not cos he doesn´t believe it now) stans are trying to defend that beyonce writes again? The other day you stans were saying that ‘she doesn´t write so what’ and now she writres again?
    The girl got exposed and that´s it, other songwriters that feature on the credits really contribute to the song (ex: mariah) and those who don´t don´t fake and don´t put their names (whitney, celine) on it. It´s that simple. nobody is saying beyonce is not succesful or can´t sing or anything. We are saying she wants people to think some things about her that are not true

  57. ORLANDOMAC December 20, 2010

    THE POWER OF MATTHEW KNOWLES! MAKES PEOPLE APOLOGIZE THEN SHUT THE F*** UP!

    NOW WATCH THE QUEEN BEY TAKEOVER 2011!

  58. SparkD December 20, 2010

    @PHIL-UP I forgot to mention about the “career” lies of Sonja Norwood and Brandy.

    Sonja was obsessed with having her children become stars. I remember Brandy candidly blasting Foxy Brown in Essence or Ebony back in the day. The played up the Kobe/Brandy publicity game early in his career and so on.

    I truly believe you have to have the hand of God surrounding you for you not become corrupted by the business. I know from corporate, some situations are so complex and corrupted, you either join the team or jump ship.

  59. Blasian December 20, 2010

    Keyword: RUMORED.

    Don’t believe every f****** rumor you hear.

    and how do you know Beyonce, JAyz, and Papa KNowles are shady> Have you worked with them personally? Are you close to somebody who knows them? Or are you just going by hear-say like all Beyonce HATERS do.

    And, Soundz has every bit reason to apoligize being that he has never worked w/ the girl. But if he head actually worked w/ hwe I might’ve gave him the benefit of the doubt.

    @ANON

    Ne-Yo is working w/ Beyonce right now on her new album. So what are you saying?

  61. carl December 20, 2010

    ^ LMFAOOOO that made me laugh out loud.

    Bey stans = DUMB AS HELL LIKE HER.

  63. jasmine December 20, 2010

    Yass you better issue that Beysus apology!!

    I would respect his interview and what he said a little more if he actually WORKED WITH BEYONCE. But he hasn’t, therefore who are we to say what he was saying was true? These haters were getting life off RUMORS. Lmfaoo. I could say that Mariah Carey is the next Milli Vanilli based on what I’ve HEARD (for example. Not saying she is), but I clearly don’t have that evidence to back it up. But since this is Beyonce it just HAS to be true. Smh. #fail

    #DEAD at Beyonce getting more attention on blogs on her OFF SEASON than Ciara and Keri combined. Your favorite could never..

  64. Anthony The Great December 20, 2010

    @John

    He was saying the truth? And you know this because? Oh yeah you’ve worked with Beyonce before.

    I’m pretty sure Beyonce stans already posted this video, but I’ll do so again.

  65. NICK December 20, 2010

    @ANTHONY THE GREAT

    I BELIEVE IT. AND I ALSO BELIEVE BEYONCE AND HER TEAM ARE SHADY. AS YOU ARE PROBABLY A STAN I AM NOT WASTING MY TIME TO DISCUSS THIS WITH YOU. A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW BEE IS COPY CAT HER EARLY DIL DAYS SHE JACKED THE IMAGE OF JLO. DURING THE BDAY ERA WAS SHAKIRA. SHE STOLE SO MANY IDEAS OF HER VIDEOS AND RED CARPET IDEAS FROM COUNTLESS OF OTHER STARS.

    AT LEAST WHILE SHE WAS IN DC SHE WAS ORIGINAL.

  68. BEYONCE 2011 December 20, 2010

    And for that idot that stated that Bey fans wished death threats on him on twitter. I know that you are a Rihanna fan and you fans always wish death threats on eveybodys fav when you want to make your fav look like a winner. So you can just cut the b******* about death threats because you fans are known for saying that and worse.

  69. Andrew December 20, 2010

    @Jazmine

    Beyonce is getting attention yes but for bad reasons. Her fake ways are exposed. Real artists don’t get sued every damn day because they actually write their songs and don’t lie.

    Beyonce + her team + her stans = FAKE to the MAX

    But keep on supporting her, yes dumbass!

  70. beyonce the greatest December 20, 2010

    hey i know its nothing to do with this post but i just have to say keri hilson album is a really good rnb album…..she def shouldnt be slept on its a really good album everyone support her man

  71. MissImpartial December 20, 2010

    THE BEYONCE STANS ALWAYS TRY TO JUSTIFY THERE COMMENTS WITH SAYING DO YOU KNOW HER PERSONALLY AND OTHER. WE DON’T BUT WE ARE NOT DELUDED AS WE HAVE SEEN QUITE LOT OF SITUATIONS WERE HER SONG WRITING ABILITY HAS BEEN QUESTIONED.

  72. LOL December 20, 2010

    Beyonce is not an artist, she yells in her mic stupid songs and shakes her fat ass on stage and that’s about it.

    #RealTalk

  73. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 20, 2010

    Of course he was gonna apologize, he wants and NEEDS to work with Beyonce. He works with the lesser artists right now, so he for damn sure was gonna apologize. DUH!

    He shouldn’t have spoke about something he didn’t know s*** about anyway! How can you go into detail about a situation you’ve never been in. He’s just as credible as these other fools who comment on blogs spewing their dislike for Beyonce by assuming that she’s this and that. He’s no better than the trolls that are naive and believe every single negative rumor.

    And I’m sorry but I just can’t with that psycho calling ANY fan dumb, stupid, or idiotic. Seriously? LOL!

  74. hmm December 20, 2010

    The problem is BLACKS talk too damn much. You expose yourselves, criticize, bash and don’t support your artist in any way. But whites support their artist whether talent or talentless, as you guys call it. You can never see a white producer or blog site exposing Britney Spears, Madonna or even JT. However, a black blog site will expose and bash Beyonce, Rihanna, Chris brown and even Usher just to fulfill their selfish desire of getting hits for their site. And yet you wonder why Black musicians ain’t successful unless they are good with the whites.

  75. quanberg December 20, 2010

    Can’t wait for Kelly to drop on the scene again in 2011 !!!!! He spoke the truth and people are afraid to hear that !!!! Queen B can’t write her own songs fake ass b****, so over rated ne ways !!!!!

  76. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 20, 2010

    @Miss Impartial

    There is justification in saying that you don’t know her personally or that you don’t know what goes on behind the scenes because you haven’t! However, there is no justification in you saying what you say only because of hear-say, no? Like I said, this dude Soundz is just as credible as you because neither you or him has worked with Beyonce.

  77. CRAMPED December 20, 2010

    So, what he said about bey was based on rumours he heard. He should have think b4 he make loose comments on beysus krist

    Speaking about Jay old ass Z I heard that his concert with U2 was a failure. Whe Jay Old man Z came on stage people were walking out and there were lots and lots of empty seats. He was trying to throw up the hand sign and people was not paying him any attention. So you see people every dog has it day. Yea Jay Old man Z is also going broke. So @MISSIMPATIAL what he did to Chris and anybody else is finally coming back to him and all his flunkers.

    She copied J.No’s style?

    Gwarl, Bye. J.No never had a style and many others was rocking that style. But I guess because Beyonce is lightskinned and resembled J.No she was taking her style.

    She Jacked Shakira?

    Her and Shakira worked together on one f****** song and she jacked her style?

    Besides “Beautiful Liar” what has Beyonce done that is Shakira-esque.

    And BTW, Shakira didn’t create belly dancing.

    She stole her music video ideas from others?

    And so does everybody else. And on countless occations Beyonce has stated where she got her inspiration from on a video.

    She stole her Red Carpet ideas?

    So I have the same pair of Levi Jeans as many other people in the world. I guess I stole that idea.

    Oh and I am not a Beyonce stan. A support representative, yes. Everyone knows I stan for Whitney.

    @Andrew

    Lauryn Hill is a “Real Artist” who claimed to the Miseducation all by herself andd got sued by the people who actually did help. And the funny thing is she never even gave credit. Atleast Beyonce gives credit.

    Alicia Keys got songwriting credit for “A Woman’s Worth” even tho the lyrics to the song were written by Erika Rose, why has nobody stumbled on this?? Because the rules ONLY apply to Beyoncé. When it comes to others all of a sudden people know how to use common sense and know that Alicia is credited for playing the piano on the track which is also a songwriting credit.

    While we’re on the Alicia subject, how many times has she jacked melodies and harmonies from the 50s to the 80s without giving credit? A couple of examples, James Brown’s “A Man’s World” = “Fallin”, most infamously Aretha Franklin’s “Ain’t No Way” = “Impossible” [Xtina “Stripped” album]
    This is her taking credit for other people’s work yet her integrity has never been questioned. Beyoncé gets attacked yet any fool with half a braincell that can open a CD booklet and read the credits can see that nobody has went uncredited.

  80. MissImpartial December 20, 2010

    IF THIS GUY WOULD HAVE SAID THOSE COMMENTS TO RIHANNA THE BEYONCE STANS WOULD BE PRAISING HIM AND DENOUNCING RIHANNA. THEY WOULD HAVE QUOTED WHAT HE SAID IN EVERY POST. BUT BECAUSE IT IS THEIR PRECIOUS BEYONCE IT IS NOT TRUE!!!
    BEYONCE STANS ARE HIPPOCRATIC.

  81. True Blue December 20, 2010

    @ Miss Impartial:

    ROFL, you should really consider changing your name, because you are about as impartial as FOX News (or Faux News, as I call ’em) is “fair & balanced”. Now Beyonce ripped off J.Lo and Shakira? LOL, typical hater.

  82. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 20, 2010

    PREACH @Anthony The Great! PREACH!

  83. royalkev December 20, 2010

    Why is this dude apologizing? This is even worst. It’s obvious that he truly feels the way he do (in his first interview). All he did now was confirm how foolish his assumptions were since it wasn’t based on his own personal experiences with Beyonce! Now without any doubt he has proven that his initial comments don’t carry any weight at all. he just spreaded a rumor!

  84. Sokiuia December 20, 2010

    Anthony the great, you don’t make sense and leave the real artists like Alicia and Lauryn alone. Don’t make s*** just to TRY to hide the truth about Beyoncé.

  85. dakkylove December 20, 2010

    this whole situation is sad…soundz is extremely immature , he should have been more tactical with his answers however i dont think he meant any harm …hey at least he got PR even if its not entirely negative but moving forward he should be careful wit his utterances but for Sam/Trent they just shot their blog into the limelight, it is a win win situation for them and they did not twist anybody’s words..i love this site.

  86. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 20, 2010

    @Miss Impartial

    Please don’t put all Beyonce fans/stans into one category. (I’m a fan, NOT a stan BTW). And there have been a few instances where a video director has said something to the effect that Rihanna is involved in the creative process of her videos, which I said nothing about. Mainly because, she has great fashion sense and probably is involved in some way with the visuals of a video. Her fashion is the one thing I like and respect about her. So you were saying?

  87. MissImpartial December 20, 2010

    @ANTHONY THE GREAT

    EVER WATCHED THE VIDEO RING THE ALARM THAT VIDEO AND THE VIDEO ME MYSELF AND I ARE COMPLETE RIP OFFS OF SHAKIRAS SPANISH VIDEOS. NEVER MIND THE VMA PERFORMANCE OF WHICH WAS BRIT RIP OFF.
    AND THE BET DEJA VU PERFORMANCE WAS INSPIRED BY A OLD SHAKIRA PERFORMANCE.
    JLO WAS THE BIGGEST STYLE ICON AND THERE WAS EVEN AN ARTICLE IN ONE MAGAZINE SHOWING EACH AND EVERY OUT FIT THAT BEE STOLE OF BEYONCE. MOST RECENT IN THE DIVA VIDEO YOU CAN SEE HER WEARING THE MERMAID OUTFIT GUESS WHO WORE IT FIRST.
    GO WATCH YOU TUBE AND TYPE BEYONCE COPPYCAT AND SCHOOL YOURSELF.

    BUT I KNOW THE STAN YOU ARE YOU WILL HAVE PERFECT JUSTIFICATION FOR IT!!

  88. carl December 20, 2010

    What I would like to know is HOW has Bey stolen songrwriting credits when other songwriters are listed in the songs?

  89. RiriFan03 December 20, 2010

    Bye beyonce!

    I like your gravatar. I see Kanye’s first, and I think I see Bran Bran in there, who else?

  91. True Blue December 20, 2010

    @ Anthony The Great:

    Don’t forget Led Zeppelin blatantly stealing and sampling old blues songs without crediting the original authors until they got taken to court for it. Sure hasn’t hurt their musical legacy, has it?

    @ Miss Impartial:

    It’s “hypocritical”, idiot.

  92. RiriFan03 December 20, 2010

    @ MissImpartial

    You forgot how beyonce ripped off Janet in Ring the alarm’s choreography at the VMA’s 06

  93. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 20, 2010

    I don’t get how Beyonce has stolen or steals from J.LO? If this were so, then why isn’t J.LO still relevant? How did the ‘stolen material’ work for Beyonce and not J.LO? LOL!

  94. Blasian December 20, 2010

    MissImpartial

    Did Michael Jackson steal the Moonwalk?

  95. MissImpartial December 20, 2010

    @TRUE BLUE

    HOW AM I NOT IMPARTIAL AS I HAVE GIVEN BEYONCE CREDIT.

    I SAID THAT SHE IS THE BEST LIVE PERFORMER CURRENTLY AND I ALSO SAID THAT SHE HAS A GREAT VOICE. I LIKED HER IN DC AND THAT I THOUGHT THAT HER BEYONCE EXPERIENCE WAS GREAT.
    BUT I ALSO AGREE THAT SHE IS A COPY CAT THAT SHE JACKS PERFORMANCES AND VIDEOS AND THAT HER SONG WRITING SKILLS ARE QUESTIONABLE.

  96. GangsterA December 20, 2010

    yes soundz bow bow bow until you drop on youre kness #BEYONCE4PRESIDENT you never f*** with #BEEHIVE and run with it *high five guys* and he knew what he was saying *in bey voice* DON’T GIVE ME THAT INNOCENT B******* he thought it will be cute to come at her and then BAM CLAP SLAP AND ATTACK

  97. ama December 20, 2010

    If he can’t handle an interview with a messy blog site, he definitely ain’t ready for the big leagues. People want Bey to use “new people” and this is exactly why she doesn’t. These fools can’t be trusted and don’t deserve to be in the Queens presence.

  98. ama December 20, 2010

    and He’s an idiot for speaking on a subject he has no firsthand knowledge of. He stated it as fact, not as “I heard…”. Nothing was taken out of context, he said it.

  99. True Blue December 20, 2010

    @ Miss Impartial:

    The BET performance (and video) of Deja Vu was inspired by Josephine Baker. #FAIL.

    And as for your other claims, they’re b******* as well. Provide your proof for them.

  100. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 20, 2010

    Thank you @True Blue!

    People forget that Elvis took alot of s*** from African-American singers and dancers.

    People forget that Madonna is the most sued artist for copyright infringement.

    People forget that MJ seen some kids do the moonwalk on the streets in the hood and made that his trademark.

    People forget that MOST of MJ’s dances were James Brown inspired.

  101. Prince December 20, 2010

    Lol i knew da Beyonce stans was goin let his ass have it lol. We dont play when it comes 2 our Queen Bey

  102. RiriFan03 December 20, 2010

    @ AMA

    These “fools” tell the truth and expose your fake h** and that’s why you’re mad 🙂

  103. Anthony The Great December 20, 2010

    @MISSIMPARTIAL

    Actually “Ring The Alarm” was inspired by some movie which I forget.

    And

    How is Me Myself and I a copy of Shakira video.

    Which performance did Beyonce rip off for Deja Vu.

    And like I said everyone from Ashanti to Mya was rockin that style that J.No was rocking back in the day. Everyone just said that Beyonce was jacking her style because she resembled her.

    And

    So what if Beyonce had the same dress as J.Lo. She probably saw the dress and liked how it looked. I and many others do the same thing all the time.

    And why would I waste my time youtubing a video that was made by some Beyonce hater with no life for other people with no lives to watch.

  104. MissImpartial December 20, 2010

    @AMAZING.LEE

    IT DID WORK AS SHE WAS HUGE FROM 1999-2005. LOL !! J.LO HAD A CAREER BACK THEN REMEMBER.

  105. MissImpartial December 20, 2010

    @TRUE BLUE

    THE JOSHEPHINE BAKER INSPIRED PERFORMANCE WAS DURING THE FASHION ROCK PERFORMANCE. AS BEYONCE FAN YOU SHOULD KNOW.

  106. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 20, 2010

    LOL! @Blasian you beat me to the punch!

    I mean it’s crazy, no one EVER says anything about MJ not “creating” the moonwalk. He’s always said how it got inspired by it, but did those kids get money every time MJ did the moonwalk, Um NO! MJ made the moonwalk his trademark and there’s absolutely NOTHING wrong with that!

  107. RiriFan03 December 20, 2010

    @Anthony

    RIng The Alarm video was inspired by the movie “Basic Instinct”. You’re not a good stan lol

    The VMA performance was a copycat of Janet’s choreography style. Once again, she ripped off 🙂

  108. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 20, 2010

    @Miss Impartial

    EXACTLY! It’s 2010 so my point is where is she now? Shouldn’t she be just as relevant as Beyonce, since Beyonce stole SOOOO much from her?

  109. Anthony The Great December 20, 2010

    @RIRIFAN

    How did Beyonce rip off Janet’s choreography?

    Besides the whole robotic movement(which many artist have done after Janet) the choreography was totally different. Beyonce actually got that choreography from the dancers from the Destiny Fulfilled tour which Frank Gatson(A person who has worked w/ the likes of MJ and JJ) choreographed that dance.

  110. royalkev December 20, 2010

    @ Amazing Lee, Yea I got ‘Ye in there first(my fav rapper) – Then it’s everyone squished in together: Bey(with the tats), Brandy, Janet and Whitney. If I could I’d fit Breezy in, but I had to draw the line somewhere.

  111. RiriFan03 December 20, 2010

    AmazingLee you’re so naive..

  112. True Blue December 20, 2010

    @ Miss Equivalent of Faux News:

    All your claims of her “swagger-jacking” and supposed song theft are completely without merit. Like @Carl correctly pointed out, how can she steal credit when everyone who writes the song is properly credited? No one is left out? She gets credit for contributing, WHICH IS NO DIFFERENT THAN ANY OTHER ARTIST. No one has claimed that she is a songwriter, we give her props as a singer and performer, NOT A SONGWRITER.

  113. Mike December 20, 2010

    YALL SHOULD JUST ASK FRANK GATSON FOR COMMENT. HE SEEMS TO KNOW WHAT IS REAL AND NOT REAL…

  114. MissImpartial December 20, 2010

    OK WE ARE NEVER GOING TO AGREE OR COME TO ONE CONCLUSION.

    I SAY BEYONCE IS TALENT/FRAUD
    YOU SAY BEYONCE A SHINING BEACON OF INNOCENCE!!

    AND BY THE WAY THE EASY WAY YOU ACCUSE OTHER STARS OF STEALING AND COPYING HOW IS SO DIFFICULT FOR YOU TO BELIEVE IT BEYONCE.

  115. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 20, 2010

    @RiRiFan03

    How am I naive? Because I don’t believe the same ish you believe? Because we have different opinions? GIRL BYE!

  116. Anthony The Great December 20, 2010

    @MISSIMPARTIAL

    Nobody is accusing others of stealing. We are justr calling out other artist as examples because the rule of stealing seems to only apply to Beyonce. And everyone else gets a pass.

  117. RiriFan03 December 20, 2010

    Who is Frank Gatson?

  118. GangsterA December 20, 2010

    Btw ne-yo did work wit her on i am sasha fierce ”shaffer smith worked with knowles on a track called waiting he also wrote a song with stargate members tor erik hermansen and mikkel s. Eriksen for knowles third studio album”

  119. MissImpartial December 20, 2010

    @TRUE BLUE

    THEN WHY ARE YOU DISCUSSING WITH ME AS I AM DISPUTING THE FACT THAT SHE IS NO SONGWRITER. DO YOU READ PEOPLE POST OR JUST ATTACK THEM.

  120. Beyoncé: The Queen of Pop & Soul December 20, 2010

    Well, I blame more THIS BLOG for all of this than anything that Soundz said or did. I posted all of those articles from producers and mixed who HAVE worked with Beyoncé to show what she does. Trent and Sam love to fuel the “Beyoncé don’t write, she just steals publishing from ‘hungry, starving producers'” when in fact, the only song that Soundz worked with her on, Bey has no publishing credits on. It made no sense in that context to even go there. But this is a gossip blog, so things like this comes with the territory.

    And those who are upset for him backtracking because you want Bey “exposed”, take stan-wars out of this for a minute, there was no context for a topic like that to go on. I would say this if it was Rihanna or Ciara or Keri or Ameriie or Jennifer Hudson and etc.

  121. RiriFan03 December 20, 2010

    @Amazing Lee

    I’m saying you’re naive because if you knew more about the industry in the backstage, you’d know that A LOT of artists who achieved superstardom were not angels and lied. Trust me. For example, Clive Davis was an evil just like Matthew Knowles is now.

  122. Hey Ho! December 20, 2010

    WOW!!!! I cannot believe these idiots are soooo quick and desperate to use RUMORS as if it is fact LMAO!!!!!!

    Definition of RUMOR: talk or opinion widely disseminated with no discernible source

    There haters, u learned something today 😆 no need to thank me

  123. True Blue December 20, 2010

    @ Amazing.Lee:

    MJ wasn’t even the first major artist to incorporate the moonwalk into his act. You can go on YouTube and see David Bowie doing it on one of his tours in the 70s.

    Oh and another thing: Coldplay and Joe Satriani. ‘Nuff said.

  124. TMM09 December 20, 2010

    We should put all beyonce stans in a mental institution the size of an ocean. Under water bases anyone?

  125. Nichole December 20, 2010

    @ John,

    You know Bey stans are gonna contract what the previously said.

    In the actual interview, a majority of them admitted that Bey doesn’t write and now that Soundz issued a supposed “apology,” it is a whole different ball game.

    And when Soundz said Bey doesn’t write, he did mention how Keri Hilson wrote her lines in a remix to one of Usher’s songs and I think that is the reason why he said she’s not a songwriter. Songwriters don’t have other artists writing their lyrics for them, and if Beyonce was a songwriter, she would have contributed her own s*** instead of Keri.

    Soundz doesn’t have to work with Beyonce to say she’s not a songwriter, because the truth was already exposed about her ass even before Soundz opened his mouth.

    Just look at how much of a dumb-ass she looked with songs like Listen, and Irreplaceable. She took credit for a song she didn’t write, and Ne-Yo had to clean her s*** up, and, of course, he was being nice when he said she wrote the melodies or some s***. Hell. She probably didn’t even do that, and it is apparent that people who work with Beyonce better keep their mouths shut or else.

    A corrupt fraud is what she is.

  126. Anthony The Great December 20, 2010

    @RIRIFAN

    You obiviously don’t know much about the music industry since you don’t know who Frank Gatson is.

    And your a Rihanna stan, so would you also agree that Larry Reid is also a cheating manipulative money hungry savage?

  127. REASONABLE VOICE December 20, 2010

    Of course I expected the one psychotic Rihanna stan known as Nicky to pop up here with his retarded all caps rant, comparing rihanna and beyonce once again. All I can say is, im with the Bey stans on this one! He’s never EVER worked with Beyonce, so you don’t go off rumors. But I disgress….

  128. Nothing December 20, 2010

    @ Nichole

    Preach girl!

  129. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 20, 2010

    @Miss Impartial

    No one is saying she is the “Shining Beacon of Innocence”! Please!

    And the reason I said that about Elvis is because he doesn’t get as near as much crap as Beyonce gets, and it was CLEAR that Elvis took nearly everything he did from African-Americans. And Madonna gets sued for Copyright Infringement but she’s considered as creative and original by MOST, even me, but she, just as other artists, don’t get as much flack as Beyonce.

    MJ has continually said how he was inspired by those kids doing the moonwalk and how he was inspired by James Brown. Beyonce does the same, but she gets accused as being a fraud/thief.

    So I’ve never said that Beyonce isn’t inspired by others, my point was she gets ridiculed for it the most, when other artists of a higher caliber don’t. Get it?………Probably not.

  130. Hey Ho! December 20, 2010

    And u mean to tell me this n**** has NEVER worked with Beyonce?!?

    B**** Bye

    While u dumbasses keep going back and forth, the bish is still a superstar and making her money. 85 milli in one year to be exact

    POINTLESS

  131. Phil-Up December 20, 2010

    @ Anthony The Great

    I’m sure she is working with him but will his songs make the album? Ne-Yo hasn’t written a good song since Irreplaceable and Take a Bow in my opinion. I cosign all your posts though. I’m sure Beyonce knows all this comes with the territory, when you’re at the top it’s easy for people to take shots. Now do I believe she’s a writer? NO! The point is whether she writes or not should not be as big of an issue as it is.

    @ HMMM

    You have a point there. You never hear this talk about white artists.

  132. Anthony The Great December 20, 2010

    @Nichole

    Ne-Yo stated that Beyonce had did the melodies and arrangements the same time he said he wrote all the lyrics. He didn’t back track, but the haters being the normal insufficient people they are just ran with one part. Then when confronted with his whole quote you all said he said it AFTERWARDS when in reality it was at the same time.

  133. Nichole December 20, 2010

    “You know Bey stans are gonna contract”

    *retract

    Damn. It’s 8:25 in the morning, and I’m already fvvkin up.

  134. royalkev December 20, 2010

    People are always pointing out who Bey has copied her themes and style from. She gets no credit for being artistic at all. She references what she’s inspired by with her concepts that has outside influences, more than most artist I’ve ever seen.

    You never see Britney admitting to her whole career following Janet’s blue print.
    Jlo, Mya and Ciara as well.
    Why wasn’t it a big deal when Gaga’s Alejandro mirrored Madonna themes with the crosses.
    No one speaks of Madonna taking from Kylie.
    Trey from Usher. Can’t be friends remind me of Confessions.
    Usher from MJ.
    Neyo from MJ with, everything!
    It’s always Bey,Bey, Bey!

    Your attempt to educate these fools is a good cause and i commend you but dont waste ur time, they are rather slow…

  137. Beyoncé: The Queen of Pop & Soul December 20, 2010

    And this is how objective I am, and you can see my handle so you all know I am a Beyoncé fan/”stan”, one of the things that I was upset with this album for Rihanna is that she don’t have ANY publishing credit for Loud. Especially after having publishing credit for Rated R, which I was pleased with her for having them because she was cutting her teeth in having imput in her work whether it was miminal or substanstial.

    To be truthful, I feel every artist/entertainer should get a percentage of publishing off their songs since they are the artists. Especially being that albums don’t sell like it used to, singles are where it is at ultimately because those songs will be played for years to come if they are big hits. Those who have publishing credits on those songs will be making money off artists/entertainers even AFTER THEY DIE. That’s not fair either. That’s why you have entertainers who know the game adding a word or two getting publishing credit because they know that in the ultimate scheme of things, labels make much more money off the labels than the artists will ever see in their lifetime.

  138. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 20, 2010

    @RiRiFAN03

    I’ve never denied that their is shadiness in the music industry! When did I EVER say that? I know their are shady people in the music industry just as there are shady people in EVERY industry! I agree Clive, Diddy, Berry Gordy, Suge Knight (of course), etc were all shady in some way, THAT’S THE BUSINESS!

    @True Blue

    EXACTLY! But people only know of Beyonce’s so-called dishonesty. Smh.

  139. USS December 20, 2010

    No, Trent…Beyonce’s so-called “crazed fans” did not make him do anything. You’re a shitty journalist who was fishing for shady statements to put into your little crappy interview. Get a life, b****.

  140. MissImpartial December 20, 2010

    @AMAZING LEE

    HOW CAN YOU COMPARE MJ TO BEYONCE. OK LET SAY THAT HE TOOK THE MOON WALK OF SOME RANDOM KIDS. BUT AT LEAST HIS MUSIC WAS ORIGINAL AND HIS PERFORMANCES. HIS VISUALS AND DANCING STILL INSPIRE PEOPLE LIKE BEYONCE, CHRIS BROWN, JUSTIN, AND USHER ECT. WHERE AS BEYONCE’S WORK IS 99% INSPIRED BY OTHER PEOPLE. MJ HAD A LOT OF ORIGINALITY AND HIS MUSIC IS STILL THE FULL OF QUALITY.

  141. Anthony The Great December 20, 2010

    @Nichole said, ” Songwriters don’t have other artists writing their lyrics for them, and if Beyonce was a songwriter, she would have contributed her own s*** instead of Keri.”

    Mariah is a real songwriter as most say, but she has had people write songs for her without changing anything. Does that discredit her as a writer? No.

    Beyonce has stated herself that she works with other songwriters and producers so she can grow and not have everything sounding like Dangerously in Love.

  142. True Blue December 20, 2010

    @ Miss Impartial:
    I never disputed that she isn’t a songwriter, what I am disputing is that she gets songwriting credits through fraudulent means, which isn’t true. Don’t lump all Bey fans in one category, I have never argued that she is a songwriter.

    Actually the song was already done BEFORE they even decided to put Beyonce on. It wasn’t until after they had written and recorded it with Keri as the feature that they asked for Beyonce instead of Keri.

  145. Beyoncé: The Queen of Pop & Soul December 20, 2010

    True_Blue posted a great article about publishing when this topic for came about, I think it is great that Bono and Chris Martin allow their band-members to get publishing credit whether they contribute to the composition of a song or not. People don’t understand how entertainers get played by labels all the time.

    Don’t people remember Toni Braxton? She said that he got paid only pennies off of every album sold. That’s ridiculous. An entertainer can be the face of the album era, the one who brings the fans to buy albums and sales but they get nothing from that unless they have successful tours which most of the time it is to paid off the things that labels do to market and promote them anyways. Pathetic.

  146. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 20, 2010

    @Miss Impartial

    I’m not comparing MJ and Beyonce. However, I am stating that MJ was inspired by ALOT during his career but he doesn’t get any BS about him being a fraud because of it. What he’s most famous for (dancing) was inspired by others, but he was so great at it that it doesn’t even matter. The same can be said about any artist that is inspired by others!

    You’re trying to change the original topic to MJ being original and who he’s inspired which I already know. And if you think %99 of what Beyonce does is inspired by others, then the same can be said about EVERY other artist in this generation. Nearly EVERY single thing has been done already, just evolved.

  147. H-Town December 20, 2010

    This just goes to show, Beyonce has the most loyal fans other than M.J.

    You pop off about M.J. you’re going DOWN! I see why other artists and producers avoid Beyonce questions and comparisons because that’s really the only way they can win if they don’t like her.

    I agree with Queen of Pop Soul it really is a brilliant strategy. She’s not getting paid chump off albums and she will always make money off her material.

  148. f*ck a 5head December 20, 2010

    Wait, a Rih-S**** fan calling someone else’s fans fanatical?

    Isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black?

    Anyway, he said nothing that was untoward. I read the article and as a fan of Honey Bey’s didn’t get offended.

    Be a fan and appreciate your fav but pls hold the crazy along with the onions. THX!

  149. Beyoncé: The Queen of Pop & Soul December 20, 2010

    @Amazing_lee

    Do you see how people are trying to justify things their viewpoint of Bey even if all of the evidence is contrary to their viewpoint? I mean, it has been rashed over and over again that Bey’s “lane” or the bulk of her contribution is arrangements and re-arrangements.

    When the video that was made giving clarification on Bey’s contributions to the compositions of her songs, someone made a good point using Halo as a reference that I hope some people who have an open-minded are willing to see: I don’t think Beyonce gets enough credit for her specific songwriting talent – rearranging. (In that way, she follows Madonna’s lead – eat that Sats and MissTina!) Take Halo, for example – the demo version has this terrible, oddly placed and emotionally flat middle 8 – it just doesn’t work. What Beyonce did, very wisely, is take that awful middle 8 out and let only her voice’s echo fill the gap. THAT – the break before she comes back – is what gives the song its emotional wallop. She may not be a Lily or Amy or Gaga, being able to write both lyric and music – but she’s damn sure better than the rest of her peers, who are either terrible, TERRIBLE lyricists (try listening to Back to Basics and not cringing REPEATEDLY) or, you know, not at all involved in any aspect. (fill in the blanks …)

    The poster is not even a fan but even he can see what Bey brings to the table. And you can post it over and over again, but this is a gossip blog and since this kind of thing fuels stanwars, they are going to ignore it.

    Soundz you don’t have to apologize for nothing. Beyonce has been hit by several copyright fringements for years regarding her songwriting on songs like If I Were a Boy, Smash Into You, Upgrade U, Naughty Girl and Irreplaceable, just to name a few. If she really wrote her songs, then wouldn’t be a need to even bring her songwriting credits

  151. Beyonce Owns Your Fav December 20, 2010

    THE HARDCORE HATER

    — You go through all the trouble of registereing on a message board, and you have more posts than most hardcore stans, the only difference is you don’t seem to like Beyonce that much.

    — You spend your spare time looking for some video, photo, or comment that makes Beyonce look like a damn fool.

    — You always have a sideways comment, no matter what the topic.

    — You will not waste an opportunity to criticize Beyonce’s talent, wardrobe, personality, hair, etc. Anything anybody posts about Beyonce you make it a point to be a negative asshole. It doesn’t even have to be about Beyonce and you will go out of your way to post something negative about Beyonce.

    EXAMPLE:

    Me: Do you think Obama will improve our economy?

    You: I don’t know. I can’t stand Beyonce.

    Me: What does that have to do with what I just asked you?

    You: I don’t know, she overrated.

    Why you do what you do: You’re trying to prove a point to Beyonce fans that she’s not as hot as they think she is, however that’s like going to a club that you think is wack just to tell the people there that you think the club is wack. Doesn’t it make more sense to let them enjoy the club and you go to a club that you don’t think is wack?

    Why you’re funny to me: WHY THE F*** ARE YOU ON ANYTHING BEYONCE RELATED? I MEAN… REALLY? IT’S SAD…

    @ Nick Ho gewrl… why are u CONSTANTLY flooding each and every Bey post with your negative energy!? Bey loves u and u should just accept it and move on… go an listen to a Britney album.

  154. Jamie December 20, 2010

    It’s your fault Trent. Sometimes it’s best to tell some, keep some, and you’ll always have some. If I were Soundz, I would never give you another interview. You talk too much, and you’re an opportunist which is why Beyonce or any other RELEVANT artists would never give you an interview. I betcha Kelly won’t give you another one either. Always trying to get an exclusive. If you do some REAL research, you’d find that ‘Make Believe’ is NOT Kelly’s first single.

  155. True Blue December 20, 2010

    @ Beyonce: Queen of Pop and Soul (I am calling you BQOPAS, cause typing on a phone is difficult enough as it is):

    I agree that artists get financially screwed over by their labels. Hell, copyright law was established in the first place because people who CREATED their works got nothing in return. Even if the artist does not write their own songs, that does not mean that they should be deprived a portion of the pie as well. And if you’re in a band, I’m sorry, but even if you’re the only one writing all the songs, you should always share the credits and royalties with your bandmates. Being in a band means you’re a TEAM. Therefore, you should act as one.

  156. Beyoncé: The Queen of Pop & Soul December 20, 2010

    @H_Town

    Exactly(She’s not getting paid chump off albums and she will always make money off her material.). People can talk about “artistic integrity” all day long, but the lack of integrity is on THE LABELS(specifically the label executives) who will do whatever to make sure that they make their money. Why do you think Prince wrote slave on his forehead so many years ago?

    I am ALWAYS on the side of the entertainers when it comes to issues like this. As I always say, this is bigger than defending a specific entertainer because you’re a fan of them. Or dissing them because you don’t like them.

  157. mzoutrageous December 20, 2010

    I am a huge beyonce fan but what’s the point of backtracking. Speak your mind. And for all you ppl losing your minds about beyonce stans, why don’t you do something productive with your life instead of finding every opportunity to bash beyonce and her fans. Bunch of HATERS. At least Mrs. Carter has talent unlike some of these people, ESPECIALLY Rihanna’s goat sounding behind. Get over yourselves people.

  158. Beyonce Owns Your Fav. December 20, 2010

    @NICHOLE, MISSIMPARATIAL, NICK, ANDREW, JOHN, ETC.

    Let’s talk about that fake-ass, white-ass, trick-ass, phony-ass Beyonce. Granted I’ve never met Beyonce, and everyone I know who knows Beyonce says she’s a nice lady, but I don’t believe them. I can tell she’s stuck up and phony. Mainly because she reminds me of the girls I went to high school with. The ones who were prettier than me, more popular than me, and more talented than me. The ones I was always afraid to talk to. She’s not as hot as her stans think she is. I know this because I have 3 accounts on Beyonceworld. I’m not a member because I like her, I just go for exclusive news, I really don’t care about her, but my loyal readers seem to care about her so I post about her 9 times a week, and if there’s nothing to report I make s*** up. Her concert was wack too. I went and saw her in Atlanta and hated it. I hated it so much I bought tickets to see her again in Miami, just to make sure I hated it, then I bought tickets to see her twice in New York, just to be extra sure that I hated the show. She’s HIGHLY overrated. She’s not a real singer, and by real I mean brown-skinned and slightly overweight.

    NP: (I am calling you BQOPAS, cause typing on a phone is difficult enough as it is). LOL.

    Back on topic: Precisely. The question is regulating something like that because as we know, greed comes to the picture. You also have people who will say, “You’re doing all of the ‘creating’, but they are getting publishing too. Why are you letting them do this?” but since you mentioned the band analogy, someone is playing instruments with you, someone is doing background singing with you. That’s why one of the things I DID side with Toya and Tavia on when the whole Say My Name controversy happen, I am like, “Give them their credit”, they are part of the group, don’t leave them out there like that just because you have beef with them. I don’t agree with much of what they did when the whole DC split went down but I agreed with them on this.

    Taylor Swift is alright. I am not a true fan of Country but I can understand why she has fans. And she makes her fan base feels that they know and can relate to her. She could work on her pitch accuracy(almost singers can) and I don’t like her timbre so much, but I don’t like a lot of country singer’s timbre which is why I am a big fan of the genre.

    still people don´t get it:
    – Is Beyonce a very good singer and great entertainer??? Yes
    – Is she the most or one of the most relevant artists of the last years? Yes
    – Has Beyonce lied or pretended in public or her management that she is involved in the creating music proccess?? HELL YES
    That´s the point, and it doesn´t matter if MJ, Mariah or The Beatles have been sued once in a while, cos they are still songwriters. Bey is not a songwriter at all but she has pretended many times. Hell I´m not a hater, I like a few songs by her. What enfuriated me is that I believed she was a musician myself, from wich I´ve always heard and read in articles and reviews from musical magazines. Now I know her team wanted to create that image for her, but it´s definitely untrue. Once again, Celine, Whiney, Rihanna (untalented I know) nor their teams have tried to create such image. Do u get it now??
    And for the record: given the fact all the music is provided to her, at least her records should contain some timeless music like some of Dion´s and Houston´s records. That if she wants to be considered anything similar to the greatest.
    (Wait, who am I kidding? she will never be Mariah, Whitney or Michael.
    I´m just a fan of great artists (music and vocals) or amazing vocalists who who are not fake (not that she is amazing as a vocalist either). NEXT

    @Anthony the Great,

    You did have a point making a note of all the other Artist who have jacked credits, but the thing is that Beyonce does it to every song that is on the album. As well as Destinys child as a whole. I know I say this with this big “TEAM KELLY” name, but the truth is that these song writters are paid off and then not even given writters creds. I know this because I do write and sale lyrics. The names that actually go on the album are the names of the people that were actually present at the time of recording who assist in the removing and adjusting of lyrics and melodies. The writters of the songs have already been paid for the actual lyrics. SO basically you sold your right to complain.

  205. TATA December 20, 2010

    THEREALNICKY
    but come’on sweets,it’s not like Beyonce doesn’t have 5 number 1’s with 3 albums 🙂 Rihanna has 9 with 5 albums…see where im going at? im basically saying that this is gonna be an easy feet for Beyonce,she can manage at least 2 number 1’s from an album! so multiply that twice and what does that add up to? 4 then +her current 5 chart toppers(hope i didn’t confuse u with all the mathsy stuff) not my intention at all boo 🙂 but get this,im loving LOUD,but it’s just not selling,it debuted at number 6 or something in the states,this girl doesn’t have a number 1 album yet after 5 efforts 🙁 but oh well,her tracks are really good so she has to that to boot i guess. again,if it’s not on billboard or sound scan,then u can try again later. like i said,i need a valid citation 🙂 it’s one thing to love yo fav artist,but to lie about their success,now honey that’s extreme! dang!

    I like Beyonce, but I’m not going to sit here and lie about her writing her own songs just to make myself feel better. Soundz spilt the tea and you stans couldn’t handle it. Ya girl pays for her credits like she pays for her awards ect.

  211. the kiddz December 20, 2010

    I find it funny that all the producers that have worked with Beyonce, have talked about her contributions to the project; mainly her VOCAL ARRANGEMENTS. Beyonce is not a big lyric writer, we know that and she knows it and has readily repeated it.

    “I don’t play any instrument, I have writers that I write with, or I have writers that will send me a full song, and I’ll rearrange it – change the second verse, change the melody, keep a chord that I like, and recreate it. Just depends. I might bring in whoever I think can help the song. When I have just a beat it’s the most fun for me. I’ll get somebody to play whatever I hum for the bassline. So I’m creating a whole track with my voice.”

    At the end of the day, the industry needs Beyonce. The end.

    Nicky is so confused by all the numbers and letters in the above information, that he’s accusing me of not knowing what WW is. LMAO!!! R******!

    In case you havent understand this are the numbers we’re working with (LOL): 633,000 + 359,000 + 247,000 + 259,000 + 381,000 + 372,000 + 150,000 = 2,401,000 M WW (or there about)

    7 numbers, 7 weeks WW.

    @John

    No one is saying that Beyonce writes by herself, but what we are saying is that she doesn’t put her name on songs fraudulantly or steal the credits.

    Beyonce in someway has a part of every song she records in someway whether she is arranging, changing a note, a word, or the melody. She is an artist, because of the fact that she is always apart of the creative process and has a vision of what she wants to do.

    Beyonce has been sued a lot, but not for song writing.

    She was sued for “Cater 2 U”, but we never really heard the other song in which she alledgly copied so we don’t know for sure.

    For “Booyylicious” she was only sued because she didn’t give Furasi production credit. But that only goes to show Beyonce does give credit, because she gave the production credit to Stevie Knicks the owner of the guitar riff. Furasi just wanted the credit because he suggested the guitar, but didn’t tweek it or anything to get credit.

    For the whole Des’ree thing. That song was supposed to be on beyonce’s album, but Beyonce had put it on her album before they reached a final agreement.

    For “If I were a Boy”. BC Jean had sold the song to TOby Gad therefore he had the authority to give it to ever he please. And before the song was even released she talked about how Gad had wrote her a beautiful song and he wasn’t sure if she would like it. He played it for her and she said she fell in love with it and recorded it. BTW, she is not credited as a writer on that song either.

    I’m not sure but I believe those are the onyl 4 times that she has been sued for music. There maybe 2 more cases, but i’m not sure.

    @Gucci

    How is Soundz telling the truth when he admitted that he based his answers on rumors and not FACTUAL evidence? Nor you or him know the “truth”

    And LOL @ she buys her awards! If Beyonce bought all the awards you people claim she did, she wouldn’t have made over 80 million dollars now would she? LOL! BTW: how much did those awards cost, since you know she bought them, you should KNOW how much they cost, right? LOL!

  220. Lolita December 20, 2010

    @ANthony

    someone asked for it, here it its, plain & simple

  221. Anthony The Great December 20, 2010

    And for Beyonce saying she gets her inspiration for a song from life experiences makes since because she did write on Survivor and DIL and those were based on her life experiences.

    And even now she tells the writers that she works with what kind of songs she wants written for.

  222. Lolita December 20, 2010

    But i understand it must be hard to accept the truth when you probably been stanning for her for years.

  223. TATA December 20, 2010

    ANTHONY THE GREAT
    cater 2 u?? really? they sued Beyonce there? but all the girls are credited as song writers for that song so i really dont understand sweets 🙂 some producer did sue DC-3 as a whole and Matthew Knowles for that song,not just Beyonce. wow guys….seriously? just to prove a point u gonna start lying on people?

  224. queenb December 20, 2010

    lol that’s funny….sam no one cares about Kelly Rowland she had her chance and screwed up, when Miss Knowles-Carter comes out who will remember Kelly Rowland???kelly who?

  225. Anthony The Great December 20, 2010

    @TATA

    I know all of DC got sued, I was trying to make a point that Beyonce hasn’t been sued as much for music as people say she has. She has only been sued 4 or so times for music. Maybe you should’ve read my whole comment.

  226. Anthony The Great December 20, 2010

    @Lolita

    Truth is that the BS you are spewing has been debunked many times with SOLID FACTS.

    Truth is that you are a self hating pig who gets esteem from hating on Beyonce.

    Truth is you are a nobody.

    Truth is people with lives don’t waste precious time on people they hate.

    In the words of Mona Samone

    @ANTHONY THE GREAT
    sorry,i take back my comment,i went and read it now….sorry,it’s just that there’s a lotta people here trynna act as if they will be with Beyonce when she’s stealing those songs from all those writers,i mean why would they have awarded her the Pop Songwriter of the Year award at the 2001 American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers Pop Music Awards, becoming the first African-American female and second female songwriter of all time to accomplish the feat. i mean i just don’t appreciate people that act like they know when they obviously dont!! i believe in not judging a person until u actually find out on yo own!!

  228. LDJ_BEY December 20, 2010

    LOL these rihanna fans are so delusional and hilarious. WATCH NICKY DISAPPEAR AGAIN WHEN RIHANNA STALLS AT 3 MILLION WORLDWIDE LIKE SHE DID WITH RATED R…..LMFAO!!!

  229. CHH December 20, 2010

    CLEARLY SOME OF YOU DIDN’T READ WHAT HE SAID. HE SAID HE HAS NEVER BEEN IN THE STUDIO WITH BEYONCE AND HE HAS ONLY HEARD RUMORS, THEREFORE MAKING WHAT HE SAID IN THE PREVIOUS INTERVIEW, INACCURATE, FALSE, WRONG, AND DUMB. AS HE SAID, HE HAS NO PROOF OF WHAT SHE DOES SO HE CAN’T SPEAK ON IT. SO END OF DISCUSSION. AT THE END OF THE DAY, HE CROSSED BEYONCE STANS AND THAT’S SOMETHING YOU DON’T DO, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE A TWITTER ACCOUNT. MOST CELEBS ON TWITTER KNOW YOU CAN’T SLANDER BEYONCE ON TWITTER BECAUSE YOU WILL BE ATTACKED. BEYONCE KNOWS HER STANS ATTACK BECAUSE SHE THANKED THEM FOR DOING IT WHILE ON TOUR. MOST OF THE PRODUCERS AND WRITERS BEYONCE SURROUNDS HERSELF WITH KNOWS HOW GREAT SHE IS AND HOW MUCH SHE CONTRIBUTES TO A SONG. SHE ISN’T JUST A LYRICISTS, SHE’ S A SONG-WRITER.

  230. LDJ_BEY December 20, 2010

    @CHH WOW THAT WAS GREAT!!!

  231. Gucci December 20, 2010

    Soundz hasn’t worked with Beyonce personally, yes, but it’s ridiculous to think that out of all the industry connects he has, that he was never once told about Beyonce stealing songwriting credits from multiple people who have actually worked with her? Give me a break.

    He only threw in the rumor part to save face because the crazy Beyonce stans attacked him for no reason. And isn’t it ironic that you’re going in on him for never having been in the studio with her when your ass hasn’t either? What makes you stans more credible than him? Nothing.

    The fact that Beyonce has been sued more than one time for lying about her songwriting credits should be proof enough. I’m sure everyone in the industry knows that she steals credits so I applaud Soundz for keeping it real. It’s really a pity that he was attacked for telling the truth.

    Keep your head up stans. This doesn’t make me like Beyonce any less. She’s still a great performer and singer, she just hasn’t really understand the definition of plagiarism. You stans can keep attacking him but the true tea has already been spilt so at this point the topic needs no further discussion.

  232. Anthony The Great December 20, 2010

    @Gucci

    And none of those lawsuits ever had solid backing. So Your Point?

  233. LDJ_BEY December 20, 2010

    @gucci

    Exactly! so shutup about it! She still will be the 2nd african american woman to win the songwriter’s award in history. Until THAT is taken away then what people has to say don’t matter. I don’t care what producers (who never worked with her before and WHO NOW NEVER WILL) had said in the past.

    Plus everyone who is in music gets sued for songwriting or something to the fact. It’s nothing new. It is what it is.

  234. Beystanbish December 20, 2010

    Well he can take that apology and stick it up his ass. This b****** was talking on the side of his neck when he hasn’t even work with her. Dont f*** with the bey stans again. Ya heard? *matter of fact goes to his twitter to give him a piece of my mind again*

  235. Gucci December 20, 2010

    @Anthony The Great

    Girl hang it up. Has Ne-yo ever been sued for stealing song credits? Has Michael Jackson? Has any other artist besides Beyonce been sued MULTIPLE TIMES for stealing songwriting credits? Like come on honey stop living in denial. And why oh why are Beyonce stans stanning for her other accomplishments in this post and missing the entire point was that she steals songwriting credits? Lol.

    Bye girl, fly girl.

  236. ABC December 20, 2010

    I’m sure if his initial comments were geared towards Rihanna, then her stans would of attacked him on twitter and gave him threats as well, so all the Rihanna stans can be quiet with that…they are always quick to attack someone who criticizes Rihanna, her bad vocals, her stiff ass performances, etc.

    Did yall hear the demo to Only Girl?…Rihanna didn’t add ANY new to that song lmao

  237. Anissa December 20, 2010

    Beyonce can barely articulate a sentence or explain clearly the meaning feminism or what an alter ego is (remember her explanation of Sasha Fierce). Ha! She’s dumb. She can’t possibly write the songs that she sings. People write how they speak. And if any of her stans had any higher education (probably all high school drop outs like their Queen) then they would know this.

  238. Reina December 20, 2010

    @Gucci. I like a lot of beyonce’s songs and I want to hear her new material. But, as they say
    de-nile aint just a river in Egypt.

  239. Haza December 20, 2010

    Haha, he’s b****-made. Bey stans strike FEAR

  240. True Blue December 20, 2010

    @ Gucci:

    Plagiarism is taking credit for something you didn’t do WITHOUT crediting the original author. Beyonce has never done that. All the writers who work with her are given their proper credits, and she gets songwriting credit for doing VOCAL ARRANGEMENTS, which count as writing, since you’re changing the original composition of a song.

    And she’s been sued more than once, so what. Didn’t Anthony already address that? Lots of credible artists who actually are singer-songwriters have been sued MULTIPLE TIMES for actual plagiarism and credit stealing. See the earlier posts about other examples that are swept under the rug.

  241. THEREALNICKY December 21, 2010

    DEAD @ TATA

    LIKE BEYONCE MANAGED MORE THAN 1 NUMBER WITH IASF AND BDAY RIGHT????

    HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAH

    BDAY #1 IRREPLACABLE

    IASF #1 SINGLE LADIES

    YOURE DISMISSED BOOBOO!!!!

    #1 CAME FROM CHECK ON IT ON A GREATEST HITS COLLECTION HAHAHAHAHAHHA

  242. PAM December 21, 2010

    All I have to say is Beyoncé’s last tour 108 dates…grossed 103 million dollars. Rihanna’s last tour 65 dates less than 28 million that was billboard cutoff. Those are World-wide, not only US. Beyoncé ISAF album 6.6 to 7 million WW. Rihanna Rated”R” 2.5 to 3 million, both only produced on number one, but as we all know singles are used to sell an album, not the other way around, so Beyoncé’s singles did exactly what she needed them to do, sell her album. I won’t comment on LOUD sales, because I don’t know how much it’s going to sell.

  243. lol December 21, 2010

    nicky ur delusional, if bey released her album same time as rihanna ur fave career would be over. And lol at all these haters trying to discredit bey. Point is she is still going to be richer and more successful than your fave so bey is very smart. Noboy is touching bey on any level.

  244. True December 21, 2010

    I’m still shocked that people actually cared enough to talk bad to him on his Twitter page. Are y’all serious? Does Beyonce pay your bills? He stated his opinion based on what he heard and he is entitled to that. Just as her fans BELIEVE she is the best song-writer alive. It is my OPINION that she does not put pen to paper, therefore she should not get a songwriting credit.

  245. Gucci December 21, 2010

    @True Blue

    You don’t get WRITING CREDITS for vocal arrangements where you LITERALLLY only change one word. Girl goodbye. Listen to the demos of Beyonce’s songs honey she changes 0.001% and sticks her name on it as a SONGWRITER.

    Nicky hun, you need to sit down. You’re making a mockery out of other Rihanna stans and it’s a little annoying boo. This post had absolutely nothing to do with her. That also goes for the fool who tried to comment about me subliminally. *sips tea*

    Beyonce has been sued 4-5 times for stealing songs. When will you stans wake up? It’s not just a coincidence. Even Ne-yo clocked her tea. Girrrrrrl bye just stay delusional.

  246. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 21, 2010

    @Gucci

    LOL @ you saying she “steals” songwriting credits. How can you steal something that you are credited for? To say she buys them would make more sense, but to say she steals them is ridiculous. Like I’ve said you, me, nor Soundz has ever worked with her to knwo exactly what she does, so how can you determine what he is saying is “truth”?

    Do some research, babe, because believe it or not there are MULTIPLE artists that have been sued MULTIPLE time for copyright infringement, it’s apart of the business. Again, do the research before you comment about something you clearly know nothing about. Instead of crawling up and own what Beyonce is doing or has done, you could possibly explore that artists of a higher caliber have been sued WAY more than Beyonce.

    But I’m still waiting on how much those awards cost that Beyonce bought……

  247. Anne December 21, 2010

    @GUCCI, the bottom line is we don’t know so why speculate based on rumors? Until a court of law says otherwise, I’ll assume she met the minimal requirements for getting songwriting credits. Although someone else may want or think they deserve credit for writing a song by themselves, legally it doesn’t work that way. If their song was completely untouched then I’m sure they would be given sole credit. However, if it was edited or altered then it may be subject to credit sharing whether they want to share credit or not.

  248. J December 21, 2010

    BEYONCE STANS DON’T HAVE F***** LIVES! WORD UP! THEY PUT THAT B**** ON A MOTHERFUCKIN PEDASTAL LIKE DA B**** IS MADE OF GOLD OR SHE’S GOD! THE B**** DON’T GIVE YOU MONEY..

AND YA’LL STAN ASSES GET ALL MAD AS HELL FOR NOTHING. WHY? CAUSE THE N**** PUT HER OUT THERE AND YOU GUYS ARE SCARED THAT THE WORLD IS GOING TO FIND OUT THAT SHE’S A GIMMICK SO YOU GUYS HAVE TO RANT ON HIS TWITTER… SMH! GET F****** LIVES! I SWEAR BEYONCE’S FANS ARE THE WORSE FANS OF ANY ARTISTS THAT I KNOWN IN MY LIFE! NO WONDER PEOPLE ARE GETTING TIRED OF B****!

    really whats ur point trying to quote rihanna’s numbers on a beyonce post, RIHANNA WILL NEVER GET HALF THE RESPECT BEY HAS IN THE INDUSTRY , I MEAN SHE CAN’T EVEN SING, DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR AND COMPARE HER TO KESHA, KATY PERRY ETC, COMPARE BEYONCE TO LIKES OF CHRISTINA, BRITNEY

  251. TATA December 21, 2010

    @ THEREALNICKY
    hahahaha,i love how it took u forever to come back with an argument 🙂 and i also love the fact that u chose not to mention crazy in love and baby boy from DIL,see,at least i have solid ground to base my prediction. i also love how u didn’t come defend yo girl Riri with her poor album stats,no number 1 after 5 efforts…i’ll repeat,5 efforts(although gggb sold well overall). At the end of the day Bey is makin more money from albums sold than Rihanna from her singles sold 🙂 but yeah…ur right,check on it was on the DC greatest hits,but was also a bonus track on B’DAY so…and for IASF,the only reason is that single ladies was holding back If i were a boy,and ofcourse T.I’s live yo life. but yup,if u wanna be all technical about the whole number 1 singles thing,Rihanna only has 7 of her own songs at number 1 and 2 where she’s featured,so yeah….7 number 1’s with 5 albums,a feat Beyonce can easily manage 🙂
