Shirley Bassey Offers Advice To Beyonce & Rihanna: “Get A Vocal Coach”

Published: Sunday 24th May 2015 by David
shirley-bassey-that-grape-juice

Dame Shirley Bassey has urged Pop singers Beyonce & Rihanna to wear my clothes after seeing what the ladies sported to this year’s MET Gala in New York City.

Her words below…


The Mirror reports:

The Welsh legend 78, whose career has spanned 60 years, ranted: “It’s like they’re all in competition with each other for who can wear the skimpiest outfit.”

“In my day it was for the stage only, you didn’t go out looking like that.

“When I saw the Met Ball, excuse me, when I saw Rihanna’s gown.

“I think you have to leave some things to the imagination.

“Yes, my gowns were sexy, with a cut-out and a slit here, but I didn’t show everything.

“These girls are talented singers – they don’t need that but they feel they do.

“That’s the sad thing about it. Go in the studio and sing your heart out, get a vocal coach and strengthen your vocal cords.”

Do you agree?

    I detect no lies! But this post is about to get messy with the same hood rats going back and forth arguing the same thing they argue about everyday!

    • You tried May 24, 2015

      The sssssshadddeee lol Clearly she needs to do her research on the Queen open up them old ass ears and fix that hearing aid because BEYONCE SINGS IN MANY OCTAVES FLAWLESSLY! One of the greatest singers in the industry FACTS ONLY

      • Anne May 24, 2015

        Just looked at the article. She never used Beyoncé’s name. She only singled out Rihanna.

      • Kayla C May 24, 2015

        Beyonce is not a vocal powerhouse let’s not get carried away

      • Lake Erie May 24, 2015

        @Kayla. Yes., I don’t care how much Dream, and Jayz try to make it seem that way. But she’s nice. I’d say she’s the best at versatility with her voice. But even that comment may be a bit embellished.

      • Ciara the Flop May 24, 2015

        Bîtch, down! Beyoncé’s vocals are only flawless to loose bottoms who moans in Z-flat while playing his dîldos.

      • John “No Bulldish” Thomas August 7, 2017

        This is Rumour Control. Here are the FACTS:-

        W. Axl Rose and Mariah Carey’s vocal skills are compared on Youtube. Rearonce and W.Axl Rose’s are not. Do the math. 😉

        Let’s see how much YOU know…..! Beyonce and W.Axl Rose both have the same vocal training background – Church Choir.

        One of them has VOCAL CONTROL. And one of them DOES NOT.

        One of them can control their voice no matter the pitch of the note they’re singing. And in the voice the other of them you can always AUDIBLY HEAR TENSION IN THE NOTE BEING SUNG (because they are tensing up/fighting the note) WHENEVER even a REMOTELY high note is being sung by them.
        I’ll give you a clue which one of those is NOT the latter – it’s not Axl. Lol.
        😉

        Having an attitude and an emotional connection to a Wannabecool with an inferiority complex does not mean your OPINION is right. My advice is to learn music before you start TELLING people you are right in your opinion about it. And I sincerely, and genuinely wish you a nice day.

    • You tried May 24, 2015

      I do feel like it is kind of disturbing the way the girls today in music compete with the hair styles and tired naked clothes but at least these two talk s*** in their MUSIC you can tell they are here to win the GAME! And most people put them against EACHOTHER but don’t realize they are on the same team lol collecting all the money! Leaving the other girls accounts empty DROPS MIC

      • Minajesty May 24, 2015

        Why do you always respond to the first comment when leaving your own comment? Are you that desperate to get noticed?

      • Lake Erie May 24, 2015

        Lmao!!! @minajesty it seems like a lot of the same reoccurring commenter’s are seen trying to respond. Half don’t even make sense or is irrelevant to the post at hand lol. So I feel you and I see it. Lol

      • Shady81 May 24, 2015

        @Timmy Azalea b**** you tried it Janet can sing she may not be a powerhouse like Stephanie Mills,Whitney Houston, Minnie Ripleton, Celine Dion, Aretha Franklin, and Patty Labelle but at least Janet has emotional, Versatile range unlike Iggy who can’t even make great lyrical content even if someone told her to make a rap about wrapping paper.

    • no stan zone May 24, 2015

      I think this lady is confused. Rihanna’s dress wasn’t all that revealing. Beyonce’s was.
      I do agree with her on leaving something to the imagination though.
      And I’m sure BEYONCE already uses a vocal coach. Her vocals are way stronger they they were when she first started with DC.
      RIHANNA’s vocals are a whole other story. She may need to have an affair with a vocal coach. I’m just saying. ????

      • Anne May 24, 2015

        The quote above does not mention Beyoncé’s name. I wouldn’t be surprised if she got Beyoncé and Rihanna’s outfit and voice all mixed up. The vocal coach part was meant for Rihanna, the name that she used, but the skimpy outfit part must have been meant for Beyoncé, the name she didn’t use. She probably barely knows the difference between the two.

      • momo84 May 24, 2015

        Rihanna’s gown last year. … chuckles

    • You tried May 24, 2015

      As for the haters that recognize that I reply to the first comment need to hold your breathe for the next post I feel like commenting on! B**** I will never stop sharing my opinion and will do so however I please! Chump ass Internet clowns! I said how I felt and I’m not attacking anyone in the process! B**** wait on the next post cause you will c me! Carry on

    • scrappie May 25, 2015

      Yes because she is speaking out of jealousy. The Met Gala is about Fashion she is out of date.Expired.Not Fresh.Wrinkled. So yeah I would also hate to consider Beyonce and Rihanna make 90 percent more than she did in her day.

  2. Rihanna Lately May 24, 2015

    Who is this woman?

    • Britney & Director Iggy Azalea May 24, 2015

      Shirley Bassey one of the greatest vocaliste of all time along side Mrs Streisand and Franklin

      • Timmy Azalea May 24, 2015

        The only one who needs a vocal coach is a Janet. I can’t hear a word she’s saying in some of her songs.

      • Lake Erie May 24, 2015

        @Timmy, and when iggy gone finally bust a free style of substance?

      • ~The Arcade~ May 24, 2015

        @Timmy Azalea In the words of Tamar “LIES”… have a good day! ✌️

      • SMH May 24, 2015

        An iggy azalea fan is in no position to talk about anybody’s voice until iggy decides which voice she wants to use.

      • Lake Erie May 24, 2015

        @SMH @Arcade, yes! Lol.

  3. TheElusiveLamb May 24, 2015

    Now Sam, this post is about to get you the hits & comments you wanted.

  4. Centurion May 24, 2015

    Well, Beyonce needs one. Lately she’s been sounding like she fellitiates quite a lot of guys, even though she’s married, but we all know the marriage is a sham. 🙂

    • Rihanna Lately May 24, 2015

      Stop lying, Beyoncé’s Vocals are extremely good.

      • Centurion May 24, 2015

        Centurion doesn’t lie.

      • Centurion May 24, 2015

        You’re obsessed with me Suprise. And a hyena has a thin high pitched “voice” to say the least. Rihanna is a Lyric-Contralto with a Jazzy and/or bassy voice, so that drag is as stale as Beyonce’s “personality”. (I hope you get the quotation marks, since you’re clinically retarded) 😆

      • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) May 24, 2015

        B**** you’re saying i am obsessed with you??? But u comment more on a beyonce post than the entire hive itself..Rihpunch ain’t no contralto with a jazzy voice..LOL. Her vocal description is the sound a GOAT WILL MAKE IF U F***** IT IN THE ASS(WE ALL KNOW IT’S SOMETHING U WILL DO)..That’s what you can liken her vocals(or lack thereof) to..BYE

    • Dancing Monkey May 24, 2015

  5. Rihanna Lately May 24, 2015

    Rihanna does have a vocal coach, I don’t know about the stripper but her vocals are extremely good this woman needs to be taking her pills I see.

  6. Credits May 24, 2015

    She is not saying that they absolutely need one but rather, focus on the singing instead of the outfits.

  8. HOWYOULIKEIT May 24, 2015

    Are you in their mind to know what they feel or what they need? and why do you compare your era to theirs? They are not supposed to act exactly like you did in your days

  9. TheElusiveLamb May 24, 2015

    SN: Beyoncè does not need a vocal coach, but it’s obvious that she uses one. I can hear the natural drop in her voice that female singers go through (ie Mariah, Whitney, Aretha, even Patti) but it’s obvious she takes care of her voice which is why her voice is a lot stronger and developed than her first two (maybe three) eras.

    • Navy Gravy May 24, 2015

      It’s not too obvious that she uses a vocal coach. She definitely USED to prior to IASF. She needs someone to tell her that grunting and roaring is NOT singing and it doesn’t sound that good either. She doesn’t exercise the length of her range anymore and she also can’t remember her song lyrics and melodies. She isn’t passionate about the music she puts out anymore. She’s not a great singer she’s a LOUD singer, but a good performer. Notice she never performs the most challenging songs live and when she does she never hits the hi notes. She could definitely get back in with a vocal coach. Far from one of the best.

      • Lake Erie May 24, 2015

        Lmao @ grunting and roaring. Beyonce wants to be like the greats. Such as chaka khan, Patti and Aretha, etc. You can tell in the way she tries to growl or roar, etc. lol. A lot of people have noticed. I’ve even heard some people say she makes up notes lol. Whatever that’s means.

    Shirley honey, times have changed. This ain’t the 50s anymore. And Beyoncé’s are one of the best of this current generation, the same however cannot be said for the other girl.

    B**** didn’t you marry a f**(you were a f****** BEARD for crying out loud),whom you later cheated on with Peter Finch. It later turned out that both of your daughters were fathered by your lover(who denied them of course). During your divorce proceedings, more of your dirty laundry was aired for all to see. You not only cheated on your f** husband with Peter, you two-timed both of them with John McAuliffe. Your ex husband later suing you for “indiscreet”. FOH you low life f****** hypocrite w**** s*** slore who couldn’t keep it in her pants. John later said your head game was walk af and that you bit his P-E-N-I-S.

    So Ms Bassey I will need you to re-seat yourself with immediate effect. You know what they say about people who live in glass houses. Fix your own skeletons before coming for others.

    Dear Rihanna.
    I can’t believe it’s been ten years since you released your first single. How time flies. It seems like just yesterday that you were finding genius ways to cover that planet that is your forehead and put singing goats of business with that voice of yours.
    Now look. Ten years have come and gone and you are on top of the world. Rihanna, you prove that dreams really can come true and I love you for inspiring prostitutes everywhere to pat their inner p****** and reach for their inner thot.
    You go girl.
    By the way, I’m going to have to uninivite you to my party next week. It’s for girls who have sold 300k first week or more and I thought you had. Turns out you haven’t. Better luck next time sis.

    Hearts, kisses and subliminal disses.

    “I think you have to leave some things to the imagination.”


    But Rihanna didn’t dress up like a $2 dollar crack head ho, that was all Beyonce.

    @Elusive, he had no choice. Everyone was clocking David for that late ass false post.

      It’s still there. I think King David backdated it.

    Samantha why did you delete that MC/J Lo post???

  45. LB May 24, 2015

    To be honest though, the time when you needed fantastic vocal ability to sell records is long gone. I mean the fact that Mzz Taylor Swift rules the world is proof of that enough.

    So Mzz Shirley is simply old fashioned, welcome to the digital era.

    • Stephy. May 24, 2015

      Speak on it boo. Taylor can’t sing worth a damn. But, she selling like hot cakes.

      • Molly May 24, 2015

        You sell off an imagine these days Instead of talent.

  46. Molly May 24, 2015

    Rihanna has decent vocal moments. But Beyonce is a vocal beast this lady needs to stfu. Why is she hating on the younger girls?

  47. Tina Turn Her May 24, 2015

    So Shirley the Thot wants to talk about class? Sweetheart, why don’t you know who your children’s’ father is? Why do you sleep with married men? Is that lady like? Is that classy? Local ass pensioner thot thinks she’s in the position to give lessons on class when she’s been smashed more times than plates at a Jewish wedding,

      Say what now?

      • LB May 24, 2015

        Apparently there was an MC vs J.Lo post that Samantha deleted.

    • TheElusiveLamb May 24, 2015

      JLO scrolling through IG while Mimi was performing…

      • LB May 24, 2015

        SCREAMING, where is the video of that.

      • Molly May 24, 2015

        Jlo is rude as shît she did something similar during Beyonce vma performance last year.

      • TheElusiveLamb May 24, 2015

      • LB May 24, 2015

        DEATH @ the video, the shade. Ya, J.Lo is kind of a shady heffer.

      • TheElusiveLamb May 24, 2015

        @Molly She has done it to Usher, Nicki, and a few others too. She said it’s no shade though and that it means she’s captured by the performance, so I believe her (until proven otherwise).

  49. Stephy. May 24, 2015

    She needs to STFU. Miss Shirley has a closet FULL of skeletons. Sit yo fossil ass down.

    The headline is misleading. She merely taking about they’re outfits. That’s the central focus. Well done David. ???? ???? ????

  54. SMH May 24, 2015

    In typical form, the beyonce fans get b*** sores when someone tells it like it is about her. Here’s an idea: tell your little fave to sell talent instead of ass and maybe she won’t get dragged so much for being a tryhard. Now go ahead and respond to this and prove my point.

    • Beygency May 24, 2015

      Honey it’s not that serious. There’s life outside of TGJ. Of course you would be perched in every Bey post. Enjoy the rest your Sunday✌✌✌????

  55. ~The Arcade~ May 24, 2015

    There’s a song Rihanna did called ‘Willing to wait’ on the Music of the Sun album, and I must say she did an amazing job… like I was actually pleasantly surprised lol. I’m talking about runs and riffs that homegirl could actually do; I genuinely think she’s forgotten how to sing cos she’s not hungry for the sport any more and that has always been my main gripe with her. Someone needs to send her a link to that song to remind and motivate her of her vocal ability.

    • Mark111 May 24, 2015

      The only song i disliked on that album.

      • Stephy. May 24, 2015

        That song is beautiful. It actually gives me Mariah tease.

      • ~The Arcade~ May 24, 2015

        Really? I actually liked it. She really SHOULD do more R&B tracks like tbh.

  56. JT May 24, 2015

    In the case of 10 years in the Industry Rihanna, yes.. But Beyonce? Nope Shirley you tried it!

  62. taqui arandi May 24, 2015

    Understand the wisdom of a legend is invaluable… None of us truly know the years of blood, sweat, and tears behind these comments. People like Dame Shirley Bassey were in the trenches during so many major reforms of life we take for granted… So if she is talking bout Rihanna & Beyonce they need to catch the light behind through the shade if its truly there…. BUT YALL BETTER RESPECT THE LEGENDS….

  63. Legend B May 24, 2015

    Miss Bassey must also show respect to the younger generation. She seems salty she couldnt wear those outfits 50 years ago kii ???????????????? I see u hun ????????????????????????????

  64. You wanna love it right bettor like you do then my funky money May 25, 2015

    She only mention Rihanna fenty name not Beyoncé knowles Carter

  65. JOHNVIDAL May 25, 2015

    I agree with her. Both Rihanna and Beyonce looked pathetic.
    They should focus more on singing. Although Beyonce is not all that obviously, and Rihanna just cannot sng at all. So I guess this was all shade. Go Shirley! LOL

  66. John “No Bulldish” Thomas August 7, 2017

    This is Rumour Control – Here are the FACTS:
    You have NO EAR for music. FACT. Beyonce has the exact same vocal training as W. Axl Rose. FACT. Church Choir. And let’s not have any excuses about “different vocal styles” or any of that nonsense PLEASE. We’re talking about PROFESSIONAL VOCAL CONTROL here – THE ABILITY TO SING. Something W. Axl Rose has tons of, something Beyonce DOES NOT HAVE. Whenever she tries to sing ANY note that is even REMOTELY high, you can AUDIBLY HEAR the EFFORT at doing such coming from her body and through the noise that comes out of her mouth. THIS IS **BAD** SINGING. And occurs because for all her Wannabecoolness, Beyonce is as far from being a person who is naturally inclined toward singing as it’s possible for a person to be.

    The FACT you refer to her as “Queen B” says a lot about your defense of her.

    LOL! I’ve seen W. Axl Rose SPRINT 400 METERS – WHILE SINGING IN PERFECT CONTROL. Slip and fall on his ass. Continue sliding on his ass and off the stage. Fall the 8 feet or whatever off the stage, landing on his ass. He didn’t stop singing the whole time till he was meant to stop singing, and he did so WHILE STILL RETAINING COMPLETE VOCAL CONTROL through EVERYTHING I just described. If Beyonce and Rearhanna or SUCH good singers – LET’S SEE AND HEAR THEM DO THIS – and PROVE IT!!!! 😛

    As for Rearhanna, her voice is like nails running down a chalk board. It IS A DRONE. A nasally DRONE. Best way I can describe it. Her vocal tone is BORED/DON’T CARE ABOUT DOING THIS FOR A LIVING. And it comes through in her voice. It’s ALWAYS come through in her voice. WHY? My best guess is SHE’S ALWAYS been INTERESTED IN FAME. And NOT interested in the art of SINGING or MUSIC. First word that enters my head every singing time I have the misfortune to hear sounds coming out of that little girl’s mouth is DRONE. I refer to her as such with no intent to insult little girls. I refer, of course, to her behaviour.

    Both of these people are MANUFACTURED PRODUCTS. Whereas W. Axl Rose is anything but. There is a reason you can find a vocal comparison between him and Mariah Carey on Youtube. And a reason he’s not been compared on there to either of these two abominations. An ass doesn’t make you a singer (unless you fall on it, slide off stage on it, fall on it, and maintain vocal control while doing such). Just in case you haven’t worked that out yet.

    And neither does Wannabecoolness. Shouting I AM THE GREATEST does NOT make you such!!!!! (FML! F this fake-ass, Wannabecool-obsessed, shallow as F century, man!!!!).

    You have to EARN being cool. Neither of these two muppets have come closee to doing that (no offense intended to the SPECTACULARLY TALENTED Muppets – they have more talent in ONE thread of their fabric than these manufactured whores do). For the record, I don’t really have THAT big a problem with manufactured music. I DO have a problem with prostitution entering the pop charts, and the ears of our young. I’m not religious. I’m just not stupid, a parrot-mouth, or a sheep-head. I wish more people in the world were like me that way. 😛

    I respect that people like different things. But most people defending these people on the internet have zero musical ear. A serious inferiority complex – and they’re looking for celebrities who match this profile – because it makes them feel connected.
