Yesterday (4-21) Howard Stern played what he claimed to be an unedited board mix of Beyonce's performance of "If I Were A Boy" from "The Today Show" appearance last year [listen to it here], but now Beyonce is saying that it's fake. Today Beyonce said the report was "ridiculous" saying "Of course I'm just hearing about this today — and I haven't heard it but it sounds completely ridiculous," Beyoncé said during an interview for her new film "Obsessed."

Beyonce went on to say "Everyone's heard me sing and it's perfect timing, actually, because I'll be on the 'Today' show tomorrow singing 'Halo,' or tonight you can watch me sing live on David Letterman! It's perfect promotion, whoever came up with that idea." [watch here]
Beyonce's dad and manager, Mathew Knowles, recently commented on the tape saying "If no one took the time to look at the biggest Inauguration in the history of America then shame on them," he wrote. "If no one took the time to listen to Beyoncé sing 'America the Beautiful' and 'At Last' at the Neighborhood Ball for the first dance of President Obama and the First Lady, and they question Beyoncé's vocal ability, they've gotta be an idiot." Knowles finished up by saying "At 12 years into her career, the last thing someone should be questioning is her vocal ability. That would be like questioning if Kobe Bryant could shoot a jump shot. The vocals were obviously altered."
