Mathew Knowles: You Can Go To ANY NUMBER Of Churches And Hear COUNTLESS Singers That Are BETTER Than Beyonce

: MediaTakeOut.com has just learned that Mathew Knowles may be taking subtle jabs at his superstar daughter Beyonce. According to Sister2Sister magazine, Mathew explained to a sell out conference the secret to Beyonce's success. And according to Mathew - it has nothing to do with her singing talent.

Here's how Sister2Sister is reporting it:

[Mathew] said that he knows that he could go to any number of churches and hear countless singers who could outsing his superstar daughter Beyonce. But the difference is that his daughter was driven

Now maybe we're making too much out of this. But how are you gonna short sell Beyonce's singing ability.

Is it really that easy to find someone with more talent than her? And if it is that easy - should Mathew be putting that out there like that??

Do you win a prize for being first or in the top ten? We hope that everybody can count to ten. If you just want to count take a math class and try to be more educated than wasting your time being first. It just shows you have little intelligence. Anyway, Mr. Knowles is right. There are some beautiful women who sing in the church who never make it big. There are some who choose to sing for the Lord and nothing is wrong with that. It is a matter of choice. There are other who would like to make it big but do have the means or the resources to do so. I dont believe he is short selling his daughter. This is his opinion.

He is telling the truth. The thing that makes Beyonce stand out - is her WORK ETHIC. SHE PUTS ON A SHOW! SHE IS AN ENTERTAINER - not a SANGER! There are singers on every corner....but what "she works what her momma gave her", and the created a BRAND. They created Beyonce the "Business." You can only buy so many records - but when you are an ENTERTAINER --- people will come out and see her --- wear something short and skimpy and dance all over the stage. This is why most "singers" these days are flash in the pans --- you can only buy so many Ashanti records!

In my opinion, Mr. Knowles is being quite humble. He's explaining that there will always be better singers, models, artists, etc, but that Beyonce had a drive to succeed. That's all and I didn't read anymore out of his statement MTO. Beyonce, with his help, has planned a very successful career. She didn't have any unplanned children or get married before HER career was established. Those are great business decisions if you want to succeed. However, I believe she and JZ have carried it a bit too far by denying everything, including the santity of their marriage. It sounds like business as usual.

Mathew was not lying. Beyonce is not that great of a singer, and you CAN go to any church and find ladies who can sing better. I strongly doubt that he said that to bash his daughter. No parent who loves their child would do that. But I just think that he was saying that if you're driven, your drive can take you a long way, verses having talent and doing absolutely nothing with it.

@focus: I think that Jay and Beyonce are doing the right thing - by keeping people OUT of their business. What good does it do the public to know that they are married.....so what... Remember Janet Jackson was married for 10 years and NO ONE knew (except maybe 6 people). It did her career a lot of good. JLO was stupid to have the media follow her and Ben Affleck around...that is where they made the first mistake. In this game....the WORLD does not need to know all your business. And the more you can keep private --- the less the haters have to talk about!

He wasn't selling her out. He was getting on the young people at the conference for acting like they didn't care. He was trying to help them out. They were arriving late and he was going to choose one of them and give them a single or something like that and he said he could walk into a any black church and find someone who could sing better than Bey but the difference is she is driven etc. He was talking about how she lives and breathes what she does. It's not just about the singing. MTO is forever taking things out of context. If ya'll want the true story check out the current issue of S2S, the one with lil mama in it. I think she's on the cover, I don't remember.

Send me a link to the post that he LIED on! There are SEVERAL women out there who can outsing Beyonce... and he's right, you have to be driven.. and you have to be an ENTERTAINER - Beyonce is both. Love her or hate her, she will entertain the hell out of your azz! That's why people like Janet & Michael with below average singing voices made it.... they're entertainers, and people who blast Janet STILL don't get that. It's truly a rare find to come across someone who can both sing AND entertain you while doing it. So, people like Justin, Usher, Omarion etc aren't the best singers, but they've got a certain something...

Sure there are alot of singers that sing better than her. That is why she had to create the attention getter business of "beyonce" as we know her today. Blonde fake wigs, pounds of make-up, skimpy tight outfits, nose-jobs, etc. She HAD to bring both SEX APPEAL (especially to the white audience in order to cross-over and really make it BIG), and a drive in order to market herself as a superstar. She's accomplished this already, I would like to see her move into the next step both lyrically and vocally.

1st off, what he said about her singing ability is the truth. Beyonce isn't a power singer. She can pull off a few notes, but most of the time it sounds like she's shrieking. She'd sound much better if she stayed in her range. Leave the power ballads to the big breasted girl's like Aretha, Patti and Jill. (The only exception to the big chested rule are Mariah and Whitney, everyone else needs to stop trying.) And he's not taking a jab at his daughter. He's admitting that Beyonce is a finely crafted image and it's that image that draws fans to her. People aren't just buying her music, they're buying the persona she's created. I'm not a fan, but I can give the girl props because she (or her management) knows how to sell herself. That and she stays working. She knows she has to stay grinding if she wants to keep her place in the music scene. She's created a virtually unstoppable media machine and that's how she stays on top. There may be people with better vocal skills but not many have the drive it takes to stay in the public eye.

Beyonce is the sh!t... her voice is amazing and I'm sure there are people that sing better than her, but that cant take away from her superstardom whether Matthew discusses her singing abilities or not... I doubt its easy to find talent like her. If so where they at?

@Goodgirl- Honey you killin Beyonce in looks. Now if you had the drive and a half decent voice you could make it.

He knows and everyone else knows that she can't touch alot of females out there when it comes to singing. She just happen to have the look, dance moves and personality. It amazes me how many people act as if Beyonce is God, like there is noone above her. The girl is imperfect just like everyone else. You Beyonce worshippers need to calm down.

Just because a person in church decided not to pursue a career in singing but still sings in the church does not mean they are not or were not driven. Maybe they decided that type of life style was not for them. Maybe they enjoyed other thing or had other passions either it be a teacher, doctor, social worker or whatever their other strength maybe. Maybe they didn't have the right people in their life to keep their eye on the prize and focus like Mathew and Tina did Beyonce. Remember you don't choose the family you're born into so maybe some of those peolpe who do sing in the church with great voices were born into a family that didn't motivate or appreciate the value in singing. In my opinion, Beyonce was just lucky to be born into a family that had big dreams for her and were determined to make them come true. Her mother and father used their life experiences and education to see it through. So please do not look down on the people in the church who can sing especially if you don't know their situation or what their true passion is.

Theres a few in my church who can end Beyonce's career TODAY! lol Some pple in church don't persue "secular" careers because, well...its "secular" No amount of money in the world can be placed on the voice that God gave to them and for other reasons along that line, they chose to sing to the honor and glory of God for the rest of their days. Pple like Beyonce, Whitney Houston and a lot of others who started in the church just took a diff route

He's right. Beyonce can sing but There are a lot of singers who can outsing Beyonce and all the mainstream stars. Some of you are crazy if you think being a big star is the same thing as being one of the best singers in the world. In order to be a big star you have to want it and also be the complete package and be a lil lucky.

Well, truth be told, everyone knows Beyonce is talented- and beautiful-- but he has a point. Not saying that there are MANY singers out there that are more talented than Bey, but the fact is, that there are a number of phenominal singers out there that yes, were NOT driven, and who just sing in the car because they never made it!

Matthew Knolwes is full of shit and always has been! If he had ever found someone that could out sing Beyonce, they would have never saw they light of day b/c he would have ruined their careers just like he is doing with Kelly and Michelle. He's right to some degree but Beyonce was destined to be a star. And there is nothing that he could have done to stop that from happening. There is so much more to Bey than just singing. That's why all of these people in churches Matthew is talking about can't be famous. You have to be able to do more than just sing these days to make it. That's why Kelly will never be on Bey's level professionally.

@Lockstress Flag post Hi Everyone! Uh...Beyonce's voice is not as powerful as Deelishis and I think nothing of that trick. He's absolutely right...he can sing, carry a note but she's not on Patti's level at the time Patty was her age, Aretha...at the time she was Beyonce's age or Mariah (and I can't stand that bytch) but she is driven, she does have talent, she sacrificed and there you have it! And she deserves every phuckin dollar she makes...just not mine cuz I don't buy nuffin that makes these supa starz any richer than they need to be! The next move is coming out with a line of wigs! ****************************************************** You said it. I do believe video killed the radio star, if some of you guys know this song. This was the first video on MTV. And ever since then, image has become more and more important. I'm not saying it wasn't before, ie: Motown, Little Richard, Elvis. But now it is too much veneer and not enough sustenance. I'm not a fan of Beyonce and I won't deny her talent, but I think a lot of people live through this girl, mostly because of her looks. I think if Patti or Aretha came out as young artist now, we would be talking about there looks. A few of us would still buy the albums. But we would not be able to fantasize about looking like them or being with them, even if they are singing the truth. Now a day, we use our imaginations less and less. I , myself , like to make up my own fantasies when I listen to music. We focus on these stars. So a lot of church women would not be able to make it because she doesn't have that CERTAIN look.

@LetsBeHonest Flag post Just because a person in church decided not to pursue a career in singing but still sings in the church does not mean they are not or were not driven. Maybe they decided that type of life style was not for them. Maybe they enjoyed other thing or had other passions either it be a teacher, doctor, social worker or whatever their other strength maybe. Maybe they didn't have the right people in their life to keep their eye on the prize and focus like Mathew and Tina did Beyonce. Remember you don't choose the family you're born into so maybe some of those peolpe who do sing in the church with great voices were born into a family that didn't motivate or appreciate the value in singing. In my opinion, Beyonce was just lucky to be born into a family that had big dreams for her and were determined to make them come true. Her mother and father used their life experiences and education to see it through. So please do not look down on the people in the church who can sing especially if you don't know their situation or what their true passion is. ******************************************************* I feel you on that.

I've been saying the EXACT SAME THING for years, but I get labeled as a "hater." She is DRIVEN. There is no DENYING that. Beyonce has made it to where she is by hard work and smart business choices including sexy clothing, suggestive dancing, and catchy lyrics. It is not ROCKET SCIENCE! Since Destiny's Child hit the stage on Teen Summit, I didn't see anything exceptional, especially in comparison to En Vogue. Beyonce Knowles may go down in history for being 1 of the greatest performers, but she will never be remembered for having 1 of the GREATEST VOICES! @ LetsBeHonest I feel what you're saying. Gospel singers are just as driven if not more. Their success has a lot to do with marketing and cross over appeal (like Kirk Franklin, Tye Tribbett, and even Bebe and Cece Winans). I've heard a lot of criticism come their way, because it is "too secular." Yes, the music should be about the Gospel, but who doesn't want to sell albums as well? Many gospel artists want to be able to do both genres, but they risk losing some of their Christian fan base by doing secular, even though there is most likely more money.

She aint done nothing this year really. Me personally, I'm lookin foward to her next album becuz only she and Alicia Keys are worth talkin about in terms of Pop/R&B artists. And she gonna switch it up a little. Badu and Jill are cool but they dont push their products like that. And if you dont help push your albums nowadays, you get no press.

TAKE WHITNEY, ARETHA, PATTI WE'VE ALL AT SOME POINT SAID THAT THEY WERE THE "BEST" TOO. BUT THE TRUTH IS IT'S THE SAME WITH THEM AS IS IT WITH BEE. THEY HAD DRIVE AND THAT "IT" FACTOR AND THEY MADE IT! THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT THEY WERE EXACTLY THE "BEST" AT SINGING EITHER.

I seriously wonder what level of education or comprehension skills some of you all have. The report is that he was at a conference to speak about Beyonce's success. He is not lying, there are myriads of singers around who are way more talented than Beyonce. I give him props for being truthful, but he has hit the nail right on the head. The real determinant of success is not talent, but drive and perseverance. Simply he is telling the audience anybody can be exceptionally successful if they have determination and perseverance. MTO as usual is twisting some of your minds to see what does not exist.

@1morething: It's not about allowing the media in your business. They're in your business when you announce a mega-dollar business deal. The sanctity of marriage is something totally different. Announce it and be done with it. I didn't say announce it and have them come to your house for an interview. You'll notice the few celebs who don't announce they're married don't seem to have a strong foundation either and something seems unhealthy about it. Why deny you're a mother? Why deny you married the love of your life? As for Janet keeping her marriage a secret. There's more to that story. She told her side but in the end, her ex-husband said he had to scrap and fight just to get compensated for songs he had written for her. She had fooled him into thinking his name shouldn't go on her cd as a producer. Call me a skeptic but it's business as usual for some of these celebs and that's why their marriages don't have a chance.

I agree with AllaboutmeWill, The man is telling the truth, talent can only get you so far. I feel sorry for those saying Beyonce only got far because of her family or skin color because you obviously are failures your self if you can't see the determination and drive she has put in her career. The fact of the matter is, her family was just supporting their child in fulfilling her dream, a role a lot of black parents seem to neglect based on these responses. People keep blaming Beyonce for what happened to Destinys's Child, but the truth is the other girls were not dedicated at all and if I was Matthew Knowles (who quit his job to manage the group). I would drop them too, there's no room for slackers. Hell look at them now, the only one that had a margin of success was Letoya Luckett and it took her years to recover simply because they had no drive. Some of ya'll need to stop hating because that is advise you can use in every aspect of life appreciate it.

A lot of those artist work their craft just as hard but also have to work a job to support themselves. Beyonce is blessed in that she has support in every area of her life- mentally, physically, etc. Now that she's married J thats the icing on the cake.

Beyonce has a lot of stage presence, no she's not the best singer, but she has a presence about her that makes you want to look at her-you cannot deny that she is gorgeous. Add that with her singing (which is not bad) and her dance moves, she's a hot ticket. Sure, I've heard many singers that are better than Beyonce, but when I see Beyonce on a video or performing somewhere I look at it and that is because of her total package as a performer. @styles-p, I believe she was very admired before she started dating Jay-now that they are married (so people say) the attention is great because they're both celebrities. Again, she's hot right now and there's no denying it.

EVERYONE has a talent. It's the driven ones who succeed... Beyonce,Tina and Matthew paid their dues. Matthew had a vision and he put it to work. Now if people could see the business part, then you would understand Matthew and his statement. At least Beyonce didnt have to sleep with anyone to get where she is. That alone makes her a class act. Not many females in the industry can say that.

I think he's totally right. She's got a great voice no doubt about it but be real she's not THEE BEST singer in the world. There probably are people out there who sing better but maybe they aren't determined enough to make it work, or luck ain't on their side. Or maybe they sing as a hobby and don't wanna make it their career. He's not insulting his mealticket...I mean daughter, he's just being real.

He's right. I don't think he's bashing his daughter though. There are way more talented singers out there. Beyonce is where she is because she is beautiful and has a nice body (sex sells) but she was also ambitious and determined.

@all aboutwill Um, I think I know what wealthy is. That is a lot of money to you or I. From what I heard, yes, he was making money, and quit his job, did you see that house. Who told you the mom didn't work, the mom was working, did hair, and had a shop. When she blew up they became richer.

Come on now MTO. She's good and all, but we know she ain't the be all to end all. He is almost right. She's not a success because she is driven, but because of opportunity. She has opportunities others haven't that's all. Many many talented singers in this world, who yes, can out sing even her. Time, place, opportunity were in her favor. That's just being real.

First of all I read the aritcle and the people at the confrence showed up late, and he said it showed lack of drive, and all he was saying was that yes; it may be a lot of girls in church that could out sing his daughter,but few that could out work her. MTO cut it out.

Chambalady, Define, "out work?" I don't know how old you are, but if you wanna see "out work" or a true work-a-holic, try looking at some of Janet Jackson's old concert footage from her Rhythm Nation album. I saw Janet in concert 18 years ago and Beyonce can't come close to that! The only thing Beyonce has over Janet or any other woman in the industry, is the ability to "out STRIP." Futhermore, if it's not choreographed, Beyonce can't do it. Hell, Ciara is a much better dancer! Ciara is a street dancer, who can freestyle dance anyone under the table. Everything Beyonce does, HAS to be rehearsed. She's strictly a studio performer as opposed to a freestyle performer.

The church is the root of great singers and what her father says is factual...aspiring singers must present with more than just a voice in this business...Beyonce did.

FIRST OF ALL EVERYONE KNOWS MTO IS TAKING HIS WORDS AS ANOTHER WAY TO BASH BEYONCE AS USUAL. SECONDLY 80% OF YOU PEOPLE DISSING BEYONCE SAYIN SHE ISN'T AMONGST THE "REAL" SINGERS AND SHE ONLY GOT TO WHERE SHE IS BECAUSE OF HER LOOKS ARE WRONG! SEX SELLS AND MOST OF THE SINGERS YOU GUYS LIST HAVE USED SEX/LOOKS TO SELL INCLUDING MARIAH AND ARETHA. IF YOU LOOK AT OLD VIDEOS OF ARETHA HER IMAGE IS CAREFULLY CRAFTED, GLAMOROUS HAIR AND FITTED DRESSES. AND LETS NOT EVEN START WITH MARIAH, SHOW ME A VIDEO WHERE HER BOOBS AREN'T HANGING OUT

WoW! Reading is fundamental like a mofo! Mr. Knowles loves his baby girl to death but he is tryinhg to teach a lesson here that its not talent that automatically ensures success. Basically everyone knows a singer and if you visit some of these churches they can really blow even better than his daughter but drive is what sets her apart from the average singer.
