While discussing Fergie’s All-Star Game National Anthem performance during an episode of her talk show, Wendy Williams stated, “There are only a few people who can sing raw dog and Fergie is not one, she needs Auto-Tune. Jen Lopez needs Auto-Tune, Janet [Jackson] needs Auto-Tune, Beyoncé needs Auto-Tune.”
She added, “Adele, Aretha, Celine, Dion Warwick and Mariah, they need nothing.”
Twitter was outraged that Queen Bey was included in the statement.
Something is wrong with Wendy Williams y’all. We need to stop acting like she’s okay.
She thinks Beyoncé needs auto tune. That’s crack-ish.
