Girl, what are you doing?! Clearly Wendy Williams learned nothing from the backlash after making rude comments about Kylie Jenner, because she just did the same thing to Beyoncé on Feb. 20! The talk show host suggested that Queen Bey needs autotune and… excuse us?

Perhaps Wendy was still a little groggy returning to her show after feeling flu-ish last week, because she seemed to have forgotten how bloodthirsty the BeyHive can be! It all started when Wendy brought up Fergie's controversial National Anthem rendition at the NBA All-Star game. "There are only a few people who can sing raw dog and Fergie is not one, she needs auto-tune," said Wendy. "Jen Lopez needs auto-tune, Janet [Jackson] needs auto-tune, Beyoncé needs auto-tune." We can't think of a single instance when a live performance by Bey was anything less than perfect, and fans felt the same way.
"Imagine thinking Beyoncé, one of the most technically flawless and consistent vocalists in popular music, always delivering pitch-perfect LIVE vocals, needs autotune. Beyoncé's never even been in the same room as auto tune. ???. Oh, Wendy… " said one fan. Another agreed, writing, "Something is wrong with Wendy Williams y’all. We need to stop acting like she’s okay. She thinks Beyoncé needs autotune. That’s crack-ish." Yet another fan came with hard evidence:
Wendy Williams: "Beyoncé needs auto tune to sing"

What's even more interesting is that Wendy went on to describe people that she feels do not need autotune, and at least one was controversial. "Adele, Aretha, Celine, Dion Warwick and Mariah, they need nothing," she said. Apparently, she forgot those humiliating autotune-free leaked performances of "All I Want For Christmas Is You," and fans latched onto that as well.
"I'm actually irritated that Wendy Williams sat in her chair and said Beyoncé needs autotune and that she can't sing but Mariah Carey can," said an outraged viewer. "I didn’t think Wendy Williams was on drugs until I heard her say that Dionne Warwick and Mariah Carey don’t need autotune but Beyoncé does. Now maybe 1999 Mariah didn’t but have you heard Mariah struggle through “Hero” lately?!? Girl sit." At least we can always count on Wendy to bring the drama!
