Former Sony Employee: Beyonce Indeed Lies About Her Songwriting!

This debate seems to happen often about whether or not Beyonce actually writes her songs as she claims. All while listing herself under writing credits for those songs. Every now and then a writer will come out the woodwork to say they wrote the song and Bey and her camp didn't. These songwriters (and others) say B's camp either pay to have Beyonce's name replace theirs, or the Knowles camp just replaces it on their own. Then drama would ensue in the gossip mill. I received an interesting letter from a former Sony (Beyonce is part of Sony Entertainment) employee. This person has been corresponding with YBF and many other sites for years on official artist and music news directly from the company. But now that said employee has been recently fired, they want to confirm that the rumors are true about Beyonce's songwriting. Read the rest for the letter...

I take my music seriously and

I take my music seriously and don't know what natasha intentions are but I was never been a trustworthy fan of Beyonce. I wonder how it feels to get help from an aggressive father to keep you on top. I guess that she (Beyonce) feel protected receiving awards with a half-ass job. That's sad, especially for people with a real soul and have alot to share with people from experience that can make real music. Music is not real anymore.

ppl say it doen't matter who

ppl say it doen't matter who writes the song well it does because it not only take the credit away from someone but it takes money out their pocket if it was not important then why steal or take credit??? hummmm?
whatever's picture

Oh yeah...as for me. I enjoy

Oh yeah...as for me. I enjoy some of Beyonce's music and think she is a great performer. However, I respect artists like Whitney Houston who say "give me a great song, and I will show up to sing it." No pretension there.

So funny. Of course this is

So funny. Of course this is common knowledge. Who cares? Probably those with more talent and less fame. I thought it was hilarious when she was taken out of the running for a songwriting nomination at the Grammy's. Turns out 8 other people collaborated on the song and she wanted credit. Um, really? Anyway, it is what it is. So what if the woman who said it is a terminated employee. Doesn't make it untrue.

There are videos of her

There are videos of her writing with Angie and Sean Garrett on youtube. The thing is, if she paid you a good some of money to take the credit and you accepted? Shut the fuck up already. You're a clown to come out months later and want writes. People sell songs and writing credits ALL the fucking time, once you get that check...go 'on head and RELEASE it. Shit.

It is sad that nothing can be

It is sad that nothing can be done to stop this. Greed is something else boy. not just with beyonce, but just entertainment industry in general.

personally, i am aware that

personally, i am aware that hurt can make you write such things from the blues about people you once worked for and who fired you. its clear that this person is hurting badly. i feel bad about that if its true and hope you get on with life. i am also aware that you can hate a person so much or be so envious you manufacture lies about them because you know that though they command respect they are not perfect...no man is. i love BEyonce and uhm, i am unhappy about this. but i love her. and hope she tells us what's up with these rumors.besides, even a good song can come out bad, with the wrong voice. i hardly look @/bother about who wrote! it just who sang it! hope its BEy!

brownsugar: damn! beyonce

brownsugar: damn! beyonce have some loyal fans!!!! Looks to me like Beyonce has some LOYAL HATERS. Who else would write novels calling her out of her name but haven't spoken a word to her a day in her life. At least fans have a reason to type that much, they actually like the artist, purchase their music, and who Beyonce tries to connect with in song and concert. They on the other hand type out screenplays of their dislike, that is reminiscent of a psychopath patient. Tell me who ends up looking worse? Obviously the haters who can't control their temper on a topic that isn't even confirmed,and is sent in through a lying random a.ss email.

You are all haters...ppl

You are all haters...ppl always look for ways to bring someone good down....if the "songwriters" claim their wrote Bey song then they should bring a law suit against her and if they sold the song writing rights to Bey they should shut the hell up....Remember ppl this is all gossip and rumors and nothing is proving so don't hate on bey!

If you read the letter it

If you read the letter it says Beyonce bought the rights and then took credit. So if the writer sold the rights to her then it is hers to do with what she likes. I am not a big Beyonce fan but if there was a deal made and all parties agreed then you can't cry later, and let's be real who is realy strongarming songwriters let me find Daddy Knowles is the next Suge Knight.

and to the people talking

and to the people talking about black people bringing down other black ppl LOOK AT YOURSELVES!! bey stans bring down rihanna every day.. is she not black..should we not try to bring her and others up as well.. u people are all one sided.. most of the people who are are saying we should not be tearing down beyonce are the same ones doing it to other black artists to bring up their favorite.. -- now i dont know how true this article is.. but other writers have mentioned that beyonce doesnt write her own songs..or may replace a word and get writing credits...rumours have been swirling around for years..but someday the truth will come out and all those who have been blinded will see..
dont hate me cause my opinion is not yours's picture

Kim KP: Yada Yada Yada,

Kim KP: Yada Yada Yada, Blah Blah Blah…… Who the hell doesn’t put their name on as the writer even if they changed be to we….I mean cmon people let it go…The girl sings the songs, works her ass off (literally) dancing to it, makes the videos and promotes her butt off on every continent and in every city just to make a buck…Please tell this angry , bitter person who cannot even reveal their name (which should say something right there) to please get a damn life! Signed, Bey Fan 4 Lyfe!! you defend her now.. but its people like u who bring down other artists for the same thing... y make excuses for bey but put down other artists.. its not right!! stop putting bey on a fricken pedestal.

On a music front. Many artist

On a music front. Many artist today do the same as Beyonce's doing. If you're a starving writer trying to get on then you have to take what you can get, in the beginning, until you make your name. It seems to have been more prevalent in the last 10 years or so than ever. You don't have many artist who are doing it all. Only a handful like Alicia Keys, Vivian Green, Kelley Price(who wrote a lot for Puffy back in the day a well as her own records), MaryMary write their own records. It's the same on the guys. Beyonce has the name and as an up and coming writer, you don't have much say sometimes, if you want to get on a project. Sad but true.

wooow...another american

wooow...another american completely brainwashed by images and glitz and glam. beyonce is no different than the so called entertainers "drugged up and pregnant." she's shaking her ass for money just like everybody else. she's stealing other people's songs AND ideas. Single Ladies video concept...rip off of Bob Fosse...If I Were a Boy orginally written and recored by BC Jean (who wasn't even aware that she'd been ripped off until AFTER "B's" version came out). The list goes on. She can sing, dance, and sway millions to follow her. people practically worship this crap...sad. Veronica: stop being jealous of Bey. She’s rich you’re not and you are on a gossip site and you act like this was announced in church. This chick mad she got fired. Bey isn’t the only artist work for Sony. Why single Beyonce out and not say anything about other artist. Sounds like some tired story that has been going around and she is using Beyonce to get her story out there. Beyonce didn’t get you fired. And you Beyonce is doing much better than you and you mad. You should have stayed in school or majored in something else to get you some money. All this Beyonce hate ain’t hurting Bey one bit. Madonna, Britney Spears, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, while all you beeches hating, They still selling out crowds and making more money than you will ever see.They ain’t thinking about what you are saying. They clowned Michael jackson and lied on him constantly.You sound like the normal black on black hater. Boo Bye girl with all this Bey hate. I’m a stan of talent and entertainers that not in jail or drugged up and not knocked up by Lil Wayne just to get money.

I like Beyonce, but when I

I like Beyonce, but when I heard that chil' speak for the first time, I had enough sense to figure out she was not writing shit. No disrespect, like I said, I like Beyonce as an entertainer, but she ain't sharp enough or 'feeling' enough to write the songs she sings...especially the ones on this last CD.

Iris: Beyonce gave Neyo

Iris: Beyonce gave Neyo credit for his songwriting on B’Day, even before Irreplaceable came out. I remember seeing her on MTV prior to the release of B’Day, and she mentioned Neyo and few other people that helped her write the album. Yes, there is footage of Beyonce behind the scenes while making B’Day, and she talks about the songwriting team that assisted her with the album.Melody counts as songwriting, not only lyrics.When Beyonce said she wrote Irreplaceable. It was only one time in concert. She was just trying to have some interaction with the crowd. She said something like, “I wrote this song for the ladies.” I hate when people try to act like she said this in some major publication or tv appearance. Technically, Beyonce can say she wrote Irreplaceable because writing melodies counts as songwriting. If anybody really cared, they could go look at the CD booklet and see Neyo’s real name on the song. Again, she had publically given Neyo credit a few times before the album came out. Beyonce hasn’t had a lot of lawsuits against her. I think 3 to be exact. It’s funny to me how people never point out the lawsuits brought against Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey or white artists, etc…I guess their half whiteness or whiteness makes people less suspect of them. Because we all know that white equals goodness. SMH.Well, the first two lawsuits brought against Beyonce the judge didn’t find any similarities between Beyonce’s songs and the plantiffs’. I know with one of the plantiffs this woman had sued a ton of people, and she was never proven to have previously written any of the artists’ songs that she claimed. The point is anybody can file a lawsuit. It doesn’t mean it’s valid. The third lawsuit was more against Sony because they didn’t secure the rights to use the Desiree song for Beyonce. It didn’t have anything to do with songwriting. It was more a record company slip up not securing the rights to use a song.I admired MJ as artist so much. But people seem to think that he wrote everything by himself. You need to check the credits and know like even on Thriller that Quincey Jones and Rod Temperton made huge contributions.Beyonce speaks fine to me. She pretty much comes across like all celebrities. Plus, many people aren’t the best public speakers. A person can be shy and hate speaking in front of people. I guess that would be magnified if I knew I was speaking to millions of people at any given time. It doesn’t mean the person isn’t smart or artistically gifted. Maybe they’re just better putting pen to paper.Because some of you’re talking about how Beyonce speaks but what about MJ. He didn’t come across as extremely articulate in front of cameras. Beyonce is a much better public speaker than MJ was. Yet you think that he wrote all these great songs by himself. I’m not trying to reflect negatively on MJ. Because just like Beyonce, I feel like they’re both intelligent and extremely gifted people. I just know that everybody has strengths and weaknesses.All this songwriting crap started because some white racist writer got mad because Beyonce won the ASCAP Songwriter of the Year Award. He was just angry that Beyonce was the only black woman to do it, and the second youngest person to do it. So he wanted to discredit her songwriting ability. It’s a shame that black blogs would keep running with such negativity against one of own. If anything, you should be helping Beyonce clear her name. But it just seems like black people only know how to hate on other black people. What a shame. Oh Lord - were you wearing a "I love Beyonce" t-shirt when you wrote this post. DAMN!!!!!

Not a shocker. This reminds

Not a shocker. This reminds me of the time Neyo put Beyonce on blast for Irreplaceable. She would tell evryone that she wrote that song with a straight and not give credit to anyone else. It may not seem like a big deal but to go out your way to say you write your songs but that makes me wonder what else do you lie about??? That's the bigger question.

Well of course she did not write most of the songs on this album for example there are three that she did not write on the I am... part: Smash into you originally Smack into you, Halo originally written for Leona, If I were a Boy written by some lady named Billy Jean or something I could have that last one wrong. Point being that she did purchase the wrights to the songs now they are hers regardless if she wrote them or not. We all know that she collaborated with other writes/producer i.e neo, the dream etc for the Sasha Fierce part. The point is in Song writting or singing one does not always have to write the songs example luther, whitney, patti label, TLC, etc it is how well they sing the songs. At this point in the game those who should worry about song writting are these lame rappers. Beyonce is so careful on what she sings about she does not want anyone to actually know if it is from personal experince or from a point of view she is singing. Once she grows as an artist she will be able to write about her pain in her relationship or lack of there of such as Janet and Mariah have been able to . She will have to woman up and reveal more of herself to us in order to keep progressing with that being said she does not actually have to write anything she can pay for it and perform it. All is well in Business and artistry that is the music business at its best

Duh! When has anyone ever

Duh! When has anyone ever seen Bey with a damn pen in her hand writing anything? This has been a topic for years and if I were fired from SOny, I would be telling it too. Too bad, ppl like Natasha and other BEy stans wouldn't agree or question it... I don't see the point in telling this now, as it is obvious, the girl does not write a thing, but hey, better late than never I guess! Tell 'em why you mad son! LOL

Boy I tell you, B's camp sure

Boy I tell you, B's camp sure knew which demographic to target to help get her to where she is. These YOUNG KIDS will defend Beyonce to the end, give their right arm, or last breath and the girl could be DEAD WRONG. With that being said, I wouldn't be surprised if Beyonce didn't write some of the songs she claims to have written. The thing is, if it comes out that this is true, it's not going to be pretty at all. There's something not right in that camp. I just feel like the more they try to cover up to make Beyonce look good, the more dirt they're doing behind closed doors. IF Beyonce is claiming something that's not rightfully hers the truth will come to light. There are sparks of truth coming out now from people who some think are just mad or bitter. But when the junk really hits the fan, NOBODY is going to be able to stop it not even Matthew Kowles.

Yeah we didn't even need to

Yeah we didn't even need to argue about that...WE (anybody breathing with a brain) knows Beyonce doesn't write most of the shht she claims. Ive read the song credits where her name was no where mentioned and Ive seen her say she wrote the song. Laughable!

Actually Neyo has sued

Actually Neyo has sued Bey...google it ppl. Bey can't even discuss the theme of her own albums. I saw an interview she did in Singapore I was so embarassed on her behalf. She said when she comes to Singapore ppl cant speak English but they know her songs. The thing is SINGAPORE is an on English Colony. Anyone, that she will interact with will speak English.They have one of the best business schools in the world. The Cabbie in Singapore speak better English than NYC Taxi driver. So, she is off her head and talking rubbish. I lived in Singapore so I know what I am talking about. She said she was privately educated ...SHE BETTER go sue them and get her money. I just read something yesterday about Bey so I do not wanna hate the chick too much...however, she should keep it real. Stop stealing songs, dances routines, costume ideas. Bey you have money you can go another direction. Good bless u. Bey u can change and be very happy.

BoyG3nius: Why does

BoyG3nius: Why does everyone have a problem with how Beyonce speaks? She’s not trying to be a English teacher, she’s not trying to sell you a novel. And fact is, you don’t have to be a literary genius to string some words together to make a hit song. Beyonce does write her songs and anyone willing to give their soul up for a song they can’t claim need to re-evealuate their morals and self respect.Checkmate. So let me get this straight......You have to be an English teacher or a novelist to hold a decent conversation. The only thing people are trying to say is that a person who does not speak well, USUALLY, (not always), does not write well. ISongwriting is more than just stringing a list of owrds together....the song has to make sense. I really like Beyonce, because she is talented and gorgeous, but I don't think she honestly writes her songs. People will continue to buy her records of course and that's good for them. My money is not going in anybody's pocket, much less a dishonest person's pocket....so if she is taking ownership of something that is not her's, she needs more than just a moral and self-respect evaluation.

Well, if some of you ppl had

Well, if some of you ppl had a proper education and where Academics you will know that Plagiarism, is SERIOUS. It shows fraud and if ppl encourage this type of behaviour then you are part of the Problem. Don't get me wrong I am not a goodie to shoes. Elvis, Rolling Stones and The Beatles stole songs from Black artist in America. These artist died and where forgotten.Their artistic brilliance was never celebrated in black history.Its important for people of colour to honor creative members of our society.Some where paid off with $30 some got $300 most did not get a penny. So, when u... the Fans do not care and say NEXT you really show your IGNORANCE. If you, THE fans are not appauled about someone stealing a song it shows your stupidity and it shows that OUR black society is in ruins with NO moral compass. You have no moral boundaries. You are in fact morally handicapped. Many ppl in the business do not have Chester Arthur Burnett aka Howlin Wolf's COMMON SENSE to protect their art, get educated and spend money wisely. so NOTHING IS permanent...80million can go very quickly. One more thing...I am actually surprised that A LOT of -ve information is out and about about Bey. I wonder if her husband as anything to do with this. She is very careful about her media image. Yeah, I knew she didn't write some of the songs...Sorry for TYPO's
