I don’t believe this story, but is sure makes for great water cooler talk.
“Over the last couple of months Beyonce’s career seems to be caught in a downward spiral. She released two very mediocre singles, Déjà vu and Ring the Alarm. Her fans created a petition criticizing her latest video. And just last week her album B-Day received terrible reviews.
Now it appears that Mathew Knowles is desperate to stop Beyonce’s star from falling any further. And it appears that his first order of business is nothing short of spectacular. _____ spoke exclusively with an insider at Sony BMG who claims that Knowles is trying to postpone the release of Beyonce’s sophomore album B-Day.
According to the record label insider, Knowles isn’t satisfied with the quality of the album, and wants to rework a number of tracks. The source tells, “he’s been relentlessly pressuring [Sony BMG] to postpone the release of the album for a couple of weeks now.” And he’s reportedly been using underhanded tactics to get his way. In what our tipster describes as a strong arm tactic, Mathew canceled a London tour designed to promote Beyonce’s album. And yesterday, the album was “mysteriously” leaked on several websites. Our source tells, “Mathew’s relentless … it’s only a matter of time before he gets his way.”
But postponing Beyonce’s album may be in the best interest of the booty-licious diva. And if Matthew Knowles has his way, Beyonce’s newly revamped album will be one of the hottest albums of the year. Along with the reworked tracks, ______ has learned that the new album will contain two new duets – one with latin sensation Shakira and the other with teen heartthrob Chris Brown.”
