Wendy Williams on Beyonce: ‘Sounds Like She Has a Fifth Grade Education’

Talk-show diva Wendy Williams is known for her sharp tongue, but this time she might have been too sharp with her opinion about Beyonce. According to Perez Hilton, Williams was overheard dissing Mrs. Carter during a recent taping of her show.

Apparently, when the topic of Beyonce’s upcoming HBO documentary was brought up, Williams criticized her for the way that she speaks. “I am a Beyonce fan,” she said. “I’m gonna watch her upcoming documentary because fortunately one of the TVs in our kitchen has closed captioning so I’ll be able to understand what she says. You know Beyonce can’t talk. She sounds like she has a fifth grade education.”

Now that wasn’t nice. Here at PopCrush, we believe in the old adage, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything.” But we understand that Williams is the gossip queen and doesn’t bite her tongue for anyone.

If you want to watch the incriminating evidence, click here and fast forward to the 15:00 mark.

We don’t think Beyonce nor her hubby Jay-Z will respond to Williams’ remark. Honestly, Beyonce can’t be that dumb, she’s a successful businesswoman and has secured several million-dollar deals on her own. So her mouthpiece must be on-point.

In the meantime, Beyonce will premiere her self-directing HBO documentary on Feb. 16. The film chronicles the R&B superstar’s eventful year of concert performances including her sold out shows in New York and Atlantic City, N.J. No word on how much of her personal life will be shown but expect some great musical performances.
