T-Pain Hypocritically Tells Other Artists to Stop Using Auto-Tune

Auto-Tune era be gone!

It should have never, ever begun.

And I blame Cher for starting it.

I blame T-Pain for using it.

And I blame Akon, Diddy and Kanye for perpaintuating it.

Need further evidence?

Now, please, please put the plug-in down and trying something novel: learn how to sing…in tune! 

At the end of the “Can’t Believe It” remix, T-Pain says that Auto-Tune is almost up. What? Why would Pain, whose Thr33 Ringz debuts at #4 on next week’s Billboard albums sales chart, extinguish his signature sound now?

“Not for me,” Pain clarified, “for everybody else.” The singer — who told DJ Skee in a separate interview that artists such as Ron Browz have used the Auto-Tune effect poorly — told MTV News that his biters need to pay up. Hey, if Diddy can collaborate with Pain and pay him for using the Auto-Tune, so can you other guys.

“I gave T-Pain one point on my [upcoming] album for using the Auto-Tune,” Diddy revealed on Sunday night during “Total Finale Live.”

“Sign the papers,” advised Pain, who also worked on his friend Kanye West’s 808’s & Heartbreak. “Diddy actually gave me royalties on this album just for using Auto-Tune. He signed the contract and everything. If I can do that with Diddy, somebody else better be signing something. It’s Diddy. He didn’t have to involve me at all. … I’m writing and producing on his album, and he gave me extra royalties on top of that for using something I just brought back.”
