“I’m very proud of my performance.”[HP]

Not sure if I’m buying this one, but Beyonce has finally come clean and admitted to lip synching the national anthem at President Obama’s inauguration last week because (wait for it) she’s a perfectionist. Okay….

Her official explanation, as given to the media during a Super Bowl press conference, was, “Due to no proper sound check, I did not feel comfortable taking a risk. It was about the president and the inauguration, and I wanted to make him and my country proud, so I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track, which is very common in the music industry. And I’m very proud of my performance.”

Uh huh. She is slated to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl this weekend, where she promises she will be singing live . . . which begs the question: just how perfect does she plan on being then?

'I'm very proud of my performance.' it's not a performance if you really don't sing. What a lame excuse. I hope she falls on her fat ass at the SB halftime show.

Isn't Alicia Keys singing the National Anthem for the Super Bowl? Beyonce is doing the half time show.

She thinks she's royalty, so annoying.

She sang it yesterday at a news conference.  It's a non-story, she explained why she did it, get over it.  I can't believe the inane shit Americans get worked up about.
