Beyonce lip sync

The NY Post put together this video clip comparing Beyonce’s tragic lip sync fail at President Obama’s 2nd Inauguration to her live a capella version at a scheduled press conference in New Orleans on Thursday (Jan. 31).

Many wonder why Beyonce thought it was necessary to prove she can sing the National Anthem. From what I hear, Beyonce was unhappy that people thought she sang to a prerecorded track because she couldn’t remember the words.

Beyonce also promised to perform live during halftime of Super Bowl 47 at the Superdome in New Orleans on Sunday.

Beyonce sings National Anthem at Superdome

In an attempt to silence her critics, Beyonce performed the National Anthem live at a scheduled press conference at the Superdome in New Orleans today. The impromptu performance wasn’t as spectacular as her pre-recorded lip-sync fiasco at President Obama’s Inauguration. But Beyonce did manage to draw a smattering of applause when she was done.

Last month, President Barack Obama flew cross country to personally share in the grief of the parents who lost their children in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook school shooting.

In the hours following the shooting death of a 15-year-old girl who danced for him at his Inauguration, the president and First Lady Michelle Obama released this statement:

“The president and first lady’s thoughts and prayers are with the family of Hadiya Pendleton.”

Beyonce can I live

Last week I told you that the first lady Michelle Obama is reportedly “furious” at singer Beyonce for upstaging her husband President Obama during his finest hour. The Obamas were so miffed at Beyonce’s attention-seeking behavior that she politely asked the Carters not to attend the Inaugural Ball.

What Beyonce Really Sang at Inauguration

Thanks to the sharp folks over at for stripping Beyonce’s real vocals from the pre-recorded track she sang along with during President Obama’s Inauguration last weekend. Now that we’ve heard what Beyonce was really singing, we see that it was very necessary for her to lip-sync — she didn’t know the words to the National Anthem!

Beyonce even had the Obamas convinced that she knew all the words as she wailed “Your old black doll can’t touch my behind!”, “Stroking your swine”, and “La fway!” According to insiders, Beyonce mistakenly believed “The Star-Spangled Banner” and the “National Anthem” were two different songs. All in all it was a brilliant performance by the lip-sync queen. Watch the video after the break!

Aretha Franklin Jennifer Lopez Reuters

When word spread that Karaoke singer Beyonce wasn’t singing live during President Obama’s 2nd Inauguration, the blogosphere erupted in laughter and ridicule.

But surprisingly, one of the first people to jump to her defense was Soul legend Aretha Franklin, who said:

“I thought it was funny because the weather down there was about 46 or 44 degrees and for most singers that is just not good singing weather…” she told ABC News. “When I heard that I just really cracked up. I thought it was really funny, but she did a beautiful job with the pre-record.”

New York Post Beyonce Jay Z Peter King

This will sting Jay Z’s already bruised ego:

Rep. Pete King was snapping photos of the stars at Monday’s Inauguration – and wound up on the cover of the New York Post. The headline: “First Couple! (Well, almost) Pols fawn over Beyoncé, Jay-Z at Inaugural.”

In King’s defense, that’s only half true. The congressman tweeted Tuesday that while he recognized Beyoncé, who sang the National Anthem, he didn’t know “the guy” beside her.

    Beyonce Jay Z at Inauguration

    Beyonce was so beside herself at President Obama’s 2nd Inauguration that you would’ve thought her husband Jay Z was being sworn in as president. Not one to let an opportunity to show off pass her by, Beyonce snapped photos from inside her hotel room, inside the limo on her way to perform the National Anthem, and from the podium. And while every celebrity with a twitter account (including Bette Midler) gushed about Beyonce’s unique rendition of the National Anthem yesterday, Mr. Obama himself seemed less than impressed. Maybe that’s because he was outshined by 2 women at his own inauguration: his wife Michelle and Bey.

    It was an awkward looking kiss to say the least. Maybe that’s why President Obama’s eldest daughter, Malia, 14, ruined a photo of him kissing First Lady Michelle Obama during the 57th Inauguration ceremonies in DC yesterday (Jan. 21). HuffPost Senior Social Media Editor Kerstin Shamberg took a screen shot of the cute scene while watching CNN. The Obama’s youngest daughter Sasha, 11, attempted to take a photo of her parents’ odd looking peck on the lips, when Malia ruined the shot by poking her head in front of the camera. Much could be said about that strange peck from a body language standpoint, but I won’t go there this morning.
