Beyonce Knowles’ non-denial denial was lip-synced?
SO. Now we know. Beyonce Knowles did not sing The Star Spangled Banner at the President Barack Obama’s second term inauguration ceremony. Stood before the Super Bowl press, Beyonce pressed “play” on the tope of small, plain Chinese child’s head and told the media:
“I practice until my feet bleed and I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra. 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.”
Nice explanation. A sympathetic backstory, a dash or humility and a non-denial denial of miming. It’s a well-rehearsed explanation, and we commend her footwork. It’s Beyonce;’s hard luck that with a flu virus going around, no American opera singers were available.
Questions remain, however, on Obama, who is said to have been in thrall of a teleprompter, which is also made in China.
