BEYONCE: IN YOUR FACE
No lip sync, now recording, no Deer Antler Spray. Beyonce showed up for her press
conference on Thursday in New Orleans to discuss her upcoming performance during
halftime of the Super Bowl.
But she had some unfinished business to take care of first.
Beyonce asked everybody in attendance to stand up, then brought down the house
with her powerful rendition of the national anthem. When she was done, she simply said,
Game, set, match. Beyonce pretty much shut up all those critics who don't have a life
and slammed her for lip-syncing the national anthem during the Presidential Inauguration.
After the Lance Armstrong and Manti Te'o scandals, those critics and losers in Twittersphere
who felt duped once again, were putting Beyonce' on par with Milli Vanilli, the disgraced
singers who earned a Grammy-award with somebody else's voices. Right.
There is no denying Beyonce's talent. She is strong, powerful, and an original. Those
guys with the braids were just actors using the talent of somebody else.
As I mentioned in a previous blog, Beyonce showed she has brains, too. The conditions
during the inauguration weren't ideal for her. It was cold, windy, the sound system wasn't
to her liking, and she did not have adequate time to prepare with the military band. So,
she made a smart decision to use a pre-recording and mouthed the words.
It was her voice, her talent. Get a life. During the Super Bowl a few years ago, Christina
Aquilera muffed up the national anthem and she got vilified for it. All performances aren't
perfect, just ask the Atlanta Falcons. Aquilera has to live with the, "great, performer, but
tag." The but being, she screwed up in the Super Bowl in front of 100 million people.
Beyonce knew the event wasn't about her, it was all about Obama. She took the margin
of error completely out of it.
