Beyonce Sings (Sorta) to the President
In an incident that threatened to overshadow President Barack Obama's second-term inauguration, liberals and conservatives briefly agreed on one thing: Beyoncé lip-synced her rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner." After a social media outcry, Beyoncé finally admitted that, yes, she did use a prerecorded track, but only because the frigid Washington, D.C. temperatures in January would have affected her performance. "I am a perfectionist," Knowles said. In a press conference leading up to her Super Bowl halftime performance, Bey treated the press to a jaw-dropping rendition of the National Anthem, effectively ending this scandal.
