I didn’t think she had it in her… Beyonce Knowles admitting the truth!! But when the evidence is piled that high against you, might as well throw your cards on the table. Beyonce did just that during the Super Bowl Press Conference, but first she belted out the National Anthem live so there would be no doubt that she can sing. Ok, Whatever Bey. Your credibility and likeability is holding on by a string with ME. Hear Beyonce put the STANK on the National Anthem after the break.
After a round of applause by the media in attendance, the singer took questions about her upcoming Super Bowl gig as well as her controversial lip syncing of “The Star-Spangled Banner” at President Obama’s second inauguration last week.
“I am a perfectionist. One thing about me, I practice until my feet bleed, and I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra,” Beyoncé said. “It was a live television show and a very, very important, emotional show for me – one of my proudest moments. Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound check, I did not feel comfortable taking a risk. It was about my president and the inauguration, and I did not want to take away from that. I decided to go with a pre-recorded track, which is very common in the music industry. And I am very proud of my performance.”
Beyoncé added that she will be “absolutely singing live” at her Super Bowl performance this coming Sunday. “I am well rehearsed. I will absolutely be singing live. This is what I was born to do.”
Strong words from a woman who 2 paragraphs back had a million reasons as to why she couldn’t sing live for her President. Let me go ahead and call a Spade a Spade. Kelly Clarkson got up there, sang live, and scared Bey. Bey started fidgeting in that Pucci gown. “Jay, what should I do. I don’t wanna mess up.”
“Play the track.” And the rest is messy history.
