Beyonce Lip-Synched the National Anthem and Other News

Beyonce made a big show of ripping out her ear piece (1:20 mark, video below) when she sang the National Anthem at Barack Obama’s Inauguration yesterday, but it was all for show, because she was actually lip-synching to a pre-recorded track. Page Six says:

Beyonce Knowles’ flawless performance of “The Star Spangled Banner” at the inauguration was entirely lip-synched — a rep for the United States Marine Band revealed that she decided to perform to a pre-recorded track at the last minute.

The news will surely shock those who watched the emotional performance. At one point, Beyonce even dramatically removed her earpiece – which now seems even more ludicrous, as she wasn’t even making any noise.

Of course the singing was fake. Just like her hair, and her skin color, and her nose and her boobs and her marriage and her pregnancy. The only thing real in the above photo is Joe Biden’s apparent heartburn.
