Beyonce Promises Not To Lip Synch At The Super Bowl Because For Some Reason That MattersBy Travis Woods
If you can recall, on January 21, during the ceremony celebrating the inauguration of Barack Obama for his second term as the President of the United States, it somehow became a news item that Beyonce had lip synched her performance of the Star-Spangled Banner (because, you know, Obama being reelected wasn’t news or anything). And so, and panicked and trembling nation had to know: will Beyonce lip synch at this year’s Super Bowl as well? Will she once again betray us all?
According to Beyonce, the answer is no. After going through a show off-y version of the Star Spangled Banner during a press conference today (because she assumed we all thought she couldn’t sing?), Beyonce assured a shaky, nervous America that she would indeed be singing live during her entire Super Bowl halftime performance:
“I will absolutely be singing live. I am well-rehearsed. I will absolutely be singing live, and this is what I was born to do.”
Further, she insisted that the choice to lip synch during the inauguration came due to technical issues:
“I am a perfectionist, and one thing about me, I practice until my feet bleed. And I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra… Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound-check, I did not feel comfortable taking a risk.”
She also noted that she was “very proud” of her ability to make her mouth move along to a prerecorded track.
