In a largely meaningless admission that will undoubtedly cause conservative commentators to foam at the mouth, the White House has confirmed that Beyonce did indeed lip sync at President Obama’s inauguration. Via National Post:
“She did not sing live,” an inaugural official told CNN, adding that what audience members and home viewers heard was a pre-recorded version of the U.S. national anthem, which was sung by Beyonce.
“Because she didn’t have time to rehearse with the Marine Band, she decided to use her recording with the Marine Band,” the official explained, noting that her pre-recording of the song was “spot-on.”
I love that we’re talking about this. That must mean that the economy is fixed and North Korea isn’t missile testing, right?
Oh, never mind.
