She'd never have to fake it for me...

... because I'd never make her sing in Washington D.C. in the middle of January. :P
 
2013-01-22 01:19:34 PM
so does Michelle.
 
2013-01-22 01:20:10 PM
it's less about the President and more about her and her image.  I don't like the President, but this really has nothing to do with him.

O'er the land of the free!
And the home of the not brave enough to sing in the cold!

I'd still let her have sex with me...

"We pre-recorded all music as a matter of course and have done since time immemorial," she said.

It's true.  I heard George Washington had a mixtape made just in case the fife and drum corps didn't show up.

So?

This will be Obama's Benghazi.
 
2013-01-22 02:50:57 PM
If I recall, the entire orchestra faked it for the 2009 inauguration. It's not a big deal.
 
2013-01-22 02:52:06 PM
Well, she's an artist. You can't expect her to just perform when scheduled.

Worst scandal ever!

decided last minute.... that she'd choke.

This is an outrage. Well, no, actually it is absurdly trivial.
 
2013-01-22 02:56:33 PM
Still no cure for Beyonce.

// more overexposed than every Instagram pic combined
// she's hot, though - maybe if she just...didn't sing?
// YOU'RE NOT OPRAH, YOU'LL NEVER BE OPRAH!
// you'll be lucky to be Tyra Banks, honey

Is there anything not fake about Fartbongo? Other than the drones

I'm not voting for Beyonce after this.

red5ish: This is an outrage. Well, no, actually it is absurdly trivial.


I think it's pretty farked up that she'd rather look good than sing well and is still adored by the public.

Hell, she faked a whole pregnancy.

God, I love that man. We need to abolish the 22nd Amendment.

Is there anything not fake about Beyonce? She wore a plastic bubble under her clothes to make herself look pregnant.
 
2013-01-22 03:10:01 PM
Im glad she lip synced the song. How bad would it have looked if she had screwed up the words.

/It happens, a lot. You can know the song since childhood but having to sing it in front of several hundred thousand people AND the President could cause anyone to screw up

Lionel Mandrake: "We pre-recorded all music as a matter of course and have done since time immemorial," she said.

It's true.  I heard George Washington had a mixtape made just in case the fife and drum corps didn't show up.


The heavenly choir of seraphim and cherubim were all autotuned.
 
2013-01-22 03:10:22 PM
Why not just sing the song?

No one cares if you miss a note here or there.

/ You too Whitney

This means Grover Norquist is automatically Pope and Fartbongo has to sell AR-15s to Milli Vanilli, right?
 
2013-01-22 03:18:07 PM
Faked it in front of the world:

Nice comparison. Now let's do apples and oranges.

I feel like Beyonce is trying to be Oprah - voice of a generation, role model for (young|black|women) people, moral arbiter, media icon. Tyra Banks was also (post-modeling career) trying to be Oprah.

Not only will Beyonce never be Oprah, she'll never even get to the Oprah level that Tyra did (I'd say Tyra barely merits a "Stedman fart" on the scale of "1-Oprah").
 
2013-01-22 03:20:29 PM
Honest question. Is there anybody here who would call themselves a fan of her music? To each his own, de gustibus non est disputandum, etc. But I genuinely can't understand an adult listening to her.

The "Star Spangled Banner" is a shiatty national anthem: stupid lyrics and hard to sing. "America the Beautiful" should be our choice.
 
2013-01-22 03:22:33 PM
You're invited then you better try to sing a bit.
 
2013-01-22 03:23:22 PM
As I understand it, they have every artist pre record so that if the sound system gets farked up, it doesn't cut out on National TV. IIRC, the sound they play at the event itself is still the real deal. They did the same thing with Yo Yo Ma last time around, there was some stupid outrage article in the tabloids over that too.

Soup4Bonnie: Well, she's an artist. You can't expect her to just perform when scheduled.


It's standard for everyone in live situations like this, period. It's not a "pampered artist" thing, its a business thing. In something this big, a screwup is a LOT of money and embarrassment. Hell, they even lip sync on SNL, and that's nowhere the size of a Presidential Inauguration.

We need to bring back songs like do wah diddy or da do do do, da dah dah dah dah.

Pretend singing. Serious business.

Pre-recorded music in cold weather at an inauguration?

It could never happen.
