Fart_Machine: Worst scandal ever!

TommyymmoT: It was too cold to sing well. Your vocal chords tighten up, and trying to reach some of those notes at that temperature, had the potential to damage her voice.Many professional singers I know, won't even drink anything cold before they sing, and some even gargle warm water.
Linux_Yes: lip sync or not, she still sang it.
Jackson Herring: trey101: [cdn-www.i-am-bored.com image 596x628]woman is about as deep as a puddle.... "who run the world?"oh my god those things are so un farking believably stupidlet me just cherry pick a particular wordy voice from a song that I like, and the chorus of a song that I don't like, and then make picture of words dot text
Kibbler: 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.
oldfarthenry: I have a sad confession to make - half of my flatulence in the office is pre-recorded.I make the motions and subtlety hit the play button on my computer - then I wave some rotten cheese around to simulate the flatus stench.I'm sorry and apologize.
oryx: Of course Beyonce lip synched, If she sang live, it might just possibly reveal she can't sing at all.
Soup4Bonnie: Surool: So, in your reality people only went to the inauguration to hear Beyonce perform?Surool: So, had Beyonce not been there, nobody would have attendedYou keep putting the same words in my mouth. Your absolutes are dishonest. I never said "nobody would have attended". I have said some were probably only there to see a celebrity trick them into thinking she had just performed a great piece when it was actually pre-recorded in a studio.But keep on going with No Beyonce, No Inauguration as if I had said that. After the third time, maybe someone can draw a Venn diagram for you.
Jackson Herring: of course by voice I mean verse
Surool: Anyone who would go to all the trouble and expense of attending a presidential inauguration and b*tch about a singer who was there is a complete tool.
Soup4Bonnie: Surool: Anyone who would go to all the trouble and expense of attending a presidential inauguration and b*tch about a singer who was there is a complete tool.The biatching is about the not-singer.
LiquidTester: Maybe she was too busy getting beat by Chris Brown to memorize the lyrics.

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.
Dr Dreidel: 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.
bradkanus: 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.
TomD9938: Why not just sing the song?No one cares if you miss a note here or there./ You too Whitney
Shae123: Surool: So?She fears her natural voice in front of amillion people....an entertainer, not a singer.
rnld: Dr Dreidel: rnld: PawisBetlog: trey101: woman is about as deep as a puddle.... "who run the world?"Brutal.We need to bring back songs like do wah diddy or da do do do, da dah dah dah dah.That song is actually surprisingly deep:Poets, priests and politiciansHave words to thank for their positionsWords that scream for their submissionAnd no one's jamming their transmission'Cos when their eloquence escapes youTheir logic ties you up and rapes you// compared to "who run the world? girls" - not much subtlety in that, is there?Unless you get the reality of who run the world.
Mikey1969: 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.
