Pop stars sing over tracks as "live" in scenarios with questionable weather? And people are acting shocked about this? I have a bridge to sell.

More like: "NYPOST claims Chuck Schumer wants an apology from Beyonce..."


It was clear the senator did not want to talk about the debacle to us, the NYPOST

FTFY NYPOST.

Here's how it went down:

NYPOST: "Hi. NYPOST here. Has Beyonce apologized to you yet?"
Schumer (thinking to self): "Oh FFS. Not the NYPOST. Fark these asshats. Why the hell are they even asking about this stupid shat?"
Schumer (on phone): "I have not heard from her before, during or after. She did not talk to me at all. I didn't say any words to her, period."

How it's reported: "The New York senator angrily admitted yesterday that the pop queen has not called him to say sorry after she turned last week's inaugural bash into an unexpected Milli Vanilli concert by lip-syncing "The Star-Spangled Banner."

When will Congress find a way to waste money on this by holding a hearing?

Schumer was asked a question and responded, essentially, by saying "I don't know and I don't give two farks about it." Somehow dumbassmitter interprets this as wanting an apology.

"I couldn't tell," he said, "I only saw her from the back."

And a glorious view it was.

And besides, we already have conclusive proof that she was lip-syncing.

This.

NYP calls up the senator's office, ask a "Have you stopped beating your wife?" question about Beyonce.

Senator, being a, you know, SITTING SENATOR, doesn't have time for this nonsense.

NYP Reports: Why does Schumer not want to talk about Beyonce? Is he participating in a MASSIVE COVER-UP? We're just asking the question.

\\\That's some real TMZ-level journalism there, Post. Although, I'm not sure what I expected.....

Manufactured story. End of story.

You'd be amazed and possibly disappointed at how many performers do this. Ever wonder how singers are touring more and more well into their old age?

I think Beyonce' owes somebody SOMETHING.

Dammit, if you're "a singer" and someone asks you to "sing" at a live event, then that person and everyone else should reasonably expect "singing" sounds will emanate from your mouth, audible through a loudspeaker system, AT THE TIME OF that event.

If she wasn't planning to sing, she should have just sent a cardboard cut-out of herself, so we'd have a visual representation to go with the aural representation of a live performance.

That's how I read it. Controversy manufactured by the scribbler from start to finish. Gotta sell some ads and pay the bills.
 
2013-01-28 02:49:02 PM  
Even Roseanne didn't lip-sync.
 
2013-01-28 03:07:08 PM  
'pop' singers are generally not real artists. They don't write their own music, or even craft their own image and persona. Expecting them to behave as muscians is silly.

And really, who cares?

Huck And Molly Ziegler: I think Beyonce' owes somebody SOMETHING...


Will you call Yo Yo Ma and Izthak Perlman out for doing the same thing in 2009? Pops

Temp extremes Fark with instruments - regardless of whether the instrument is made of wood, metal or meat. When you see a concert rider and think the singer is being pissy about room temp drinks pre-performance, think again.

Did anyone else notice Kelly Clarkson sounded farking awful when she first began singing, then had a decent finish as her vocal cords warmed up? There wasn't enough Throat Coat Tea in DC to get Beyonce's throat in normal singing condition against the cold until she was halfway through. I'm not going to fault her choice.

And can you really blame them? I mean, we as a country can be absolutely merciless when it comes to trivial shiat like this (see: this "controversy"). Would you want to be remembered as the singer or musician who farked up at the inauguration?

You sound outraged.

Oh Chucky. The guy bullies himself into speaking rolls all the time. He strong-armed his way into giving a second commencement speech at my college graduation, luckily Howard "YEAAAAAAHHHH" Dean was much more eloquent (and invited). He did the same thing for the law school, but they had the balls to boo him off stage and make him throw a mini hissy fit.
