All the celebrity worshiping news media are piling on the praise about Beyounce's news conference were she sang the National Anthem trying to justify her lip-syncing at the inaugural. First of all she did not sing it all that well at the news conference and like so many singers, she had all the embellishments which detract from the meaning of the song and are there just to try to show themselves off. Again she repeated that she did not have time to prepare for the inaugural because she was preparing for the Super Bowl. Yet she found time for the news conference and if she didn't have time to prepare for the inaugural, why did she agree to do it. She supposedly is a super star and professional, so if she signs on to do a job she should find time to prepare for it. She must have had plenty of warning about both jobs. I don't think Obama called her up two days before the inaugural and said, "hey Beyounce baby as a fellow super celebrity, I want you to sing the National Anthem at my inaugural." Not that he doesn't consider himself as a celebrity. So unlike the media, I was not impressed by her news conference.

actually i just read about this in thhe papers today and i am not impressed with ther singing over the media conference, it is like a damage control thing to prevent her popularity from going down. I mean, why lip-synching? You should be proud to sing it infront of the president of your country. It is plain arrogance in her part.

I was not impressed either by Beyounce, news conference it was just and excuse to cover up a tell a lie, for what she didn't do, I am not a fan of Beyounce, and I don't care how well she can sing, if she has this great voice, why didn't she use it like she always do, of was she too scared, and afraid she, was going to be a failer.
