Did Biancé lip-synch the national anthem at Obama’s inaugural Monday? Frankly, I don’t care. She looked and sounded fabulous. Besides, it’s not like I paid for a ticket to a Biancé concert or something. I didn’t even watch the inaugural. But for those who do care, an article on Slate, “Beyoncé Wasn’t Lip-Syncing,” is pretty convincing. Then again, I don’t know diddly about singing and can’t carry a tune in a basket.
The media have devoted an incredible amount of time to this ridiculous lip-synch controversy, most of it just ignorant speculation. Such is the pathetic state of our media reporting these days. It’s possible they’ve devoted more time to Michelle Obama’s bangs, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
