Stars Stand Up for Beyonce, Lip Sync Scandal

by at . Comments

With the Beyonce lip-sync scandal gaining momentum, a trio of stars come out in support of the singer - who has also silently staged her own online-based defense.

The artist - who pre-recorded her national anthem performance at Monday's Presidential Inauguration - Tweeted the following photo last night of her in the studio, pretty much telling the public:

Hey, it may not have been live... but I DID sing the song dammit.

Meanwhile, the following singers spoke out yesterday in response to the controversy:

LeAnn Rimes (on Jimmy Kimmel Live): "I'm actually taking up for her on this one. There are times when people will ask you to do it, and they will not let you do it unless you do it because they want control over what happens."

Jennifer Lopez (on The Daily Show): "In certain venues and stuff, they do prerecord things, because you're going to have that terrible slapback... All performers do have to do it at some point."

Steven Tyler (to TMZ): "Beyonce's so hot she can do anything. Let's just get real."

What do YOU think? Do you think less of Beyonce for lip-synching the anthem on such a big stage?

leave her alone she did great it was her song it was cold


Beyonce didn't sing because she was afraid of screwing up or her voice isn't up to snuff without synthesizer. The excuse for lip singing is they have intense dance routines. Which was not the case. And j lo's excuse of slap back could have been valid had Kelly clarkson not proved her wrong. Let's be real as a SINGER your paid to sing. Also Beyonce was originally supposed to perform live because they had a symphony there but changed her mind before the performance.


So she lip synced. BFD. She's still a great artist and performer and this does not make one iota of difference. Stop h8ing on B and give her a break.
