Beyonce is a total bad ass.
She is not a wallflower, she is not a talentless Milli Vanilli lip-syncher, she is the one and only Beyonce. And this awesome diva pulled out her inner Sasha Fierce at a press conference in New Orleans in support of her upcoming Super Bowl performance.
After taking the stage, Beyonce asked the audience to rise. She then, as People Magazine reported, pulled out a ” flawless, live rendition” of the national anthem. After she wowed the media with her singing she said, “Any questions.” Yes, Beyonce. I have a question. How do you continue to be so awesome!
The superstar also addressed her critics amid the brouhaha that resulted in the revelation that she had utilized the popular lip-synching option when performing at President Barack Obama’s inauguration, a topic that was discussed by the Times to the The Today Show. Beyonce explained what happened and proved her awesomeness by singing the National Anthem in front of the assembled media.
“I am a perfectionist,” she said. “One thing about me, I practice until my feet bleed. I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra. It was a live television show. It was a very important emotional show for me, one of my proudest moments.”
“Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound check,” she continued. “I did not feel comfortable taking a risk. It was about the President, the Inauguration. I wanted to make him and my country proud, so I decided to sing along to my pre-recorded track, which is very common in the music industry.”
“I’m very proud of my performance,” and then the reporters, generally a serious and stoic bunch, broke into applause.
