Beyonce Will Sing Live at the Super Bowl, And She Admits She Fudged It At the Inauguration
At a Super Bowl press conference yesterday, BEYONCÉ admitted to fudging it at PRESIDENT OBAMA'S inauguration. But she didn't admit to straight-up lip-synching.
She said, "I am a perfectionist, I practice 'til my feet bleed, and I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra. It was a live television show, and a very very important, emotional show for me, one of my proudest moments. And due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound-check I did not feel comfortable taking a risk. It was about the president and the inauguration, and I wanted to make him and my country proud, so I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track, which is very common in the music industry and I'm very proud of my performance."

Beyoncé DID say that she'll be singing LIVE at the Super Bowl. She said, "I will absolutely be singing live. I am well-rehearsed, this is what I was born to do, what I'm born for." And she started off the press conference by singing the national anthem LIVE . . . maybe just to prove she could? (Here's video of that.)
One thing Beyoncé wouldn't do was admit that her halftime show will include a DESTINY'S CHILD reunion.
