Beyoncé lipsynced, everything you know is a lie!

So remember how I went all out yesterday about how Beyoncé crushed it at President Obama’s Inauguration? Well, turns out I mean the exact opposite of that because she lipsynced the whole thing, which is really only appropriate when you’re a drag queen and not, say, Beyoncé at the friggin’ Inauguration.

“All music is pre-recorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day,” United States Marine Band rep Kristin DuBois told Page Six. “We performed, live, the band. But we received last-minute word that Beyoncé was going to use the pre-recorded vocal track. Those were the instructions we were given. We don’t know what the reason why.” The Washingtonian reports that “it was evident that the band wasn’t actually playing during the song.” Earlier, Beyoncé posted a photo to her Instagram account of herself holding the sheet music to “The Star Spangled Banner” in a recording studio. Beyoncé surprised viewers when she ripped out her earpiece mid-performance. But according to these reports, the earpiece was unnecessary in the first place.

Granted, if it was a condition that all singing had to be pre-recorded, that would be fine, except Kelly Clarkson reportedly sang live so … what the hell? It’s not like she can’t sing, so what the actual crap is going on here?
