Beyonce Admits She Lip Synced the National Anthem

by Keith Koffler on January 31, 2013, 5:56 pm

She said she practiced until her feet bled, but decided to use the recording anyway.

I’m not sure how her singing caused her feet to bleed, but she should definitely have this checked out.

What I’m still trying to figure out is, if she wasn’t singing, why did she pull the earpiece out of her ear midway through the song? Was that to, say, GIVE US THE WRONG IMPRESSION?

Alright, enough writing. I might break an ankle.

Saw that in the Daily Mail earlier. Guess she wasn’t familiar with this little old
Chestnut we call the National Anthem guess she didn’t sing it as a child.

CiscoKid January 31, 2013 at 6:28 pm

Could happen. I listened to the briefing by Carney and my ears started to bleed.

Some made Hillary’s brain bleed–Jay?

She’s a fraud, just like the grifters in the White House, or as one of their after hours party guests called it – the “Black House”. The dumb broad described the inauguration as “…a live television show…”. Guess she thought she was starring in some reality show, rather than singing the National Anthem at a presidential inauguration. Should say co-starring because Mooch don’t like being upstaged by anybody. Did they even send Oprah an invitation to the coronation?

It was too cold, I didn’t get to practice with the orchestra, it was for the President, my feet hurt, I couldn’t find my coat and the dog ate my sheet music. Luckily, the sound people had my pre-recorded rendition handy, so that it was OK because a lot of people in the industry do the same thing.

Half-time at the SuperBowl should be really interesting.

Thank you Susan, that was perfect.

Burke January 31, 2013 at 7:24 pm

She always has been a fraud and a freeloader.

Julie Brueckheimer January 31, 2013 at 7:42 pm

This is a good metaphor for the lack of authenticity in contemporary America. Just wing it. Fudge. What difference does (the truth) make now? We’re all inured to lies and deceit, and as a pro football coach once told his team, “If you’re not cheating, you’re not trying hard enough.”

MichelleIndependent January 31, 2013 at 11:55 pm

Beyonce is a self-important fraud.

RickW February 1, 2013 at 5:50 am

“until my feet bled”……I’ve gotta write that one down. Damm……….

Just2old February 1, 2013 at 7:19 am

That makes no sense. Maybe the dancing part of the national anthem?

RickW February 1, 2013 at 7:49 am

Maybe its a lead up to a Super Bowl ad for Dr Scholls that would play during her “performance”, J2?

Just2old February 1, 2013 at 9:22 am

Or, a lead-in to a feminine hygiene for the foot commercial.

Kelly Clarkson had no problems singing live …. in the cold ?

Keith Koffler February 1, 2013 at 11:22 am

And her feet didn’t even bleed.

cincycinco February 1, 2013 at 8:32 am

If she was having trouble with the words, couldn’t she have borrowed TOTUS from POTUS? Or maybe she was, and that’s what caused the problem. Let me explain;

It’s Obama’s TOTUS. The words are loaded by people who know him well, but they are not used to him loaning the equipment to anyone else. As a result, when he told them to display the National Anthem, they thought he meant HIS, which resulted in poor Beyonce having to read this;

Indonesia National Anthem Lyrics

Indonesia Raya

(Great Indonesia)

Original Bahasa Indonesia Words

Indonesia tanah airku,
Tanah tumpah darahku,
Disanalah aku berdiri,
Jadi pandu ibuku,
Indonesia kebangsaanku,
Bangsa dan tanah airku,
Marilah kita berseru:

“Indonesia bersatu!”

Hiduplah tanahku,
Hiduplah negeriku,

Bangsaku, Rakyatku semuanya.
Bangunlah jiwanya,
Bangunlah badannya
Untuk Indonesia Raya!


Indonesia Raya, merdeka, merdeka
Tanahku, negeriku yang kucinta
Indonesia Raya, merdeka, merdeka
Hiduplah Indonesia Raya

Indonesia! Tanah yang mulia,
Tanah kita yang kaya.
Disanalah aku berada
Untuk slamalamanya.
Indonesia, Tanah pusaka,
Psaka Kita semuanya.
Marilah kita mendoa,

“Indonesia bahagia!”

Suburlah Tanahnya,
Suburlah jiwanya,
Bansanya, Rakyatnya semuanya.
Sadarlah hatinya,
Sadarlah budinya
Untuk Indonesia Raya.


Indonesia! Tanah yang sutyi,
Tanah kita yang sakti.
Disanalah aku berdiri
Ndyaga ibu sedyati.
Indonesia! Tanah berseri,
Tanah yung aku sayangi.
Marilah kita berjanji:

“Indonesia abadi!”

Slamatlah Rakyatnya,
Slamatlah putranya,
Pulaunya, lautnya semuanya.
Majulah Begrinya,
Majulah Pandunya
Untuk Indonesia Raya.



Under the circumstances, then, perhaps she should be commended instead of insulted! Our National Anthem IS a little difficult (especially for Obama followers who don’t know it to begin with); but getting a totally unfamiliar one in Bahasa, all cold like that must have REALLY caused the girl some jitters! Maybe her feet were bleeding because she was clenching her toes so hard from sheer terror at the prospect of offending against the Angry Caliph…

JBH February 1, 2013 at 9:11 am

Stop writing now! I’m not sure if a broken ankle caused by excessive, derogatory writing of the soap opera at the White House is covered under ObamaCare.

Keith Koffler February 1, 2013 at 11:23 am

They’ll say it’s a pre-existing condition because I covered Clinton too.

Star February 1, 2013 at 10:57 am

Her fakey singing and belting faces were a riot–give her some credit! You know what? I don’t give a flip about her.

Keith Koffler February 1, 2013 at 11:24 am

That’s true, Star, it was quite a performance!

It is critical that women look presentable and neat within the workplace.
Brands and sources are enough; select the best that you really
need. You may be tempted to squeeze your feet into
shoes that are small or too big for you because you
cannot fit the right size in what you want.
