FOXWith no background music, Beyonce belted out the “The Star-Spangled Banner” at a press conference about her upcoming Super Bowl performance. In a white long sleeve dress, the pop star walked out and kindly asked the media audience: “Will you all please stand?” Before taking any questions, Beyonce then performed the tune she admitted to lip-syncing at the President’s inauguration. “I am a perfectionist,” she explained. “And one thing about me: I practice ’till my feet bleed. I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra. It was a live television show… Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound check… I did not feel comfortable singing live.” Beyonce said she sang along to her own voice on a “prerecorded track.” She said for the Super Bowl she will “absolutely be singing live.”

This is absolutely the most cold-blooded diva move she could have pulled. Who pops out for a Super Bowl press conference and opens with a random and mandatory rendition of The Star Spangled Banner JUST to shut up their haters? Beyonce, apparently. “Stand and listen while I give the finger to my critics in flamboyant vibrato.” Ruthless.

Can’t imagine what her arguments at home must be like. “Sean, I know last week you said I didn’t pack the Blue Ivy’s bottles, so before you head down into your recording studio please watch this 40-minute video featuring forensic evidence and interviews I had the NYPD conduct proving my correctness in this matter.”
