Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Beyonce: Looks Good, Sounds Fake!

While Jennifer Hudson definitely sang live at the Inauguration Ball, as did Alicia Keys, there seems to be one diva that couldn’t be bothered with singing live for the President of the United States.

Enter fakery.
Enter backing tracks.
Enter Beyonce.

Beyonce is arguably at the top of the heap when it comes to today’s poptrix, but Adele or Lady Gaga she is not. At least when it comes to live performances. She has been accused the last couple of years of lip-syncing for her life for some of her biggest appearances. This weekend proved no exception as the diva took to the stage with a lace-front to die for, a dress worth my yearly income, and baubles that Lindsay Lohan would snatch if she had the chance. But the one thing Bey forgot to bring to the table?

Her live voice.

This goes towards the Britney Spears School of Performance: if you look good, who cares if you’re actually singing?!

Beyonce’s backing band has already come forward and stated they did not perform live. So now the world is waiting for Bey to bring her asses forward and tell the truth as we all know it to be! And if she does not, we will all be watching to see what she does at the Super Bow on February 3rd. Here’s betting a dozen House of Beyonce performs at the Inauguration of President Barack Obama Dereon pieces that this too will be a taped performance!

As the nation officially began President Barack Obama’s second term in office, the stars came out in full swing to provide plenty of wattage and support.

Beyonce and Jennifer Hudson both serenaded the POTUS and First Lady Michelle Obama, who stunned with newly shorn bangs in a Jason Wu gown. She completed the look with Jimmy Choo shoes and bling by Kimberly McDonald. Jennifer Hudson covered the Al Green classic ‘Let’s Stay Together’ and Alicia Keys changed the lyrics to her hit song ‘Girl on Fire’ to ‘Obama’s on Fire’.

In a ceremony also held in Washington, D.C., hip hop stars from the beginnings of the genre were honored for their contribution to the 2012 Olympics. The event, spearheaded by Russell Simmons honored such legends as Doug E. Fresh, and M.C. Lyte, who are considered the early pioneers of rap music. Also on hand were Yo Yo, Lil Mama and R&B singer John Legend.
