OBAMA URGED TO RESIGN OVER BEYONCÉ SCANDAL

A rising chorus of congressional Republicans are calling on President Obama to acknowledge that the pop singer Beyoncé lip-synched during his inaugural festivities on Monday and resign from office, effective immediately.

“By lip-synching the national anthem, Beyoncé has cast a dark cloud over the President’s second term,” said Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky). “The only way President Obama can remove that cloud is by resigning from office at once.”

While many in the media have blamed Beyoncé for the lip-synching controversy, Mr. Paul said, “We must remember that this happened on President Obama’s watch.”

28. Sorry mega rich entertainers and the Hollywood elite

 

shouldn't ever become a controversial end result to a Presidential inauguration. The politics of this should mean nothing.

When I first formed an opinion on this, I first viewed it as a few wealthy greedy Hollywood elite wishing to protect their own reputation while covering up the means of protecting it. How many concerts do they perform using recordings, and how many paying big money are not aware?

If they can't do what they claim they are doing, and instead give us a false impression they are doing something live, when they are not, they have no right doing it at all. It drives me nuts seeing this controversy being handed off to Obama's plate when it should remain on those who did it.

Hollywood is already over rewarded and much too rich for doing way too little of any serious worth. They lie too much, they pretend too much, and they deceive us. Instead of giving the public a multi-millionaire entertainer with private jets and multiple homes, they give us BS instead of transparency.

Call me whatever but there are certain fundamentals of government that I subscribe to and it is always about total honesty and transparency.

No wonder his ratings are off. It's like a rerun everyday. I wonder if Barstool Republicans ever wonder why nothing ever comes of all these "gates".

71. Joe Biden should have lip synched it, or maybe Michelle?

 

Are these people ever rational? NO!

77. Any rational discussion is impossible now

now that the satire has started.

The number of performers who pre-record their works and lip-sync them in live performances is astonishing these days. No, this did not occur even 20 years ago at the levels it does now. We expect such perfectionism, overly processed music, and imagery over creativity that this has become the norm. It is insane to expect no mistakes from a live performance no matter what the venue.

As I opined in another thread, this is hardly controversy worthy. But it is another instance of someone who just can't be real for whatever her reasons. How hard would it be for her to just say, yeah, it is too big a deal, too cold, and too difficult a song to perform live so we pre-recorded it. That's it. That's honest and understandable.

What makes it an issue for me and others, beyond the hyperbole falsely attributed, is that even three days later she just won't do that. She appears more concerned with her image and maintaining positive PR than just being real.

79. Rand Paul

Represents the bench mark of Rightwing nut job, its amazing that the majority of his constituents share his views and continue to vote him into office.
What a pathetic excuse for an American..

90. They didn't get upset when Yo Yo Ma was prerecorded.

Because it was too cold for him to play his cello.

But then they don't know jack shit about classical music. It doesn't exist in their world. The arts, liberal, visual, and performing, don't exist in their world, because they are frivolous and unnecessary.

94. Sure is! Ph.D. in Astrophysics and Rock Star.


Brian is one of my crushes. The other one is Lewis Black.



I saw Zappa in '82 or '83 on the You Are What You Is tour. He was truly amazing!!!

He had a 9 piece band and had to conduct the whole thing because of the key changes, time signature changes, etc.

98. Didn't know about that! Cool!

I never saw Queen live but was quite aware of News Of the World and their radio hits.

My first rock concert was The Righteous Brothers in 1964 when they were on top of the charts with Unchained Melody and You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling.

I was in elementary school. Yeah I'm old.

The grand-units and the mom came along, with me and my big sister. I'm convinced the grand-units must have thought it was gospel music because of their name.

They were frozen in their seats b/c it was LOUD and those clean cut white boys were singing that dreaded Nigra Music.

Mom flew out on her broom to the lobby after the first note, with a headache!!!

Big Sister and I were on the front row of the balcony, groovin'!!

Big Sister and I pulled a fast one on 'em!!!

93. House Committee On Over The Top Outrage is scheduling hearings

Absolutely no bills (excluding the weekly vote to repeal "Obmamacare") will come to a vote until everybody in the White House has been called in to testify. Ken Starr will be brought in as a the Special Guest Inquisitor and head the $70 million investigative commission.
