Beyonce "I faked it" .... So what! ..... move on

http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2013/01/31/170774920/beyonc-on-lip-syncing-i-did-not-feel-comfortable-taking-a-risk

And this is the first time a women "faked it" to make a man happy?


"I'm a perfectionist," Beyoncé said. She explained that she couldn't practice with the Marine Band and taking the weather and other circumtances into account she did not feel "comfortable taking a risk."

24. Difference is

She lip-synched to a recording of her own voice. Milli Vanilli lip synched to someone else's voices and accepted a grammy for it.

4. Really, I don't see what the big deal is.

At least she can sing, unlike a lot of the auto-tune hacks these days.

19. Of course, in the studio you can do take after take after take to get it right.

Singing live is taking a risk.

8. She IS good!

Really good SSB. Flouncy, but tastefully done.

I can't name anything she's done. But then I'm not aware of much post-Monk.

9. "i decided to sing along with a pre-recorded track"

that dodges the relevant question. i thought it was obvious that the marine band was "lip-synching" (or whatever the term is when applied to non-vocal instruments). the question was whether or not the vocals we heard were live -- whether she was fake singing or her mike was turned off.

12. Wait until folks find out that the Super Bowl half-time shows

have been prerecorded for decades.

15. That's nothing -- wait 'till they find out that the entire Super Bowl

is actually two gamesters in Anaheim playing Madden NFL '13.

16. That is just wrong!

They should stay with '12 until the end of the season!
Switching versions will mess things up for the bookies.

22. The sponsors demanded it -- the newer version has the "wardrobe malfunction" enhancement.

Depending on how many Miller Lites the operators are allowed, both teams could wind up nekkid by the end of the third quarter.

It could wind up having higher ratings than full-contact baseball!

13. I'm glad she sang it live and proved that she could.

The fake outrage over this was so ridiculous to begin with.

Oh wait.
