^ yes, fair enough, but he knows there wont be a third inauguration speech.
^ yes, sort of.
I want to listen to that clever lip-synch video again to see if the dubbed words are germane.
The good thing about knowing it's your last term is that you can fight for your views on another level since you don't have to worry about re-election.
Seriously? This is a scandal? People are acting like she whipped out her titty live at the Super Bowl or something....
Bad lip reading
Author of Lost in a Dream. If you want to make me smile, read it and tell me what you think.
Out of all the things to get mad at people for, of all the things to critique, this is what people choose?? Not to question or comment against corrupt politicians, corportations, unfair business practices, socio-economic inequalities, BUT a lip-sync at a stupid event??? People are stupid.
i heard that the reason why she lipsynced at the ball was because she was saving her voice for the super bowl. is this true?
with that said, she really ain't all that as a singer to begin with. she's very overrated as are most mainstream r&b singers are anyway like alicia keys and bitch ass neyo. i would have said that she doesn't look all that either where i could see why guys are all over her and her "bootylicious" body. never understood the hype about her ass, i mean as in her asscheeks for real, either. she never turned me on BUT then again, i'm gay so what do i know? maybe that's why i didn't see the hype with her and jennifer lopez bodies to begin with, pretending to be intended in them when i had none. oh well.
one thing about the closet/you don't have to hurry/it will be bad tomorrow/so brother, don't you worry
When is this stupid fucking thread going to die?
The topic was dead history the next day...
I had hoped for a nice clean kill by the mods.
Sloppy unsubscribe happening now.
I thought the Obama stand in did well too............
Maybe Obama lipsynced too so he wouldn't mess up again?
In 2009, America had two REAL musicians - Yo Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman - perform "Air and Simple Gifts" during the inauguration. And it's not like they faked it.
...oh wait, yes, they did.
^But Yo Yo Ma isn't as fun to stomp all over considering 90% of Americana Ponderosa Suburbia doesn't even know who that is, much less the type of music, and it's not a beat you can dance to and they didn't snatch trophies and they're not Beysus The Wonderful With The Lace Front Showing.

unofficial official mini meet Friday- Saturday April 11-12, 2014
Well I still like her other type of vocals. Her sound is unique and perfect for pop and everybody recognizes her voice the second they hear it.
She has natural vocal talent but she never would have been as successful doing powerhouse type of vocals.
But either way I think she gave up too easily on singing live and is now completely out of practice. Even if the vocals are not the main priority in her shows she still could have singed it partly live with a backup track rather than completely lipping it all every singe time. MATM in Times Square and VMA 2000 are good examples on doing that type of mixture.
Beyoncé Super Bowl Halftime Show Rehearsal: Day 1
I already had a post typed up:
Beyonce Inauguration Performance: Audio Engineer Says 'No Question' She was Singing
But it seems that I don't have to anymore. Bam:
"Beyoncé Sings National Anthem LIVE Suck It, Haters!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Here's the press conference held earlier today. Around 12:30 is where she begins speaking on it. Looking back at the Inauguration performance, you can hear a slight echo and hear her actually singing along with the track (proving the previous guy's video as true.)
Britney fans like to point it out when other singers do it because she gets 90% of the critisicm despite it being a common practise in the business.
Again the difference is that she doesn't try to hide it while most others do.
And it's an exaggeration that she has never sung live (although she has now completely stopped doing it for few years now).
Comparing a Britney Spears concert and a ceremony with the national anthem is simply comparing apples and oranges.
Recently I heard a 'wise guy' story that I had a party at my home for twenty-five men. It's an interesting story, but I don't know twenty-five men I'd want to invite to a party. ~Joan Crawford
Second, the woman is dead. Get over your petty hatred or shut the fuck up about it; keep it to yourself, it is really old, really tired, and it's not like anyone you like is any better, more memorable or more famous for their voice than she was, ruining her career or not.
Third, where does the OP mention he is a stan for Houston? And if he does, who died and made you the resident Whitney hater? Each time a member mentions her you TRY and read them to filth. Someone needs to remind you that stepping on shit still makes you smell like shit.
"There’s death on the horizon,
and I’ll run to behold your sacrifice..."
Please stop saying Shitney... it's very disrespectful to her and her fans.
Celine Dion and Mariah Carey are good examples. 99,999% of people believe they have never done such a thing because they are powervocalists and only use pre-recorded vocals when miming.
Out of all the celebrity pop acts Britney is the one who lipsyncs the most. But sometimes people speak like she's the only one doing it.
Janet Jackson and Cher lipsync OFTEN and often just use the CD vocals just like Britney. Nobody seems to give a shit.
I'm not a 12 year old girl so I don't use terms like that.
I'm a bit stunned that this is even a topic of conversation in the States; don't you all have enough to talk about?
At outdoor events in dodgy weather, it is standard practice for the music to be pre-recorded. The opening of the Sydney Olympics was totally pre-recorded including the National Anthem and yet there wasn't even a murmur in the press. Get over it, people. We no longer live in the age of failures being allowed or accepted so pre-recording is a must. Give the girl a break, FFS.
Some people don't want to talk about social issues and politics every single day.
Britney is far more interesting a topic, tbqh. She's more fascinating at a standstill than neraly all people at the height of their powers.
Yoko Ono was busy sucking Lady Gaga's cock
“She’s a very, very mysterious individual. I don’t know what’s going on in her head half the time, and I believe that mystique is part the reason why she has survived for so many years. I’ve worked with her now for five or six months; you don’t get much out of her and that makes her more interesting in a weird way.”
Since the whole breakdown it's like we haven't seen much of her personality. The few times she does interviews it's very scripted by her team.
She's in some ways becoming a female Michael Jackson. Hopefully with a different ending though. She almost pulled a Marilyn Monroe back in 2008.
I've grown quite fond on Yoko Ono as of late. Still can only take her singing in limited doses. But I've been enjoying her art and writing.
She comes here every year to make sure the city spends more on electricity.
That comment isn't at you Laufey. Just at this topic in general.
I'm late to this topic, but I am disgusted that so many so-called journalists who reported that Beyonce lip synched. Beyonce was singing to a backing track. Unless the definition of lip synching changed after the inauguration, the definition does not include any form of live singing. I also agree with those who stated that there are far more serious things to get worked up about and it's a standard practice in the music industry.
Someone said people don't care about Britney lipping because people already know she does it and doesn't pretend to sing live. Britney has been clowned her whole career for lip synching. People just now know she's going to do it now, but I remember within the last few years fans being upset and wanting refunds for her lip synching a whole concert. Any singer who lip synchs doesn't do so with the intention of the audience knowing they are doing it or they wouldn't even mouth the words.
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.
I mean seriously lol, where in the OP did I mention Britney? Sometimes reading through topics on this forum is so funny because it's almost as if some people are reading something that's not even there.
I have to say I found myself enjoying it at parts. I don't really like the songs she sang though but that's personal preference. She's an amazing vocalist though
I still prefer Madonna's performance last year only because it had Vogue in it and I fucking love Vogue. I also thought Madonna's stage was so bad ass compared to Bey's stage. The visuals of Madonna's show were amazing in my opinion. And Madonna's dancers I feel are far superior to Bey's dancers but Bey's show doesn't really showcase the dancers.
I'm not sure if she beat the record Madonna set last year for viewership. My favorite halftime show is still Janet's.

I thought she was good, but I am not a fan. She is a great entertainer that is for sure. It made me a bit sad when the two other girls from Destiny's Child showed up and nobody seem to realize who they where or at least it seemed that way to me. And to add insult to injury, their microphones seem to have a much lower volume than Beyonce's so you could barely hear them, I wonder why?
