Beyonce

On Lip Sync Scandal

'Can I Live?'

1/27/2013 5:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0127_beyonce_webstagramBeyonce is finally breaking her silence on the crazy lip-syncing controversy that broke earlier this week ... kind of ... by posting a picture of herself online with the message "Can I live?"

Beyonce -- who has yet to address the allegations she faked her way through the National Anthem on Inauguration day -- posted the cryptic snapshot on Instagram Saturday night.

Bey is seen wearing a sweatshirt -- while practicing for her upcoming Super Bowl gig -- which poses the question "Can I Live?" ... the title of a song by her husband, Jay-Z.

It's clear from the pic ... either Beyonce is telling the world to back the heck off ... or she's just a totally supportive wife.



So we gotta ask ...

If you Lip Sync at the Super bowl it is no Big deal because all it is, is a performance of your music do what you want, but when you are Asked to Perform the National Anthem at the Presidential Inauguration, as a proud citizen of the United States You should give the President, The Vice President, and most of all the United States Marine Corp Band the Respect to do it live, It is an insult to our Military and our Country.

I am sure she will regret this decision her entire life. She had a chance to sing at a presidential Inauguration and didn't sing at all. Got caught Lipsyncing and was only called out after being caught. In 20 years no one is going to remember Blue Ivy or Single Ladies, but everyone is going to remember her Milli Vanilli moment.

So what!!!!! WOW Beyonce was lip sycing...What is the big frigin deal anyway???? She is a multi-talented singer, & is gorgeous, and btw, IT WAS HER VOICE< Besides, my opinion I think she's a far more superior singer than that annoying Kelly Clarkson.

Don't fake it. I hope she was paid with fake money. But it is typical how she tries to turn it and start blaming others. I have met people like this and they are all garbage.

I wish some tech would have the guts to leak out the raw recordings of this whore, Riri, and any of these other low rent, producer blowers.

THE BITCH WILL LIP SYNC SUPERBOWL HALF-TIME, GUARANTEED. SHE COULD NEVER SING LIVE AND MOVE ONSTAGE AT THE SAME TIME, POINT BLANK. SHE WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE OF FAR AWAY CAMERA ANGLES, STAGE SETS, DANCERS, AND HER SKRIPPER FLIPPING HAIR MOMENTS TO BLOCK PEEPS SEEING HER MILLI VANILLI ROUTINE UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL. #TRUTH!!

If Beyonce feels so much disdain for the public, and feels she is so above all of them; then she should try to remember who put her where she is. She is not absolute. Let's boycott her records, shows, etc. to refresh her mind and bring her down to earth. Then she will feel more respect for the people she is performing.

She is asking, "Can I sing live?", and her answer is, I don't know and I don't care. I don't think she plans on abandoning her prerecorded tracks. If she is live in concert, you are probably watching her lip sinc and dance to tracks. It is very hard to dance athletically and sing at the same time.


You notice that when people are serious about singing, they stand very stll and put all of their energy into their voice. Maybe some young metal singers ran around, but when they had to sing a long or high note, they usually stopped in their tracks.


Maybe she really needed the rest of Desntiny's Child to make her sound good. When you have a trio of voices, the others can make up for a weak or off key voice.
