(Watch) Beyonce’ Silences Lip Syncing Critics During Her Superbowl Press Conference

Posted by: cnikky


It’s official…Beyonce’ Knowles Carter is one of the classiest performers on the planet.

Beyonce, who just re-signed with the Pepsi company as its Global Brand Ambassador (for $50 Million dollars), spoke for the first time yesterday about her highly anticipated Superbowl halftime show and the Inauguration lip syncing nonsense. But first, she shut up the naysayers in the classiest way possible–by singing the National Anthem live, with no track.

And she ended with a laugh saying, “Thank you guys so much.  Any questions?”

Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show Press Conference

Mrs. Knowles Carter told the sea of press that she does feel nervous bout the show and got chills when she first drove past the Superdome because it’s so much history there.  But since her family is from New Iberia, LA, she feels ready and comfortable for her performance as she’s leaving her own legacy.


Of course, the first question that was asked was if she indeed sang to a pre-recorded track during the Inauguration, and she responded:

Yes. I am a perfectionist. One thing about me is that I practice until my feet bleed. I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra. It was a live television show. A very emotional show for me. One of my proudest moments. Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper soundtrack, I did not feel comfortable taking a risk. It was about the president and the Inauguration and I wanted to make him proud so I decided to sing along to my pre-recorded track which is very common in the industry and I’m very proud of my performance..

On whether Kelly Rowland and Michelle would be performing with her during the half-time show: I don’t know. I can’t really give you any details. I’m sorry!

On why she decided to share moments with her daughter in her upcoming documentary: I feel like my daughter has changed me and changed my life and has given me so much purpose. I feel like this movie is very necessary and it shows a human side. We are all human and I feel like some point, my job is to protect her, but I’m happy I can tell my story on my terms.


On how she and Jay-z normally spends their Football Sundays: You would have to ask Jay-Z what he does. I’m usually on the computer, pulling references, and looking at my rehearsals. But I will say, I do go to sleep and wake up with a lot of football. I have the utmost respect for the players.

On if she loves haters I love haters. No shame. No hate.

On whether she will sing live or to a track for her Superbowl halftime performance

I will absolutely be singing live.  I am well rehearsed.  And this is what I was born to do.


On whether the flack she caught for singing to her own track at the Inauguration affected what she will do in the future, like at the Grammys

It was always the plan to sing live for the Superbowl.  And who said I was performing at The Grammys?

On the pressure of Inauguration vs. Superbowl halftime show

This weekend, I’m performing at the halftime show, and before, the event was not about me.  I’ve moved on to focusing on this halftime show.


On the color of her toothbrush and why

I love this question!  It’s blue….blue and white.  Blue and yellow maybe?  {Laughs}

On details of her intricate performance

There’s 7.5 mins for the volunteers to put the stage together.  I met the volunteers and they’re so incredible.  We’re all working together and I can’t give too much away.  But every second matters and we’re WORKING.  I had to condense my career into 12 minutes.

On when she’s going back on tour

Soon.  I may have an announcement after the performance.  And the fans should stay tuned to see.

On being nervous about her upcoming documentary

I am so nervous about putting that out.  It was really interesting directing and editing mysef and seeing all the mistakes I’ve made.  But still putting it in the film.  I feel like it’s time for people to really get to know me.  And to see a different side.  I’m really curious and scared…but now it’s too late.  I’m happy with it.


On what she’ll do to relax after the Superbowl

I’m going to be with my daughter.  I miss her so much.  I keep telling her, I’ll be right back at 9p on Sunday!
