Show us your tweets: Beyonce lip-syncing (lip-singing?) edition

Posted 8:04pm on Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2013

The Twitterverse has been reverberating to the sounds of Beyoncé-gate for more than a week, perhaps in anticipation of the singer's Super Bowl performance this weekend. She has her defenders who claim that there's no way she could have lip-synced at the presidential inauguration and detractors who say it's the mini-scandal is proof she's a hack. Whatever. As successful as Beyoncé and hubbie Jay-Z are, she can just reply that she might have 99 problems but a mic ain't one.

If Beyonce did lip-sync the anthem yesterday, it was the best lip-syncing I've ever seen. And I should know -- I have lips. @colmtobin

I guess the Beyonce performance was as real as her songwriting credits. @MuuMuse

I wouldn't blame Beyonce for lip-syncing the National Anthem. Even most Americans don't understand it -- its like a drunk rant @WillBlackWriter

"Beyonce's voice was so fake Manti Te'o tried to date it." -- guy at work that thinks he's clever. @TheSoup

People judge Beyonce and don't like her as if she forgot to pay your bills on time. Over it. @Duanecia

Does the fact that Beyonce lip-synched the National Anthem mean Obama isn't officially president? @indecision

Look y'all, Beyonce could stab somebody and I'd be fine with it. I don't care if she lip sync'd or not. @kiwirabbitfru

I just found out not only did Beyonce lip sync the National Anthem, she didn't even write the song!!! Ahhh! So sick of these phonies! @AndrewNorelli

"Madame Sectretary, are we to believe that you never read the memo addressed to you about Beyonce's plan to lip sync the national anthem?" @eclecticbrotha

Good news -- if the voice continues to malfunction, Beyonce's offered to lip-sync for me tonight. @piersmorgan
