You may have heard: There was some controversy surrounding Beyonce and her lip-synched National Anthem performance at Barack Obama's Inauguration last week. Which brings us to today, when she answered the critics with a stunt that sounds like it was invented by a Beyonce fan fiction blog except that it totally happened in real life in front of hundreds of media members in New Orleans.
Beyonce opens the press conference by singing the National Anthem.— Jim Trotter (@SI_JimTrotter) January 31, 2013
But wait, that's not all.
Beyonce finishes National Anthem and asks "any questions"— Monique Walker Jones (@moniquenjones) January 31, 2013
OH SNAP, Y'ALL.
TAKE SHOTS AT THE QUEEN AND YOU BEST NOT MISS.
There's full video over here, too.
This is like the time that Queen Beyonce's husband Jay-Z was criticized by Liam Gallagher for playing the traditionally rock-centric Glastonbury Festival, so Jay opened his set by playing "Wonderwall". That was totally awesome, and now Beyonce has her own version, because of course she does. The lesson here is that whatever you think of Beyonce, you should never mess with Beyonce, ever. Criticizing Queen Bey will just end with you getting played and looking pathetic and wondering why you can't be more like Beyonce.
Take notes, haters.
