Beyoncé Kind of Addresses Lip-Synching Scandal


(Getty Images)Beyoncé Knowles still hasn't commented on reports that she lip-synched "The Star-Spangled Banner" at President Barack Obama's Inaugural Ceremony last week, but on Saturday, she slyly touched on the scandal in a black-and-white shot posted to Instagram.

In the photo, Knowles shrugs, arms out, in a sweatshirt that reads, "Can I live?" The singer's mouth hangs open in an expression of faux-befuddlement.

Obviously, Bey has a sense of humor about all the hoopla. But New York senator Chuck Schumer? Not so much.

Schumer, who organized and hosted the inaugural event, told the New York Post at a Sunday press conference that Knowles hadn't apologized to him for the incident. "I have not heard from her before, during or after,” Schumer stated. “She did not talk to me at all. I didn’t say any words to her, period."

Okay, then.

We'd be shocked if Beyoncé didn't find some way to pay lip service to the ordeal during her Super Bowl halftime performance next month. Hopefully she'll have Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams to back her up on it... although that's looking a little less likely these days.
