I feel that people like to make things a bigger deal than it is, especially since this is something normal, apparently even Whitney Houston lip song the The National Anthem and the only person who didn’t sing to a recorded track at a big event was Christina Aguilera and if we all remember correctly she messed up the words and people were pissed.
When it comes to why Beyonce decided to sing to a pre-recorded track at the last-minute is unknown however a spokesperson for the US Marine Corps issued a statement confirming that Beyonce did chose to sing to a pre-recorded track at the last-minute for unknown reasons:
“We don’t know why Beyoncé decided to use prerecorded music. All music [for inaugural ceremonies] is prerecorded as a matter of course, and that’s something we’ve done for years and years. The Marine Band did perform live throughout the ceremony but we received last-minute word that Beyoncé wanted to use the recording.”
I honestly could care less why, and I truly don’t understand why its a big deal. However seeing that it’s Beyonce and people act as if she has a substance other than red blood pumping in her veins, I’m completely not shocked that people are upset about something so silly.
