Beyonce to finally face media over lip-synched inaugural anthem
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Beyonce is expected to face the media on Thursday as she previews her halftime performance at the Super Bowl football championship, but the focus will likely be on her performance at President Barack Obama's inauguration earlier this month.
The superstar has not spoken publicly since it was alleged that she lip-synched her rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner at the inauguration. Since she has not addressed the controversy, it is expected the topic will be the main focus of her afternoon press conference in New Orleans.
Her critically praised performance came under scrutiny less than a day later, when a representative from the US Marine Band said she was not singing live and the band's accompanying performance was taped. The group soon backed off its initial statement and said no one could tell if she was singing live or not.
The singer likely would rather concentrate on questions about her set list for Sunday and her upcoming HBO documentary, Life Is But A Dream.
